Our house in the snow

Front yard in the snow

I was going to lead with a picture of our house in the snow, but it isn't nearly so sexy as I thought it would be. So instead, I give you a picture of the view from our house at night.

Our house in the snow

See? Not so sexy. All grey and blah. This photo was taken at about 1:30 in the afternoon. Yes, skies like that are normal in the winter here. This is the only reason I can figure that the cost of real estate is so reasonable here. If you can live through sunless winters, it's a great place to be.

Ahh, snow. We're supposed to get a blizzard here tonight, since an "Alberta clipper" is moving through the area. GREAT. I love that night picture of your tree.

The best part about eternally-gray skies is that juuust when I start to get depressed about never seeing the sun, Mother Nature busts out a 60-degree February afternoon. And that keeps me going for another six weeks of gloom.

I love the warmth in the view FROM your house ... beautiful. We are already looking forward to spring here, though locals tell us there are only two seasons here: Winter and Getting Ready fo Winter.
