Another aspect of the landscape we live in here in the valley is the watershed itself, with the Beaver River and all its tributaries. And there are other rivers nearby, the Saugeen and the Bighead. So at some point as you drive around you leave one watershed and drive into the next. In fact, though all the rainfall here eventually drains down into the Beaver, our house is actually quite a bit closer to a branch of the Saugeen, the Rocky Saugeen, which is only 3 farms to the west.
I'm linking to Sunlit Sunday, with these photos from a brilliant January day. But it certainly wasn't like this today. Though only 1cm. was forecast, with some sunny breaks, we actually got 6-8 inches, with no sunny breaks and high winds, causing drifting. Drove south for the day and the latter part of the drive home was downright scary through snowy white-outs. But for a better mood, check out the 'Sunlit Sunday' photos!
