Driving to Owen Sound today we watched the snow clinging to branches most of the way, turning the world to a white fantasy.. Parts of the woodland we drove by were just a tangle of white branches.

It's hard to think of a worse day weather-wise, than today. With the temperature hovering just above freezing, and a cold rain most of the day, it was just about as unpleasant a day as you can imagine! What snow we had turned to slush and the heavy dark cloud cover never changed. No wonder November has such a bad reputation. It wasn't quite so bad on Saturday when we headed down into the valley for a drive.

Saturday morning we headed for a craft show in the museum. Then we decided to go for a drive, even though the day was dull and rain threatened. This time we headed east to Thornbury, and eventually made a large loop down into the valley to Kimberley, and home again.

Let me share a few more pictures of the road between here and Owen Sound, and help you relate to the landscape around here.

I've been trying to find a way to describe the landscape around here, the rural countryside and how it's changing, but I'm not getting out for any of those countryside drives except when we go back and forth to Owen Sound twice a week for my physiotherapy sessions. So I'm going to share my impressions of the land along Hwy 26 from here west to try and give you an overall impression.
I mentioned the "catastrophic" spread of corn mould in rural Ontario, leading to vomitoxins, which render the crop unusable (except perhaps for ethanol production). I'm told by a reliable source that this is only a problem further south in Ontario; there are no known cases here in Grey County.

We've been looking at generators, for those days when winter storms cut the power. We've had as long as 5 days without power over the past few years, and it gets a little chilly! But now that I depend on an electric lift to get in and out of bed, to get into the house, and of course to run my wheelchair, it's rather more important to always have electricity.
