You've heard about our visit to Barrie, getting that button on the dashboard pushed and visiting the gigantic Bradford greenhouses, so you have heard the interesting part of this story. But for this post you have to let me indulge my interest in the glacial landscape between Meaford and Barrie, which I have always found fascinating.

CAUTION! Far too many photographs, scroll through quickly!
After several posts describing our big snowstorm last weekend, I am taking you back to Barrie. Remember when we learned about the button on the dashboard, a very easy fix and much appreciated!
To pick up the story, after leaving the car dealer, and braving a couple of miles on Hwy. 400, we found Bradford Nursery which Mrs. F.G. wanted to visit and spent an enjoyable hour or two exploring the galleries. It was huge! Not actually our kind of place, but Mrs. F.G. hoped she might find the odd interesting plant, so that is what she was looking for.

Although we got a snow dump of historic proportions last weekend, it is melting fast. The sun has been out on and off, and the temperature is above freezing. The difference between -3° and +3° is remarkable, and now it is +5°! At this rate we will soon have no snow left.
HELP - I am having trouble with certain keys on my laptop. Quotation marks, accents, slashes, are all replaced by É. Anyone got any bright ideas of what Ièm doing wrongÉ

They clear snow, that is what! They either shovel, buy a snowblower, of if they are like me, they hire a snow removal service (in our case out of necessity). I have frequently heard the noise of the snowblowers outside this weekend!

Well, at least we did not get the dump of four feet or more that Buffalo and area got, but we did get about two feet, and it is still snowing lightly with more to come. It is early in the season for this much snow, but not all that unusual to get a big heavy snowfall at some point in November. I love storms like this though, so I put together some pairs of photos from yesterday and today, for your viewing pleasure. For your convenience I have repeated the photos from yesterday, first in each case.

The visit to the plant nursery in Barrie will have to wait while I tell you about the snow squalls we are getting today. You know winter is really here once we are getting serious snow squalls. It is 8-10 inches deep now, more in places, with a forecast of up to two feet of snow over the weekend.
