Snowshoeing again

 After lunch I was out on the snowshoes for 75 minutes, Some bare spots showing up in the fields.

 Also along the edge of the woods the snow has melted.

 Crab apple tree in our back yard suffered some severe damage, the weight of the snow just pulled the branches off.
But it looks like the Ruhbarb overwintered well.
Light rain in morning, overcast the rest of the day with a high of 3

Confederation Trail

 This afternoon I walked the Trail west from Milton for 3 km. There was one person out before me.
I would say that the trail is still 75% snow covered.

 West of marker 168 parts of the trail is showing some bare portions.

 I turned back about .5 km west of marker 168, Looking west the trail is snow covered as far as I could see.

The creek at Milton has a good flow of water. Light rain at +3 with a light wind.

Sign of spring

 Looks like this bridge didn't wash away yet.

 This is what we got this morning, about 6 cm of wet snow.

 I was out on the snoe shoes for 50 minutes and went as far as the edge of the business park.

And there I saw one of the first signs of spring, pussy willows.
Temperature about +3 with wind 35 gusting to 50 km/h.

 The ball field is starting to show some bare ground.

And I now can see the fence bot still lots of snow in this area. We had light rain most of the day at +3.
Forecast is for some fresh snow overnight.

I am back

 I was in SC for a few days, mostly rainy days but warm.

 This was the bike I was using, it took a couple new tubes and a lot of oil to get it road worthy.
I was able to log a couple hundred km's.

 Still lots of snow around here, but I can see the creek now and so far the bridge is still in place.

I was out on the snowshoes this evening and went down the creek. Rain in the afternoon at +3

Sign of spring

I cycled to New Haven and back again today. There is some bare ground showing in this field.
We had about 15 mm of rail last night and sunny at 5 today.  So the snow is starting to diminish .

Cycling again

 After lunch I cycled to New Haven turning at the intersection of route 9 and the Highway route 1.

The drifts on the street across from us look like this, hard to believe it is April 7.
Mostly sunny at +4 with a light south breeze.

Fallen tree

 I had cut the top off at this point.

 One more section off here.

The third section is off and that is as far as I go. I was using the buck saw.
The tree was in the woods near the ball field.
It was -10 in the morning but got up to -2 in the afternoon. I was to Montague in the morning and was out on the snowshoes for a hour after lunch.

I was out on the snowshoes for 75 minutes, there was someone out on skis before me.
After the snowshoeing I shoveled snow at the end of the driveway, out back of the drift trying to improve the visibility for oncoming traffic.  Sunny at -2 and then we had a couple cm on snow this evening.

Sinking snow

 I was out on the snowshoes for a hour today, also I was out for 30 minutes yesterday.
Today I was to the business park.

The snow has settled some in the ball field, I now can see some of the fence.
It was overcast at 6 with no wind. It started to rain just as I was getting home from snowshoeing.

Thursday, April 2, 2015


I was out on the snowshoes for a hour, I went as far as the Business park. Under this snow is the creek and a bridge. We have had some snow melt but still lots to go.
It was sunny at -2 but the wind was gusting to 45 km/h for a wind chill of -11.
I would have gone cycling if the wind had been lighter.
