Gravel shoulder

After Saturday's snow and rain all the streets and trails are icy. So I went to the new highway but the pavement had ice under the snow. So I tried the gravel shoulder, not great but doable til the snow was 3-5 cm deep. It was sunny with a temp of -7

Saw woodpecker

I was snowshoeing today for a hour or so, logged 6,000 steps.
#1 pic shows that a squirrel was in the tree. #2 shows chips on the snow which means the woodpecker is at work, it is in #3.
Someone was out on the snowshoes before me which makes it a lot easy going.

Snow day

Today was a snow day so I walked to the business park and back, about 3 km. I spend a few minutes at the tree taking some more branches, small ones as I only had the campsaw.
Temp at zero so it is wet snow, which does not drift.

Winter scene

 This is how it looked one day last week, then we had a wind storm and lost out power for 20 hours

Cycling around Charlottetown

First clips taken Sunday, we had rain overnight and then sun at +5 today so a lot of the ice disappeared. I was able to cycle the last four days, today was the best day. Friday & Saturday I was just around Cornwall streets for a hour each day.
