Some Perspective

This past Christmas weekend, the Canadian Prairies has had historically mild temperatures.

This is what it looks like around here, as of December 25, 2011.  The location is a few miles south of my town.

At Boundary Dam reservoir...only a thin skin of ice at Sunset Boat launch.  Normally, this would all be frozen solid and dotted with ice-fishing shacks.

This was what was going on outside the front door of my house on October 27, 2010

Oh dear, and at the top of this photo, I can see the huge trunks of my neighbour's big, beautiful spruce trees.  I miss them so much.   Their fate was also snow-related.  A very nasty late April blizzard brought them down.
