It snowed yesterday! Huge, fluffy, flakes of snow! I *almost* missed Ontario. That is, until I had to drive in it.
I had *just* finished brushing off the car.
Ukee doesn’t have a snow plow. A backhoe labored slowly to clear the streets. One scoop at a time.
The tree branches began to sag. Sheets of slush formed on top of the salt water in the harbour.
Beyond the dock, six sealions floated in a raft, quietly rolling in the water, their flippers raised, as if they were catching snowflakes.
