Rideau Canal still waiting for winter

The historic Rideau Canal in Ottawa is waiting for mother nature to cooperate and thicken the ice before skaters can once again enjoy the longest skating rink in the world. Soon, they were starting to flood the canal yesterday and forecast temperatures are looking nice and cold for the rest of the week.

The Fanjet is the skiers best friend this winter in the eastern regions of Canada when mother nature does not cooperate.

Snowing in Ottawa

Took a stroll at lunch to enjoy the freshly falling snow in the downtown core of the nations capital today. Temperature was nice and the new snow was a welcome sight for me after a weekend that featured only rain and temperatures above 0C. Looks like we are in for some more snow this evening, awesome!

Snowshoe with Rivyr

Rivyr , Autumn and I got out for a short snowshoe hike, wind was howling and snow was coming down. Conditions were perfect with 4 cm of fresh snow on top of the 30cm base.
