Welcome to another edition of Photo Friday.

camera photo friday
The objective is to post your own images, based on a prompt provided by the Photo Friday staff.



We are in the throes of winter here (Toronto, Canada) and the snow started early, back in November. There was some thawing in between but now that February has arrived, it seems there’s no let-up. Although I love living here, the weather can sometimes be hard to take. Thinking warm thoughts!

  1. Hi Debbie,

    Wow, that sure is a lot of snow. We don’t get snow here but it’s been cold and I’m ready for warmer weather. I’m sure you are too :). Thanks for sharing the pics! Stay warm!

    1. Yup; it seems this winter is even worse than last year and that broke all kinds of records! 🙁 No more snow at the moment, but we are in a DEEP freeze here – minus 22C with the windchill (~7F) and they are predicting minus 40C (same in F) this weekend! May I come and visit you, Corina? 😉

  2. It’s been relatively wet here, some days like a monsoon with such stormy, i.e., rainy weather. A pair of shoes I wore about a week ago got totally drenched! I stuck paper inside to dry it, put it in front of the gas fireplace, and after awhile with hardly any progress, ended up tossing it in a cloth bag into the dryer! 😉 (I need rubber boots!) <3

    1. Sounds pretty soggy, for sure, Elly! At this time of year, the only good thing I can say about the snow is that it’s cleaner than mud. Definitely a plus with multiple dogs. 🙂 Good idea about the boots. Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.

    1. Thanks, Suzy. 🙂 That last one was taken from the threshold of our front door – freshly fallen snow. I saw your post too – sunny but cold is better than cold and dreary. 🙂 Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.

    1. Ha ha, indeed! 🙂 I would love to be in south Florida right now, Marcia. We didn’t have any snow at Christmas, which is the only time I appreciate it, but we sure are getting dumped on now! Come on Spring!!

  3. It is no secret, when I think of Canadians, I think of snow. Hey, I even wrote a story called, “Calgary Snow.”

    That bottom picture is one of the coolest images I have ever seen. I got a chill gazing.

    Have a fantastic weekend, Debbie and Friends…

    1. Hi Myke: Yes, that’s the usual stereotype, along with beer, hockey and Mounties. 😀 Calgary is much further north (and west) than we are and the weather must be brutal there in winter. This is southern Canada and, believe it or not, we are in what is popularly known as “The Banana Belt”, aka “Carolinian Canada”. Generally milder than the rest of the country, except southern British Columbia. Canada’s Banana Belt
      Glad you enjoyed the photos – it’s snowing yet again! Sigh….

  4. I think the storm we got on Sunday must have headed your way after it was done with us! Sure was a big dump, and we’re still dealing with it in our laneway and on the side streets. Fun times.

    1. Oh yeah – lots of “fun”! 😛 These storms usually do move eastward. We are expecting another huge load over the weekend. Spring can’t get here soon enough! Thanks for commiserating.

  5. It’s cold here in UK. Not snowing everyday but it’s really cold that it hurts. I can’t even begin to think how I would survive in such cold weather like you are experiencing, Debbie. I must say that the pictures look perfect, really beautiful. 🙂

    1. I try to stay inside as much as possible. 😛 Hopefully, spring will come early this year. UK weather is pretty cold and damp, isn’t it? Also not so pleasant. Glad you liked the photos! Thanks for visiting.

    1. Welcome to The Den, Ina Tales. 🙂 I’d love to visit Arizona sometime, preferably in the winter. For us, the snow is more of an aggravation than a treat, but I’m glad somebody likes it. Thanks for visiting.

  6. This looks beautiful, but I know only from the warm and cozy comforts of the home! We will be leaving for a cold place like this in a week’s time and I am looking forward and dreading it at the same time! 🙂

    1. You got that right, Shilpa! 🙂 Have a good trip and make sure you pack your woolies. Feeling cold is incredibly uncomfortable. Thanks for dropping by.

  7. Love the pictures. The snow is so pretty. Especially freshly fallen, untouched snow. Just gorgeous. I know you guys who live up north are sick of the winters but I long for a winter like you have. I’m so sick of having 75 and 80-degree days in January and February! I want a winter!!! Thanks for sharing the photos, it brought back some wonderful memories of snowy days spent in Niagara Falls…

    1. Hahaha! We always want what we can’t have, yes? 😀 I would trade those Jan. & Feb. temps with you, any time!
      it does look pretty from the inside, where it’s warm.
      Glad you got a little taste of home from the photos. Have a good weekend.

  8. An icy wind is blowing over here. The sidewalks are slippery, and if you just stand,… you get pushed along from the wind…but not exactly in the direction you want to go, lol. I can understand you loving where you live, despite the weather. We spent a week in Toronto and loved the city. We thought it was very European, and we saw some great sidewalk artists too.

    1. Icy winds are the norm here, unfortunately, Angelika. 😛 We actually live in the suburbs, but are close enough to Toronto (~30 km) to go any time, which we do often, like the Bob Seger concert. It’s a beautiful, multi-cultural city and the fourth largest in North America, (just behind Chicago, which I’ve also visited [in summer] and liked a lot. The winters are even worse than ours, though). I think winters in Germany may have gotten colder over the years. What I recall is mostly dreary rain, rain, rain and not much snow. That was in Nordrhein-Westfalen, so it might be different elsewhere. Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend. 🙂
