Photos of last night's snowstorm. I'm glad that the storm wasn't as fierce as the weather office was forecasting. I would not want to shovel all that snow. It wasn't too cold last night, either. Great night for photography.
The warnings started on Friday: Heavy snowfall, 10 – 15 cm of snow expected. After Friday's freezing rain warnings, it would be best to listen to what Environment Canada had to say. Snow started falling Saturday morning. Throughout the afternoon, periodically glancing at the weather radar ...

On a warm autumn day, we just had to get out. Sure, we could have sanded and painted the baseboards as planned. But we went for a drive in the country instead. Somehow, we ended up at a winery. And a mineral spa. Such is life.
We have been experiencing an uncharacteristically warm autumn. Yesterday, for example, it was reported on the news that Saskatchewan broke 27 daytime high temperature records. I guess it's only fair. We had such a long, cold winter, followed by a delayed, cool spring. So far this fall, ...

Found last weekend:
“You should take a walk down there,” says Bruce, pointing to the lane in back of the old Arlington Hotel, a popular watering hole where a group of us had just wrapped up lunch over beer. “Let's see how many you find,” he adds as he and his sister, Sandra start across a deserted street.

It was a nice day outside, certainly much warmer than what's coming tomorrow and Monday, but I got sidetracked thinking about even warmer days....
At Saskatoon's latitude, February 15 is the date when the sun reaches above the horizon high enough to chase away my winter blues. Every year, it's like someone waves a magic wand over the landscape. That's the date when you can really feel the warmth of the sun on your face.

Mmmm.... coffee...
Camp coffee is my favourite. The aroma wafting through the morning air starts the day off right. It doesn't matter if it's raining, or if it's minus 40 degrees Celsius. Coffee makes every day warm and sunny. I don't mean cowboy coffee, either, although that's pretty good — coarsely ground beans ...

What happens when you find a box of old negatives in the attic? Can you find the exact place where the photographs were taken?
What if you could go back in time? What if, one day, when you were a grown-up, you went back to your old home and climbed the ladder into your parents' attic? And, way in back, in a dim corner, barely illuminated by the flashlight in your hand, there was a box, a trunk, a large, dusty wooden ...

Fighting off a horrible cold today. On the bright side, it's given me some time to update the blog.
Deep in the recesses of my mind is a distant memory of a place my parents took me to once. It was a beautiful place, a canyon with groomed pathways, a lush garden, and a long waterfall that saturated the air with a cool mist. The water seemed to flow out of the sky. It splashed over rocks into a ...

Personal projects always get short shrift. That's not good, because personal projects are the most engaging, the most energizing, the most rewarding and the most creative. But they fall behind because other work pays the bills. Anyway, I figured this weekend would be a good time to catch up on a ...
