Frozen Water falling from the Sky

A freezing blast of Winter has hit B.C. with lots of snow and icy winter temperatures.
For a region that usually enjoys temperate rainforest conditions, we are not used to this type of craziness. We don't have to shovel rain!
And rain is what we are used to!

We have outdoor Exercise equipment we can enjoy any season of the year. Usually wet from rain!

Boardwalk on Mill Lake to take walks along. Usually ducks swimming alongside.

A little punch of colour is always nice in a world suddenly white.

Kariton Art Gallery situated right in the middle of the park. You can picnic here even in winter if you want.

Lots of tables to choose from.

Or benches to sit and enjoy.
Rotary Crossing Playground is empty of children playing. I think all the kids are sliding down hills.

Schools close here when snow flies. Kids like that a lot!


The dock in the main parking area of Mill Lake has the only patch of unfrozen water. The ducks have to swim somewhere!

Cannot imagine floating around in that frigid cold water like these ducks are doing!

I guess the water conditions are not conducive to swimming, being the lake is frozen!

Frozen like this!

Your photos are beautiful! I love the pop of color breaking through the winter.

Seeing the ducks in the water reminded me of a pond in PA...there was warm water pumped into the pond during the winters...thousands of birds were always happily swimming...

Those punchees of red and blue in your snow photos are so mesmerizing!

You've got more snow that we've had so far. It's been very mild here. I'm missing the snow as a matter of fact.
The snow really did make the red and blues pop.
It looks sooooo cold - maybe I don't miss it. :)

I guess it is too cold to be out on that playground...or maybe all the kids are off sledding!

I like that royal blue against the white. I've been seeing more photos of snow lately, and I'm still waiting for snow here! Maybe February!

I like all of these photos and those blue ones at the kids' playground give such a contrast- lovely!

I love the addition of white. Makes everything look so different.

Love the bright blue against white. Very striking and dramatic.

Love your comment about not having to shovel rain. Out of the 4 times we've been in Vancouver and elsewhere in BC its rained for 3 of them lol

You don't really realise how much the colour shows up against the white snow until you see it in black and white - well you know what I mean!
