We had a heavy snowfall here three days ago. Because the snow was wet and heavy and because we have had little wind, it has settled on trees, wires, poles in a very beautiful way. The way the city looks reminded me of some paintings of Lawren Harris, a Group of Seven artist. I love the way the coniferous trees carry the burden of this strangely persistent snow. Driving around town today I saw some spectacular overhangs from the roofs of buildings too. I drove over the mountain and was rewarded with some spectacular sights of branches and twigs weighed down with snow. I will try to get some images of that tomorrow. Of course, beauty that spectacular exacts a toll.
