#11. Snowshoeing Jan 28

Storm Update…we still have no power. This whole mess started Fri at 5 pm. Estimated time of restoration is 8:15 pm Feb 2.  With that said, my neighbour got his power back 8 pm this evening. The internet wireless tower is downstream of him so it has power, which allows us to finally get back online with the help of generator but can’t do anything else.

Below are some pictures from a walk on Saturday, along the old road on our property.

The old camera I have gave me some grief. The natural setting produced black images so I had to play with photoshop to pull the image out of the blackness.
