Good ones, Fred. Unlike Ken, I've never liked snow. However, PHOTOS (good ones) of snow are beautiful to behold.

Very nice pictures Fred. I never thought that you would still have snow by now.

Yes we do! We received about at least 10cm (4 inches) of snow yesterday and it was the wet and heavy kind.

I am about 250km (150 miles) north of where freds is .... and in the prairies (about 1000 feet high). I remember getting 3 inches of snow on May long week-end a couple of years ago...

What can you do?
