The Snows of Widder Island

Widdershins Worlds

It snowed for five days …

The second night The second night

Our front yard looked like this …

30 centimeters of snow dug out three times 30 centimeters of snow dug out three times

… and this …

Poor Rosemary is somewhere underneath all that Poor Rosemary is somewhere underneath all that

Neighbours pitched in to clear driveways, and cars, and a way out to the main road …

A posse of six women did most of this A posse of six women did most of this

But, the day before yesterday came the freezing rain …

The sound of cracking branches reverberated across the island The sound of cracking branches reverberated across the island

Ice, everywhere …

Our driveway marker. The top meter or so anyway Our driveway marker. The top meter or so anyway

Then the inevitable happened. No electricity. Mrs Widds and I were prepared …

Kerosene heater – with supper in the pot on top – light and warmth Kerosene heater – with supper in the pot on top – light and warmth

I love Winter!
