This weekend Nova Scotia was bombed with its first storm of the decade. Snow, rain, wind, high waves and power outages were all part of the mix.
A covering of snow gave the woods a cozy look. Somehow, looking at bare branches in January makes the cold seem even colder. Unfortunately, temperatures are rising, so this snow might not be around for long.
These tracks were already dusted with snow when I saw them in the morning in a spot where I often see snowshoe hares.
The tide surge made the waters passing under Bald Eage Bridge in the salt marsh seem higher and more forceful than usual.
Waves up to 8 metres in height were anticipated off the coast. Radio announcers from Seaside FM were expecting surfers to be catching the waves around Cow Bay, just down from the moose.
In the marsh and in the woods all was quiet. At least wildlife has the sense to lay low during storms, find a nice cozy spot to hunker down in and conserve energy until the worst is past.
