"...a little snow, tumbled about"*

Wind-blown iciclesI think the icicles in this photo and the angle at which they've been formed sum up today's weather perfectly.

Snow dunesQuite large snow dunes are forming along the fences between our farm and the neighbouring one. Of course we did expect that there would be reasonable quantities of snow and ice here ("YOU'VE MOVED TO CANADA!", as a friend kindly reminded me this week), but we are assured by people we meet (and by the media) that this winter is unusually snowy, even for Ontario.
