183/365 – Through the back door

Moving is exhausting and overwhelming. I have been so busy and preoccupied by it all in the last 8 days that Thursday went by unnoticed and I forgot to post my “Thursday Doors” photo. Thankfully Norm 2.0 gives participant until Saturday to do so.


So here is my Thursday Door on a Friday. Seen in an NDG alley.

74/365 – All dunes are not made of sand

Environment  Canada has reported that the month of February 2015 has been the coldest month ever recorded in 115 years on the Quebec east and southwest regions. Between February 1st and 25th,  temperatures of 5 to 9 degrees below average have enveloped the region.

Outside of the city, the scenery is breathtaking. Color aside, the snow drifts strangely resemble desert dunes.
