Winter wonderland

snowy canal

Here's the view outside my window a few minutes ago. To the left the little drawbridge and in the middle of the canal one of the trees the neighbourhood comittee has put up along the whole length.

But I'm lucky, my boss called this afternoon to say she's got a foot of snow.

No sign of the ducks in this one, I believe. Thanks to the snow they haven't had to work as hard at keeping parts of the canal open today, it's all thawed out. But it was a really funny sight Saturday morning when one of the female ducks overshot the open water and made a tail landing on the ice, sliding several feet.
