A View From My Neck of the Woods

Welcome to my little spot in the world. I live in small town Ontario. The population is about 6000 people. I didn't grow up in this town, but close by. My whole life I have been coming here, so it is home to me. My Dad hails from this town, his Dad owned a jewelery and china shop when I was a kid. I can remember it well.

Don't think it is a sleepy town though, there is always something that is 'stirring the pot'. In small town life even the smallest events can be blown into something major.

My little town has a river flowing through it. Right after Christmas there was a thaw, which resulted in a flood. While a flood usually happens in March or April, it is somewhat unusual for it to happen in December. Unfortunately it flooded the park which was home to our Christmas light display, and ended the display early, even damaging some of the lights.





















These photos are pretty typical for a winter day here. The sun can be scarce, but when it does shine in the winter, the sky is the most beautiful blue you will ever see.

I will be posting several photos from the 'view in my neck of the woods' as I think I live in a beautiful town, and would like to share it with you.

Wow a flood most every year! Yikes! It's amazing how powerfully destructive water can be. Thanks for my Saucy visit. Come by any time!

That is sad that the lights got ruined! Glad that the flooding has subsided, as the G.T. Snoracer wouldn't be a very good boat!

Wow this is a lot of water where there is not supposed to be a river!!! Being born and raised here in So. California, we don't really see changing of the seasons, just weather changes. I would love to see pictures of this same place when the trees are not naked but full. And blue skies. Okay, that is my "order" for January 2009!
Oh, and by the way, look how your blogroll is growing here. I am so glad you gave it another chance so we can know you:) Blessings to you today Pam.

Love and Hugs, Laurie
