Lunenburg Winter 2015

15 02 2015

We didn’t have a white Christmas here at Lunenburg, but we’ve seen nothing but the white stuff since the New Year.

Backharbour2The Back Harbour is usually frozen over in the winter, but it seems even more so this year, with the covering of snow on top of the ice.

It’s difficult to see what is land and what is sea, although you can clearly see the ocean in the background.

The Polar Prince icebreaker, sits in the ice.

I have never seen the front harbour frozen like this, since we came here in 2007!

Hopefully the Blue Nose will sail this summer.

It doesn’t look as if the lobster boats are going to get to their traps any time soon.

And a different view of the Blue Nose.

Snow

The snow around the town is loaded onto lorries and cleared away, but there are still some big heaps.

Every roof and window is like this, I just thought this was pretty.

More snow heaped at the roadside at St. John’s Church.

Today is another snowy, stormy day, with several more snow days forecast for this week. I really love winter and snow, but it’s so cold that there’s not much we can do outside. It’s even too cold to go skiing!

Oh I am hating this Winter with a passion. Though I’d love it if I only experienced it through your photos.

Is the Blue Nose covered in a tarp or is that snow ?
