I visited Ottawa briefly as a kid, 7-9 years old. Don't remember the exact year.

Late 1950's...

 

We stayed at the Chateau Laurier. Rode the train. They had an indoor pool

in the basement, I got to take a swim. Pretty cool experience, as best I

remember it...

This is the old Ottawa train station with the Chateau Laurier in the background. Right now the main Parliament building is closed for a 10 year renovation, so the Canadian Senate is meeting in the old station hall.

A chilly but bright day in Almonte. Not a lot of snow yet this winter.

 

 

Nice to have some snow and ice around for a few weeks. I hardly ever get any here in Sth Wales, we had our first frost covering the fields this morning but it has already disapeared. Oh well at least it is a blue sky sunny day  😎

We have had some very cold temps the last couple days but today it will be back close to or slightly above freezing. Then down again.

This year we have had hardly any snow in comparison with other years.

This is what it looked like in December 2007.

I'll have to track down my pictures from the blizzard where we had 25"/63.5cm of snow in about 28 hours.

Meanwhile, a summer shot. Here is a picture of a praying mantis eating a spotted lantern fly on the side of our house. (Spotted lantern fly is an invasive species from China that was first spotted in our county. It has hit vineyards and orchards badly. It is also moving into other states.) https://planetprinceton.com/2020/08/21/the-spotted-lanternfly-10-tips-for-getting-rid-of-the-destructive-pest/

We have one tree that it like, a Maple. We wrap the tree in a special sticky tape and have the tree sprayed once a month if we see any insects near the top because it is too tall for us to reach.
