Sunrise in Niagara Falls

This is what we woke up to on Wednesday morning. This lasted for about 20 minutes and then the snow rolled in. Typical Canadian winter. In case you are wondering, the roar of the falls could be heard on the 36th floor.

Niagara Falls

This was our view from the Embassy Suites on the 36th floor. This is the Canadian Falls called the Horse Shoe. We live about an hour from Niagara Falls and have been going there with our children for the past 4 years for a mini holiday.

And then the water came...

This was the scene yesterday on the Grand River, one week after this photo. A very big difference as with 2 day of rain, 10*C temps that melted 50cm of snow.

This photo was taken at 8:30am on Thursday morning. The sign at the left is a trail sign, look where the sign is in the next photo.

This was two hours later at 10:30am. Notice the trail sign to the left of the photo, and the blue sign is an information sign.

Path in the River

This is the only spot that was open on the river a few days ago. With temperatures above freezing for the next few days I'm sure this is going to change.

Here we have a couple of bridges out of West Brant. The closest one is a foot bridge that use to be a rail line, the one behind that is the Lorne Bridge and that's the second bridge out of West Brant by car. This one is the other one. Past that is the Brantford Armories (more on that tomorrow). I was standing on the other foot bridge that crosses the Grand River and it also use to be a rail line.

Cold Morning

It was cold again this morning -24*C, and when it's that cold I always get wonderful photos. This photo was taken in the same spot as this one. I really do like this photo as to the left of the photo there is a small rainbow trying to form.

Ice Cream?

This is the best ice cream shop in Brantford. It's only open during the summer months and thank goodness as I think these snow banks are pretty high...hehe!

Poor Little Tree

This little tree is stuck in a snow bank, and with the snow that we are having, it looks like it's going to be stuck in there for a long while.

Good Morning Sunshine

I know I have taken lots of photos with the sun and the snow, but that's all that's around right now! I do have to admit, I can never get sick of these kind of photos....
