I'm not sure if these go into my all time sunset collection or not. However, I couldn't help but notice there was a pretty nice sunset developing today. That, combined with the fog lingering over the sea ice, made for some nice visuals. Alas, I couldn't get the right angles just from my living room, which meant going across the street and standing between a couple of houses to get the right shot.

It's not a big deal, I just got spoiled with the other place over all the astonishing sunset shots I could get from my window. On the other hand, at least I don't have as many bloody telephone wires in the way with these pictures.

And while I was getting pictures, I couldn't help but notice one of my neighbours had something interesting hanging out to dry off the side of his house.

Yeah, that's a polar bear hide. I'm tempted to go over and knock and ask how much he wants for it.

And just because, here's a picture again of the homestead. As you can tell, we have quite a bit of driveway to keep clean. The left side is for the water truck, the middle for our truck and the right side for the sewage truck. I know it doesn't seem like an epic level of snow, but it is a lot for us. Plus, we're deeply out of practice when it comes to shovelling.

I'm thankfully out of practice, too. The last year I lived in St. John's was the year we broke the snowfall record.

Great photography!

Beautiful sunset! Takes some determination to walk outside, but so worth it.

Desolate looking! But I bet we had more snow here in pennsylvania than you did this winter!! How much did you have?

You probably have. Nunavut is an arctic desert so we really shouldn't be getting high amounts of snowfall. The fact we are this winter is very, very strange as are the mild temperatures.

No idea how much snow we've gotten so far this winter. Interesting question, though. I should ask one of my reporter friends to go and find that out.
