Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? 
In the lane, snow is glistening.
A beautiful sight, 
We're happy tonight. 
Walking in a winter wonderland. 

I couldn't get this song out of my head yesterday! When I woke up (well I know I'm gonna be, I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you), I took a peak out of my blinds and could not believe how much snow was inhabiting my backyard! I would later find out on my way to church, that all of Port Colborne had been blessed with nature's gift. 

On the drive out towards Gasline, the trees along Hwy. 3 were covered in snow and had a very picturesque look about them. As we drove along the curve and passed Snider Road, I felt like we had stepped inside of a winter painting. 

At this very moment, I wished that I could temporarily convert into a robot, so that my eyes, which I would have altered to act as a shutter, would physically be able to capture the scenery that I was perceiving. Then, when my robotic self got home, I could upload the picture to my computer and keep it for all eternity! Afterwards, I would turn back into a human. 

Since I was unable to do said robotic transformations, I shut my eyes long enough to take a mental photograph. 

I swear I heard the click of the shutter cocking as I closed my eyes. 

However, when I got home from church, which was sometime in the early afternoon, the temperature had warmed up slightly and the snow was beginning to melt. I grabbed my camera gear, put my long johns on (it's winter, therefore I rarely leave the house without them!), and went for an hour walk around Port Colborne. 

I had only just got to the Marina when I noticed that the battery level on my camera was almost out. 

Silly rabbit.

While most people were complaining about the change in weather (I mean who wasn't since it was on and off pouring rain, thundering, and the wind had picked up), I decided to take advantage of it and take some pictures of the foggy weather. Patiently waiting all day for the rain to let up, I eventually bit the bullet, threw on my rain boots and my jacket and ventured out into the......
