Québec has an undeniable european air... Thanks for showing it Marylin. Greetings from Spain.
Wonderful, Marylin! And how to come into the house? Best wishes. Eva
If there was so much snow in front of my door, I would not even think to go out! Funny shot!
Thank you for stopping by (though not coming in this door!), Pepe, Eva, and Ed. This was one of the doors to the courtyard of our hotel in Quebec, and I thought the snow had drifted in a rather artistic way! I also hoped to amuse those who don't have the "privilege" of seeing this much snow. Cheers, Marilyn
Davvero simpatica! ciao from Italy
Thank you, Andrea and Don. I'm glad you saw what I saw.
Just call me a copy-cat, Paul!
Actually I've just realized what some of my photos and yours are doing. We're showing some of the more practical aspects of living with snow, and I think that's quite fun as well as interesting. Yes, we can show the beauty, too, but there are many shots that do that, quite spectacularly--in Norway and Switzerland, for instance. That's different from concentrating on the work of the plow or drifted doorways. Those aren't picture-book fantasies. They're real life!
Greetings from southern Ontario, where a long period of snowfall has finally given way to hesitant sunshine.
I think Quebec city gets the most snow of any big city in Canada. A very artistic drift indeed -- but I bet they did not declare a "snow day" for this little inconvenience!
I love the geometry of this picture, and the muted color of the bricks. The way the irregular corners of the wall and the door intersect the snow, it's like a giant knife has been dropped into a smooth snowbank and cut it just here.
really a wonderful metapher..... :)

Great shot, Marilyn! It's incredible how much snow you have!! Can't you send us just a little bit? :)
Thank you, Nawitka, Ryan, Monika, and Anne.
Nawitka, I was on a tour of Quebec City during the first hours of the storm, as snow fell on the already significant accumulation. Some women from Virginia were amazed at how things kept going! (But that night the decision-makers did postpone the opening ceremonies of Carnaval.)
Anne, I'm sure lots of us would be willing to share, if only we could! They said at the beginning of the season that we were going to have a real winter, and this time the predictions seem accurate! I'm afraid that, by posting these pictures, I'm perpetuating the stereotype of Canada as the Frozen North. That's definitely not the whole story, but it is the story at the moment.
