First Snow Today in Montreal!
The video I am sharing for this post....Ben Bernie and his Orchestra "Swinging Down the Lane" (1923). :) I enjoyed the song and the images in the video brought back good memories of my childhood. Very nice video and song!
We had our first snowfall today. I found it really nice. The weather was mild, as it usually is here when it snows, and the air smelled fresh and clean. When I left home to go for my walk...it was not snowing at that point, so I had my running shoes on. However, throughout my walk it had started snowing and the snow actually stayed a bit in some areas; however, we did not get a lot of snow so there was pretty much no accumulation.
The photos I am sharing...one of them is actually part of the floor of a mall. I found the design on it so pretty I took a photo of it. Another photo is a sign on a sidewalk that says: "Je traverse quand c'est le temps!" In English: "I cross when it's the time!" It refers to the fact that many pedestrians do not cross at the pedestrian crosswalks...or at green lights. Police here have been campaigning to make the roads safer for everyone, so they have been handing out tickets to speeding drivers as well as pedestrians who don't respect crossing at the proper places and times.
The other two photos are self explanatory. They are of a Christmas tree in a mall I liked; however, I thus far cannot figure out how to flip the photos so that you can see it upright. Sorry about that. Here are my Photos
