Look at the Schnee!!!
A great friend of mine, Paula, shared this on Facebook today, this pretty much sums up the winter in Muskoka!!!!
Finally, Finally the snow has stopped!!!!
The kids went back to school after 2 1/2 weeks of Christmas vacation! Lucky kids!!
The sky is clear tonight and it’s getting a little colder, the best part about the snow finally stopping is we might be able to see the Northern lights. I stole this little bit of info from MSN – The sun shot out a strong solar flare late Tuesday, which should arrive at Earth early Thursday, which means it will shake up Earth’s magnetic field and expand the Aurora Borealis south, possibly as far south as Colorado and central Illinois. He said the best viewing would probably be Thursday evening, weather permitting.
The solar storm is already causing airline flights to be diverted around the North Pole and South Pole and may disrupt GPS devices Thursday.
The northern lights are a result of charged particles from the sun interacting with the Earth’s magnetic field. As particles from the solar wind enter the Earth’s upper atmosphere, they collide with the individual atoms of our atmosphere to produce the spectacular light show.
Here are some photos from snow-covered Muskoka ON. ! 😀 😀
