No More Snow!


img_4425 img_4429 img_4443 img_4445 img_4453 img_4454

Here are some pictures in case you didn’t get any snow where you live. It was tough shoveling our back deck. Had to do it in shifts because of the depth and drifts over the past few weeks.

We’ve had more than two feet of snow this winter. Hopefully clear days are ahead and spring is not far behind. The ice dams are starting to melt ensuring there will not be any leaks inside as temps are beginning to climb.

The one thing I like about the snow is that all the animal tracks are more evident. By the multitude of tracks in these photos you can see there have been many deer, rabbits, and all kinds of birds including turkeys all over our yard.

Hope you are having great weather where you live. I’m praying for spring!

Sorry I haven’t been blogging lately. I am working on three books, a children’s book, a short story collection, and Book 5 of the Davey & Derek Junior Detectives Series. I hope to publish all three this year. More books coming after these.

Stay tuned for more information on publication dates of these and other books from Jemsbooks. Go back to for all my books.

Thank you for stopping by.

Reading Gives You Wings to Fly!

Blessings & hugs!

    Thanks anyway, but I have quite enough snow. I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. Enough said.

  2. Send some of that snow our way please, Janice. We’ve had hardly any in the UK, although it has been a lot colder than usual. We hit 65F yesterday. Back to low 40s by Friday.

    Good luck with the upcoming books. Sounds like you’re a very busy lady.

    That is a LOT of snow! We’ve had a few squalls but lately the weather has been beautiful. We’re going to hit the 70s this week—so bizarre for February, but I’m a spring/summer gal, so I’m loving it.
    The white stuff is certainly pretty though. It’s just the shoveling that does me in!

    We got lots of snow, but not as much as you did. It must be a big challenge to shovel all of that heavy white stuff!. Hope spring comes soon.

  5. macjam47 says:

    Share some of that snow with the rest of us.

  6. Looks amazing Janice.. hard work but a winter wonderland.. xxx

  7. Lovely photos, writing indoors sounds like a good pursuit when the weather is like that 😊. Do you write first long hand or type your ideas up straight away?

  8. We had our first snow last night. It is already gone. Many thanks for the follow. Returning to blogging later this week.😊
