We seem to have had quite a lot of snow this winter.

For an Aussie, this much snow is delightful and exotic. Even the suggestion of shovelling snow sounded like a fun novelty.

And after a while it starts to pile up - this is the view looking towards the NSCAD buildings on Granville St Mall.
And the snow banks on the side of the roads are also starting to get high. These ones are about my chest height, which Im guessing is about 150cm. Apparently this is usual further north in places like Newfoundland, but not here in Halifax!

It is quite the experience for someone who had previously only experienced extreme cold when travelling through a Russian winter.
