The first respectable snowfall of the season is supposed to melt later today, but here's a selection of photos I took yesterday to celebrate my neighbourhood in winter.

With the winter of 2011-2012 threatening to be a no-show, I took full advantage of the only legitimate snowfall we've had this season and got out to enjoy the sights in my neighbourhood - Strathcona.
One of the great things about living in this downtown neighbourhood is the easy access to greenspace and natural vistas.
While not a major storm, enough snow fell to allow mother nature to put on a show for us here in the Hammer. Enjoy this snowy morning walk through Strathcona.
Snow begins to fall in the evening on Sunday.
The next morning.
Mature trees in Victoria Park.
Footprints crisscross the snow.
The new Victoria Park gazebo.
Tobogganing - finally!
Snow and water.
