This time it will fall as snowPosted: February 13, 2017
The weatherman said “This time it will fall as snow” in reference to the fact that most of this winter every snowstorm headed towards Montreal has turned to freezing rain or rain when it hit the city. But this time the weatherman got it right and fall as snow it did, 30 centimetres of it in all. I spent some of my Monday morning sketching time shovelling out my car, as most of the city did, so only had a bit of time to sketch before my classes started. Most of the streets weren’t plowed either, so I couldn’t park anywhere except in a mall parking lot. I found a gorgeous big truck to draw but no sooner had I started pencilling in my shapes than the driver showed up with his mall-purchased lunch in a takeout bag. I had a minute or two to scribble in a few more lines before he drove off. The last minutes I had were spent drawing a few more snowy cars in the parking lot. More snow coming later this week!
