First Snowfall

John headed off to work in a blur of snow on Saturday. It was the first snowfall of note that Toronto has experienced so far this winter. We got about 5 cm, I believe. I headed off to Kensington Market to shop.
As I walked into the market along Nassau street the little yards had been transformed by the white stuff.
Walking down Spadina Avenue afterwards the bright signage of Chinatown was made all the more colourful by the blanket of white
As a winter cyclist I had mixed-feelings about the beauty of these bicycles buried in snow.
Everything including hoardings looked fresh along Queen Street West.
Walking down Bathurst Street, I passed these Victorian houses which I have loved for decades. Winter has officially arrived!

    Regards, Tanja.
