Dreaming Of Spring On A Ruby Tuesday Winter Day

this is what the city has been facing the last week or so and it kind of makes us long for spring to come along its way..
ronald macdonald seems to be enjoying the sudden onslaught of snow but i sure am not

brrr...!!!even a hot cup of macdonalds' coffee doesn't unchill the body!

no use of going to the colonel's for hot fried chicken either...
best place to be heading to is home and a hot tub!

now, this will be more like it..the welland bridge spanning the cool blue water of the welland canal.
the bridge will soon become the giant diving board from which the teenagers will be diving off into the water for a refreshing dip.
winter far from their minds!

oh the sheer luxury of the whole thing!

this red apartment building is shedding its reflection on the still waters.

the waters become even smoother as the spring sun gradually sinks.
can you see the sun rays shining on the top window, changing the pane into a dazzling jewel?

this white building used to be the home of our city paper but now houses lawyers offices.

across the canal is the senior citizens apartment building.

and i am sure that these dear folks are dreaming of sweet spring, just as i am, as they gaze at the shimmering water from their windows.

oh how i long for the spring!!
happy ruby tuesday to you terry

God's Grace.

Dear Terry,
How beautiful your Welland is, with the harmonious flow running through.
I'd never dare to dive from the bridge though.
Most likely I'd did my toes from that lovely green river bank.

Your town looks so neat and tidy.
Must be a good place to live. I guess by the amount of snow, that the climate is similar to ours.

Our pavements are so icy, I dare hardly walk there.
Now I'm longing for spring and flowers.
From Felisol

Hi Terry,
It was good to find your comments, I really enjoy finding your name in my moderation box.
It looks like spring will be a welcome time in your town! The summer shots you posted are really nice. I spent a summer long ago in Kingston, Montreal, and Vancouver-it was a lot of fun. That was when I was young and footloose!
Here's hoping the little red car gets some sunshine soon!

We are having it cool down here too, Terry. But no snow that stayed till morning.

I like your snow pictures, it is pretty if you don't have to be out in it.
Your reds are nice too, especially the reflections. My mother-in-law used to call those senior citizens apartment buildings 'chicken coups.' No way did she want to go live in one of those. I don't think I do either, if I can help it.

Happy RT! :)

Nice lazy spring days just ahead Miss Terry ... you'll be able to run through the grass barefoot ... with that Bernie fellow not far behind;) May this post keep the thought of spring and all its glory at the forefront of your mind ... until one day ... it's just as you've posted.
