C’mon Spring!

The weather here had been pretty cruddy.  Rain, rain , rain which generally means – MUD.  There are no paved roads in this camp, everything is dirt and gravel so I am not a big fan of the rain.  However, the other day the rain turned into snow and it continued to snow all night.  Ugh.  I thought we were on our way to an Afghan spring.  Anyhow, luckily, the sun did decide to come out and the snow started to melt – quickly.  Sooooo, lakes of water everywhere.  I took this picture just to give an idea of the amount of standing water we are dealing with.  I was also quite happy to see the mountains.  We don’t often see them here because of the smog but every now and again we get an awesome view.  One day I will try and get a picture of the same spot, with smog, what a difference!

I hear Ontario is getting more snow, I will keep my fingers crossed that some warmer weather comes your way 😉




I have been in Valcartier for almost a month and took a couple of pictures, I really should get out with the camera more.

This is the 5 Brigade statue at the entrance to the base.  It has the crests from all the units on it.

This statue is also by the entrance to the base.  I didn’t actually read the plaque.  Maybe next time.

My room.

And that is all I’ve got for today.  For some reason I thought I had taken more pictures but when I downloaded them there were only these ones.  No big deal, I’ll take some more next time I am out for a walk.

In other news… keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to leave tomorrow for Petawawa.  Rumour has it we will be given the day off on Friday and if that’s the case I am hoping to start driving ASAP.  Ryan is looking forward to me coming home although I’m not sure if he is more excited to see more, or that we are picking up the dog…..
