A song of ice and more ice: The snowy season in 10 photos

It wasn’t unexpected but the volume was still staggering. With nose glued to Windows 10, we watched them pile up higher and higher. And just when we thought it couldn’t get any deeper or more beautiful, we got even more photos of snow.

Thanks to everyone who sent in their photos. Now that the rain has chased the last bits of snow and ice to the storm drain, we’re proud to present this collection of the 10 finest snow photos we received this season.

Susan Walter sent us this photo of cake-shaped snow piled up on her patio table.
Erin Adams sent us this wonderful shot of a neighbour’s tree bearing the snow from branch to bud.

As though in heaven there was revolt and riot,

And they, frail things had taken panic flight

Down to the calm earth seeking peace and quiet.
