Well its that time of year, my wife and I would like to wish everyone and their families a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. (Skywatch Friday)

Here is a photo I took this morning on our way out of the city. Here in central Canada we get 'Sun Dogs' whenever it gets really cold and today I believe it's around -30degrees celsius. It will definitely be a white Christmas in these parts.

I saw three ships come sailing in ...
(Those are ships, Guy, shining ships sailing on the sastrugi.)

Peach said...

Very Western, Guy, those snow ships. Downtown Child expresses sastrugi, that phenomena of snow and wind, and I agree.

Wow! That is such an amazing sight. I would love to see something like that in person. I'm sure I'd blink several time not believing what I was seeing. :-) I'm so glad I got a chance to swing buy to say Merry Christmas. Thanks for keeping up with Watery Wednesday.
