Canadian Firefighters Memorial, December 28, 2015

We finally got snow and it stayed. The weather report called for more snow, so I made time today, Monday, December 28, 2015, to go and photograph the Canadian Firefighters Memorial for the last time in 2015. I took the pictures in minus temperature weather (about -6°C) and likely took fewer than I would have if it had been warmer.

Canadian Firefighters Memorial, December 13, 2015

The memorial site looks about the same as it has the previous two times I've been out to photograph it. Even the sky has similar cloud cover. Maintenance people have made some changes. The snow fence has burlap sheet on it. Most of the plants have been pruned back.

On the other side of Lett Street construction progresses on a park. I took two photographs of that with the memorial in the foreground. All the earth work is black so it may not be easy to make out what's going on there. I expect when it's finished it will complement the memorial site.

I took this to show the grasses on the hill pruned back for winter.

Canadian Firefighters Memorial, November 29, 2015

The temperature hit freezing, 0°C/32°F on this day. The memorial site appeared very much as it did the last time I visited it. Maintenance workers have installed a snow fence.
