Wilberview Winter Scenes

Short video clips of our former home in North Algona Wilberforce Township Overlooking Wilber Lake, near Eganville Ontario.

From our upper deck we could see the Lake and the twin steeples on the two Lutheran churches in Augsburg, Ontario. It didn’t take long for time and trees to obscure our view. But the name ‘Wilberview’ remained as long as we lived in our little house on the side of the hill.

FEBRUARY BLIZZARD

February Blizzards are also spectacular. The clean-up afterwards was not!

SNOW WARRIOR

The snow warrior was the lucky one who got to play with the snowblower after each blizzard. We had six blizzards the last year we lived there. Guess who was happy when we moved?

PLOW IT AGAIN SAM

Sam did plow it again. And again, and again and again. For seventeen winters in a row while we were in residence there!

PISTE BASHER

This guy had the fun job after a snowfall. As did the ‘lads’ and their power machines which were called ‘Skidoo’s’ in my day!

SNOW MOBILES

Catch us if you can! Vrooooooom!

BURNING BRUSH 1

Our property consisted of 5 1/2 acres of fields, rocks and trees. Who knew trees could ever shed so many branches. Every year! It was fun burning the burns piles for the first year or so. The last burn was taken in the spring of 2017. By that time I needed a helper. Thanks Ron for all the work you did for us in the years before we headed for the prairies!

BURNING BRUSH 2

I always started a small fire in a cardboard box stuffed with twisted paper pushed through holes in the box that reached in to the center of the pile. My bonfires were always a one-matchstick fire. (My only claim to fame. (Sigh!)
