Here are some pictures I took a year ago, in late January 2009. I was walking along the main road when I took this picture. The spruce topple over pretty easily when they are weighed down with heavy snow. I think the McNutt's Island road crew will have plenty to do when we get home.
This is one of the old signs along the main road to the lighthouse.
The island is all shades of grey and white this time of year, and the sharply defined darkness of bare branches, like pen and ink. Only the house stands out, a reminder of blue sky and sunlight.
