Photo of the Day: First Snow on Island View Road


We’ve had bits of snow here and there for the past couple of weeks, but this weekend was really the first snow that stuck to the ground and sent me in search of my snowshoes in the basement (yes, I found them!).

I shot this photo on Friday, Nov. 9, 2018 at the top of Island View Road towards the west. I’m not sure who owns it, but it’s that little vineyard on the right side of the road at the top of the hill before you head down towards Peninsula Drive.

It sounds like we might get some warmer weather at some point this week, but this snow indicates that we’re definitely headed into winter on the Old Mission Peninsula.
