Wake up in the morning to a severe case of red-eye.

Trying to fight traffic on these congested highways.

Can't seem to get anywhere, as every road runs into a detour. (a.k.a. water body)

Just a couple more of the terrible obstructions encountered on our daily grind.

The storms are pretty nasty also.

Yeah, that rush hour traffic is a bear. Oh, wait, no bears in this set... still a lovely set anyway :)

Not sure I could handle that every morning, guess I'll just stick with Atlanta traffic. Seems much more tolerable.

Great set though, Not sure I would make it to work on time.

Awesome set, HBGirl! Really beautiful! Fall always has the best sunrises and sunsets too!

You need to do something about those horrible autumn hues in your forests :headslap:

A great big thank you to all for the compliments.
Seems that a lot of trees have lost their leaves up here already, while many of you have commented that your colour is just starting. May be a long cold winter. Oh well, time to fire up the sled, and put away the side-x-side.
Yes, life is tough here with all the noise, pollution, rowdy neighbours, traffic, etc. etc.,;), but as I have said, it is not for everybody I am sure. It is a 2 hr. drive to get to a city of any real size. There is a hospital close by, but anything serious, and the at-the-ready air ambulance will be taking you to a REAL hospital. Plus gas is quite often rated as highest price in Ontario.:wall-an: Oh yeah, did I mention the -45 degree nights/days, without windchill.

You had me until that bit about -45 temperatures. Kind of really attached to the random 70 degree days we get here in the middle of winter!

Oh but look at all the fun you're missing. Snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, ice-fishing, and don't forget all the nice winter-land shots, including the uncountable amount of waterfalls in the area that will be half frozen come winter, with beautiful hues of aqua blue ice.
The Northern Lights really put on a beautiful show the other night also. Best one so far with nice shades of green in full pulsating sheets across the clear night sky. Was amazing.

Northern lights is about all in that list that I want to experience. The rest I can't say so much. I got upset last winter because I actually had to shovel snow for the first time in my life.
