Snow Storm

Last week we experienced a spring like winter that ended with a major snow storm right across York Region. On Friday (January 12th), I found myself downtown Aurora driving in with freezing rain pellets pounding my car and driving out with fluffy heavy wet dancing snow plastering my car from all directions.

Traffic on Yonge Street was slowing down. Roads were slippery. Cleaning the car was endless. A fire truck zoomed by screaming with a siren message “get out of my way.” Gabriel’s Cafe closed for good and awaiting new beginnings. Looking back at Yonge Street from Mosley Street, no Aurora United Church there, but that too will change soon.

It was also my last visit to the Aurora Old Library demolition site; but it was snowing so hard that I only spent there a few minutes. The Priestly Demolition crew was still on site. My fingers were freezing and camera was getting wet, but I did get my last shot of that “brownwall of the library.

Today the view of the demolition site of the Old Library was very much different, it seemed brighter. Brighter not just because it was a sunny day, but because it’s now an open space that will be waiting for a new beginning as well.
