The lower marsh is in shadow while the treetops are lit up as the sun sets below clouds today. Sometimes glimpses of the sun are fleeting.

We went out to finish trimming branches along the road this afternoon. These bracket fungi might be birch polypore mushrooms (Piptoporus betulinus) even though they were growing on unhealthy poplar trees.

It started to snow and snow this afternoon and then the electricity went out. I went for a walk down the road to try to find an obstruction. The visibility was poor while it snowed, but I also didn’t see anything. A few hours after we called in the outage, Hydro came by and the electricity came back on.

I went out for a few hours this afternoon to keep trimming the branches of the evergreens along our property. The municipality did a nasty job of it last month, cutting branches off roughly, mid stalk. They also ripped some branches and left them hanging and I hope those trees survive. My new battery-powered Stihl MSA 140C is perfect for this job. It’s light and turns on and off quickly and easily so it’s perfect for trimming branches.
