Free Parking Port Credit, River Ice starts to form, Snow on Shawnmarr

Here's one of the parking meters in Port Credit, all nicely wrapped up for the holidays! The 'free Parking' in December is courtesy of the Port Credit (Ontario, Canada) Business Association, and a real help when shopping in the busy little village.

The lamp posts, too, are nicely done up in a simple, old-fashioned style, though they look their best at night with the twinkle lights on.

Along the Credit River near the landmark lighthouse (replica), these mallards steer clear of the ice sheets that are forming on the surface near the river bank next to the library.

A closer look at the encroaching ice, looking east towards Port Credit Memorial Park. Summertimes' canoers are gone for the season.

On Shawnmarr Road, in the townhouses, there's precious little snow still. And that's the way I'd like it to stay!

I took these photos the first week in December. A week later, the snow depth is about the same. See more pictures of Mississauga here. and of the Shawnmarr Road area at this blog post for December 2008, before and after the storm.
