I think we can all remember days and holiday times in December when we’ve had unusual weather — a bit too warm or very snowy. But this December has taken all the top rankings, from no snow and unseasonable warmth early in the month, to a full-on “snowmageddon” for the Christmas weekend, and an early “January melt” for the new year.

As our top photos this month demonstrate, even when we are dealing with bizarre and changing weather, the Kawarthas are the prettiest place to be.

Do you want to get on our top photographers list? All you need is an Insta account and to tag us using our hashtag #kawarthanow when posting your photo.

We share photos from across our readership area, which is the five-county area surrounding Peterborough which includes Peterborough, Northumberland, City of Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton, and Hastings (we sneak in the occasional Algonquin Park picture as well, particularly if it’s by a Kawarthas photographer).

To see our daily shares of photos, follow us on Instagram @kawarthanow and check out our feed’s highlight reels for recaps of every month in 2022.
