First we have the sun rising noticeably earlier each day, not to mention eating supper in full daylight!
Then we have the usual snow at 10 AM, sun and melting at 2 PM, snow again at 5 PM and perhaps a tad bit of rain in between....the same day, of course.
The wind is picking up...considerably!
Folks are walking outside without mitts or toques.
Vehicles look like they've just come from back-roading:)
People seem to smile a bit more than a month ago when it was minus 38 C.
Pot holes have swallowed up half the population...I'm one of the few left to tell the tale!
And on and on it goes...until we see a crow...then we know, for certain, spring has arrived...not to mention the crocuses soon to flaunt their silvery blue shawls on those first warm days out on the prairie.
Yes, I'm gearing up for a weather change...oh shoot, just read the weather forecast.
Fifteen cm. of snow are heading this way on Sunday. But, hey, that's March, right?
So, dress in layers for those sudden balmy afternoons of plus 3 or so. And keep in the middle of the streets, if you're driving. Sure, it may cause a head-on collision but at least you won't disappear into the endless depths of pothole hell.
Enjoy your winter/spring/whatnot kind of day out there.
I love these short months and long icicles!
