Sod's Law.

Beautiful sunny day with a breeze. Great drying weather. Washed a load of woollens, hung on the line in the garden to dry. Pottered off to make bread and tidy the sitting room. Sat down to post when I suddenly became aware of heavy rain. Rushed out to bring in washing. 15 minutes later it's a gloriously sunny afternoon again. Grr!

It is about 45 F. Right now. Quite beautiful with sun shining.

Sunny and +2C (36F), but with a real bite in the breeze.

I just checked the The Weather Network to see the temperature and was greeted with a page with a bright red border that says,
"Snowfall Warning
A total of 15 to 20 centimetres of snow is expected on Saturday." Aargh, flail. Go away winter.

It means Canadians have two ways they get around, dog sleds and canoes

-3C (27F) and snowing. We have gotten the first ~12-13 cm (~5") of the predicted 15 cm.

It's supposedly Spring. Enough already.

Took this out the back door.



I'm just glad it didn't do that yesterday when I took Stirling to the clinic. Walking over ice that he could see was scary enough.

That is beautiful TL. Pure driven snow. Not black with car soot or yellow. Of course ours has all melted and it is 50F. today. If I could bend over backwards, I would be kicking myself right out the door. What the heck am I doing in on a day like this? I should be out enjoying it. Oh now I remember why I am still in. The winds are rather high. Too high to take the scooter out. The street sand is blowing all over the place.

Thank you DH gets all the credit. He planted them several years ago when I was sick and I get such joy from watching them bloom.
