I'll keep my fingers crossed that the river behaves itself.

It's been springlike and the snow was melting. Roads and sidewalks all nice and clear. We have a snow warning. We're expecting 10 - 15 cm (4-6 inches). The temperature right now is 0 C.

I'm ready for spring.

Snowing here on the Island of Montreal too. At least the days are longer than the nights now.

That's not much comfort if you can't see the sun because of the snow!

I learned the name of the current season.

With all the freeze/snow, rain/thaw, freeze again, thaw again that we have been having, the current season is "pothole slalom season".

One of the main arterys over the river has been closed for repairs...the potholes were horrendous. They each had their own zip (mail) code.

50F & sunny. Everyone is raking lawns & cleaning out yards this weekend. Rain expected. Before you know it, it will be time to start mowing the lawn again.
