3 C (37 F) and clear. Going down to -4C (25 F)overnight. I wonder if that means the maple syrup will start running again.

We actually got rain the other night. Still high fire danger because now we are back to dry and WINDY! It got into the low 60s today, but didn't feel that warm with the wind!

We had an incredibly gusty, windy day yesterday, with rain. But the wind was something else. Had a hard time convincing Rosebud to do her business outside, and house training has been the least of our problems with her. I can hardly blame her for not wanting to go out, to the point where I put on my outdoor gear so I could reassure her that I'm not going to leave her (I think she was a puppy put out on the side of the road by some idiot). But it was a truly miserable day.

It's windy here. Gotta be gusting over 50.
How windy is it?
It is so windy that it was lifting the coffee out of my mug this morning when I was outside.
It is so windy that it blew my sand filled bird bath over.
It is so windy that it tore a downspout loose from my house.
There was a cool rainbow right across from my house though.
It is so windy that I'm sure it would have blown any pot of gold away.

Claire, Simon, and Pacanis: I think it's the same weather system that is predicted to move to Quebec this afternoon. We have a rain warning - expecting winds and 30-40 mm (1.18-1.57 inches) of rain today. Further north and at higher elevations they are expecting snow and even heavy snow.

Right now: 2C, barely above freezing, and overcast.

I want Spring.

It's about noon here now & almost all the snow is gone already...I wish the same for you that the snow won't last long.
