I know it's only March, and I know it isn't unusual-but yesterday was such a nice day. I hung my laundry outside & it dried out there. I went on a Spring Bulb hunt-& right against the south wall of the house, enough snow was melted that there were little green shoots showing. I did the "Happy Dance" & thought Spring Thoughts.
Sigh! Today is a whole different story. It is snowing like stink out there-snowing & blowing & while it isn't actually THAT cold-it is cold enough that the slush I stomped through in my neon pink rain boots is now slippery ice to be carefully walked over in my winter boots with the safety 'grippies' on their soles so I don't fall & need stitches again. DD#2 was supposed to come with her kids for a visit-it is March Break week, but I had to tell her she shouldn't come-the drive home tonight would be risky. (our grandsons have hockey tomorrow-so she needed to be back for that).
So yesterday was a teaser-only that. It will come-just not yet. The entire southern part of Ontario is to have this snow-most places 5-10cm (2"-4")but the Kingston area is to get 15-25cm (6"-10"). Seems to me that the Winter what comes early (November)could have the good graces to leave early? But I guess not-the Polar Vortex is predicted to return by the weekend, with sun, but no warmth.
I think I will go sulk in my sewing room-maybe I will pull down the blind & refuse to look out.
How is the weather where you are? I want to buy seeds & peat pots to begin my gardening-but guess I need to be sensible & wait a couple weeks or everything will die before I can even SEE the garden under all that snow. <Big Sigh>
