Spring's Here...Right?



March 21st welcomes Spring into the Northern hemisphere and is known as the Spring Equinox. Or so I was told...

And true to timing, the end of March was the beginning of what promised to be great weather. It was lightly raining almost daily, the snow had melted, there was sight of grass everywhere, and golly, the robbins were out!


So, it was really Spring, right?


Apparently not.


Because I woke up yesterday, bright and early at 6.30am (for hospital work), and as I made my way to the washroom, I said quietly to myself: "Boy, it looks so much like snow"...

And I remember laughing and thinking "Crazy girl, you, it's Spring!". And I sure did a big double-take, when I realised, drat, it really WAS snow!


We had flurries, and snow-mixed with rain, but heck, the snow stayed on the ground, and today, we had about 5-10cm of snow...


Below are scenes from my bedroom window, taken early today...





What happened to the grass?!?!?




Heck, there are even icicles on my roof!




The trees were also snow-ish!




And so are the roofs of the building, and the far off distance!




Haih...


The weather in Canada is just so unpredictable...But oh well, light snow is nice to play with. The temperature isn't that cold (about -2degrees), and it is quite pretty...

Just looks like it will be a while before we can reallllly wear shorts and slippers and skirts...



Anyway, I'm really busy right now with exams, so will be AWOL-ing from the blog world for a while...

Till the next post, take care everyone!
