Pre-Spring Surprises

The day before this photo was taken it was a balmy 13C and then a major snow storm changed everything back to winter. People bemoaning the loss of the spring-like weather apparently don't appreciate the non-driving winter experience. (Spring isn't officially until the vernal equinox, March 20, so really, it's not fair to complain, is it? Besides, as my dear mom says, we always get snow in April, so please, fellow Southern Ontario residents, steel yourselves for more.)

I enjoyed a short X-country ski with my partner as we skied from our front door, down the middle of the side street and into the historic Hamilton Cemetery, perched so prettily above Cootes Paradise on Burlington Heights.

I'll try and post some April snow pictures here in a few weeks. Wink wink.
