Woke to find elevator crash drop in temperature from 17 celsius to minus 5 celsius and several inches of snow. All those early Spring returning birds will have a hard day. Temperature high tomorrow will be zero celsius. Wednesday to climb to 5 above. Photos from my kitchen door. 100 miles north of Toronto.
It has been an unusually fierce winter and it has dragged on into Spring. There has been extra snow from the seasonal usual and a large number of very cold days. Spring in Central Ontario is not much of a season, cold, rainy, grey days. Lots of mud. Summer bursts out like a sudden surprise. It is not a gradual improvement, instead it pops out and the hot weather descends. All the green plants turn on their colours like some giant turning a light switch.
