Since last year we had snow on the ground until the beginning of May, it was really surprising to actually have a spring on the official first day of spring (March 21) this year. Where I live in Saskatchewan we never have spring when it’s officially ‘spring’. That usually doesn’t happen until after Easter, sometimes later. But this year, seemingly to balance out the snow-based misery in lots of parts of the country, particularly the Maritimes, northern Saskatchewan has a spring! I even took some pictures today:
Yep, the snow has largely melted away and I couldn’t be happier. There’s still quite a bit of snow in my backyard where it’s sheltered by the shadow of the house, but overall the snow is on the outs. Now the thing causing everyone grief is the muck because only one road in town is paved and of course the frost melting makes gravel roads warp in very interesting ways. On the plus side, Tyrion is thoroughly enjoying being able to go outside for walks with me:
So what does spring look like for you guys? Are you still stuck under several feet of snow or are you getting a proper string?
