So sorry Wares and GH about your crappy Albertan weather. Just this past Sunday I felt winter's grip loosen and allow the spring to slip into it's place. Even the rain today wasn't as upsetting because it sure beats the white stuff. I was getting so fed up wearing my down coat to go riding. Just wore it again last week! Yuck! Today was rainy but was 20C. WooHoo! I'll try and send some spring your way!

We finally hit mid/ high 70's and it was all tank tops and shorts. Motorcycles by the ton.
Last week it snowed. Don't like the weather here, we just wait 5min. It'll change.
Our hay fields look good now, but they looked good this time last year too. Then it just quit raining. Hoping this year is better for everyone! I can't count how many irrigation systems I've seen being installed this spring. Honestly hundreds of new sprinklers on my drive to work.

Ok, pics tomorrow, today I was so busy outside enjoying the sun and then of course, I have to go to work. No riding today, I had my granddaughter, we did gardening, she likes digging in dirt. Tomorrow is riding!

Our day wasn't quite as nice as yours, wares, but in the afternoon I did feel something wet start to drip on my face. Took me a minute to realize that it was rain (it's been so darn long!), and rain is better than snow in my books, because it means it's GETTING WARMER!!! YAY!

This is true CW, just months & months of gray, drizzly days (I was there for a week last month, never seen the sun come out once!), but I heard the lower mainland was gorgeous today too!

There we go: rain has officially changed over to sleet. Yay.
