..as in we're not gonna take it anymore That's it we're done. April is over - spring is here - I have decreed it.

Monday morning we woke up to this .....



Seeing how we JUST put the deck furniture out on Sunday I was gonna enjoy it damnit , even it only for a photo op



Then Tuesday rolls around and there's hope an early afternoon view today .......



Blue skies and sun flares ! Suppose to be 21C Saturday.



Not as pretty or 'artistic' as all of Tess's icicle shots but we have melting icicles everyhwere here today, roof, cars, fence , it's all good

man I thought all of that snow stuff was over from the last thread I saw, this is just plain ridiculous Dave. Some of those ice cycles are big enough to kill someone. May is tomorrow, a new Spring beginning for you, let us hope anyways.

We're about to enter a blocking pattern here in the northeast US. Looks like 6 straight days of sun and 70s

I'm sorry it's has hit you too. In Winterpeg it's snowing right now. Are we ever going to see spring? I am beginning to have my doubts. I hope it arrives for us all soon.

You have my sympathy. We get that here in central new York too. We've had snow on Mother's Day. The college I work at also (often) has graduation outside in mid-May and we've sat there with snow coming down before. You just have to laugh (so you don't cry). :-)

I would feel sorry for you but I am laughing too hard. The invite down to SC still stands but now you will have to bring your own solo cups.

Well it looks like Tawana (that's Toronto for non-natives) has seen the last of the snow for the season. We did have some white stuff not to long ago, but we're into the nicer weather (except when it is grey and raining and British like as it has been the past couple of days). Not that I'm complaining as in a couple of weeks I'm sure some folks will be saying it is too hot and firing up their air conditions.

When it snows just do what my cousin's husband does - fire up the bbq.
