I was really hoping to post the before and after photos of my bathroom renovation. Sadly, they are still not done. There has been delay after delay after delay and there's still a few things that need to be done, like some touch-up painting. I'm still hoping one day soon, it'll be done. I'm not holding my breath, though. :(
Anyway, instead I thought I'd take a photo of our wintery yard because if the weather forecasters are correct, it's all about to change. This morning was -7C/19F ("feels like"/windchill temp -13/9F). That's pretty typical for a early March morning. Nice, but definitely more winter than spring. According to The Weather Network, spring is on its way. No, really!
The forecasted weather for this week:
(It's already 5C)
That may seem cold to some of you in the southern US or other parts around the world, but to us it's going to be a glorious week. Very quick melts like this are usually a bad sign. If the ground is still frozen (and it will be) and the water has no where to go (and it won't), there's a risk of overland flooding. Blah, blah, blah. I'm not going to think of that now. I'm going to rejoice that warmer weather is on the way!
So here are the photos of the back yard and front yard as of 1pm today:
Hopefully, next week I'll post ones that look very different...with all or most of the snow gone...at least temporarily. We sometimes get snow in April and/or May. Blah, blah, blah. Again, I'm not going to think about that right now. I'm going to be too busy putting away my parka and snow boots and breaking out my flip flops and sun screen.
Stand back, Winter. Spring is on the way!
