Mondays in March*

At the Home Depot yesterday. This is a "snow mountain" made from clearing the parking lot over the winter.

Eliot may have pronounced April the cruelest month, but I doubt he was familiar with March on the Northern Canadian Prairie. Technically, we tend to get more snow in this month than we get the entire winter--something which would be hard to do this month, though with the snow fall yesterday and today, we're off to a great start!

By months end, we'll be sloshing through puddles. It's the month of great transformation. I thought it would be interesting to do a post each week showing you my back yard and giving you the weather.

Unfortunately, today, there's really not that much to see. I snapped this yesterday from the back gate during a rare moment when the sun was shining.

The weather (from Environment Canada, temperatures in Celcius):

Periods of snow ending late this afternoon then cloudy with 40 percent chance of flurries. Amount 2 to 4 cm. Wind north 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light this afternoon. Temperature steady near minus 24. Wind chill minus 36.

Cloudy with 40 percent chance of flurries. Low minus 31.

(Please hurry up, Spring!)

*OK, so technically, it is still February. But it's close enough, don't you think?
