Because in Edmonton, “the first day of spring” is nothing more than a date on a calendar.
There have been 10 inches of snow in the past week, with more in the forecast. Oh well, at least it’s sunny right now.
Before this week’ s snow, we’d been enjoying a bit of a mild streak, and I’d heard many speculating that this was an early spring. I suspect those folks haven’t lived in E-Ville for long, have a short memory, or have a rosy view of climate change.
Pretty par for the course in March, I’d say.
