What The….. Snow in Late March?

On the calendar it says spring, but up here in the Great White North, winter still has its grip on daily life, and this morning when I awoke to look outside, this is what I saw. Snow, and a bit of it that came down last night. I guess it got cold enough that the snow flakes stuck and stayed on everything. I was hoping that I would see any snow on the ground at this elevation until next fall season.

I keep forgetting that we here in Thornhill, BC only have two seasons: winter and (springish) summer. The springish part is the rainy season which take up about three-quarters of the summer portion of the year. Anyway, after so much of my life down in the Southern parts of Canada, seeing this at the end of March was a little bit of a shock. But then I have to remember, I am only a short drive from the Alaskan, U.S. Border–cold is a fact here.

Hovering at 4C, the day quickly changed over to being nice, with sunshine. Me and Suzette will probably go out hiking later today. We have plans to see the new Tomb Raider movie tonight, as it opens at the Cinema–should be a good night out. I am hoping that this is the last time we will see the snow this far down in the valley–again–this year!
