At least not for now, because we have had a major rise in temperature accompanied by sun!
The change from -21C (-6F) on Friday to today’s +8 (46F) has been huge, resulting in lots of water running everywhere and pond-sized puddles in yards, parking lots and soccer fields. I got a shower trying to get into the house!
You can see how much snow from the house eaves has already melted since a week ago.

Put snow in the freezer while you can
And in July, you can build a snowman.
Of course, it won’t last long in the heat,
But you’ll have the only one on your street.
Hahaha. 🙂 However, I will be in the Okanagan Valley in the summer (where temps easily reach 40C [104F]), so I don’t think I’m going to do the necessary packing to ensure a frozen product after a 2000 km trip south. 😉
Yay for melting progress. Our snow is mostly gone here and the all night rain predicted for last night never showed up, but the high winds did. Happy Tuesday Lynette. Allan
For sure! It is melting so quickly here and that’s a very good thing. Two or three more days of this and all the snow we accumulated will be totally gone.
I’m glad you qualified that with “At least not for now.” We had a fresh dump of snow up in the hills last night. Not in the valley, thankfully, but still, there’s cool air hovering, looking for a place to drop snow, so keep your head down.
For sure. I’m under no illusions that we’re finished with snow. There will be a number of dumpish days (and maybe weeks, too).
I can see why you think 46 is reason to celebrate. Me–that’s still cold!
It’s all relative, isn’t it? In July I will be back in the Okanagan Valley where 40C (104F) will be one of the cooler days!
Glad to hear that you are finally enjoying warmer temperatures. Having blue skies and sun always makes a huge difference.
Thank you very much. 🙂 Spring is such a nice season and it’s great to finally see the start of it!
