Snow (again!)

It's snowing, again. Big wet sloppy clumps of snow have been falling since noon. This morning I walked to work in my shoes because there was no snow, and noticed that that there were already some perenials starting to appear in gardens here and there -- and then this afternoon I shloshed home in ankle deep slush while the heavy wet clumps falling from the sky nearly collapsed the umbrella that was keeping at least the top parts of me kinda dry.

I've been wanting to set up a blog for some time (since I read so many it seems only right I should contribute something as well!) The snow has melted twice already, but it keeps coming back. On April 1, the day that the bike paths in Montreal open up again, the roads were so bare and the weather so mild I wore relatively light bike gear and went for a long(ish) ride.

What I really wanted to write about for this first post is the reason for the rather cliche name I've given this blog, but that'll have to wait while I go make hot chocolate and watch the snow clumps cover the city.

I took this photo just one hour ago...
