Quite the roller coaster weather this weekend. 20 on Sat +8 on Sunday. We missed the snow the south got, but still was blustery.

Sat morning was +9 at the start of my ride. +17 when I finished my first 100 km ride of the year. Bit over dressed though.

Sunday was able to get the yard all done and ready for summer. Just need to ground to warm so we can get ready for Planting annuals.

Sunny all week here but much cooler. Now if only we get some much need rain. I can finish painting the bathroom then.

I’m sorry, but that is pretty depressing when a mix of sun and cloud with a high of 10 in the second half of April is something to celebrate...

I don’t think I could last in Newfoundland, especially between March to June.

Most people couldn't. Even we are struggling this spring.

But... like that old folk story, "No man could live long enough to count the hours of sun stolen away from this place by fog and rain, but the people say the sun, when it shines, shines over their city finer than any other."

I went for a walk in the Greenbelt this afternoon. At 18C this was the last warm day for the next little while so I made sure to enjoy it.

18C! I forget how that feels. I wonder if I'll melt? lol Do your feet hurt if you walk on the asphalt barefoot? I remember getting burned like that, in the before times.

You do know it was 29 in BC 2 days ago?

Some places in the coast, such as Pitt Meadows, are on their 7th straight day at 20 and above.

On average though best place in Canada for April is the South Okanagan with average monthly highs between 17 and 18 degrees (average lows are between 3 to 4 degrees).

I might have dreamt that or something, but was it not over 15C in St. John’s not that long ago? In fact I just checked and it was 14C on March 23 and 24. Close enough!

It was a LOVELY year until April. And one the easiest winters we've ever had.

Officially Vancouver was certainly cooler, but my car dash said it hit 24C in south Vancouver when I was on my way to Richmond.

I spied one trillium in bloom in Uptown Waterloo today. In Waterloo Park there's a bunch of them in the woods that would probably bloom by Wednesday if the weather wasn't going to give us a snow storm. If they survive we should see them this weekend.

17C and sunny. Wonderful day.

A majority of trees have stated leafing out. Some of them are pretty far along already. Strangely enough, the grass has been super green for almost a month however, it has not been growing rapidly. I would assume it's due to the dry spring.
My rose bush is also doing good. Should have roses by May.



Low of 8C this morning.

The warmspot was Squamish, BC at 24.7C.

Can't believe how close to Vancouver the national hotspot has been lately. Kinda wish I was down there.

it's been beautiful, very hot sitting out on the balcony the past few days.

Looks like rain will be back on Saturday.

It's cold and rainy again, but I think this is the last day of it for a bit.

EDIT: I checked. Correct. But by "bit" I mean two days
