Le printemps

2008-04-05

in Daily updates, Ottawa

Four months after the onset of winter, we had our first day that felt like spring. There is still plenty of snow around and the river is still largely ice-covered, but it was bright and reasonably warm. People were sitting out on patios in the Market and young woman in tank tops and shorts could be seen throwing snowballs at one another in front of Parliament.

Tomorrow, I may exhume my bike from the basement. Hopefully, the relatively heavy snowfall we experienced yesterday will not re-emerge.

Tank tops! In the snow! Next they’ll be jumping in, in nothing but their pyjamas! ;)

Glad to hear things are Springing up.
