Hello Humble Readers!

I'm so excited right now... I worked the early shift today (7am-3pm) and when I walked out of the store at the end of my shift I discovered something amazing.


Yes, there are still ginormous mountains of snow in parking lots, sidewalks are sloppy and slushy, and everything looks dirty and nasty, but it's melting! I know that we won't see green grass or leaves for at least another month, but it's beginning! Right now on the street outside our home I can hear cars splashing through the puddles and it sounds like music to my ears.

And even better news, the forecast doesn't call for any more snow! I know that this is Alberta, and it is entirely likely that we will get a freak snowfall in April or May (or both), but it seems that winter may finally be over!

Not a moment too soon in my book!


  1. hey! i am reading thru blogs prior to writing mine....and guess what my topis was going to be? spring :)

  2. I love this time of year. I'm glad it's bringing you some cheer. :)

  3. Yep, definitely spring here on the West Coast... it's raining. Never fails.

  4. there is nothing to lift the spirits of northern dwellers than the arrival of spring. hooray, here it comes!
