Well, yipee to three of the four groundhogs in North America who all predicted an early spring this morning. You are now my new BFF. Balzac Billy from Southern Alberta, I need to have a chat with you! What do you think you are doing disagreeing with everyone else. Did you not get the memo?
Don't get me wrong, I love winter. I know, I'm crazy but I really do enjoy each and every season and all the things they bring. I love the cold, crisp days. The pristine look of the snow before footsteps and paths are carved into it. The snow falling. Heck, I even like shovelling. Oh yes I do. But I am seriously ready for some warm breezes. Not super windy chinook winds but nice gentle breezes. Dog walking around the lake days, reading on the deck days, bbq days. I am seriously craving a good grilled burger! Yes, us northern die hards do grill all through winter but firing up the grill is just not the same when there is a foot of snow on the top of it and I have to first shovel a path to it. So come on spring! You are welcome with open arms this year!
