    And this is our lovely spring weather. Ice, sleet, rain, a little snow.

    Here too (Eastern Ontario). Yesterday and continuing today with more of the same. I don't think our forecast improves until the end of the week. Mostly around freezing temp-wise and rain/snow/ice. Goody. Hoping it isn't going to be like last year, when we were still burning wood into June.

    Every thing is frozen. The horses tails are a solid sheet of ice. Brought them in, pulled blankets and gave them a thorough rub down, and blankets back on! Both got a hot hay pellet mash to perk them up. It took a while to get their tails warmed up so they weren’t a block of ice! Luckily their blanket protected most of the tail.

    Every thing is covered in ice.

    I can hear the trees groaning and cracking. Strange sound.

    This time last year, it was 80 degrees! Good luck on the sunburn.

    Speaking of which.... :X3: I need to finish my state ones.

    Yuck. Local meterologist says cold into April means a not too hot summer. I'm okay with that, I guess.

    Your place looks just like mine! Charlie got his blanket, Jack is still pretty chipper and warm.

    My poor daffodils look the same!

    My area has a whole tourism industry built on a festival for tulips the first week in May. Wonder how that will go....
