Storm is over, a nasty one. Looks like they are opening the local ski hill for 3 days. A kind of middle finger to mother nature as it were. I'll have to take my daughter up for one last outing on Sunday. 5 years old and loves to ski. She'll be better than me in no time!!

It's been pretty wet and crappy out here for a week or so. My neighbor just got back from a business trip to Toronto (where he recently emigrated from). He told me that, except for the very last day, the weather in TO was actually nicer than it was out here in la la land! On that last day in Big Stinky, tho, it snowed. A bunch.

He said he "couldn't wait to get back home to the coast". Rain and all.

MacNutt,

A bunch is an understatement. A whole ****load is more like it.

So I heard.

And Alex couldn't wait to get the heck outa that place. Despite the fact that he'd lived there for the first thirty odd years of his life. (gee...youda thought he'd have been used to the weather patterns in southern ontario by now.)

We had about ten days of snow this winter out here. Which is about 9.5 days more than we usually get. I can't imagine having to deal with that stuff for months on end. Yuckola.

I'll take rain any day. No shoveling.

6 this morning under scattered cloud and on the way to 19 in the sunshine. YES!

We're supposed to hit +28 today (according to CTV; Environment Canada says 25). We'll see I guess. As I write this (8 am) it's warming up nicely. Yesterday's high was +16.7 C.

gg, what might this early warm weather do for the soil moisture for the farmers this summer? A sunny 8C here in St. John's, with no thought of drought this summer.

It's a little early to tell, Doc. We had great February weather, a nice slow melt, and that's got to help. Then a whack of fresh snow last month which was hanging around (some still around) till this week.

Normally a quick thaw and seasonally high daytime temps isn't so good (evaporation helps some farmer somewhere else, not here) but it seems a lot of that recent snow was melting from the bottom where it does get into the soil itself; ground temps are above freezing and have been for a while.

Might be an OK year, but right now there is about 4~8 weeks before they will need to be able to seed (4 weeks is crazy early, but some farmers are crazy. Standard Canadian grain crops are typically 105 to 120 day varieties, so mid-May or later is still OK). There's plenty of time for things to settle out yet, one way or the other.

For their sake, I hope for a good growing season and a bumper crop.

We just hit the big +10C here in St.John's. This is a blessing this early in April.
