End of Winter

This winter has been cold; it has stayed below -10C for most of February. The Rideau Canal Skateway was open for a record breaking 59 days this winter but finally closed for the season yesterday. The past three days, with pleasant sunny days melting the snow off the roof and eating away the snow banks along the road, have definitely ended the cold streak. We may have more snow and even more cold weather ahead but it is days like today that let you know that winter has lost its grip.

  1. Heard my first cardinal yesterday! : )

    Don't know if these types of campaigns are of interest but I added my two cents worth on the need for more biophilic principals in city planning:


    I always find it strange that when people talk about "green" cities they think of env-friendly transportation, sustainable development and healthy waters but there's not much talk about the actual green - nature! : )
