    Winter is NOT over yet!!

    In some ways I can hardly believe it ..... but then I live in Canada .... it can snow in any month of the year here, so why not the entire first week of April?

    Bah!

    The forecast here is for snow by the end of next week, so it isn't over yet by a long shot.

    Winter is DEFINITELY not over yet.

    This morning it was -10C with a windchill factor of -17C ... and it has been snowing since sometime yesterday evening. Over 24 hours now! We've got about 6" of the stuff now. It's snowing, and blowing, and the streets are a skating rink.


    The prediction is that it will continue like this till Thursday.

    A month ago I was only too happy to ride to work in -9C. However, after a few weeks of warm temps, I can't motivate myself to do it. The warm temps have made me soft.

    Baahhh. I hate winter.

    Guess I will join the Canucks. It was 85F here yesterday. Now, it is supposed to be high's in the low 40's for a few days, plus a chance of snow.

    Bummer

    It's been snowing lightly here all day, and I don't know where it's been going for there is no snow on the gorund, and it's not wet. I think it's been blowing away

    After my first winter commuting to work and being generally smober , I figured I would get myself a nice treat. I'm waiting for my LBS to prepare my new Opus Allegro. Delivery is Friday. Forecast is snow. Figures.

    Spring in Quebec sucks. Sloche and rain. It's just a barely noticeable sensation on your skin before the black flies take over. But then again, the sound coming from the geese in a V formation above your head on your first long ride under a bleak belgian-classic sun...

    Speak for yourself. Canada's a big country. The climate in Southern Ontario, where I am, is basically a cross between what you get in the American Midwest and New England. This doesn't include Ottawa, though, which is a lot farkin' colder than here. I'm guessing you live in Alberta, where it snows in the summer?

    Not to be snooty, though. That cold snap is heading our way, and, shudder, we're going to get some major snow in April. De rigeur for you out there, but unusual down here.

    I'm a little south of you, in calgary. This extended winter weather is messing with my motivation. I still haven't wavered, but I'm getting closer and closer each day. I'm heading to the Kootenays where the forecast calls for 20C high's all weekend.

    Strapping the studded (at least front) tire back on my single-speed here in Pennsylvania.

    It was over 80 degrees here yesterday! However, the next 6 days call for lows in the low 20s, and highs in the low to mid 30s. Welcome to spring in PA!
