The other day I went for a walk in the woods, a nice bushwacking spring walk through the woods next door, where the snow was melting fast. No need for snowshoes anymore, and a special time in the woods before the leaves starting thinking about coming out.
Several of you commented on our cold temperatures here, after my shots of ice on Georgian Bay the past two days. But to us, this is not cold unless there's a wind. It's normal spring weather, when most of the snow cover is gone, the solid ice is gone, temperatures have risen from -10 or -15°C (5 - 15°F) and are now hovering around freezing, probably below freezing at night and above during the day, at least by after lunch. It's all part of that transition from 'real' winter to 'real' spring. And it's great weather to get out walking.
