Isn’t it supposed to be spring? – A Poem

Snowy Day in April, photo by mzrosie

Looking out the window
and what do I see?
A beautiful snowy winter day
But isn’t it supposed to be spring?
When flowers bloom
and robins sing?
When we put on rubber boots
and play in the pouring rain?
Mother Nature, what’s happening?
Don’t wanna be disrespecful
’cause ’tis a beautiful day after all
But calendar shows it is April
It is supposed to be spring.
Well, isn’t it?

I took that picture this morning from my balcony.  Snow coming down in April.  It didn’t last long, for today anyway.  More snow in the forecast here in Toronto.  Lucky us!

Winter is Back in Toronto

It never really left.  It was just hiding around the corner and, as soon as we put away our winter clothes, it came back with an evil grin.  Toronto had ice pellets that turned into freezing rain overnight and everything was covered with ice today.  It was really pretty to look at.  Definitely not for walking or driving though.  But hey, this is Canada.  We live in igloos.

Here are some pictures I took today on my way to the bakery:
