We have lived here in Winnipeg, aka Winterpeg or Windypeg, for 16 years. We have gotten used to the routine--snow comes around Halloween and is on the ground until the 3rd week of April. In fact, they usually take out the snow by truckloads so it doesn't pile up.
In that 16 years we have NEVER had a March 19th like yesterday--high was 75 degrees!!!!! Highly unusual. We even had thunder and lightning and rain last night. CRAZY.
Just to give you an idea here are a couple of March days in the past few years:
This is Elder Rob at Fort White on March 22, 2003,
I have decided I'm just going to enjoy the beautiful weather, but I won't pack up the heavy jacket, scarf, gloves and toque. I'LL BE READY!!!!
Sidenote #1: For those who have asked about Heidi--she is doing great. She is back to teaching and the kids are so happy to have her back. Look at the socks she wore for St. Patrick's Day ; )
Sidenote #2: I love my March Madness, but last weekend almost did me in. I still have my final team--Michigan State and their opponent in the final game is Ohio State ; ) In fact, I still have all of my final four teams. We'll see how I'm doing after this week.
