-March, who? It can't be March!
Oh, but it is! It is! You wouldn't know it, though, if you lived here in Barrie and looked out your window this early morning. Your eyes would see snow piled high on your neighbours' front lawns, driveways fresh with fallen snow, cars encrusted in ice, and snowflakes falling ever so slowly, but surely.

It looks like a perfectly wintry day with no sign of Spring in sight. Police are advising motorists to stay off the roads unless completely necessary, as the highways are slippery with ice and continuous falling snow. School buses have been cancelled and numerous collisions have been reported.
Even though our first day of March is bringing with it more wintry weather, the end IS in sight. Afterall, it's the month of Spring and the promise of crocuses, daffodils and tulips! It's the start of maple syrup season and in just ten days it'll be Spring break! Children young and old, will be home from school for an entire week! My mother will be spending a few days with us and my girls are so excited! And of course, the weather will get milder, the snow will eventually melt and the yellow grass will give way to one of my favorite signs of Spring - the American robin!
Happy March and early Spring! I'm waiting, as patiently as I can. It'll get here...it always does! xo
