It's feels like spring already here too.

Still 6 weeks off for us in Calgary, but we do get mild winters here, and chinook winds that can raise the temp 20c in an hour.

I am thankful for global warming, because I live in the North and hate the cold.

We just had the fifth warmest January on record here -- highs in the seventies and eighties.

This weekend it's supposed to rain and get cold (for us). Highs should be in the fifties Monday and Tuesday.

Never mind spring, I saw the first sign of summer today: an ice cream truck driving down the street!
