It's 34C right now. Which wouldn't be so bad except it's sooo dry.

Also it snowed last week, but this time for sure I think we're actually done winter.

Whaaaat?? We only broke 20C once (and will probably do so again tomorrow). The weather out west sure is weird.

Yeah, we've been breaking records the last couple days out here. The previous record high for today was 28C, but it should cool down to low 20's the next few days. Of course we're nowhere near as bad as Alberta.

Here it also surprise-snowed last week, but now we only have 14°C.

It was gorgeous out today. Just my kind of weather. A little over 20C with clear skies. It was a good day to be working in the garden centre.
That said, our store was damn-near a ghost-town. The Garden Centre was steady, but nowhere near the craziness I expected. And the regular store was dead.
I expect it is because today was really the first nice day we've had this spring and people wanted to take advantage of it? Plus tomorrow is supposed to be rainy and possible thunderstorms, so maybe people are planning their shopping tomorrow. I was supposed to work tomorrow but switched it off, so good for me*.

*Really, it's also good for the person I swapped with. She's my full-timer in the garden centre but had to work, and is/has a mom. I mean, I have a mom, but she is in Florida so I don't have to worry about Mother's Day this year.

And yesterday we suddenly had 26°C!!

And my husband, who was outside, didn't tell me, and I went outside with longsleeved clothes :evil:

Nope, I was wrong. Snowfall warning for tonight and tomorrow.

I should know better, though. We're never truly safe until after May Long.

It's snowing. Though at least it's not nearly as bad as Thompson and Flin Flon got it.

Thompson yesterday:

Geez. Yeah, that's some snow.
I've heard conflicting reports that we might be getting some snow on Saturday night or Sunday morning in southern Ontario. I doubt we will locally (Hamilton), but I can imagine north of Toronto might get some.
Either way we are likely getting frost that night. Which makes me so glad to have the weekend off (on top of, you know, having the weekend off). Because our garden centre is flush with plants, and all of that will need to be brought indoors on Saturday evening and out again on Sunday morn. Which is miserable.

High of 26C yesterday and today. I think this time for sure we're done winter.

24°C here. Supposed to drop again in the next days, but even the night lows are going to be 8°C and above.

We've been going back and forth a lot between storms and blue skies/hot weather. Had some funnel clouds today. This was taken in the city at about 6:45am:

I think waywayseecappo's been getting funnel clouds too today, but no pictures of that, alas.
