Waiting For Spring

March 9, 2019

It’s March not January. This morning, after almost a month of snow on the ground, it started snowing again WTF!

Brr -1C last night

Okay, look closely. After the snow stopped the sun came out, the temperature rose and it all started to melt. I felt like a puppet on a string. Whoever was pulling those strings was cruel…this is not supposed to happen on the ‘left’ coast of Canada.

Yes, in the background the white is snow on the branches of the evergreen

The warmest place in Canada today was Herbert Island just off the northeast tip of Vancouver Island. This is about 200km north of where we are located on central Vancouver Island.

Canadians love to talk about the weather – it’s either too cold or it’s too warm. For me, I have enjoyed our northern sojourn this winter. I have the luxury of staying inside and looking at the weather through large picture windows onto a beautiful landscape. No matter what the weather I always get enjoyment but then I don’t have go to work or go out if it pleases me.

The only evidence that spring is on the way are the snowdrops coming up in the garden. Even though they had to push through the snow this morning by the afternoon the snow had melted and we are left with the first signs of warmer weather to come.

In preparation for the warmer weather the chairs are out in the shade under the trees and all we have to do is wait for the snow to disappear…and

the hot tub to be filled….hope everyone gets to enjoy spring soon

    Here in Cartegana, Spain it is a cool 8C at night, but gets into the low 20s C during the day, with lots of sun. Either too much wind (up to 60 kts) or too little this time out. We burned about 550 liters of fuel from Monastir, Tunisia to here. Only about 12 hours of sailing, less then 10 % of total. Sigh! TTFN Barrie and Sandra

    I would have been in that hot tub all winter long, trying to warm up. Cold here in Little Fort…..water line finally froze up. Maybe after Sunday when we have more daylight hours, it will give a chance for the line to warm up and unthaw!
