This day in history

There’s this feature in Facebook that’s called something like, “Your memories on this day.” It may not be called that, but that’s what I’m calling it. Anyway, here’s why I’m going to talk about it here and now.

Over the past few days, Facebook has been serving up pictures I took back in 2010 and 2012. It’s pictures of the lake. In 2010 on this day, it looked like this:

lake with melting ice

On 2012 on this day it looked like this:

Seriously! The ice was gone by the end of March.

Facebook is such a tease. Because the end of March 2018 looks like this:

Snow and shadows on lake

I guess I’m just being grumpy. We have been teased in so many ways this winter…we’ve had the rain and sun etc (see my last post), it has felt like spring off and on. But we still look like this. And apparently 5-10 centimeters of snow is in the forecast next week. In April. UGH!

I just hate the teasing. Make it winter until it’s not winter. It’s not too much to ask, is it?

And holy cow do Canadians ever talk about weather a lot!

Happy spring.
