After what felt like an extremely long winter, spring finally started to happen. And, then it snowed. Worse than that, it didn’t just snow a wee bit one day and then melt away with fresh spring weather. No. It stayed cold for several days and snowed more than once.
This weather, something that I should not be surprised by and that I am more than prepared for, put a real damper on the first week of the David Suzuki Foundation’s 30×30 challenge. Usually I love this challenge because it’s spring and I want to spend all my time outdoors. But, last week it was just depressing. I only missed one day, but I definitely did not enjoy several days (not even enough to take pictures or do anything other then go for a 30 minute walk and quickly retreat to my cozy apartment).
Of course, the grossness of the weather must all be taken in context. Now that it’s warm again (16C/61F, as I type this), I’m able to look back at the few pictures I took and be impressed with how pretty things were or how interesting the weather was. At the time that I took the pictures, I was just cold and annoyed.
I feel the need to be outdoors again, but before I go, here are some pictures from the frozen hell we endured last week.
