What Is That? Wait! I Know I've Seen It Before.

This morning Ontarions (Ontarioites?) in the South West corner of the province threw open their curtains with expressions of joy or stood slack jawed in open door ways risking exposure and frost bite as they welcomed the first feeble rays of sun they had seen in 'lo these many weeks'.
Whoopee!!
(and that was one long run on sentence, yes?)

  1. So far so good with our mild Winter. But we all sit and say, "Remember the big February blizzard of 1967?"

    1. Was there a February blizzard? I remember it was our Confederation anniversary....I remember taking a summer vacation with my parents for the first time ever...but February blizzards were probably drowned out by chocolate overload on Valentines Day.

  4. I call them Ontario-io-ians. Only because I've never thought to look up the correct terminology. And most of my cousins lived there while we were growing up, so I felt free to tease them :)

  5. It is early here. And already too hot. You are more than welcome to keep sun over at your place. She is a pushy piece of work who really doesn't know when she has outstayed her welcome.

  6. We've got plenty of sunshine here if you want to drop in and get some. He rises here at about 5.30am and stays up until about 8.45pm
    We're fast getting to the point where 30C feels like a cool change.

  7. We had a lot of fog last week in the UK ...
    I just love to see the sun on bright cold winter days - when I'm dressed up warm.

    Roll on Spring

    All the best Jan
