It was suppose to snow tonight, but I think the weatherman is wrong this time and Spring is here to stay.
Still have snow, but I can see green weeds from the house. :)

Got 4 fresh inches of the white crap in the Ottawa Valley today - going to -13 tonight. Oh well, the forecast says we'll be making syrup this time next week. Now if I can just muster the strength to trudge through the crap to hang the rest of the pails, I'll be ok. Thank goodness I'm following a younger fellow who's breaking trail and tapping the spyles in...

Justanotherider ;
That sounds like so much fun! :)
We used to live in Ottawa - Hammond.
The winters were beautiful, if you didn't go anywhere.

Keep thinking of fresh organic maple syrup. Follow the younger fellow :)

We did buy snowshoes for the whole family when we lived in Ottawa. Afraid we would get lost in the mountains of snow.

We had maple trees, but we didn't tap them and now, we don't have any trees.

Spring is coming - you're probably a couple weeks behind everyone else.
Think maple syrup, french toast and pancakes. :)

Oh No Laura!
You have way too much snow.
I hope you see a sign of spring soon.
Thank You for the picture Laura!
It's raining today and I'm starting to see mud.
I can hardly wait to either have a gravelled or paved driveway.

Well,it's officially here in the Ottawa Valley - maples have shut down, all the syrup is made, garder snakes are out, frogs are chirping and chipmunks are mating. Life is good.
