Today was a pretty nice day and I was able to do some yard work--mainly sweeping up leaves where it was dry enough. I took some pictures and thought I would compare them with last year around the same time. Not bad! We had more snow in 2008-09 and it was still around at this time in March. We have fared pretty well this winter, with the exception of December. Hopefully we have seen the last of snow and winter--but it's Canada and as we all know, we can get snowstorms in April and May that can dump 1-3 feet of snow. Keep your fingers crossed! The bottom 2 pictures are from 2009.
