Not Complaining.

While the temperatures we have been experiencing so far this spring are still in the realm of normal, I will admit that the weather has been somewhat of a tough pill to swallow. 
I'm not complaining, though.
We had snow last night and again this morning.  The ice still booms on the lake through the night - not because it's breaking up, but because it's still forming.  We have had temperatures well below 0 overnight during the past week.  The lake has shown no signs of melting ice yet.
We have lost a significant amount of snow, due to rain and some warmer daytime temperatures, but much still remains.
I'm not complaining.
Hopefully one day soon, we will wake up to the robins singing, and the first green shoot emerging from the earth.  That day is not today, and probably not tomorrow...or the next.

Still not complaining.


  1. We cannot complain about weather.
    We look at Canada, compared to other places, and we must be grateful.

  2. I used to complain about the Ontario weather all the time. I referred to summer as 4 months of bad skiing. I now take what is dealt...but that is usually much warmer than Ontario ever was. The yearly average temp in Phoenix, AZ is 73*F and we have 167 days above 90*F. 330 days of sunshine leaves 35 for rain or clouds. Average annual rain fall is 7.5 inches. It isn't perfect but I will take it. For the winter sports lovers a 2.5 hour drive will put you in more snow and winter conditions than you ever see in Parry Sound. I ride a motorcycle so the season for that is great. If you are into boats that is a 12 month season as well.
