It's Suposed To Be Winter , Right ?!

Yes I have been wondering  and asking myself  it is winter isn't it?!
 So far our weather has been more spring like then winter since December , yes we have had the odd snow fall but  just a dusting  and it stays for only a few days a week at the most then poof its all gone and the temps bump up to a mild + 6C  to 10C or  42F to 50F which is quite warm for us this time of year .
We have had lots and lots of rain  on and off the past few weeks as well so going outside hasn't been much of an option other than the odd sunny morning where Miggs and I go for our walk and as I am looking after the in laws cats who live a few houses up the road  as they are basking in the sun in Florida Miggs and I haven't been up to much outdoors .

I did however get a chance a few days ago to see our Otter river that's a bit farther down the road from us  as it flows its waters way over the banks due to all the rain we have had and as it flows from up north down and through our valley out to lake Erie it gets a lot of the run off from other areas  up north so it cant keep up.

The actual river is behind the row of trees .

But to my surprise earlier today we have sun shining mild temps and Miggs and I were able to get out for a nice calm pleasant walk and all this water in the photos has now all soaked into the land and the river is now back to normal but it still feels and looks like spring down this way .

I have even spotted a few Grackles and Cow birds here and there at my feeders and they aren't to be back till just after Spring  but I am keeping my eye out for Robins and Red wing Black birds they have been known to pop up here this time of year  ,  Well this up coming weekend we are to have a bit of a winter storm so maybe it will look and feel more like winter after , oh don't get me wrong I am loving this weather and I have noticed that this is becoming quite the norm for us now every winter  .

 Well I haven't got much more  to add as it has been very quiet in my neck of the woods so far .
                                                              64 days till SPRING 😃

                                                              Until next time .

It's spring for those like you down in the Ontario tropics!

Most unusual weather so far this winter, we had a few cm. of snow overnight, sun is out now melting it away before the next big snow on Saturday. Weather like this is okay with me. We even made it to the beach yesterday for a nice walk, a bit cool but no wind and some sun. Just as long as winter doesn't make an appearance in March and decide to stick around!

Hi elaine...
Same weather here and at the cottage...hurricane blew thru donw there on Nov 1...our neighbours suffered a lot of damage...we were luckier...basement flooded, lost our furnace and hot water heater...lots of debris and stones all over our property...will be quite a chore in the spring!! Hope you are well...
