End of Winter?

Yesterday, the last day of winter, ended with clear skies, slightly warmer temperatures and the hope that the long, brutal winter that most of the country had endured was in sight. Although it was still a bit on the chilly side, I went for an early morning run on a woods road near my house and was optimistic that the weather had taken a turn for the better.

On the way to my running trail (woods road) I got a nice photo of a couple of deer which were also out for a run.

There were also a few  deer strolling along the road and I managed to snap some photos on my run.

At the end of my run, I was quite surprised when I checked my Garmin and realized that I had covered three miles in 30:20 in spite of slowing down to take the photos.  Not only was I happy with my time I was also looking forward to spring.

Oh yes, according to the calendar, today is the first day of spring in Canada, but you would never know it from the weather in my neighborhood.

This time yesterday I was certain that winter was over. Now, I am wondering what happened in the night? Did the winter Gods come back? And why did I put the snow blower away?

The only one enjoying the snow at my place is Golden Tips.

  1. Yes, I am sure you are tired of this white stuff…I sure would be. Nice to meet you.

  2. Looks like around here… Mind you this week-end was a lot nicer, so maybe it is spring after all?

  3. We were complaining down in Illinois about the snow too. All our trails are still ice. Better running days ahead!!

    The end of winter already! For me it is the opposite: I’m on the verge of quitting summer and moving into winter.

  5. Wow! It’s the end of March and you’re still snowed under! I know you are missing the warm weather now, but at least you got out for a run! Yay! 🙂
