Well, in early April we had some gorgeous weather! I went for a walk down the third concession and took along my camera. I made it down to the wetland and rejoiced at the sight of willow catkins bursting forth. Beautiful, but, as it turned out, premature! So white, so hopeful!

I had to drive into Perth at 7 this morning to drop Colin off at school for a basketball practice. It was frosty out and the sun was shining (for once!). I decided to drive around the town and I passed this grave yard. The long shadows falling across the stones and the sculpted snow was so beautiful I had to stop and take a few photos!

During this cold snap we have had temperatures as low as -34 Celsius with the wind chill. One morning my mom called to say she had seen someone on morning TV toss a cup of hot coffee in the air. Apparently it turned to steam and fell to the ground in crystals. I had to try this, so I took a cup of boiling water and stepped into the deep freeze. I tossed the water high into the air and it was steam and crystals before it got five feet above me. This was so cool that I immediately showed David and Colin and told everyone I knew to give it a try.
The lovely Marilyn was captured on film in mid toss by her husband Michael (thanks guys!) Amazing! You should try it too. I did find that once the temperature got much over minus 20 it didn't work as well. Early morning or at night when the temperature plummets seems to work best.
