To all you non-believers. Yes in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada today (and yesterday), we are breaking temperature records thanks to a stream of hot air pushing up from the Gulf of Mexico. We have never been this warm at this time of year, ever. This was not an April Fool's joke, although our radio station tried to make us think we would be having a blizzard.
We are HOT, HOT, HOT and loving it. I'm in my capris and T-shirt, windows open, sun shining down and we had a high of 29C (85F) on Good Friday and a repeat today of 27C (80) with a humidex making it feel like 30C (86F). We have the patio furniture out and plan to fire up the Barbie tonight and enjoy this early treat. Oh and the wine and beer are cooling in the fridge. Yeah for global warming and El Nino!
Let us northerners be happy for a few days until it turns cool again. But summer is on its way. We can feel it.
Sunday, April 4th: Yes, I caught what I thought was the Easter bunny (see picture). I want to keep him! So cute.
