Bizarre Spring

This is definitely the most bizarre weather I recall in the last 8 years.  Normally my spring working in garden centres and gardens has a predictability to it.  You start out with long johns and extra layers (sometimes waterproof) in early April.  Then gradually take off a layer every few days or week until you hit shorts and t-shirt weather.  There is usually the odd rain day but this year is crazy.  Yesterday it was short weather (28 degrees) - today back to extra layers and full rain gear at 7 degrees.  That is just one example - the whole spring has been like this.  It is very hard to plan my weeks activities.  And the weatherman is getting less accurate.  I go to bed expecting rain and wake up to a changed forecast of sun.  It is very frustrating but I will look on the bright side.  I get today off or you wouldn't be hearing from me!

Funny how those meteorologists can't forecast properly even with all the modern equipment.

In the spring Environment Canada forecast that this year we would have unpredictable weather. So far, it's been the case.

At least we don't have to shovel it.
