Toronto Spring

Spring is slowly arriving in Toronto, but winter is still trying to hang on.

Scraping Window, Cold Weather, Toronto, Spring, Season changesThis morning I got to scrape the frost off of the windows of the car before we left for church services. My friend’s oldest daughter is laughing at me since I haven’t had to do this for a very long time. It brought back a lot of memories of living in the Midwest though, so it was worth it.

There are definitely signs of spring around

My friends were excited to see a gray squirrel as most of the squirrels in the area are Black Squirrels.

It was so warm that we also decided to take a walk to the park. On the way I spotted a robin in a tree. Robins are always one of the first signs of spring, so it is definitely starting to take hold.

However, I just looked at the forecast and it looks like there is a chance of snow about a week from now.
