Last week temps were in the single digits. Today it’s 61 deg f as I type his. It’s supposed to stay in the 50s the rest of the week.

We were below 0*F for about 8 or 9 days, now we’ve climbed up into the high 30’s, low 40’s. Outdoors jamming just around the corner......, well, maybe another 5 weeks.

...I suppose.... IF that corner just happens to be in Newfieland.   I had a friend tell me about one time he was travelling in NL and asked directions to the closest liquor store.  With a nod and hand motion: "Oh, it's just up 'round de corner, b'y."  Well, apparently it was just around the corner... but as it turned out, the corner was about 15 miles up the road!!

Edit: The "chinook" has reached MB [above freezing yesterday and trying real hard today] .... and indeed it is a welcome change ..... even for those of us for whom jam is something to put onto toast or into a PB&J sandwich.   

Edit #2:  Birtle is no more.... relax, now ... just the jam... the village is still there.  A couple that was instrumental in organizing it moved to Wpg. and nobody stepped up to fill the void.

I got up shortly after 4:00 a.m. to put out the garbage. Of course, that involved clearing the driveway and walk of heavy, wet snow before dealing with the garbage. Hint: When the plough comes by, deal with it right away.

The temp right now is +3C.
