Today started at -19C and didn’t really get any hotter but the sun has been shining from a clear blue sky and it’s the sort of day (assuming you have a decent coat and boots) to really appreciate.  hard to understand why so many people (the snow birds) flee winter for long weeks in steamy and buggy Florida but they do …. well, it’s their loss.

Meanwhile, the river has finally frozen over and we won’t be seeing free running water on the St-Lawrence for about the next three months.  here’s what today looked like in our town:
