this is depressing

O.K. I know we have had snow in May before. My daughter's birthday is May 3rd and there has been a light dusting on  her birthday once. Also, I recall one Mother's Day weekend when I wanted to buy plants at a garden centre but didn't because it was snowing.

Today is Sunday, May 15, 2016 and here are some images of my Ontario morning.
My newly scrubbed and power washed porch is no longer visible.
My poor tulips.
I don't know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but this is seriously depressing here. I hope it melts soon.

  1. Not too bad a day here although it is cloudy and after a temperature in the eighties for the last ten days on holiday it does feel a bit chilly it looks far colder where you are.

    1. I wouldn't mind 14 degrees! I am too much of a suck to wear shorts at that temperature, though. Give me 20 degrees for that. -Jenn

  4. Has the snow covered a wide enough area to put the fires out, the story has dropped out of the news here, although I know Canada is SO big that the chance of snow everywhere is unlikely!

    1. Hi Sue. We are nowhere near Fort McMurray, Alberta, but they have certainly had their share of bad luck. I am not following the news as closely right now, but I believe the fires are all over with now. Alberta had a very hot spring, and not as much moisture leading up to it, so with the winds it was a perfect combination for their horrible forest fires which spread to the city of Fort McMurray. -Jenn

  5. Oh my goodness! Snow? ugh
    We have wind and cold temperatures and the possibility of a freeze tonight. Not unheard of for this time of year. It seems like it has rained forever and you're right, it IS depressing!
    Sending warm thoughts your direction.

    1. Hi Barbara, I went over to your blog, and yes, you certainly have had a lot of rain. Here's hoping for some nice warm sunshine to keep your potatoes growing!-Jenn

  6. It is sunny but a bit on the cool side here 64F for the time of year. I rather like it as I know it won't be long before it is hot and humid.

    Hope your snow goes away quickly, bit of a shock in May isn't it?

    1. Hi Sandy, I'm not sure where you are writing from. When I click on your name I just get a list of blogs you follow, but I don't get your blog (if you have one). Thanks for stopping by. -Jenn

    2. Sorry - I now live in the Midwest, USA.

  7. We had snow on 1st June and cricket was abandoned in the 1970s and everyone with birthdays in April in my family has had snow at one time or another. Hello from me, Rachel!

    1. Yes, April is completely unpredictable. Usually by May we have a bit more consistency. -Jenn

  8. Oh looking at that snow just makes me cold. It's sad for snow to be on tulips. Here's hoping we all get a nice warm up and I mean soon. We had 45 degrees yesterday and today is about 53...so that's better. But I am still cold. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. Susie, sorry, I am a child of the metric system. When you say 45 degrees and 53, I am guessing that is still pretty cool. Our forecast for tomorrow is a high of 12 degrees and a low of 2! -Jenn

  9. Same here in eastern Manitoba-except no snow. Had a few flakes yesterday though. Supposed to be 29C by the weekend. That would be something unusual for Victoria Day weekend.

    1. Yes, we don't usually get a hot, sunny Victoria Day weekend, either. Hope it's different this year for both of us!-Jenn

  10. Wow, that is depressing! We didn't end up getting snow, just some rain and cool weather. Hopefully next weekend is really nice.

  11. Oh gosh. I am going to stop complaining right now. In Ottawa we've had a very cool weekend, with Hubby hauling out the long underwear for his walk... but no snow. Poor you. Are you in Northern Ontario?

    1. Hi Susan. We are in the Grey / Bruce county area (3 hours north-west of Toronto). Later today it snowed a bit more, hailed, rained, and then was sunny. -Jenn

  12. Oh my. I guess I can't complain too much. We have had cool'ish rainy weather for a while now, and tonight a chance of frost! But no snow. I hope too, that it soon melts and you can enjoy spring time!

    1. Hi Alicia, the snow did melt by the end of the afternoon, thank goodness. I'm writing this the next morning and it is still frosty!! I brought my plants in for two nights. -Jenn

  13. For more than 2 weeks we've had rain every day, and tonight there is a frost warning. I'm wondering where spring is too, and have a feeling what's going to happen is it's going to be sweltering heat and we'll go right into summer. Right now, I just hope the sun returns -- It's really getting to me.

    1. Hi Kim, thanks for stopping by! Yes, it will probably be 20 degrees (Celsius) by the weekend. -Jenn

  16. Thanks for your comment on Fairs. We still have those - but we call the Agricultural Shows - the biggest one near us is at the top of our lane and is called The Wensleydale Show -always the last Saturday in August - with competitions for cattle, sheep, flowers, vegetables, crafts etc. and also shows in the ring.
