April Showers?

When growing up I would hear the term “April showers” and not truly understand the reason for the expression because we did not have them in Johannesburg. Since living in Toronto, though, I have experienced wet days during the fourth month of the year. The temperatures rise, birds sing, and moisture is seen in the form of rain.

This year April seems to be a little different. Since Friday (1 April), the temperatures have dropped and this weekend we had flurries. This morning as I stepped outside, a wintery sight was waiting for me.

I hope Old Man Winter does not linger. Instead, I wish to welcome April showers and the show of Spring.

Has your weather been normal for April?

    1. I have noticed while reading posts in the blogoshere that we are not the only ones getting snow. Sigh! Warm weather would be nice. I want to move my winter coat to the back of the closet!

  1. It does look a tad cold there, Colline. Hopefully that’s the last burst of cold weather for you. Here in Melbourne, Australia, we are having some warm days but the cold days are coming along as we are heading into winter. Am hoping winter is a short one this year 😊


  2. I think that was only Winter’s goodbye song before Spring really starts to show up Colline. 😀

    Around here it’s cool in the mornings and still hot during the day, but not too hot. Seems normal this side.


      1. Now that is strange weather indeed. Here it’s cloudy and cool. Seems it’s moving over to this side. I also hope they are wrong. You’re supposed to have Spring there?
