Cancel Spring, Let's call it Summer
|Ice-cream seller at the Lookout|
Don't get carried away. We've had snow in May before. This was the grim Canadian warning I received for being so excited about temperatures in their twenties in MID MARCH from a friend. Hard not to get worked up though when you see the scenes today. An ice-cream seller was quick off the mark and pushed his cart to the chalet lookout in Mount Royal Park. A popular spot with tourists and locals. You can see views of the city behind him.
|Where did the ice go?|
This (above) was the scene at Beaver Pond ice rink - sunbathers sat where skaters once rested (below) just a few days ago. The ice melt has formed a half-lake and you can see the semi-frozen Beaver Lake and snow on the toboggan runs behind them. We even saw one guy tobogganing.
