Spring

12 Apr

Spring is a complicated thing in Toronto.
It does not last too long.
We had 2 centimeters (a bit less than an inch) of snow yesterday.
It was followed by rain.
It will be 18 degrees (65 Fahrenheit) in a few days. Spring this year will last about a few hours this week. Enjoy.
From my experience, Europe has stupendous springs. They last a few months and are creep onto the land and people in a wonderfully enveloping way. Each day is incrementally more wonderous than the preceding day. It is a glorious way to shake of the dark dismal winter. Europe is further north than most of o0f the population centers in North America – New York is nearly on the same latitude as Naples, Italy. Dallas is very close, latitude wise, to Benghazi, Libya. And that is much more south of Europe. The fact is – Winters in most of Europe are darker than the ones we have in North America. So the incrementalism of the European spring is superb.
But their falls suck.
