Now for a skeptic like me, there are a few questions about conditions on March 1. What are the rules and regulations about the weather to define lion or lamb? So last night at one minute after midnight it was minus 15 C (5 F ) calm and dark. At 6 AM it was minus 16C (4 F) , calm and the beginning of the dawn. At noon it was minus 2 C ( 29 F) very windy and clear At 6 PM it was minus 2 C(29F) 16 kph (10 mph) and clear. So some of this was lion and some was lamb. What am I to do? Toss a coin and pick one?
Whatever happens it's always pleasant to reach March 1. We know that we can get cold weather but it won't stay long. We will be getting much more mild weather.
The sun rose this morning at 7:22 AM and set at 6:12 PM for 10 hours and 50 minutes of sunshine.
It was a good day to get out and walk, snowshoe or ski.
