Welcome to the Tropics... (click pics to enlarge)

Rainbow near our house

A view of Pouch Cove and the Atlantic Ocean's not *exactly* the tropics, but for Canada at this time of year, it's as close as we're going to get.

All week it's been up around 15 - 17 degrees Celsius (which is about 59 - 63 F). Today it was 12 C (52 F). All this 'warm' weather (lol) comes at a price though, we've had rain....and lots of it. Yesterday, it rained most of the day but it did manage to stop and clear out long enough for some blue sky and a beautiful rainbow, before it clouded over and started raining....again.

Mind you, I'm not's a lot easier to drive in rain than snow....but some sunshine would be nice to go along with our warm weather. I know...I'm not asking for much ;0)

I love the rainbow. It's been cold here. I had to break ice in the horses water today and that was after lunch. But I want to keep my cold for a while, just in case any moisture comes around ;)

That is beautiful! Our temps have been about 20 degrees colder than yours; would you like to trade for a while?! Just until the warmer weather gets here!

Umm...that's ok Shannon, we'll keep our temps ;0) ...... lol ....I'm pretty sure we're going to get hit one of these days (although the longer it holds off, the better)
