Spring Has Arrived in Winnipeg

I now declare it officially spring in Winnipeg! The Red River is breaking up and we have at least one Robin here this morning.  That is enough to make it official!  🙂 Yesterday there was water on top of the ice. Today there is still lots of ice, but you can see it breaking up… Continue reading Spring Has Arrived in Winnipeg

Spring on the Red River 2015

I have mentioned before that I see changes every day when Chester and I have our walks along the Red River.  I’ve been saving pictures for the last several days to put all together so you can see these changes yourself.  It has been an interesting spring (as usual), with what seemed like a very… Continue reading Spring on the Red River 2015


A lot of crows spend the winter up north here these days because they have found it is easy to find food around the city.  Many more do take the long flight south though and now they are back – along with plenty of Canada Geese. I took a few pictures of crows the last… Continue reading Crows


They are predicting a high temperature today of + yes + 16C here in Winnipeg.  Tomorrow it drops back to normal at around +1 or +2 C, but the snow is almost gone already after something like +12C yesterday. I found the average Winnipeg Temperatures with the above graphic for March here.  The last couple… Continue reading Wow

A Little More Progress

Each day now we should be seeing a little more progress towards spring!  Of course we will have more snow yet – it is only March – but it won’t last long now.  🙂 I have more pictures of the Red River taken today, and you can see the puddles forming on top of the… Continue reading A Little More Progress

It’s Melting – It’s Really Melting

We have now had a few days of above 0C temperatures and the snow is disappearing!  I can see grass in my yard and the Red River ice is looking like it might be breaking up soon.  The skating trail was closed on the weekend and the warm up huts have been removed. The sidewalks… Continue reading It’s Melting – It’s Really Melting

Moon Over the Red River

Chester and I had our morning walk a few minutes too late to get sunrise pictures – but instead we got the wonderful early morning lighting.  Having the moon over the Red River in the morning light was too much to resist for a few pictures.  All I needed was the Coyote that I haven’t… Continue reading Moon Over the Red River

FitBit Update #3

I am continuing on yesterday’s theme of wanting to make sure I stay in good health.  I have been blessed with good health for all of my life except for an occasional short detour along the way.  It is easy to take it for granted when it has always been there. My only problem right… Continue reading FitBit Update #3

Overnight Oatmeal

Very slowly I have been converting to somewhat healthier eating over the last few months.  I still have a long way to go, but have found some keepers in the healthy type foods.  One that I now eat 2 – 3 times per week is Flax and Blueberry Overnight Oats.  By clicking the link, you… Continue reading Overnight Oatmeal

MTS and the Snow

I have ranted about MTS before – so no need to go into past problems with them.  I have a new problem with them now and I am not even a customer (never will be again either). Near me are those lovely green MTS boxes, full of wires and connections, etc.  I see people there… Continue reading MTS and the Snow
