A Brisk Walk

I just returned from a nice long walk, it was good to be able to walk outside again. It is cloudy here today, but temperature is about +4 c. It is a bit windy, so had to put my hood up, but other than that I was not cold. The sidewalks are bare and I can't believe how much the snow has melted. There are lots of patches of bare ground. Another day or so like this and all that will be left will be the piles of snow that the plows have piled up. Hope everyone is enjoying their day

Plan to go out again this afternoon, and the sun is shining today

@AnneEJ My problem this time of year is that there just aren't enough hours of daylight.

4C sounds cold to me. In my part of NZ it rarely gets that cold in the middle of winter. Today our summer temp here is 29C

At least walking would have kept you a bit warm. We're expecting a heatwave over the next few days so I might be staying inside as much as possible.

When it is hot here in the summer, I don't go out either. So I love the spring and fall when the weather is comfortable for waling.

When I woke up about three and a half hours ago there was snow on the ground. It is all gone now.

I don't miss the snow at all, according to my children, Ontario has had an easy winter. We will be back in a couple of weeks so I figure because we ran away, it will probably snow when we get Home.

I am sure we are going to get some more snow here, and it is supposed to be colder next week. But at this point in the winter, it won't seem that bad

Sun is shining today, so it should be nice for walking. I will go out after lunch

I'm having quite an adventurous day with a lot of unexpected things happening from the minute I woke up. I'm waiting to see how the rest of the day folds out.

Yesterday's torrential downpour took care of the last scraps of snow that were lingering in the shadows.

We still have piles from the plows, but a lot of bare ground showing otherwise

I walked by an East-facing window this morning and saw a huge wave of white coming across the field behind our house. There were snow flurries coming, and they were on and off all day. It was a cold day here, no day to take a walk, glad that you had a mild day to go out in.

They said we were going to get wet flurries today but I never saw any.

I went out for a good walk too - it blows the cobwebs away

It is sunny here today and temps are in the 50s and I was out for a walk today enjoying the sun (now if only the wind wasn't so brisk making it feel cooler)

We had flurries today, just enough to have to wipe the cars off.

The wind helped to dry things up, so didn't even have to watch out for cars splashing me

It is cold here today, but our pup Molly insists on a mile or so walk every single day. Without Molly I would not be walking 7 days a week and I thank her for that. However, have to wear traction cleats on my boots to keep from slipping on ice. Waiting for yucky winter to say goodbye.

I find that I always warm up from a brisk walk, especially if my head and hands are covered.
