Many Canadians do not feel like winter is over after Easter/Passover. That is near the spring equinox. We have come to expect snow, even a major snowstorm, in April. Well, here it is. Snow and chilly temps in April’s last week lead to 50 motor vehicle accidents since 5 am. today. Typically we let down our guard when summer looms large. The weekend of “May two-four” usually marks the collective sigh of relief in Ontario. That is a month away. So let us take a cue from the signs on earth, in particular from Minneapolis, MN, and remain alert. We humans are not the only entities with a sense of humour. The thermometer reads -6C. Stranger things are bound to happen.
