''Grumpy said'' Anybody else had enough?
Out here on the east coast we don't have any choice. If we are super lucky it will be late April but most likely mid May, an early spring is always welcome.
One more thing our winter start later than yours...you are much closer to Canada's cold part.(north pole).

Great pics, love the structure cables on the building. Our forest ranger outposts have those as well or they would turn into a kite.

We have lots of snow in the mountains but not much in the city.
I'm with you though Sheldon, I hope the snow in the city is gone soon...

This pic was taken in Lake O'Hara near lake Louise. It's normally 6 ' under the eaves of this little hut. I took this pic on Mar 18.

Some very cool pictures guys. Although I have to admit, those sort of places wouldn't be high on my list of places that I'd want to visit. I got cold just looking at the pictures.

Since having surgery on both of my shoulders 10 years ago, I shovel very little snow. Both my wife and daughter get really pissed, if they even think I've picked up a shovel.

I've had enough of this cold rain. I am now suffering from the weather blues and getting depressed.

Well, the snow here is pretty much all gone. Just a little cool. Temperatures should moderate over the next little while...between +5C and +8C. But I don't trust the forecasts. We've had snow in May and June before. Seeing some sun once in awhile certainly helps the mood. Love the pics Phil
