1. On acclimatizing:

You know you're getting used to the cold when it's 2°C and you don't have to wear a jacket or hoodie outside. #CanadianSpring ?

2. On mixed emotions:

The breeze is freezing....but the sun feels good #sunshine #canadianspring

3. On being caught off-guard:

I swear it was spring when I came to work last night. #NLwx #nurseproblems #shiftwork #imfreezing #canadianspring

4. On needing to see a therapist:

April gives me trust issues, one week it's below freezing then the very next week it's 20+ degrees outside. #CanadianSpring lol

5. On questions we need answered:

If April showers bring May flowers, what does April Snow bring? I mean aside from disappointment... #CanadianSpring

6. On soaking up the sun:

Only in #Canada do you have to shovel snow off the deck so you have room to put a chair in the sun to tan. #canadianspring

7. On appreciating the little things:

After sitting through an outdoor soccer match I’m thankful for car seat heaters. #CanadianSpring

Today is one of those days you want to just stand outside with a flamethrower pointed at the sky... #StahpFreezingRain #CanadianSpring

Buy a new barbecue. Snow. Get the bike out of storage and ready to ride. More snow. #canadianspring

12. On language lessons:

For anyone who isn't Canadian: Today is known as "Heck yes, We Survived Another Winter Day". You may know it as "Spring" #CanadianSpring ☀️

Shovelled the driveway this morning and opened the windows this afternoon. #canadianspring
