April 25/56 – 20mm

Lots of rain!
It is going counter-clockwise,

This is ridiculous!

April 15

What a month! It was -3 last night.
Tiny hail:  graupel in Newfoundland. (Soft hail or snow pellets, too small to be called hail.)

April 16th – still a mess

Some of us have empathy for one another. Others, like my MPP, do not. He brags, stealing a photo of a tree down, with a power line under it.

April 15th – It is a mess

April 14 – 15 cm just snow!

April 13 – lots of rain, a bit of snow.

April 12th – 9mm

April 6th

We had 2 cm snow yesterday, but it melted.

April 5th – a horrible -10 C. this morning.

Still many without power across southern Ontario.

April 4th – 24 mm of snow, hail, ice pellets and lots of rain!

Multiple, multiple vehicle accidents southbound 400 at Bayfield in Barrie. Gonna be a long backup. #stillwinter #DriveSafe

By the afternoon, more snow, more wind.
And more wind... at 6:00 p.m. 100,000 without power.

Flights delayed or cancelled.

Wicked winds, after the precipitation. Lots with power out. HydroOne says 50000 without power at noon.

April 3rd

Lightning Maps shows much lightning to the south east.

April 2nd

April 1st

The cats aren't too happy with our overnight -0 temperatures! No joke!

It looks and sounds very gloomy. People tend to talk and write a lot about the weather, and yet they're not fully aware of the full control weather has upon us. Predictions are that it's getting even worse.

It was a weird April.

As for Hillier, well, someday when I see his obituary in the papers, I'll forego the usual not speaking ill of the dead routine and say good riddance.

Spring was late in Europe as well and really impacted our tulip viewing at Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands.
