Is it Spring?
(DETM March Newsletter)
Dear Dave,

Well, don’t hate us in the Vancouver lower mainland, but Spring often comes in February here. It was 11C here the other day.
What does confuse the early Spring flowers is when we get a few inches of snow. Not only does that cause traffic problems (as not many people have winter tires here), it sometimes delays our early Spring.
Stay safe and strong.
Dave Emery
