March murk…

February was a pretty dry month on the rainfall front, and we were due a change to more normal precipitation. So it proved as February bowed out and March roared in.

Not so dry

Well , not roaring, although it has been windy, and certainly a touch more vigorous. We’re missing the sun but enjoying the post rain mist and fog. It’s atmospheric, which is a nice way of saying sometimes there isn’t too much to see…


Maybe the mess and murkiness matches the global mood – what awful events there are taking place in Eastern Europe. Wasn’t the rise of populism, Brexit, the mango Mussolini years that very few honestly enjoyed, the pandemic (oh you tiny, tiny, minority of Canadian truck drivers causing such chaos, what were you thinking? Were you thinking? Really? Of other people?), wildfires, flooding and other associated climate changes more than enough to be contending with without throwing another war into the mix? Goodness, aren’t the fragile egos of powerful individuals truly pathetic, as well as incredibly dangerous?

A bit brighter?

Anyway, onwards we go, and March madness it is, with fingers crossed good people with humane instincts will prevail…

Late Thursday – March murk? Where?!

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. what I personally detest about these so called patriot Canadians ( who are nothing more than a minority of truckers and anti-vaccination) is that they have taken the flag and used it in a very un-Canadian manner. I see morons driving around with the flag attached. We should ship them off to Ukraine if they want to protest so strongly!


    1. Hard to be optimistic about a swift and fair conclusion for Ukrainians, and impossible to comprehend quite how they’re suffering, and what Putin thinks he’s gaining…
      As for the truck convoy thing – I honestly don’t know that they knew what they were doing, beyond making a noise and nuisance of themselves. “Notice me, notice me!” “But please don’t arrest me or expect me to be accountable for my actions!” Pathetic.
      I hope all is well with you, Kelly!


  2. You echoed my sentiments exactly with events in the world. I like the days that are foggy and moody, though I want a cuddly blanket and possibly a warm fire nearby. We got a good dump of snow which makes me happy for the dry earth. And it is pretty again. More photos soon. Enjoy the weekend.


  3. You’re right, we’ve had too many waves of mess and murkiness. I don’t know why I thought we might have a little break after the latest surge of the pandemic, but it appears I will continue to be shocked daily by world events and my pessimist vibes are out of control. We continue to have a few days of winter than a few days of spring and I’ve already told Harper to expect snowy paws tomorrow because I’m not missing the Everton/Spurs match to shovel paths.🐾🙂


    1. Yes, hard to rein in the pessimist vibes just now.
      On a lighter pessimism note, I hope you enjoyed the Spurs-Everton game, because I didn’t enjoy reading about it! Very happy to have been at work and unable to view. Relegation? I think so…
      I hope your week is going well – looks like the start of a long thaw and heading into spring? There’s optimism for you!
