This morning it looked like a hot summer sun was rising on the horizon. The 25.7 degrees Celsius high yesterday in Halifax broke the previous record by 15 degrees! (That’s a 59 degree Fahrenheit DIFFERENCE). In 1979, temperatures here on March 21st reached 10 degrees Celsius. The average for this time of year is 5 degrees Celsius. Today’s forecast promises more of the same.
The elderberry trees in the backyard are already showing their buds which is unusual even for them. They’re the first to flower in springtime.
The waters in the salt marsh looked particularly still this morning.
