Today is May 4th

If you were wondering, a May 4th morning in Winnipeg apparently looks like this:









Yeah, neat. Keeps us guessing.

The vernal equinox marking the beginning of spring was a month and a half ago, of course -- but the hell if astronomy is going to tell us what to do!

The weather is made uglier by the fact that you chose one of the most barren suburban landscapes (south Waverley, I presume) to take your pictures.

The evening was perfectly lovely, if a bit chilly.

Well, it was where I happened to be at the time. And at work, no less! I assure you that, given the choice, I'd have been taking the pictures from a much more pleasant neighbourhood -- or ideally, from my window without having left my bed this morning -- but hey, we play the cards we're dealt.

The hell of it all is that snow in May is barely even news around here; this is the second time in four years that a freak May snowfall has caught the city by surprise, so I barely even noted it as something out of the ordinary this morning. I looked outside and went "Oh, hey, snow. Huh. Cool."

The evening was nice, though, thankfully.

...snow in May?

Would this qualify as proof that there is no God?

...and May the 4th be with you.
