First day of spring

It wasn't the heat of Central America, but today was still nice out.  4 C.  Headed downtown and initially made it as far as my neighbour's, two houses down. He and some friends were standing around the driveway, socializing, with a dozen beers chilling in the snowbank. Because, this is Spring in Ottawa. So we discussed - the driveway. And when and how it should be re-done. With plus 30 in the summer and minus 40 in the winter, they don't last long around here.

Eventually did make it to the bus and downwtown - the market area was swarming with people in jackets and vests - enjoying Spring.

The only outdoor cafe I could find open was at the Hardrock Cafe - note the waitress in shorts, standing on the snow.

Update - Mar 22 - relaxed at the Fox and Feather. Their rooftop patio was just opening.
