Whoever ticked off Mother Nature, could you please step up, apologize and make things right again?
It's May 14 and she's dumping snow on Winnipeg. The long weekend — the unofficial kick-off to summer and camping — is two days away.
The high on Wednesday is expected to stumble to a miserable 8 C, sprinkled with rain showers in the afternoon. The normal for this time of year is 20 C.
CBC Meteorologist John Sauder is holding out hope those normal numbers will be seen by Sunday.
Temperatures should start climbing — and the sun start shining — starting Thursday with a high of 12 C, then 14 C for Friday and 18 C for Saturday.
So this snow? It'll just be a quirky footnote that we'll all laugh about in no time.
That is, once we get through the –2 C that is expected overnight into Thursday morning.
