Contest #2 Question #2 - Spring Sprung

Living in Atlantic Canada, we sometimes (often!) go straight from Winter to Summer. Case in point - it snowed April 16th and was close to 80 degrees F on the 23rd. I posted about the coming of Spring back in April...

Despite its often very quick arrival, you know that Spring is coming when the weight restrictions go onto our rural roads. New Brunswick is basically trees and rocks, with a few people clustered about, but natural resources remain important to our economy, and that means trucks, and that means potholes in Spring. At least the weight restrictions mean that they aren't as bad as they might be... Although you can still damage your rims or loose a subcompact car.

Living on a river, another clear sign of Spring is the noise of the ice breaking up. Being a city kid, I was startled by it the first time I heard it, but I'm used to it now.

Ah, Canada! LOL Sounds a lot like when I lived in Alaska - comes and goes at a moments notice, and then all of the sudden... BOOM summer's here! Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
