Spring has sprung

Besides the return of the ringed gulls, in the Plateau this afternoon I saw other signs of spring: Bixi stations appearing, people having coffee on terrasses or walking freakishly tiny dogs, and skateboarders hurling themselves off curbs.

I also put out some laundry on the line for the first time this year. Yay!

Also, the U.S. warship stuck in the ice in Montreal harbour has finally been able to set sail for home.
