Spring is in the air.
Environment Canada’s Deerwood weather station near my Miami hit 17 C Wednesday.
Morden, a few 30 km to the south hit 19 C, making it Canada’s hotspot.
Although there’s still lots of snow in the bush and along shelterbelts, fields in the area are mostly bare.
Unfortunately for farmers anxious to seed this year’s crop, the forecast is calling for cooler temperatures over the next few days.
A late spring delayed spring seeding last year across much of Western Canada, including Manitoba, nevertheless farmers harvested a record crop.
