Friday, March 23, 2018, 9:45 AM - Spring is here!

Time to break out the lighter jackets, head out to the garden and ... oh, who are we kidding?

This is Canada, and in Canada, spring is a variable season where cold temperatures, snow and ice pellets aren't uncommon.

The spring season officially started on March 20, but in some parts of the country it's been snowy and downright chilly.

Here's a snapshot of the climate across Canada this past week, featuring your photos.
