Spring has sprung according to at least one yellow-spotted salamander.

While there’s some light snow and bluster in Friday’s forecast, we can expect sunshine and 5 C by Sunday in a return to unseasonably glorious weather.

Patrick Scott of the Fresh Air Experience in Wellington West spotted the amphibian on video while skiing on the Fortune Lake Parkway near Fortune Lake earlier this week.
