March 25 Sunday. Cloudy + cold in the morning + started snowing a real blizzard from the north east in the afternoon.

March 26 Zero this morning + lots of snow. Car of manure in this afternoon.

March 27 Unloading manure + making hot beds. Very cold will be zero or lower tonight. Kitchener Junior Hockey Team lost in the finals against Manitoba Varsity after winning the O.H.A. + defeating Montreal + Niagara Falls.

March 28 Very high northwest winds with snow squalls. Nearly zero this morning froze truck radiator going to Burlington hotbed will be frozen out I guess.

March 29 Very cold. Finished unloading car of manure got some tomatoes + cabbage frozen last night.

March 30 Good Friday. Very cold ground covered with snow. Strong north west winds with snow squalls in the afternoon and getting colder.

March 31 Very cold must be below zero. I am afraid more plants in hotbeds will be frozen. March came in but like a lamb, but it is going out like a lion. Don’t think there has been a week all winter as cold and rough as this week.

April 1 Easter Sunday. Was down home for dinner + supper weather is a little milder.
