WINNIPEG – Greg MacKay followed up his March 17 photos of his backyard from 2012 and 2013 with another weather-appropriate shot this year.

The 2012 photo featured his bare feet on green grass in his West End Winnipeg backyard during an unusually warm spring that saw the mercury soar to 19.2 C on March 17.

He followed that up with a photo of his feet on snow in 2013, when the temperature dropped to an unseasonably cold -27.8 C.

Greg MacKay’s feet got a little chilly when he reproduced a March 17, 2012, photo a year later — with snow on the ground.

This year he made a statement by burying his legs in snow.

Pam Petznik, his girlfriend, submitted the first two photos to Global News for the Your Manitoba weather photo feature and they were an Internet hit, racking up thousands of shares from the Global Winnipeg Facebook page.

“I just put the two together and we always watch the news,” Petznik said, so she submitted them.

While the temperature was warmer on Monday – it was about -4 C at the Winnipeg airport when the photo was taken – the snow situation was worse, she said.

“There’s lots of snow back there.”
