The one where John and Elly are blindsided by a late-season ice storm.

(Original Publication Date, 22 March 1991)

Panel 1: We start things off by watching Liz catching the water dripping off the roof in her hand and smiling at the warm spring day.

Panel 2: John washes his car as birds light on the trees and sing.

Panel 3: Elly opens the window and sighs contentedly as she smells the warm spring breeze.

Panel 4: John and Elly forget that they live in Southern Ontario when they react to the weatherman on the radio saying "Despite warm temperatures, the forecast is for heavy snow and freezing rain" in baffled horror. The normal reaction is to mutter what Captain Kirk would call a colourful aphorism.

Summary:
This was set long before the Weather Network (Canada's take on The Weather Channel) became a fixture. Nowadays, they'd be hunkering down for the big storm and schools would be cancelled and all that jazz.
