It's finally spring-ish in Montreal.The warmest temperatures of the year so far are only a day away. Of course, we'll have to get through an overnight wind and rain storm before the sun finally peaks out.

But temperature fluctuations aren't the only indication that spring is just about here! Today, the Montreal Ecomuseum posted a video to Youtube showing one of its bears emerging from hibernation.

"On March 14th, the two female bears at the Ecomuseum Zoo emerged from hibernation, officially indicating the arrival of spring!" the Youtube caption reads.
