    snow.jpg

    Snow doesn't usually stick until mid - late November so this is not normal, not even for us. Yesterday we got hit with a storm from the West... right now is a momentary lull in snowfall, but a Colorado low is about to dump another foot on us over the next 24 hours.

    Trees are tearing apart from the wet heavy snow & power outages are plentiful throughout the city due to downed power lines and blown transformers. Had a gig 4 hours away cancelled... all three highways that get me there are closed including our #1, the Trans-Canada.

    Oh well... snow day, maybe a snow weekend!

    Meanwhile, our electricity providers are cutting power to nearly a million customers for days on end, because they don't want to get blamed for their shoddy equipment starting wild fires. Feel free to send some of that snow down here...

    It's been T-shirt weather here in Ontario. I went swimming in Georgian Bay a few days ago.

    It's FREEZING here in Ft Worth as well.....(actually about 55 degrees F) but back to the eighties by Monday. I DO sympathize. We get a snow like that every few years....it lasts a couple of days.....then we're back to HOT!!!!!!!

    It was 20+ (C) just two days ago here. I got out and mowed the lawn in a T-Shirt... but didn't take a dip in the Red River :lol:

    In fairness, it really isn't that cold here (hovering at freezing) but that is why this snow is so heavy compared to what we normally get... which is just light and fluffy!

    To the best of my knowledge, 6 inches of snow is a hot summer day in Canadia?

    Sunny here today in central Alberta. T-shirt with a long sleeve denim shirt is what I wore when I walked to the Post Office in the afternoon.

    We got it here yesterday. Still melting on the roads but everything else is white. A few miles west was much worse and North Dakota is a mess. But everyone in North Dakota owns an island in the Caribbean anyway, from the oil money, so who cares?

    Why? Having trouble digging the car out?

    Here in Calgary it seems that every bloody road is detoured or under construction to go along with all that snow. Walking and scrambling has made a comeback. Even long time locals are feeling trapped with this nonsense. Traffic jams everywhere.

    Sorry, the snow was the main topic, so I'll quit my moaning right now.

    Over here in Southern BC we had snow a week ago and it's still here. I have no idea what's going on. First time I've seen this in the 20 years we've lived here.
