The weather is just crumby today, it feels like snow is on the way. You can hear the geese overhead heading south. There is still so much to do in the yard.

Hey bud, it was actually snowing in St. Albert for a lil while last night. And looking at the weather, looks like we may get some tonight. Winter has almost arrived.

Even on the left coast is smells of snow at night. I don't think we'll get it for a while though.

At work, Northern Left coast, I imagine we'll be getting snow in the next little while. We already had snow at one of the camps, it's sitting at about 5500ft though.

Hey Guy's its horrible here too, way below average temp.
Drizzling and mixed rain/snow on the way.
I sure hope I already didn't have my last ride this summer but it feels like it.

Yes the weather has sucked here in Ontario all week as well.
The sun is supposed to shine tomorrow hope to drive the bird to work a few more times this year.It seems to draw a crowed when they go out for a smoke.
It has been a lousy summer here.

It looks like it's trying to stay. I dumped the rain barrel tonight and it had about 3/4'" of ice on it. I don't think I'll be going on a Thanksgiving Day drive this year.

No drive today, snowed all day. Took the plants out of the pond Saturday, had to break 3/4" of ice to get the plants around the edge out.
I think we already lost the first snowmobiler this year. Someone already tried crossing a lake, the ice was only 2cm (about 3/4") thick. Alcohol may have been a factor. Here is a joke: Down east in 80% of the incidents where people went into the ditch the last thing heard was"Oh sh*t" In Alberta in 80% of the incidents where people went into the ditch the last thing heard was "Here hold my beer and watch this."

I think I'll wait until next week to take the fish out, it's suppose to be 12C (about 50F).
