Been snowing all night and will go on all of today
It’s 830 in the morning here. I just finished cutting the grass and weedeating. Sweating up a storm. Where are you?
Alberta Canada, the great white north
Don’t get me wrong. I like winter but we don’t get much of it here. December through February maybe. But it rarely snows. We don’t get below freezing but a few times a year.
It’s still not Fall here yet. I hate that. The leaves fall. I hate to rake. Last year I hired someone.
I want Fall first, but I’m looking forward to our snow days too! Beautiful!
We had a few flakes come down yesterday while the Squirrel Family was doing the Art Walk here in Barrhead, but no major dumps of snow yet, and let us all say AMEN for that. It’s weird, it has rained so much here that I have this lush lawn that you’d have in June. I’m still mowing it weekly. However, it’s covered in yellow leaves from trees that are now half bare. My lawn says June and the trees say September. The temperature is hitting freezing overnight now, so the lawns will start to look like hell this week, I figure.
yeah I hate to rake. usually I just wait until all the leaves fall and mulch them up with the mower. for dad’s bday, I was going to get him a backpack blower to help deal with the leaves, but he wanted an amazon alexa thing. I got him the big one not the echo dot, not sure what it’s called. it was cheaper than the backpack blower, but boy do I wish I had one right now. I just blow the leaves behind the house, where my hostas grow, over the creek bank. the rest I mulch. dad has leaves all over his driveway right now, but most of the leaves have yet to fall.
im really looking forward to winter this year. it was such a hot and long summer, and now we are experiencing “indian summer” dad calls it, with more summer like temperatures into the fall. in years past I thought winter lasted forever, but really it’s just 3 quick months. we have milder winters this past decade. I like 40 degrees, and most days we have a high of 40 degrees, gets cold at night though, and no bugs.
We have been extra warm this fall, but the leaves are turning and falling. We’ll get cold soon. i don’t look forward to the snow.
It’s starting to get a little cool here too. I’ve been putting the heater on. There’s been no snow yet though.
I just hired someone to put new gutters on my rental property. I hope he gets done by the time the snow comes.
As one Canadian to another, please keep the white stuff to yourself. Manitoba has long enough winters!!
It’s like 80F/26.7C in my house and my air conditioning is broke. Truth be told I don’t like cold weather
It is finally getting cold where I live. My meds make me so sensitive to heat that I welcome the cold weather. I sleep so well when it is cold out. I like to keep the temp in the house around 60 in the winter, but sadly we can’t afford that in the summer
Oh dear…I’ve lived there for 10 years and my friends were like “You DON’T want to be here right now”
dang, that’s more snow than we get in January/February. And it’s only September!
But i love the snow and cold weather, so I’m kinda jealous
I love cold and snow. We are going through a strange hot weather this week. I’m ready for it to be fall.
We typically get our first snow in the end of October, I prefer summer, spring and fall when we have no snow. But winter comes and lasts 5.5 months, I can not ride my bicycle much when there is snow.
Argh stop ! You’re making me jealous !
Cant wait til it snows here in Ontario.
You can have it, I have to go shovel the stupid stuff
