This year...

Well, winter lasted a bit long. IIRC, we had snow in May, but spring lasted until late July which was nice. Then we had about a month or so of summer and the cool fall days started in early September. With the snow yesterday, we're now back to winter.

Pretty interesting year so far.

We're still having summer weather this week. Everybody is happy about it....I'd like to see it cool down msyelf. I'm more of a spring/fall person. I like it cool, but not cold.

Warm weather is hanging on by a fingernail here... we've had a couple of very chilly mornings, but the highs are holding in the 70s for the most part... we didn't really see the 90s much this year, which is bizarre. Last year we had two week-long stints over 100.

I am hoping upon hope that we have a mild winter followed by an early spring. One can dream!

You must mean high 80's below zero, right? We all know it never gets above freezing anywhere in Canada.

It wasn't above 55 yesterday and today isn't promising to shape up much better. Snow is predicted at slightly higher elevations again and for the rest of the week.
