Until last year we have enjoyed about a decade of short and mild winters. Hurray for global warming!

But last year was like an old fashion Ottawa winter. It began snowing on November 21st and didn’t stop until March. It was followed by a very rainy and cold, spring and summer. The nicest week of the whole year followed the Labour Day Holiday, and the rest of September was pleasant. We smiled and hoped the past year was just a fluke.

But along came October and early frosts gave warning that the witch of November may come early. Last night we were hit with an early snow storm. Three weeks too early, even for an old fashion Ottawa winter.


It wasn't the 15 centimetres (6 inches) forecasted, but a bummer just the same. Fortunately I reluctantly installed snow tires last week when my truck was in for its semi-annual oil change.

Meanwhile here in Copper Center, south central Alaska, this is the first day the thermometer never made it above ZERO. I walked down to the river and found that it had already begun the process of freezing over. The bank ice now extends out three to five feet. We are definitely running well below normal this year.

Hi Paul.

Some snow has been falling on the higher parts of the UK. Northern Ireland, Scottish and Welsh mountains and the hillier parts of England. None here, but the temperature is in single figures Celsius.


Ah ! well it may keep the trick and treaters at a distance.

Certainly plenty of hot air here. I refuse to vote on folks that will stoop as low as to slam their opponents. Unfortunately I HaVE to vote on every line there way the booths are set up here or I cannot vote at all. There is no "abstain" button in our booths on a line by line basis.

P.S. We had about 4 inches of heavy wet snow earlier this week too. Mostly gone now and by tonight will be all gone except some persistant snow piles. Thankfully as I've still got a few things to take care of outside before winter.
