I've been out blowing/shoveling/cursing snow.
I think I need to report you to yourself because you said a dirty 4 letter word that causes me to go into a state of fear and loathing.

It is 28 here today, 30 tomorrow, 34 Thursday and Friday.
I can't see myself shovelling, blowing, cursing snow for a while.
(Actually they are three things that I have never done in 67 years)

We had snow in November a few years back. As in not on the ranges, but down here at 200m above sea level. About 8 inches, but it melted by the next morning. I have not had to move any snow since spending some time in Canada, many years ago.

My part of Canada. -15 today, -18 tomorrow. Been shoveling and cursing snow for a large portion of 68 years. And we have well over 8" now. It should be melted off sometime in the next 8 months. We may get 6 hours of daylight tomorrow if the damnable clouds part for the first time in weeks.
Hope to take some gear for a walk tomorrow, maybe a sunrise over Hudson's Bay if the perpetual fog clears off. It's Rememberance Day for us (Veteran's for our American cousins), the equivalent of Anzac Day in your parts.

Jac, is that -15 & -18 C or F? I guess it doesn't matter at that temp: its just VERY cold.
We get a day or two at -6C each winter - frost, not snow - but then beautiful sunny days following.
The really bad days are when the fog doesn't lift until mid afternoon and is down again by 4pm - once again only a day or two each winter.
I'm only an hour and a half from the snow fields - popular with many: I just never feel the urge to go up!




edit: That -6C is the minimum temp; the sunny day following would be in the range 13-15C. The foggy days would be in the range 7-10C. You would call that a mild winter? (You might call that a so-and-so hot winter!!)

That's why you have block heaters and we dont! Man, that's cold. The inside of our Freezer is -22.

Celcius. So approaching our Yankee cousin's Fahreheit 0 degrees. Not VERY cold yet but working on it. But for Grise Fiord, one of the communities I supervise a tad further north, it'll hit close to -30C this week. The sunset up there was November 3rd and sunrise should about February 10th. We're not so bad, we're still below the Arctic Circle.

On this day 96 years ago my grandfather was at what is not called Colonel Light Gardens.


He was much relieved that he was at a place he could show us when he heard the big news.

I think it hit -6C once around here for about half an hour when I was a lad. No, I think I might be exaggerating... more like -4C for twenty minutes.
