    Bright and sunny today. Cool temps though, you needed a winter coat. It seemed like everywhere I drove I was driving into the sun. Guess we didn't time it right. I did get from here to where we were going without getting lost though. Made it home, too. But, it's supposed to be only 26 tonight and have some freezing rain and snow in the morning. That's because we have a doctor appointment at 8:30 am. That's how things work. If we were staying home it would be nice again. dooley

    Good Thursday morning all. Currently 1°C and overcast. The weather supposed to change for the worse this afternoon, bringing snow and freezing rain.
    I'm headed out for my shopping and errands this morning, and then I'm heading home and heading into hibernation for a few days!
    Have a great day all :)

    Good morning all. It rained 11 straight hours yesterday, not a heavy rain but steady and adding up for a total of .80 of an inch.. Finally!!! And the temps will be staying in the 50-80 deg range for the next 10 days giving us some good fall like weather.

    Some rain during last night but no snow. A flurry or two this afternoon but nothing stuck anywhere. They keep saying rain and snow but it all goes north of us. It wasn't very warm, only 34 once when I saw the thermometer but it was really windy. Leaves blowing everywhere. Trees are emptying their leaves at an amazing rate. dooley

    Good Friday morning all. Currently -12°C with a windchill of -21°C. Brrr, what a change in the weather!
    I managed to get the kale harvested and the last of the beets dug up, as well as my bulbs planted yesterday before the weather changed and the snow started to fall.
    Yes, I said SNOW!

    It is a nice little reminder of what is to come!

    Good Saturday morning all. Currently -11°C and sunny. High is expected to reach -1 today, and that is much closer to 'normal'.
    No skating today, as the arena is closed for Remembrance Day.
    We will be going out to a sale later to pick some tiles for a few small projects around the house.
    Have a great day all :)

    Good morning all. It is called Veterans Day here, time to thank all those who serve, served and died for our countries whether you have an official observance day or not. THANK YOU VETERANS!!!
    Anyone remember when it was called Armistice day? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armistice_Day

    We wish we were there too! We did watch skating from Japan on the TV, but it's just not the same!
    Good Sunday morning all. Currently -1°C and overcast.
    We picked out some tile for under our woodstove and so the project begins. I have already stripped all but 6 tiles from the area, and hubby needs to help me move the woodstove out of the way so I can finish. Then he gets to prepare the surface and install the new ties. Sounds simple, but his heart isn't really into it so he will probably drag this project out as long as possible LOL I hate disarray and so I would like it done as soon as possible. Should be interesting.
    Have a great day all :)

    Good Monday morning all. Currently 1°C and overcast. High is to reach 8°C today, and that I can live with.
    Home alone for the first time in I'm not sure how long! I'm going to get some serious work done today!
    First, my coffee and computer time.
    Have a great day all :)

    morning all. We had 135km gusts of wind in the night. It seems to be dying down a bit today. Lots of snow fell on the mountains yesterday, so even though it is not cold this morning, the freezer is now switched on. We can expect really cold nights from now on.

    Good Tuesday morning all. Currently 1°C and overcast. Yesterday was mild and so the snow is almost all melted.
    I made turkey soup yesterday, with the bones from the Thanksgiving turkey from last month. I had frozen them and so made soup ... nothing like a 'free' meal! It was delicious!
    Today, I have an appointment, and then home to sort through papers and figure out which ones I can burn. Should take a good part of the day.
    Have a great day all :)

    Good morning all. Haven't seen the sun in several days and I really do NOT miss that obnoxious flaming ball of gas at all. No more rain to speak of since the all day glorious rain we had last Thursday.
