Flurry became almost blizzard like.

Now big flakes falling gently...but not pitching.

What is the origin of the word PITCH that Bristolians use as in 'snow is pitching'?
When Bristolians talk about snow settling they say pitching, does anyone know where this originates from.

It is an intransitive verb meaning to settle (to pitch one's tent). It's not a Berstolian word, as such, but in this context probably is.
Berstolian?

Two week trip to Quebec City and back ........

........ saw more snow in parts of the Prairies and northern Ontario before the end of October than I have seen on some December/January trips.

Arrived in Quebec in the middle of Tropical Storm Philippe ....... warm, VERY wet, and VERY windy for 2 days.

More snow across northern Ontario and the Prairies in early November. Vancouver chilly and either light snow or very heavy frost on the ground on the evening of November 8.

Today ............. bright and sunny, about 11C outside, house is at about 22C without heating on. I have the French window open.

Bright sunshine and if not quite T shirt weather, I only needed a t-shirt and sweatshirt while outside today. 9ish was the high. Quite happy with that as we have an extension under construction at the moment & want it weathertight before the snow comes!

Sitting here, hands cupped around a nice cup of coffee, gazing out the window at a slight dusting of snow reminds me of the peak of winter back in Bristol.

Yes, it does look very English in our neck of the woods at the moment.

Same here. Warmish, leaden skies and chucking it down. I could do with some snow and blue sky.

Blue skies and plus temperatures...It's all very weird, here's hoping for a brown Christmas
