I doubt the people in Regina and Winnipeg would find it useful

Don't they need snow shovels and winter coats there?

If you're as lazy as I am then there's still a half bag if salt by the front porch and the snow shovels are resting against the shed.

Easy peasy

We have leaves on the trees, a panorama of reds, oranges, yellows and still some greens. I considered wearing some sort of jumper today but decided it would be excessively warm.

I know the feeling. The colours here are a joy. I did get rid of the shorts last week (minus numbers and shorts don't go well together) but I may well get back into them today and tomorrow.

It should not be like this in mid-October!

This morning, as we drove into Guelph, we passed a man who was naked to the waist and dancing about, "ah" I thought "he's celebrating the unseasonal weather".

Yes it will. It already is. The loveliness is being affected by gravity. Makes for a pretty lawn, though.

Here too...couple of overnight frost 'advisories' but I believe someone somewhere had snow.

We have a big fir tree - or whatever it is - in our back garden. There's one little patch where the needles are sort of yellow among the green. Never seen that before. I hope this doesn't mean the tree is dying and will fall on the house.

Winter is coming...

Canada winter forecast: Snowy season to yield best ski conditions in years; Arctic blasts to freeze the Prairies
