A desultory sprinkling of white stuff today, not staying around thank goodness.

we had a little bit of snow yesterday morning. Chilly but crisp and sunny this morning, about -6C when I left for work. Proper autumn weather, it can stay like this for a bit, please, so long as it doesn't get stupid cold or dump buckets of snow on the Toronto area. Walking the dog is a pleasure when it's a couple of degrees either side of freezing. Cool enough that you can walk briskly to keep warm, warm enough not to need to layer up with hats and mitts and scarves and all that nonsense.

The sunny weather is coming to an end, rain in the forecast Tonight until Tuesday, 11-12 C during the day, going down to around 8C overnight.

But we broke the record for longest fall dry spell, the previous record was set in 1956.

A terrible, and early, start to the bushfire season in New South Wales with 90 fires burning.

88F and, wait for it, marginally lower humidity, is Florida's cooler season finally coming???

Not good. I hate fires. We lucked out this year in BC, but California was hit pretty hard last month from fires as well.

Yes, the fires in California looked really bad. We're pretty resigned to the fact that we'll have bushfires here during summer, but they don't usually become such a huge problem as the ones in NSW until later in the season.

Two people have died in these fires, with another 7 missing. 150 homes destroyed.

Hopefully those missing will survive. It's been on the news in Canada, the spokesman said having 17 major fires burning simultaneously is a record.

Fire season seems to be getting worse in areas prone to fires. California fire season is longer now vs when I was a kid but part of the issue in California is urban sprawl and houses being in areas where 30 years ago was just open space.

It's 16:20 local, it's dark, 7 C, throwing down cords, but the good news is that my weather forecast app was written by a Frank Zappa fan!

I just got my first "yellow snow" alert on the mobile. Yay!
