It's official. The 24hr snow line on the weather network weekly forecasts just started appearing today.

It says 5cm for next Friday.

I hope we get snow this year. The local north shore mountains don't even have any yet.

...move in my direction and it won’t be an ‘if’ but a ‘when’ question. It barrels down on us with no hesitation, and there is nothing pleasant, romantic or even vaguely Chocolate Boxy about it, it is a relentless horrible killer, until at least next April we are guaranteed an alternative lifestyle that I have realized has shaped the minds of East Coasters. They look out for each other and accommodate each other’s foibles because this climate is so terribly atrocious. It’s an endure rather than enjoy scenario here, and I’m not looking forward to it.

Ontario already had some of that 4 letter word stuff - though thankfully not where I am (it wasn't that far away though)!

We've already had snow in BC. I think the earliest fall was in mid-late August, in the north-east of the province.

We have snow reports regularly now on the TV weather reports ......... but it is all in the Interior and the north, mountain passes getting snow most nights in the last week.

The coast mountains might be getting something in the next week as the high pressure ridge over us is on its way out.

We have snow. Not enough to stop the tractor but it has four wheel drive and an ultra low gear range.

We've had snow of and on for a few weeks now. It was quite slippery out there this morning, there was a Mustang gingerly navigating the roundabout and staying motionless at the lights. I had the Exploder with studded tires and still struggled to get round the second roundabout. OH had the TT, to do an oil change, he said it stuck to the road like glue but he was careful approaching the known dodgy curve as he didn't want to call me if he put it in the ditch lol. Oh yay, for winter driving.

that means a month closer to spring! We have been lucky so far, especially compared to last winter! Let's hope mother nature doesn't go mental now.

It properly snowed! Winter is officially in Red Deer. So far so good in the TT, OH did ok with his Lincoln Town car, even with studded tyres he struggled uphill. 1st year in about 6 for me without studded, but I do have winters. Still learning what the TT will and won't do in the snow and ice.
