Default Winter 21-22

As we're now in November, it feels as if there should be a new thread.

Today, blue sky, sunshine 6c - a change from all the wet weather we had for the previous 2 weeks... seems to be warmer weather as the week goes on (which is good for the veg that remain in my garden)

Please no white stuff until after November 17 as I'm driving to and from the airport (Edmonton) And flying to Toronto to visit my daughter. I cannot wait but am nervous about the Hwy and blizzards.

There's a dusting, not a blizzard. I expect to use the BMW on all seasons for a few more weeks.

I'm more concerned about driving Hwy 2, it can be a complete ice rink in places. Winter tires are on.

Two more weeks isn't too much to ask, there's even time for it to snow and get nice again.
At least you have a few good highway cams along the way (like these ,https://511.alberta.ca/cctv?start=0&...earch=%20leduc) through LA and the other major centres so if you see cars in the ditch and tow trucks working you'll know.

Parts of Vancouver area had a tornado watch for a time today, its ended now though it appears.




This was taken by someone on reddit, at the airport airside, pretty good side water spout.

I don't know if it was officially a tornado, but still crazy weather.

If it turns out it was officially a tornado, they are quite rare in Vancouver area.

"the City of Vancouver has only seen three tornadoes in recorded history (F1 in 1956, F0 in 1962, F0 in 1976), with twisters also occurring in nearby communities New Westminster (F1 in 1954), Steveston (F1 in 1964), Port Moody (F0 in 1988) and Pitt Meadows (F0 in 1991)"

Default Re: Winter 21-22

Apart from a couple of days Calgary has been dry and sunny since we arrived 2 months ago. Daytime temps last week varied from 6c to 17c. This week getting colder with a high of 8c but over night below freezing. No snow on the ground yet. I have a feeling temps are going to drop dramatically come the end of the month! Having the winter tyres fitted next week.

Yesterday I rode outside in the sun without gloves, I became warm and had to cast aside my sweatshirt. Winter in Canada is always grim but, if that's the worst of it this time around, I can cope.

Environment Canada confirmed it was indeed a Tornado on Saturday.

""On the evening of Saturday, Nov. 6, a tornado moved through UBC."

Winds of 80 to 110 km/h. EF0 at those wind speeds.

We got our first bit of snow this morning. Not enough to shovel though.
