Well, it has been in the 70s for weeks, but it was 32 degrees F a few minutes ago, about 3:30 in the afternoon, Pacific time. Light snow.

It's heading east so Colorado will be receiving their first snows soon.

Too cold to work outside, at least that's my excuse.

Well, I have been here. Cool for the next two days and then 12C with sun and no wind for a few days.

No thunderstorms of note all summer. No hurricanes. I haven't been up country so I cannot predict our winter for the upcoming seasons. But, I'll take a stab from my limited obsevations of the sky here in the city (hard to read the sky when the city lights are in yer face) and my reading of the moon phases and the bird migrations so far... fucked if I know.

On a similar note, earlier today, I took some linen and (old, "fat") clothes to the lady here that started a collection for our southern neighbours, many displaced. She got a LOT of stuff over the past days but had no way to get it there. In steps a local SMALL trucking company and these donations are on the way. Warms my heart to see her and her likes step up to do what they can to help others.

Winter starts when you need to put fresh anti-freeze in yer car so it don't freeze-up.

Summer starts when you can turn off the heater's thermostat and not feel cold at night.

That's how I look at it.

Winter will not begin until the third week of December. We in the Great White North just happen to have very cold, white Autumns.

It was just above zero F here last night.
+1F (-17C) is predicted tonight, warming to 21F (-6C), with snow, on Sunday afternoon.

This evening I dug out the two electric cables for plugging in our car block heaters and strung them along under the carport ceiling, ready for use.

For the third year in a row, it is mid November and we still haven't had a killing frost. The USDA revision of climate zones (last year?) moved us from zone 7a to 7b, but for at least the past ten years, have been able to grow zone 8 plants reliably, and a few zone 9 plants with sufficient mulch and winter protection.

Roses are still blooming. We have had some chilly days and nights, but the leaves are still on my hydrangeas, the ferns are still green, my white, fragrant ginger lily which bloomed the first time this year is still blooming, I am still grazing on the occasional vine ripe cherry tomato, and even managed to harvest enough basil today to make pesto. Not to suggest the plants are thriving and that I did not have to pick over the leaves significantly. Also spent a good part of the day blowing and raking leaves (will be at that chore until mid January, regardless of weather.) My yard is quite "weedy." Still have errant white clover, wild asters and hawkweed blooming. Used to be my sense of winter began well before the winter soltice. In the process of redefining what constitutes winter for me in my own particular habitat.

Thought I'd missed my window of opportunity to finish flower garden chores. We had the first frost on the windshield, then next day snow last week. Snow melted pretty much before the end of that day.

Today I have a bit of tidying of the holding bed to do.

I'd brought a small chive plant into the house to winter over, but Rufus decided it was not only delicious but a great toy. So I set it out on the deck so I'd tip it into the holding bed when I could. Then the soil in the pot didn't exactly freeze, but it stiffened considerably. Brought it back inside temporarily to thaw out.

Today is in the 60s (F) so I'll get it safely into the holding bed. There's contents of another pot to be gotten into the holding bed, too, and some seeds to be scattered out back.

It's supposed to get progressively cooler as the week goes on.

Birdwatchers have descended on our village in Norfolk UK to see a Great White Egret. The poor thing is way out of its region and it's too cold for it. I saw it as it flew over our house. Maybe it will be able to get some fish from the many lakes around here. I looked it up just now on the Birding Update site.

Active threads about storms we do have, but an active thread for winter in between the storms? Makes as much sense to pick up an older thread about winter.

The frigid bitter cold comes to southern New England today. The sky is brilliant cloudless blue, the dry withering freezing cold kind of blue sky. Very pretty to look at through the window, inside a warm dry room. Going out in it, though? The radio weatherman actually said, Bring your pet animals inside, it's too cold for them to spend the night out there. Don't hear THAT on the radio every day.

I was on the Gulf coast of Florida most of this week, and it was chilly - 10 degrees cooler than the temps at home in the Northern California Sierra Foothills. Now I'm home, and the temperatures are still nice.

We've had snow twice so far this year, and we're hoping for more. Some years, we have no snow, and we had snow five times one season. And one year, we had our last snowfall on May 15. I'm hoping for a good snow year this year, but it's nice to see some flowers in bloom already.

Special weather statement in effect for:

Moncton and Southeast New Brunswick
A low pressure system will develop over the southern United States and reach New England Tuesday. This system will likely affect the Maritimes on Tuesday and Wednesday with a good possibility of some snow at first and then significant amounts of rain. Freezing rain is also quite possible especially over northern New Brunswick. These bursts of precipitation will be accompanied by rapid warming associated with a warm front driven by strong southerly winds.

Here in England, on Dartmoor National Park, the weather has been ATROCIOUS ! We moved into our new (but old !) house on September 30th, and since then it has rained EVERY DAY up until today , which is frosty and SUNNY ! However, last Saturday we were flooded out by a torrent of muddy water , and had to rely on neighbours who came round with mops,buckets,old newspapers,pumps , teenaged children,etc.etc. to bail us out.Luckily ,there is a good community spirit here in Devonshire,where the only sound is often the clippety-clop of horses' hooves ; no "bikers", no aircraft overhead,very few cars, no motorways nearby, just peace and quiet and smoke curling lazily from the chimneys of every house, all of which have names and not numbers .Magic !!

The Christmas tree (picea glauca conica) is looking very sad. I'm not sure if it had drowned with all the rain or starved to death as the rain washed all the nutrients from the soil in its pot.

Rumncoke,

Pull the soil off of the base of the tree - even though it is in a pot, it may be too deep. Clear the soil away until you can see the root flare - or the trunk flare - that part is supposed to be exposed, but lots of nurseries add extra dirt to pots before they sell plants. You'll be surprised how much that one move can make a tree happier.

We have a chance of showers for a few days (it hasn't rained much this month) and supposedly winter temperatures will return next week, but the forecast doesn't show any nights at or below freezing and highs in the 60s aren't typical February temperatures.
