Chester,
What's the deal, just because you've got snow, did you have to send the cold to the mountains in So. California? We're at 5200' altitude and the temp outside is 40 degrees F.
We're trying to get the outside of the house painted before the weather hits and now we have to wait until the temp gets over 50 so the paint will dry .
Can we blame it on El Nino?
Thanks (?) for the and reminder


Kurt & Ann K.

Oh, man, Chester, I feel for you. We had our first rain yesterday. (It's early.) I was so depressed thinking winter had started already. But today the sun is out. Thank goodness. So, is this snow early? Might it be a fluke and not really the start of winter for you?

Nancy

Weather trivia for Alberta: in most of the province (not just Chester's home of Grande Cache, which like Edmonton is about halfway up to the border with the Yukon and Northwest Territories), there is some snowfall just about every month of the year - rare in June and exceptionally rate in July and August, but common in the other months.

I have lived in the Edmonton area for over 20 years, and every year there is snow in September - what we usually forget to mention is that it usually melts the same day. Snow that stays for more than a day or two doesn't happen until October or November, and even then there won't be enough to need clearing from the driveway until December at least. Although the winter is long, we really don't get very much snow, compared (for instance) to the places where I have lived in Ontario. It is annoying having to shovel it off of the Boler to take the weight off the roof...

Fortunately, my area escaped this particular snowfall.

The timing of the first snow in the fall (and last snow in the spring) doesn't seem to me to have changed much over the last couple of decades, but last winter (2005/2006) was very mild, lending some credence to the idea that global climate change has had a real effect.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I thought I had a short camping season here in Minnesota. I at least have green grass yet and NO snow on the ground for at least another month. I am jealous of all you southerners and west coast people that can camp all year.
After seeing Chester's pictures, I had better be a little more thankful.
Yikes, snow is soon to come. BRRRRRRRR I would love to put a frown on the little snowmans face LOL
I am already looking forward to next spring and the thought of nice days.

Ches! My condolences! This is early!


Karalyn, my birthday is October 1 and I've had snow a few times on that day. Minnesota gets it's share, too!

In fact, isn't Minnesota actually colder than Alaska? I think I've seen that somewhere.

Given all this, why the heck are we still here?!?

What's the problem. It's just an excuse to head down to sunny Florida a little earlier this year. I love to see my frends from the north country every winter.

Roger,I have just talked to my higher power and requested snow to go to your place
Geez Ches... It's 8pm here in Iowa, and I just finished mowing my GREEN lawn!!! Tomorrow I guess I'll take advantage of the 70* temps and wash my trailers...



'Course I won't be so peppy about being outdoors here along about mid-December...

It rarely snows here and when it does it's just a dusting.

There is more snow in your picture than I have seen in my whole life (and I'm 56 years old.)

And they say that Maine winters are Bad...
We won't see snow for another 2 months (maybe) but before it is all done in April we will have over 120 inches...that's 10 feet...Good thing it will melt and pack during winter or my Boler would be lost.

Not sure but, didn`t the Atlanta 500 car race get canceled a few years back because of a snow storm that went thru the South?......Benny

It did, Benny! But remember a snow storm here means one to two inches of accumulation. It rarely lasts till lunch time but is an occasion for school and other aspects of everyday life to come to a screeching halt.

Any weather forecast predicting the slightest possibility of such an event requires every citizen to rush to the grocery store immediately! There, we buy up all available milk, bread, batteries, Cheetos, etc. While we stand in line for forty-five minutes waiting to pay for it all, we discuss with the strangers next to us the chances of any snow actually materializing.

Now, an accumulation of three to five inches (which I, personally, have seen only once) is not called a snow storm. That, Benny, is called a blizzard!

Kurt beat me to it.

I was up at Green Valley Lake campground all weekend.

The dogs outside water dish was frozen solid both mornings.

(Don't worry, they were inside with Mom)
