That snowstorm was a good start to winter here in Peterborough, Ontario. Did it meet your Montreal standards, Richard? There's a seriously slippery layer of ice on all the roads, due to the quick transition from snow to rain, then freezing. Still snowing now. Almost good enough to put my skates on and glide cross-country into town. Winter is here!

Winter The air must be discontented too, as it throws jagged icy daggers at my face. Mottled black and grey sky, echoes depression like a chorus of sympathetic, yet helpless friends. The snow has no choices, or opinions. It simply lives it's life as the snows before. Born of clouds, it falls through air, joining it's siblings on the ground below. Dogs and Children revel in it's family reunion. It's kinder to them, I thought while shivering. Frozen breath and wet clammy eyes, watching a world turn from green and brown to white. Age and Winter do not mix, I mused again. Like Cognac and Ginger Ale. The fit's all wrong. This scene is for the Canines and kids. The rest of us just trudge along.

I lived in Fla in the 70's and 80's and it snowed there once before, Jan, 73, but in all my years of living in Fla, it never got as cold as it has been these last 2 weeks. Now in NC and it snowed up here 15" last month and has been cold as a witch's ... since then, hasn't snowed or been this cold here since 77, from what I've been told. Lets hope it warms up a bit when furthur and the party rolls into town in Feb. Peace, love, dead.

we're due for another round of storms, so those plum blossoms may be a little too intrepid for their own good. But it's nice to see 'em anyway!

Somewhere on the wetlands of Whatcom County in the state of Washington the progression of the seasons has lost it's way....Spring arrived late January/early February,now winter is back with a vengeance.It is ten p.m. and the temperature has plummeted to 39 degrees and there is the threat of a dusting of snow in the Mt. Baker foothills....

It's been 55 and showery in the heartland, with Whatcom weather coming in on Thursday night: could be our last snow. My son is flying out to SeaTac to consider putting his Kitsap rental house on the market. He had the misfortune of buying "high" in 2005, and now walks the tightrope of keeping the value above the mortgage obligation. Cool wet weather out there will restrict him to indoor projects and never-ending blackberry vine-cutting!! At least Silverdale Brewery is up the road where he can find a tall glass of Whoopass!

here in central Ontario - record highs for this time of year. The first week of April usually yields our last snowfall of the year, not mid 20C. Nobody's complaining, though my body feels it's strange. Not a lot of water in the system - the melt was way early - the maple sap run has been interrupted, on & off again. Wierd weather...

all the passes are at 29 degrees, while the lower elevations are getting rain. temp was 42 until 7 am and then went to 38 here in Tacoma. of course nothing like the inundation occurring in the east.

First time we've had rain more than 3mm in 3 months! We're in practically drought conditions, not typical for our spring "rainy" season. Hard to complain with the beautiful sunshine all the time, though. I bet we're in for another cold, wet summer. Seems like our spring and summer have become reversed these past 4 or so years. And our cold winter's turned to mush. I think we should change the poem: April flowers bring May showers.

In France we had a weird month of May ! Started sunny and flowery , then for 2 weeks we had to put back the heaters on , then last week , we had a sudden heatwave crushing plants and us like in a sahara desert , then floods came up again a few days ago , and now we have rather fresh mornings and hot afternoons , as if the weather didn't know what to do next anymore !

after the rainiest spring in my 11 years on the Oregon coast it looks as though summer is here. The first couple days of Memorial day weekend were pretty nice though. Me and the doggie hiked to Blossom Bar in the Wild Rogue Wilderness area. It was only a four mile round trip but since Sheba is almost 17 years old it's about the most we can do. Am getting ready now to go climb a peak that's 3,040 ft. high and only 3 miles from the ocean. Spent a little time on the mountain Spent a little time on the hill Things went down we don't understand But I think in time we will

Outside is even hotter, and at least the house give protection from the sun, butam feeling pretty yukky about it-like a 300 pound slug actually. It is the 11th or 12th day like this, and much as I swore I hated them; I am fantasizing about air conditioning-especially when the temperature in the house is 95 or so at midnight. ********************************** By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity -- another man's I mean.

...you can shut the windows and run a dehumidifier. Still noise and expense and electricity usage (quite a bit, actually) but it's not AC if that's what you object to. Stay cool. I strongly dislike the humidity also.

The Perseid metor showers have started and will peak on the night of the 11th-12th and the crescent moon will be setting early. I went out to try and see the northern lights that were supposed to come our way a couple nights ago. I didn't see them but did see over 20 shooting stars by midnight. The weather? Sunny and in the 70's.

The rude calling card of changing seasons are the cold temps.at night -- like around 45 degrees! It has been so hot this year that it seemed summer would stretch on 4-evuhh... Alas, the wonderful warm shades of fall are ushered in on cooling breezes. ~ summer fades and seasons change same old friends the wind and rain we'll see summer come again ~

Marye, your comment on the weather for tonight's game got me to wondering what Jerry might have said in response to the words of Tigerlillie's fave philosopher, Samuel Langhorne Clemens when he said "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco"....

Nothing else to say. My neck of the woods normally has about 29 days a year of 90F or higher temps. Today should be the 67th of 2010. Add that to 0.2" of rain so far this month (normally 4").....
