North of 60 degrees N latitude, winter starts early and spring starts late.
Yesterday, I awoke to this:
It had rained during the night, and then the temperature had dropped enough for it to change to snow, at about -1 celsius.
Much different from this recent experience:
In Northwest Territories, when the weather changes, it changes fast. There’s no shuffling.
Soon, the parka will have to come out.

You’ve got snow and we have temperatures close to 90 and oppressive humidity. Where is my autumn? Lovely photos, Lynette.
Thank you very much. 🙂
I love autumn. 🙂 We did get it here but it was short! My primary home in the Okanagan Valley of BC usually basks in a lovely long autumn and I’m really missing that. I hope your weather turns soon for you. 🙂
Thanks…me too! 🙂
Nooo! Too cold too soon! ⛄️☃️❄️❄️Haven’t even started putting the heating to constant yet. Which is unusual.
Yes – definitely too soon! I do miss the longer autumn season of the south. And yup, we have set our heat too. 🙂
Oooh. Brrrr. It’s chilly, damp and rainy here today, but please no snow. Not yet!
Stay warm up there in the great white north.
It started with chilly, damp and rainy here too. 😉
Our snow has melted now and it was quite pleasant and sunny today, but I’m told that won’t last long.
Thank you – I will stay warm. 🙂
Best of luck. It just drizzles here. Regards to Parker.
Hahaha 🙂 Parker is getting ready. 🙂
Beautiful! Stay warm!
Thank you. 🙂
Have you moved permanently to the great white north?
I am here for a work assignment that goes until the middle of July. After that, I’m not sure … We haven’t moved permanently – we still have our home in the Okanagan. 🙂
I am not looking forward to seeing snow anytime soon. Even if it does make a pretty picture! 🙂
It does make a pretty picture, especially here. It’s designed for winter. We have quite a bit of snow now and the temp has dropped to about – 10C. I can’t say that I was completely ready for that. 🙂
I love the snow! It’s been a month since you posted this….I assume you have a good layer by now?
Yes – we have quite a bit now. It started on Nov 1 and more or less hasn’t quit. We’re on Great Slave Lake and that’s causing a lot of snow. Beautiful but not too cold yet. 🙂
Oh lucky you! You can go snow shoe whenever you want!
