I Awoke to This

North of 60 degrees N latitude, winter starts early and spring starts late.

Yesterday, I awoke to this:

Winter is coming.

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:

Canoeing on Great Slave Lake

In Northwest Territories, when the weather changes, it changes fast. There’s no shuffling.

Soon, the parka will have to come out.

    1. Thank you very much. πŸ™‚

      I love autumn. πŸ™‚ 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. πŸ™‚

  1. 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.

    1. It started with chilly, damp and rainy here too. πŸ˜‰

      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. πŸ™‚

  2. I am not looking forward to seeing snow anytime soon. Even if it does make a pretty picture! πŸ™‚

    1. 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. πŸ™‚

    1. 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. πŸ™‚

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
