Well, just two more hours and a unique record will have been set. There has been no snowfall in Ontario in this month of November. That's the first time in Toronto since 1937--and it's the first time in the recorded history of the entire province. They threatened us with snow flurries overnight, but nothing yet.

@Setanta,
No snow yet in southern NH either. It's nice. Last year we got clobbered with that stinking ice storm and were without power for two weeks.

I would be just as happy if we didn't have winter this year.

@Setanta,
We had traces of something snow-like on our balcony this morning, but, yeah, nothing you could call a snow fall.

What was it I heard on the CBC this am? Something about no or next-to-no snow in Nov and Dec could mean a huge dump of snow in January? And the army being called out? Very Happy

No snowfall in Phoenix so far this year. But the temps have gotten down to the mid-60's.

@Tai Chi,
That's similar to what we had last year (or was it the year before), just a little snow in the early winter, then warm dry weather, and then BOOM--seven feet of snow at the end of January and the beginning of February.

You're just tryin' to cheer us up, right?

@Setanta,
If anybody wants to send their unwanted snow my way to New York City ... send it overnight via the USPS. I don't accept UPS or Fed Ex.

Funny! We had snow here in southern California - about 30 miles inland
it was snowing a few inches on Saturday while we're here on the coast had a
heavy rainstorm.

All you are welcome to any snow which might otherwise come our way.

We are actually having an interlude of proper spring!!

After record-breaking heat, back to lovely bright days in the twenties (Centigrade) and cool nights.

Heaven.

@dlowan,
That does sound lovely, dlowan.

Light dusting of snow here with more to come this morning. Predicting a warming trend and rain this afternoon (ick).

I was just outside with the little girl dog. It was trying to snow, but it kept coming down as something resembling rain. I hate it when the weather dithers.

@Setanta,
I agree. Decisive weather is definitely preferable!

Is it looking like a white Christmas this year?

So far, no. There's kind of a nostalgic yearning for such an event, but when one is obliged to shovel seven feet of snowfall in a few weeks, the charm of the event quickly palls . . .

@Setanta,
It snowed in the hills one year here.

But, since Christmas is in Summer here, where it belongs, 99.99999999999999999999999999999
9999999999999999999999999999999
99999999999999999999999999999% not.

@Setanta,
It's actually has happened now & then ... once not so long ago in the hills surrounding Melbourne. But then, the weather in Oz has gone totally nutsy.

Do your little dogs enjoy the snow? Smile

They love it. It makes sense, too. After all, they walk around all year wearing fur coats.
