Saw a big flock of robins, gathered to head south for the winter, last weekend. Only winter residents left, except some gulls still around.
COLD and mixed rain and snow yesterday, the sun is low and winter is hard upon us. No more gardening, but leaf cleanup and hose storing tasks.
West of here in the Foothills, my daughter measured four inches of snow at the house. She keeps a weather station at her place, Wareabouts [http://wareabouts.ca/welcome/photos.html].
Very lucky in Calgary this September, some nice warm days and no frost. I remember years when freeze-up came by Sept. 15, and others when it held off into December.
