Date: 23 Sep 03 - 02:26 PM

We've had our first snow fall of this winter, up on the tops. Quite a heavy fall as opposed to the usual early dusting, is this an omen for the forthcoming winter?
Giok

... the first snow where I am staying, anyway, in a river valley
with little mountains and broad hills and stuff.
East of the Hudson River Valley.
Other places hereabouts have already had their first snow.

The weather currently, though, means that
the snow will pretty much melt;
there will be a hard freeze tonight;
and it's slick roads first thing in the morning,
but really no white stuff to look at.

The biggest thing I did yesterday
was scrape the snow off of my parked car
before nightfall,
so the snow would not freeze on to the windscreens and wiper blades.

and, of course, the first decent snow of winter
is thawing and melting with the current rainstorm.
Never mind. It will re-freeze, it always does . . .

Snow, then rain, then snow, actually.
The rain helped clear up the roads and sidewalks.
The snow is over for now, but the predicted cold will keep the snow on the ground and prevent melting for some days to come.

No snow, but slightly below freezing last night. I finally remembered to put the styrofoam cover over the back yard faucet on the wall (to keep from freeze damage later.)

We didn't have that many big snows even in the Pacific NW where I grew up, but when they did happen I remember in particular the evenings with a fresh deep snow when we got dressed in snow gear and went out to play in the yard. The magic of snow by streetlight affected every child on the block.

And with the snow, the first "black ice" of winter.
People are already taking tumbles.
I just talked with a restaurant employee who
went to the laundromat after work, when it was dark outside,
and did what he calls a "face-plant" on concrete.
He thinks he may have had a concussion, and will have to go be seen by somebody (urgent care center or some such).

Snow, and more snow. Not our first fall of the year, or even the second or third -- this is Ontario, after all. Billowing picturesquely past the study window, it's making me wonder where I left the ice scraper that's supposed to be in the boot of the car. If I buy a new one, I will immediately find the old one, and possibly the one I lost before I bought the old one.

Stratford is in that halcyon pre-holiday phase when fresh snow is more Christmassy than it is a hazard to navigation and sanity. By February -- no, four days after New Year -- we will have returned to our normal winter state of mixed resentment and resignation.

It isn't the first snow of winter, but the first freeze of winter. Google tells me that the Winter Solstice in Northern Hemisphere will be at 3:47?PM on Wednesday, December 21. Time corrected for Central time. On December 22 and 23 we're due for single-digit freeze temperatures. The leave-your-faucets-dripping so your pipes don't burst freeze.

Snow? Maybe. Later on.

Two days after Christmas and 12 hours after the end of a record-testing blizzard, the snow has already ceased to be beautiful holiday decor and become a damnable nuisance.

Roll on April.

Stratford had its first spits of snow on Wednesday, 1 November. Now it’s raining, cold and raw, and likely to carry on like that for the rest of the week.

Snow on Remembrance Day is normal here, although it typically melts within a day or two. I believe somebody does that on purpose to make the occasion as unlike a holiday as possible. You’re meant to go home with numb fingers and toes, and feel grateful for the roof over your head as you make yourself a nice cup of peaceful tea.

Temperatures here are chilly overnight, not bad during the day.
Mostly the weather system is bringing in storms,
and south of Canada the storms are more rain than snow.
Right now there is no rain/snow falling,
but there are stormclouds overhead and the winds
are blowing the last of the leaves through the air.
