Mild, sunny with rainy patches. Leaves are really changing now and, although there's still lots of green, there are now leaves blowing about on the streets, etc.

Bike ride in to work was a cool one but not unpleasant. Very little wind.
Trudeau airport fell below 5C for the first time this season, low this morning was 4C. No frost anywhere close to the Greater Montreal region as even Mirabel didn't freeze last night (2C). On the other extreme was downtown Montreal with a low of 6C, which is the coldest temperature there so far.

Pretty good day today after the cold start, 16C and sunny!

Manor Park had frost on the roofs, but not on the ground. Does that count as "first frost"?

Only if it's an official reporting station.

We had frost on the grass in shaded areas and my thermometer was right at 0. That's about as close as it gets.

Definitely the shoulder season here in Alberta. Drove to Grande Prairie yesterday, About 400km NW of Edmonton. Nice dry drive for the first 100kms, then about 20cm of snow in the Wightcourt area. Then dry and farmers working hard to get their crops of closer to GP.

Get used to the winter diving conditions when you start seeing transport trucks in the ditches. Had our vehicle drift sideways a bit on a bridge deck. (one of those bum pucker moments). Drive back was dry and fast.
Looks like warm weather coming again next week, with highs about 14 by Sunday.

Some areas of Ottawa apparently froze yesterday morning. Not really a surprise given it was 1C at the airport. I didn't see any frost in Barrhaven but I did pay attention on my way to work to see if I would spot any. (I have not)

Yes, more specifically in the area near the RCMP HQ. Whatever readings they have at the airport is usually the same here on the edge of the Greenbelt.

I thought you were an inner city guy.

Ironically I am a inner city guy who would rather live in a mature neighbourhood. Barrhaven was definitely not on my radar, but I had to compromise with my girlfriend due to different reasons that simply made it more practical to live there. (As well as cost of living) I find that living near the nature (greenbelt, Rideau river within short walking distance) is a good perk though.

That's what I thought.

Even though I may get hated for this (by people who'll say "the city is great for kids!*"), but obviously kids (or not) are often a huge factor in determining whether people who have an inner-city preference remain in the city or not.

*It is. Or at least, it's fine for kids. It's just a question of space vs. cost that still makes most families choose the burbs.
