I love the Port Dover palms! My wife is originally from the area, so I’ve spent quite a bit of time on that beach. They dig them up every fall and put them in storage.

Marmot is one AB hill I'll probably never go to, in the same amount of time I can be in Revy.

You have to drive to those hills, or go somewhere tall enough that it can be raining at the bottom and dumping snow by the middle of the mountain. Revy is like that, such a tall mountain. Fernie is my favourite hill, but they can get rain all the way to the top at any time of year.

Currently 11C here in St. John's. Looking at the forecast we seem to be safe from any risk of snow for the next week at least.

I gotta admit on a hot humid day they look right at home. I wonder where they store them?

This matters because in Halifax people argue that active transportation like cycling is impractical due to the dominance of winter conditions during the year. I don't know how you can argue this when it doesn't even hit 0 at night for 7/12 consecutive months of the year. There are about 60 days a year of non-zero snow cover, meaning that if there were no snow removal whatsoever you'd get around 300 days a year snow-free.

Likewise if there's some kind of outdoor facility proposed it's guaranteed that you'll have a bunch of people argue it's a waste of tax dollars because outdoor stuff can only be used for a small portion of the year. The small portion sometimes being 80-90%+.
Vancouver seems to be one of the only places in Canada that takes advantage of nice days. It's strange here in SW Ontario, a lot of summer activities seem to shut down at Labour Day even though the average high remains over 20 all the way into October.

True. I find they shut down for a few weeks but then everybody is out enjoying all the good weather they can until it's done. Its a mental thing. Then for a few weeks in November people stay in then they come back out again enjoying the early urban winter weather. I find mid Jan to St Parts the only real block of time people avoid the outdoors in the city.

The two-week forecast looks absolutely brutal though...
Downtown Montreal still has not frozen (although I have a feeling, it will very soon). The last spring freeze was April 11th. That's 209 consecutive days without a freeze. Pretty damn good growing season.

As a reference, the longest growing for downtown Montreal was the freak 1998. The last spring freeze was March 25th while the first sub zero temperature in the fall was November 13th.

That's a growing season of 233 days!!! That year saw the latest first freeze and the earliest start of the growing season.

I added to my post... see 1998. Ever since that year, it's been getting cooler.

So no, it's not grand. I wish it was though, Canada can only benefit.

If the forecast holds over the next two days Vancouver will have 14 days in a row with no rain. That’s pretty rare for the end of October and early November.

Yes, Vancouver's been the place to be lately if you wanted sunny, dry and mild weather. Wednesday was another beautiful day. Dry, calm and mostly sunny. The high at Vancouver Harbour was 10 C, the low was 4 C.

Some wet non-accumulating snow this morning. Glad I don't live in the snow belt because they are expected to get pounded. Still too early for that!

It's freezing this morning.





What types of flowers are in these two pics? They're holding up well! Especially the white ones, they're everywhere.

About 1 cm on the ground here this morning, but it didn’t accumulate on the roads and driveways.
