Yeah, we had a pretty damn nice fall, I'm not complaining at all. This is about how much snow we got last year at Thanksgiving!

Not looking forward to shoveling tonight, but oh well.
Not sure where I live in Calgary "missed the worst of the snow". I had to shovel out from 2 foot plus drifts and it's still snowing! I would say it is bad enough!

I'm hearing that the airport registered 6cm, out of a forecast that was upwards of 15cm. If it makes you feel any better, we could have had twice as much snow for you to shovel.

Saw someone mowing the X-ski trail by my place on the weekend. Now all we need is the snow. Flurries right now, but we are supposed to be hit tonight. And I have to drive 130km north tomorrow.

Ditto. I feel like we're being cheated out of a 30cm+ tonight by warmer weather.

Well in the extreme S.W. we got closer to the 15cm, trust me.

P.S. It's still snowing and hasn't really stopped since last night here.

+12c and partly cloudy in Victoria this afternoon, but cloud is starting to build.

Got up to 15 yesterday, but very windy last night.

Marmots Cameras are showing good slopes already. And Louise doesn't look as brown.

It went up to 2 today. Currently it is -0.4°C. I would have said "0" but I understand some people are offended by that.

Been a nice mix of the sun and cloud in Osaka the last few days, temps around 15 in the day.

7C and overcast. It's only drizzling right now in Hamilton. But last night it was really coming down. I'm sure we got more than the 40mm of rain that they were calling for last night. I'm surprised I didn't here any news about flooding in the area.
