Cloudy with some fog, but the sun is coming through the clouds. Should be another beautiful day. Currently 11 degrees at just before 11am.

Took this picture this morning while mowing the verge in my back yard:



Yes, I was mowing the grass. The photo was taken looking through a small patch of forest that I maintain next to the pool.

I'm so happy that summer is finally imminent.

Next up - finishing cleaning out the pool. That'll be this afternoon's chore..........

Just finished a 10-mile run from Memorial Stadium Dominion up to Kent's Pond across to Virginia Lake and then back down to Quidi Vidi Lake. For several portions, it was my first time. The urban trail system in St. John's (Grand Concourse) is much better than I give it credit for. The tree-lined trails only end to cross streets, and they all have their own crosswalks, often controlled ones. It was perfect in most of the East End...





Then foggy the closer we got to Quidi Vidi Lake...





The fog broke up just before the end of the lake closest to downtown. Gorgeous light!

Misty mountain morning.
A quick shower earlier now the sun is burning through the clouds.
Humidity 80%
Today's high just 17C
Risk of a thunderstorm this afternoon

Another stunner out there, 26C and pure blue sky . The nicest stretch we've had all year. Tomorrow looks to be another beauty

Close-up of some cherry blossoms in the Public Gardens in Halifax. These are apparently Kwanzan cherry trees, what I think of as the "standard" cherry tree there. This variety is common in Vancouver too.

I think there was some discussion of tulip trees a while ago. A Public Gardens themed blog has a picture of a bona fide tulip tree. Sometimes people call magnolias tulip trees or mistake them for cherry trees.

I could definitely see myself living in Port Hope or Cobourg or somewhere further East. Looks fabulous.

Hickory



Lake Erie is at record high levels, it's causing major erosion.


Beach at Port Stanley this afternoon

Awesome! Where is the first picture taken from? Assuming Port Stanley area as well?

Both great options and both very different considering how close they are. Cobourg is more prim and proper and Port Hope more eclectic. They balance each other very well. Port Hope doesn't have the greatest waterfront which is Cobourg's strength.

The first pic is a bit west of Port Stanley. There are a lot of bluffs along that section of Lake Erie. No rock, all soil. So lots of erosion happening now with the high lake levels.



I'm not sure this photo conveys it, but the water is a long way down from where I'm standing, and those are three full size trees laying on what used to be a beach.

True, I missed that. It's extremely sad when even BC record a first 20C low before Southern Ontario/Quebec. Not that we have given any competition whatsoever, our warmest low is 12.3C even Windsor has had just 2 lows above 15C (16.3C is the highest one).

23C and sunny today. EXTREMELY dry with a dewpoint as low as -1C (RH of 24%). That's more typical of May. It's not a surprise as we are so far behind in terms of vegetation.

Low was 10C. Mornings are still cooler than normal.

The warmspot was Ogoki Post, ON at 32.5C. This bubble of warm air seems like it will stay to our north with the biggest warm anomalies remaining to our north.
Ogoki is in the middle of nowhere really.

2 days of cold weather incoming before we get back to seasonal on Tuesday.

cloudy, windy, and a cool 6 degrees at just after 11:30 am. Supposedly will get up to 9 today, but I'm doubtful.

June 9th: today is the day that I confidently removed my snow shovel from the front porch and put it in the basement. I think we're safe now, but if we get a freak snowfall now SHH has permission to whoop my ass.

Today mainly sunny and 22C
Wind 20km/h this afternoon
UV index 8 or very high

I have often wondered if the plastic bonnets are something that is going to die out with that generation, or if there's something about being old that makes ladies want those hairdos and bonnets.

The Vancouver equivalent is the old Asian lady power walker who is dressed for the gold course circa 1995 with a giant partially transparent plastic visor. That's in the summer. If it's below 20 C and/or slightly overcast or windy they are dressed in parkas.
