I don't think that this will ever turn into a monster thread like Dr. G's "Shangri-la Clubhouse"...but I think that it could be an interesting way for all of us to compare notes on what is happening weather-wise in our particular neck of the woods, on any given day.

And, since Canada is such a lage (HUGE) and diverse place, then some of these weather reports could end up being shockingly different. On the very same day.

Feel free to post photos.

Today, here on Salt Spring Island, it was unseasonably cool and there were dark clouds that threatened rain. They delivered on this threat toward suppertime, but it didn't amout to much.

I heard reports of snow at the higher levels. Scary.

So...what's it like where YOU live? Right NOW?

Still sunny and now 6C here in St.John's, with strong breezes (50 kph). We call hurricane-force winds "strong winds" here in NL.

Good morning, ErnstNF. I can't tell you how good it is to have another person from St.John's on this forum. Csonni is up in Goose Bay, Labrador, and we three seem to be the only active Newfoundlanders and Labradorians helping to form one end of ehMacLand's "bookends". I guess that Macnutt would be the other bookend.

Overcast, minus 12, about 6" of fresh snow overnight. The really big flaked fluffy kind of snow. Everything looking fresh and untouched. I'll be sorry to see a set of tire tracks as people begin to move this morning. Right now it is perfection out there!

Can I make a suggestion to add to this idea as I was considering it last night...something in the water perhaps

Not only a weather note but also a clip of interesting news specific to the area - ie someone from Halifax might have an update on the cleanup from the big storm.

Either your own "synopsis" or something of interest that local and not likely to hit the National that can be on a URL or a short repost or even a political cartoon.
The term weather can be broader than just the climate.

For instance something like the Toronto mayor's race is big enough to have it's own thread but I'd be thrilled to hear some of the neat news from Salt Spring or St. Johns, KW etc.
What ever attracts YOUR interest will be an enjoyable insight for the rest of us.

That way it keeps more people involved as the weather in TO will tend to be the same but the news items will differ.
Comments?? Just do it if you like the idea.

Do comment on the items if you wish, feedback for effort is always appreciated by the poster, but take it to a new thread if it gets going as a topic of discussion. I'll be happy to clip it over to a new thread on request. ( one benefit of moderating )

For instance the Halifax storm aftermath is of interest - that was a nasty bit of work and I wonder what's happened with the fires in BC.
Often the tales after are the most interesting but rarely make the news outside the locality. We should try and recruit some new memebers from missing geographic centres.


Rainy and "autumn" in Missisauga after one glorious day of Indian Summer on Friday.

and just for Macnutt since he advocated it

and all should get a chuckle from this description of politics in the good old days in Toronto.

When Toronto politics really was a blood sport

In Australia and the web site is out of date.
