Rick, this is a cruel joke. I was just out mowing the lawn for a final time and planting my last tulip bulbs. Say it is not coming this way!!!!!!!!!! Two winters ago, St. John's had a record 21 feet of snow. Amazingly, the city was only shut down for a total of 2 1/2 days from Dec. to April. We also experienced the warmest summer since 1880, so I guess we are living proof that we need some form of a Kyoto accord acted upon (signing means nothing if we don't act upon it ASAP).
Rick, an inch an hour is not that bad so long as you don't have the typical St. John's inch an hour snowfall that lasts 24 hours. Add to this a 50+kph wind and you get drifts that have covered cars overnight. Good luck.
Hmmmm....I don't mean to make the rest of you feel bad or anytyhing but it was 14C and sunny today here on the island. A touch of frost last night but quite warm and nice during the day. Five months now with only a touch of rain. October had only 14mm as opposed to the standard october rainfall of 150+mm.
Like the energizer bunny, our run of great weather just keeps on going...and going....
I went north this weekend to Apsley, halfway between Peterborough and Bancroft. Much better if you like snow. Almost enough to ski on. Snow is almost gone in Peterborough, but this bodes well for the ski season.
Csonni, glad to see that you are using our new provincial postal designation of NL. I am told that this is also the designation for the Netherlands. I teach various web courses in literacy education for the Faculty of Education here at MUN, and have had students from Labrador thank me for bringing these courses to them online, rather than forcing them to come to St.John's.
We had a few cm of snow here in St. John's, and it is much colder than normal. I fear that the world's weather is totally messed up. We shall see..............
