SNOW POSTS AGAIN

      It seems that I have more photos and post on snow than any other topic. Well, here's another snow post.

     We have had a very beautiful September and up until Oct. 13. We had warm dry weather. I enjoyed every day of it. On the 13 th we had 2 cm of snow which melted Wed. and Thur. Today we've had 10 cm of snow. We do get heavy snow in September but not very often. 

   So here's my snow today.

  1. Is it usual to get snow this early where you live? When I was a kid living far north like the Peace River area of BC we never had snow until after Hallowe'en. We kids would go trick or treating until quite late and it would be chilly but we were not wearing jackets as kids are wont to do. We were more interested in running far and wide to collect our pillow case of candy. I always think of that when I see or hear of the snow flying before Oct. 31.

    1. It's not u usual to get couple of snowfalls before Oct. 31. It will melt and sometimes we have a long stretch of pleasant weather.

  2. That looks like a beautiful snow! We have gotten snow in October a few times but it is unusual for us here in Missouri. You sure have your sidewalks and driveway clear.

    1. The snow melts on the driveways and sidewalks now as they still have some warmth. But that won't last before the cement freeezes.

  3. Hello,
    The snow looks beautiful. My favorite kind of snow is the snow that melts quickly, lol. Pretty photos! Take care, enjoy your weekend!

    1. I think you must have had to shovel snow if you want to see it melt quickly.

  4. It looks always nice when it is fresh fallen, but then it becomes a mess...

    1. You are so right. There's too much dust and dirt flying around.

  5. We saw snow yesterday, but it was fake for a movie set.

  6. It's that time again! I think it's early, but I'm not sure. I look forward to many more snow scenes from you this coming winter.

    1. It's that time of year. I am lucky to live in a very nice city.

  8. Did you have to shovel or did the snow melt on the warm surfaces of sidewalks, driveways and streets? It is nice when that happens and you don't have to shovel! Soon it will be time for us to empty the lawn mower and get the snowblower ready! I read on a blog yesterday that there are only 10 Fridays left in 2020! Enjoy your weekend, Red!

    1. I didn't shovel those places as the ground is still warm enough to melt the snow when it falls.

  9. While you were having snow, we were having a heatwave. Earth is such an interesting place. Beautiful snow there!

    1. I've been around enough so I get that. We northerners get south once in a while so we know what it's like. My Dad spent 20 winters in Phoenix.

    1. I'm one who likes snow. I don't like the ice at this age..

  11. "My house"? Surely you mean "The Micromanager's house"! Another long winter ahead for the good people of Red Deer.

    1. Did I say that? I'll have to correct it right away. We are used to winter so thee isn't much whining.

    1. Well, if you look at it that way winter will be over before we know it.

    1. We should still get some nice weather. We also get chinooks to warm things up once in a while.

  15. A story told over and over in my younger days was how there was a blizzard one year on my mother's birthday - June 6th! Very near to Canada, in northwestern North Dakota.

    1. We've had those storms here . My daughter put on her bathing suit sat in a lawn chair in all the snow!

  16. Hmmm... I kept trying to leave a comment and kept getting an error message on my iPad, so I'm trying again on my desktop.
    I was writing that we usually expected snow to wait until December in Illinois. October seems awfully early. Granted, I'm so hot now in Hawaii that a little snow sounds good. Emphasis on little.

    1. We're in a different area than Illinois. My daughter tells me when she gets snow. they had quite a bit of snow last year.

  17. Oh, Red. Way too soon to be looking at that. Once, here in Ohio, we used to say "it always snows once before Halloween." So far it hasn't this year.
