Just heard on our local news that we may get some snow showers this coming Thursday - will have a low of 30 that day and on Friday a low of 32.
Really not looking forward to winter!

Yeah, I hear ya! Northern parts of NB got some snow this week and here in Saint John, we could have the crappy white stuff by Oct. 8. I'm with you, so not ready for winter!

Those that can't stand temp extremes seem to end up in california where the weather is quite modest. Some call it 'paradise' as Don Henley, of the band Eagles, would say.

As he said. Call some place paradise, and sure enough, you can kiss it good bye. Just look at the drug problems california has become plagued with.

I do remember growing up and living in Michigan. The summer, with temps above 90, lasted about two weeks. But those two weeks were fantastic to behold. All the grasses and trees did all their growing and budding during those brief summers. It was glorious to see it happen.

And now they are predicting 27 for a low Thursday [overnight Wednesday]. Hope you don't get that nasty s-word stuff Cindy!!

I live in God's Country Hal - really we have perfect weather, we don't like people to know that most snow melts and the sun comes out the same day. Summers may be hot but mostly the nights are decent, but still need a/c.

So far so good, Mel! I really hate this time of year. One day it's cold as heck, the next, it's hotter than hell. Today is foggy and muggy and warm. No wonder people get sick a lot this time of year. I'm willing to bet we'll have that nasty ol' white stuff by Halloween!

Cindy we had our 1st frost last night - awoke to frost on the roof, the cars, the dead tomato plants, Halloween decorations etc. Thankfully I listened to the weather-guessers [that's what I call them] and covered the mini-rose plant. We usually have had a frost before now, sometimes even snow before now - in the past Halloween has nasty weather, only time will tell this year. We don't get the humidity you all get though. You are right - with the hot & cold weather this time of year it drives our bodies crazy. I got my flu shot on Thursday - want that kicked in before I have knee replacement & a night in the hospital.
Also taking Elderberry Syrup and extra vitamin C trying to stay healthy.

PS - Overnight low Tuesday to be 26 with a high Wednesday of 78 - crazy!!

We did have frost a while back, but outside the city. I don't have to worry about plants, I can't even keep an aloe vera plant alive!
We get our flu shots at our next appointments.

You made me smile when I read about the aloe vera plant - I ended up being able to keep one alive for 2 months, I only watered it a little bit 1x a week. Usually with house plants if they see me coming the roll over & pretend to be dead so I won't buy them.

Weather-guesser is saying tomorrow 80 and Thursday 2-4" of snow.

Over here in my part of the UK, landlocked Leicestershire, it is currently 11 degrees C, and a beautiful sunny day. However that could all change in the blink of an eye.

Mel, the first one I over watered, the second I under watered and can't remember what I did to the 3rd. My sister got the green thumb in our family. My mom can't keep plants either.
Mrs. B, I live along the Bay of Fundy so it's usually colder. Today is cloudy and warm. The expression here in Canada is, if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes and it'll change.

mrsb it sounds like a lovely day! I do prefer 80 & 90s F though - love the heat.
Cindy the expression here is if you don't like the weather just wait a few minutes and it'll change :)
And if you want to know what the weather is look out the window - with the mountains at our west we get a lot of
missed forecasts.

You both live in beautiful locations!

I would love to have Summer Jr. :)
Lets hope all the storms & nasty weather are over for Houston!

Weather-guessers now saying 2-5" tomorrow and a high of 30 :(
Friday is supposed to set a cold record for that date.

Cloudy here today with rain forecast for the weekend.
We get out 3 days a week when mum has some one to stay with her and I've been following a goose family. Time to go see if they are still here or if they've headed South yet.

Our temp went from 85 on Tuesday to a low of 19 yesterday, cloudy & snow - this mornings low was 9 & a record breaker.
The coming week will be in the very low 70s. Crazy weather!!

Cindy that is nice you get out 3 days a week for yourselves - very important for a caretaker! Was the goose family around
or have they headed south [further south than here :) ]? I'm hoping the cold weather will get the magpies out of here - they aren't very nice.

I didn't get out yesterday; had laundry to do. Monday is our next day out, so even though it's a holiday, I think we'll take a run up to Rockwood Park and check. We first saw the geese back in May. Mama, Papa and 5 goslings. It was fun to "watch" them grow up. Now they all look the same.
Cloudy here today. But no rain so far.

We had quite a bit of snow a few weeks ago and it is still hanging around. Also minus temps - we didn't have Fall just went straight into winter.
Happy Thanksgiving to all Canadians out there far and wide :)

Here in the UK we are having torrential downpours causing severe flooding in various parts of the country. Apparently, according to our met office, rain is made when cold Canadian air meets hot Caribbean air at the gulf stream. Said rain then gets delivered along the stream to us.
