yes, and they all begin with "f" (and I don't mean Fahrenheit). Make sure the weather isn't in the "f" range when we get together at T-giving, buddy.

BlueCat....I'm sending you my hot weather!

Alix, I'll take 2 snowmen, 14 snowballs, a birdhouse and a side of icicles. And, can you make that to go?

I have to agree with Alix here, having snow this early is not fun, especially when you have it for six months like they do in Alberta and like we do here in Maine. It's really pretty the first few snow falls, and especially around Christmas, but after that it get out of control with the piles and piles of snow, the shoveling, the icy roads. But hey, it's fun to throw snowballs, make snow forts, go sledding, skiing, snowmobiling.

Wow, I cannot even imagine hitting 87 in October. Anything between 50-80 degrees is just perfect for me.

Thats crazy.
Haha!
We've had snow in Ontario, but not enough to stay on the ground. Well in Oshawa at least.

Just an update for jkath. I know you will appreciate that it is currently about 15-20F here and not much hope of it getting warmer before about Thursday. The snow stopped some time Saturday night but we have about 8 inches of the dreaded white stuff.

I'm so green with envy...you have no idea!
Fortunately, there's a slight cloud cover, so it may not get higher than 75 today. And, at least it gets chilly in the evening....

No snow on the ground here yet, but we have had some snow already (although it's warmed up a bit today...)
