November tradition

Here it is. My annual "We live north of the 54th parallel and I'm SHOCKED that it snowed in November!" Picture. As if it's some great surprise that it would snow at this time of year in a place that has snow on the ground for a good six months of the year.

But I can't help myself. It's tradition to talk about how late/early the snow is or warm/cold November is.

Still...when we went to bed last night there was no snow at all. When we woke up this morning there was a good six inches on the ground. Definitely worth talking about eh? I thought I'd throw in the "eh" just to add a little more Canadiana. Now I guess I'll go fry up some back bacon and then go out and build an igloo or something. I'm sure my neighbour is already hooking up her dogsled...

Just doing my patriotic duty.

We had our first snow right on schedule about the third week of October. BUT, then we have had very warm days ever since and the dogs are going crazy with their "Where is Winter?" chant.

Your neighbour probably IS hooking up her sled, and I'd be willing to bet you've got bacon sizzling--not sure about the whole igloo thing!
