Sunday it was somewhat cool, but I decided to walk out in shorts and sandals today. Understandably, I know it is suppose to warm up later on this week. While commuting on TTC, I couldn't believe how many people I saw already wearing their winter parkas and toques. No joke! I counted a total of 6 or 7 people and I thought it was just not right! LOL Also, the TTC Bloor-Danforth subway Line 2 friggin' had the heat turned on already.

Whats wrong with parkas and toques?. Going from a really hot weather to cool can make some people sick. Our bodies are all different.

I would rather have it than not have it. You can always take it off when it gets too hot. I would rather feel right than look right.

Last night, it was chilly and very cold for La Nuit Blanche and it was very appropriate to wear a winter parka and toque for evening activities. Today, with the sunshine on a Sunday afternoon it just looked very wrong and stupid wearing winter coats and hats. My 2 cents! LOL

Beautiful weather!
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

-3, feels like -10C, snow, 80km wind gusts..

Was gonna go out with coworkers to eat, but screw that, I think I'll just have a protein bar for lunch.

Might prompt me to get winter tires slightly faster.

Accident and all backed up on Sheppard near Don mills station. Thank God it was on the other side. I have a meeting to go to and I would be pissed if I were held up in that. Some idiot smashed his car into the pole bringing the thing halfway down. Stupid!
It's eastbound.

Huh, the weather has gotten... warm? The temperature in the last two days has been enjoyable-- especially in the evening. The clear skies with low wind makes the night magical.

Um yah. Keep in mind, we made it all the way to October now. Nights are now supposed to be only 5 and days up to 16.
We were stuck around 20 all night. That's warm! for this time of year!
Even summer, nights don't average this warm!

Yeah... back to miserable well-above-normal weather for the next week in the GTA. Yechh!

We wait expectantly for pleasant/comfortable/uplifting autumn weather all summer and what do we get in October? We're not expected to see normal temps (highs of 15) until next Wednesday. Grrrrrrrrr. Smiling Face With Horns

I was complaining about how hot the house was. NO AC!!! Just because it is October, now AC is not an option. If it were June, it would be on with the same temperature we have now!, because this is too warm. I am smarter than that. I don't look at the calendar, I look at the thermometer. If it is not summer, but it is for some reason hot, the AC goes on, no questions asked.

Almost 11 AM on Oct. 4. Can it be +22 all year round? ;)

Hot end of September and nice early October, I will take low 20s any time.
