Hope those who like are happy. This went too fast lol.

Didn't help that it was a bit rain-like and then froze over last night.

Not a lot of snow but I can imagine it being a tad slippery.

Glad we put the winter tires on last week.

For me I was happy to see the pendulum swing the other way -- previously complaining that its too hot, now complaining that its too cold.

Not for a while still. Maybe after Christmas. The way things are looking, I don't see winter having the ability to stick around until Christmas is done.
My fitness instructor messages me if I have good abs. I say not really, my vehicle steering control is not in good shape and I may need to upgrade my sensors and micro-controllers. Instructor: huh?? 😲

Nope. Since there is well over a month till Christmas is done, then you have lots of time.

I don't want snow for December, I am busy that month, it can come after the New Year and I'll be ok with it.

I just hope it's not like the winter of 2007-2008 where we got a snowstorm every 2-3 days, it was brutal. I was in school and it was awful to live through. Please nothing like that for the love of all that is good. I was taking buses home that were delayed by 2 hours or more each and I would literally get home at like 9pm at night. Awful.

Just saw what jdmkidd posted above. Weather Network says snowy winter in the GTA but perhaps a shorter winter.

Ugh, no, I don't miss it at all. It made my college days a pain in the ass. Awful time to go to school.

OP do you agree with this forecast?

http://toronto.ctvnews.ca/mobile/canadi ... -1.3685349
I only agree that the cold won't be exteme on this side of the country.

But now I am seeing something else striking.

Temperatures in the prairies are WAAAAAAAAAAAAY above where they should be!!

Nights in the coming days from EC Canada forecast are averaging exactly where daytime highs should be, which is extremely high. Days are way warmer than normal.

It is so warm that snow can't stay stable on the ground without melting in virtually all major prairie cities.

It is warm for us in Toronto too. One night is normal, the rest are all above normal. Same for days. We have just one to be slightly below normal, the rest are above normal.

That warm winter I told people about, it is already starting to unfold. I warned you all!


Oh and someting else!

Out of the last several years, this year has the lowest snowcover in the USA for the date!
I compared snow data for this same date and many other years had snow in various parts of the US. This time, snow is most confined to very high elevations.

This unprecendented lack of snow in late November could be a prelude to a more 'winterless winter' on the way.
