Our first snowfall since winter started last night, and continued through much of the day. The temperature was not cold, only chilly; it was probably just below freezing, if that. The snow was wet and heavy.
The temperatures are supposed to climb the day after tomorrow, and be about 15 degrees (Celsius) for several days. That will take care of the snow, for now. Though it is expected to fall about this time of year, I was hoping for autumnal weather to last a bit longer. But it is October already, and we did have a mild summer here in southern Alberta; never very hot, and wetter than usual. I suppose we shouldn’t complain. (This statement is normally followed by a complaint.)
However, in keeping with the previous entry in this blog, I should iterate that I feel fortunate to have a warm, dry home on such a day. The cats are safe – they spent most of the day snoozing – and I was able to stay home with them, as I had the day off.
And that is a situation conducive to continuing the seasonal feeling of thanksgiving.
