Nothing in Windsor, but there was some accumulation right outside the city along the 401 corridor. Looked like there might have been a couple inches east of Tilbury. There was almost enough to cover the grass at my house, but it's all melted now.

It honestly wasn't that bad.

Definitely worth it.

I don't know how badly you want to see Cinque Terre (or any other place) but personally I would never avoid going to a place I really want to see simply because it will be crowded.

Unless you're sure of being able to go back there at some point in the future.
Furthermore, probably the Ligurian and Tuscan coasts are the area with the mildest climate, not too hot and not too cold, in Italy.

Pretty steady temperature at 1C today. Still 1C at midnight.

It was mild this morning with the thermometer climbing to 5C.

I took this screenshot last night because it was interesting where the snow line was. The freezing rain started as soon as Laval while north of Laval it was mainly snow. Mirabel and Ottawa were stuck near the freezing mark



The warmspot was Greenwood, NS at 17.0C.

Pouring rain. And this is supposedly just the drizzle before showers this afternoon. Went for a nice morning swim around town... apologies for the big post, but c'mon, it's a Tuesday lol

Video Link


Despite all the funny street names in St. John's (Hill O'Chips, etc. lol), I think this sweet, friendly one is my favourite. Kills me that my house is just two away from such a cute name, yet I'm stuck with the surname of a shitty Protestant bishop lol







Beach season is definitely over.



CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS ARE OUT!







Now, the climb back to my house...

Starting at Murray Premesis, which is probably actually a little below sea level in that courtyard lol



Up from Water Street to Duckworth Street.







Up from Duckworth into the residential areas...



You keep climbing up the hill and down the socioeconomic ladder until you reach my neighbourhood...

Note the stairs above the house on the left:



View from the top of those:



But there's still lots more to go...



EDIT: So... in retrospect, h'yuh, this morning's rain was definitely drizzle compared to the fucking hurricane ongoing outside now. And it's garbage day in a good chunk of the core (where houses are too small and tightly packed for the individual bins, so we still just throw our bags out and have to cover them with a net or blanket, by law, to discourage the seagulls) - so there are approximately six garbage bags in the middle of every block, half of them spilling their contents lol

Here's a nice new 8-minute ASMR video during a road trip and this time between the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and the state of Maine

A fairly decent week ahead. Highs ranging from 3 to 10/12 early next week.
Currently its 0 by the airport, but my backyard is about 3C.

They must've been describing Highway 11 and not 17, as the latter is actually quite an interesting and engaging drive along the north shore of Georgian Bay and Superior.

Wasn't me, BTW, I don't think. I've a horrific memory, but I recall laughing at that line. I might've been the one to link it here, but definitely didn't come up with it myself.

*****

And thank you, Tancredi! I wonder how many mods have checked to make sure we're not the same person.

I drove by a road reconstruction project near my place today. I laughed when I saw they had a bunch of grass sod pallets waiting on the side of the road. I guess the snow this week caught them by surprise!

But this snow will likely melt eventually and they'll get a chance to lay it down, before the snow comes back for good.

Traffic moving well at 135kph towards a grey grim city floating above freezing, snow melting closer to the lake.

Shit !!! Canada is gigantic. There is a greater distance between St. John's and the far northwest of Canada than between St. John's and Rome :scappa:



P.S. My climate problem is not that of being too far south (in Japan and the United States there are cities at the same latitude as Palermo, and even further south, where it snows every year and temperatures drop below zero) but to be too close to the Sahara and west of a continent.

Ottawa is on the same latitude as Milan, and Toronto is slightly south of Florence.

.... and the two Canadian cities are located in the middle of a continent and therefore have a much colder and snowy climate than the two Italian cities.

St. John's is roughly the same as Nantes. We're just enough south of Paris that we can't choose it, but close enough that it's hard to find another city lol

Toronto is actually on the same latitude as places on the French Riviera like Nice, Cannes and St-Tropez.

Ottawa and Montreal are also on the same latitude as places very associated with warm southern France.

Even Quebec City is on the same level as Bordeaux.

As a result the sun is quite warm, strong and bright here starting in the second half of February and into the spring and summer.

The sun really melts the snow quite quickly at the end of the winter, through sublimation.
