Toronto in the winter is grey with crusty snowbanks and no Pissaladiere to be found anywhere.

I like your optimism. It's November and we're already speaking of spring.

There's also the hundreds of kilometres of the rest of highway 17 too. So many trees. So many rocks. So much 90km/h. It just doesn't seem to end.

I was actually thinking of 11 when I made the post.

I still haven't decided if everything being grey and snow-covered is better or worse than grey and dead-brown. Canada is not a pretty place in winter outside of the mountains.

At least there wasn't a sea of bright red brake lights providing colour for you. So there's that.

Why would I miss that if I can't put pineapple on it?

-8C in Moncton at 9 AM, going up to -1C later this afternoon. We will get a little light snow this evening, with perhaps 2 cm of accumulation, but this is along the leading edge of a warm front, and therefore will not stay. +4C and sunny tomorrow, and +14C the day after that.

Sunny, windy, and a cold -3 at 10:30am. Gonna be a chilly day before a warmup for the weekend. Back to seasonal tomorrow, and well above for Friday and Saturday.

I agree.

We can debate whether some other seasons (full summer, spring green-up, fall colours) are prettier, but certainly freshly-fallen snow is a lot prettier than a dead grey-black-brown leafless landscape without any snow.

Sunny, freezing. I'm hibernating today, but it looks so pretty out.

Snowing again this morning here.

This has been a pretty snowy late fall for us.

We had a tiny bit of snow twice in October that stayed on the ground for a few hours or even a day.

That's not unheard of but still fairly rare for us. Usually October only sees a few flakes in the air a couple of times.

And then snow like this in late November again isn't unheard of at all, but most years aren't like this.

It's still unclear to me if this snow will actually be around at Christmas. They are forecasting a day or two around +10 next week.

Though there is a really good chance that even if it melts, we'll get more snow to replace it by Dec. 25.

YYC Airport reached 8.7 yesterday, and melted away a decent amount of snow. My whole front yard was fully covered and now is about half covered now.

Not as warm today, around 0 for a high but chinook conditions appear to return tomorrow. A few double digits appear still appear around early next week.

Dusting of snow overnight. But the temps are rising through the weekend. Long range looks like it will be warm around 0 the next few weeks. (Just enough to make the hiking and biking trails icy).

Friday and Saturday are sun and cloud, Sunday is per sunshine.
