I hadn't stopped to think of it 'til now, but there's been nearly constant rain or drizzle all day here in southeast Michigan, so it wouldn't surprise me to learn we've rescheduled, too.

Of course, Michigan was the "Water Winter Wonderland" when I was growing up (and dinosaurs walked the Earth), so we might decide to tough it out and let the kids catch cold and die if they must.

There was some debate whether Ottawa was going to follow Montreal's lead, but the folks at city hall decided against postponing Halloween this year. Even though it's been raining all day and as of this post is still raining.

That doesn't mean anybody showed up at my door, mind you. (Looks at all the Hershey fun-size chocolates that'll be going to work tomorrow.)

No-fun-size candy bars? For shame. No wonder no one bothered braving the elements just for that! This is a three-bowl house - one real candy bar (choice of nuts or no nuts at least until one runs out) and a handful each of mint and fruit-flavors hard candy.

This is not really weather per se, but still a geoscience so why not.  The last couple of nights I've been woken up by small earthquakes.  The cluster has in the range of 2.5-3.6, so nothing really big or dangerous, just enough to feel like somebody's shaking/kicked your bed.  But I'm only a couple of kilometers away from the epicenters -- and only ten or so kilometers from the hypocenter, so it's still a bit of a jolt.

It's actually kinda funny looking at the map, one of the epicenters is in the dead center of downtown, another is at the end of the pier, and one is in the middle of my old middle school.  Oh, and one at a taco shop.  Would be less funny if anyone got injured, but now it's just at annoyance level.

Yeah, tired of 50-60F days... diving to the 30s at night... and the occasional day of snow and sub 30F for the high. All around weather whiplash.

it was 23 degrees at my house at 6am this morning. I LIVE IN F-ING FLORIDA

it didn't get out of the 50's today as a high. Tonight is going to be in the forties, but it's supposed to get colder next week

It only got down to 32 here in San Antonio....

...But what really blew chunks was that it didn't get much warmer after the sun came up.

Keep in mind, just before the cold front hit we'd been getting highs in the 70's.

Oh, and there was the possibility of freakin' SNOW in the forecast. WE HAD SNOW JUST TWO YEARS AGO DAMMIT.

Temperatures in the Netherlands: 0-2 degrees low/at night, 6-9 degrees high/during the day, all in Celsius. With a definite chance of rain and high humidity really sucking the warmth out of you.

Not sure how that translates to Fahrenheit, I think from 30's to 50's?

About that, yeah. You can just type "(n) degrees C in F" without quotes into google and it'll convert for you, or the other way around, BTW. And at least some of the time if you put in something like "23.7m in real numbers you commie" it'll spit out an answer in US customary units, though I'm pretty sure it wasn't actually meters I was looking at.

This year has been very sewed up to say the least. I am in Wisconsin and in April we got two snow falls. The funny one was the Friday it was in the 60;s and sunny. I do photography at a dirt track here and Friday night that had practice at the track, They cancelled the races on Sat night because of lots of snow the next day. We have also got lots of rain this year and not sure how many nights where called off for rain even a couple of days before a race.
Halloween we had 3 inch's of snow on the ground and cold. Then we have broke all kinds of cold records this week in southern Wisconsin.

For the Boston area we have snow forecast starting Sunday (12/1) afternoon and continuing to Tuesday (12/3) morning. This will be our first of the season and may be 9" to 15" total accumulation.

We had a little south of there in the Bridgewater/Brockton area a week or so ago, but only enough to track a cat and obviously it didn't stick around. And people still persist in denying that climate change is happening, somehow.

*Sigh*  So, between 11/27 and 12/04 it has rained just about every...  no.  While bunched up, the effect is 4 out of the last 8(ish days)  OH AND YOU EAST COASTERS STOP LAUGHING ALREADY.  *Deep Breath*

Yes.  I know Los Angeles, CA (ie the greater metropolitan area) has such moderate weather the rest of you laugh at us...  but at the moment, those of you who actually have do deal with things like snow, and black ice and other real (expletives deleted) over and above a surplus of precipitation?  right.  Okay what I am dealing with, even if only a shadow of what every one else has to, is trying enough to make me appreciate what those who life in a more severe climate than Los Angeles have to put up with EVERY BLOODY YEAR

ummm... does that make sense to *ANY*one other than me?

<start rant>There is no such thing as climate change. <end rant>

Here let me put the fire on for you poor northern hemisphere folks going through winter atm...

Ok, so that map is a tad out of date... the current map is here At time of posting. 2 out of control fires are about 50 kms away. Fun times.

Today's weather... 40 C with no prospect of rain until at least February. Summer is going to be a scorcher.
