This Week in the Weather

We seem to be on the fast track to some seasonal changes in our weather this week.

We started off with a couple of warm, sunny days.
Yesterday, Dom and I spent a while at a neighbourhood kiddie park. It seemed a bit chilly but Dom had a great time on the equipment and even took off his shoes and socks to play in the sand.

Today it is supposed to be 21 above Celsius. It seems rather cloudy but their are periods of sunshine. There is also wind! 54km to 74km winds. Kat and I have not ventured out for our walk. I am a bit concerned that one or both of us might get blown away (or blown over).

The exciting part is that starting tomorrow the mercury is supposed to drop out of the thermometer and by Sunday we should have one to two FEET of snow. With strong winds, they are also warning of white-out conditions across southern Saskatchewan.

Whoo Hoo!

To be honest, I have really been looking forward to snow this year. I will not have to go out and drive through it, in pitch dark, on my way to work. The fresh new snow will cover up the endless greige of autumn in Saskatchewan. Plus, and this is a big plus, I will be home so will have a chance to shovel it before Dan gets to it! I just hope I will be able to. Being out in the cold is hard on my lungs at the best of time and these last few weeks haven’t been the best of times, where my lungs are concerned. I can only take it slow and hope for the best. ⛄

Hope your weather is good and your spirits are high!

Just Like That!

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the neighbourhood. Today – not so much. It is cold, windy and looking to rain later. We could use the rain. The cold and wind we could definitely do without.

Southern Saskatchewan has a tendency to be windy, but I do not remember winds like this. It goes on for days (and nights!) at a time. I left our bedroom window open last night and felt like I was going to get blown out of bed this morning. I went out and set our hanging planters on the ground again.  The plants in them just take too much of a beating when the wind is gusting in the 70k range.

It might be a good day to give Kat a bath. She is filthy and she does not look like she is too motivated to go for a walk any time soon.

Have a great day! I hope wherever you are, your weather is being kind to you today.
