What the heck is going on?

We have gale force NW winds, and since 8am, it's been snowing on and

off, so hard at times you can't see 100yrds.

Tues. Wed. Thurs. it was in the area of 25*c (77*F)

 

I've never seen this before.

Seems like all of North America is screwed up on the weather, don't even know how to dress from one day to the next.

I've seen this kind of cold spell before, but not this all day snow event, at this time

of year. On the bright side, it may kill off the black flies.

Its getting cold in the southern states also. We are looking at 40*F tonight which is unreal for this time of year. We should be at a low of 60*F

How far north is Northern Ontario?I didn't know you had yards up there. When I was a kid I flew up north of Red Lake. All I saw was water.

Mother Nature is fickle.  We have frost warnings for tonight. A high of 64* tomorrow. A high of 83* on Tuesday with a low of  65*.   And by Thursday it's supposed to cool off again.   I learned to dress in layers a long time ago.  Rick

3 hrs north of Toronto, is northern Ontario.

Up here, we don't have to get our vehicles emission tested, and the roads

never get fixed.

Also, our yards don't have gopher holes in them, because they won't come this far north. :D

I just came in from the shop and turned the thermostat up a degree or 2, getting a little chilly,it was in the 80's here just a few days ago and tonight it's supposed to hit 35! You definitely dress in layers around here with this crazy weather I've been heading to work in the morning in a coat and coming home in a t-shirt. :thumbs:

Got a bit of frost last night, but it was 47 by the time I got up this morning. So I do not think it did any damage.
Mowed my lawn yesterday for the first time this year. Filled my 5X8 Trailer with clippings. That is what happens when it rains every day for two weeks straightr.
