The radio said it was that foggy this morning the southern fairies could not fly.
That probably means visibility was down to 1/2 a mile

I suppose you will be cheering for the Lions ... Me, I'm a Roughrider fan; but as they didn't show up to play this season, I will be a temporary Blue Bomber fan for the Grey Cup game ... it's a Prairie thing

Re: weather??

And today we are having our first snowfall But if the long range forecast is correct, it will be above normal temps until my birthday. The geese have been hanging around in their thousands ... still even have swans on the lake ...

Nah ... We're Canadians We know we are going to have winter; so most folks get out and enjoy it ... kids love it ... And we have hockey, skating, curling, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, and for those adventurous souls with less brittle bodies than mine, skiing, snowboarding. We even have something in K'town called Febfest, where we get out and enjoy the worst of the winter.

Re: weather??

Feb fest looks great fun - enjoy a skate myself but need knee pads on - we have an outdoor rink in one of the main squares in Cremona in December.

Crown Royal is a favourite of my husbands after visiting the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto several times -that and morning coffees with Baileys -keeps the cold at bay!

If we had real winter here I would enjoy it too but the slightest bit of snow seems to completely throw most people...

They are really used to snow over in Canada and are experts at dealing with and living with it.
We are near the Alps here too so usually get snow -everyone has to have snow-tyres fitted from Nov -March here or have chains for the tyres. You get a fine if they stop you and you aren't kitted out.
With the UK usually having milder winters it does seem to create havoc when you get a decent snow-fall -i remember all those people stranded on a M'way in Scotland last year....

Mobertol, looks lovely, with walks like that I wouldn't think you miss England too much.
