How's it going up there Tom? Are you staying warm enough?
It's a touch cold being as it's -10C or 15F. Furnace works good, though. A parka plus snow pants are good when using the snow blower to clear out the snow.
We are only 4 degrees North of your location, so, is it cold where you are?

Pretty much. Nights are still a little chilly for my liking.

A few things I remember from when I lived in Kenosha, WI (not all that far from your location and nearly the same latitude)... Cardinals are stunningly beautiful in person (don't have 'em out here), fire flies/lightning bugs are real (don't have those out here either), fall season it was absolutely beautiful with all the red and gold leaves everywhere, and the first time it hits 40ºF/4ºC in the fall season I feel like it's freezing outside. But, the first day in spring that it hit's 40ºf/4ºC... I'm in a T-shirt and shorts like it's summer time again. Interesting how well the body adapts to the different conditions and the same temp can feel so different contrasted to either higher or lower previous months temps.

I'm pretty sure you and I spell the of the word "Fall" the same way. But, I'm fairly certain Chris and Grant would prefer to spell it "Autumn" :cowboy:

Personally, I've always liked the word Autumn better.

Arrrrr language.

Nope, I’m pretty sure Chris and Grant would spell fall just the same as you did.
But, I’m fairly certain we would call the season after summer; autumn.
You did spell it correctly though.

Hehehe.

Actually, fall is quite descriptive of that season...

For whatever reason in my region we hardly ever use the term 'autumn'.

Here's what the all knowing had to say about that...
http://www.dailywritingtips.com/autumn-or-fall/ wrote:Changing colour to color can be blamed on American dictionary maker Noah Webster, but Fall for Autumn deserves another look.

Taking the vocabulary of Old English as a starting point, both Fall and Autumn as names for the season between summer and winter are late-comers.

Fall derives from an Old English verb, but it wasn’t used as a noun to designate the season until the 16th century. This use most likely developed from the Middle English expression “fall of the leaf.”

So what did Old English speakers call the season?

Harvest.

The need for a new word arose from a population shift that made cities more important than farmland. From being a word for the season, harvest came to refer only to the agricultural event that occurs in that season.

Autumn as a word for the season came into common usage about the same time as Fall did. The English who settled the eastern American seaboard brought the word Fall with them from the homeland. The English who stayed home eventually adopted the word Autumn.

Nowadays in England “Fall” sounds archaic and poetic, but in U.S. English “Autumn” has those connotations.
Interesting.

We have four seasons like the rest of you.....except that we call 'em

Hot
Hotter
Hot
Winter

We are in our 20 minute winter season right now. We actually had snow that has stayed on the ground for 3 days and temps as low as 8 degrees F. Rolling power outages for two days - fortunately, we've had constant power since late yesterday afternoon.....Tonight might be iffy, but we're hoping for the best.

Did the snow/ice take out the power lines?

No, it took out some of the power stations and all of the wind farms were down. Something about an extra cold weather option that they didn't use. Face it, this is a really weird event for us. We can get below freezing at night a handful of time during the winter, but for it to stay this low for this long hasn't happened in decades.
