Chris' Corner: First Snow of Winter 2011-2012

First Snow of Winter 2011-2012

November 17th, 2011 - Snow fell about an hour north of us - in areas off Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, but alas, none in Alliston =(

We were driving back from an Office Meeting in Barrie when we drove through this:
First Snow
Our first snow!  ... OK, it was not accumulating on the ground, but you know it is just a matter of time...

Further north, this is what they woke up to:


If you haven't thought about it, now is the time to prepare your car for winter

Chris yes it's time to get ready for winter! In Washington we have several ski areas opening on the 18th this is a real teaser, typically we don't open until Thanksgiving if we're lucky.

Chris,

Snow has now hit Mississauga. Hopefully it will warm up and melt.

HI Chris,

We don't actually know what that white stuff is that you are referring to, but it that is snow, we don't want any of it either....

Great advice to be prepared and get both the home, the car and the family ready for the un-avoidable......(at least in your part of the world) ;o)

Hi Chris - We had a few snowflakes falling yesterday but it melted immediately.  I had called someone in Iqaluit, NU (which is on Baffin Island) yesterday.  I never thought of asking her how the weather was when I called.

Al and Peggy, even I learn my lesson when hit hard enough ;-)

Wow Marc, I do not know anyone that far north... lucky people ;-)

I'm sure they would not be impressed by this post =)

We had a few flakes as well. It wasn't anything serious Chris, but it did serve as a bit of a wake-up call. It's only a matter of time. My car is good to go.

Chris, I cannot believe we beat you for the earliest snowfall. We had it already in October. I do not really like snow, but when it comes, it comes and we deal with it. Have a great day and weekend.

Hello Chris,

We don't get much snow if any here. Looks like the wind was really blowing in the first shot.

Then "welcome to winter sign" was up and in full force in the second shot.

I did have my truck serviced this week. It do'es get really cold here. But very little snow for the winter.

Have a great weekend in Canada my good friend. Keep warm eh.

All my best, Clint McKie
