It's getting near that time to break out the thermal Draws and start dressing like Nanook of the North, I love the Cold but I hate being Cold, I think I got Winter well and Truly Covered.:cool:

We're waiting for some winter to hit. It was 92° yesterday and we haven't had any measurable rain since June. I'm sure I'll be complaining when winter really hits but a little fall weather would be nice.

I haven't seen 92* in about 4 months In the UK, back home that was the norm, this past week I have seen Heavy Rain and Hail and Thunder and Lightning and mild Sunny days with it dropping down to 46/48* at night, I'm seeing all 4 seasons in one day, Weather has gone nutz,

I just ordered 8 sets of thermal Tops and Draws before they put the price up, I got enough Cold weather gear to get me though any thing Winter has to offer.

Maybe I spoke too soon, I went to the shops this evening and what I thought was light rain when I looked up under the street lighting turned out to be Snow, Snow in the first week of October is not normal weather over here, In fact it's not normal to see it until January as a rule,

I think we might be in for a stinker of a winter this year, Hope So, Just like the one back in 62/63.

We have winter all over Canada. It is never unusual to have snow on or before our Thanksgiving (this weekend). This is a picture from my Moose hunt at the camp near Gogama in 2006. I was wearing a t shirt the day before. I still hopped into the canoe and paddled to the pothole lake 1/2 km up river. IM000028.JPG
This is what it looked like a couple of days before...IMG_0137 (Medium).JPG

Nice Pics, 👍

When I was in my teens I use to go canoeing every winter in the snow, I didn't need an excuse to go 20/25 miles in a day, I loved it.

I'll second that. 3 hours south of me in Calgary last week they had 25 cm fall already. More snow fell earlier this week I believe. So far, no snow here yet, just chilly temps....

Knock on wood.
I would love to go to Canada In Winter, I just been watching all the Canadian News footage of the Snow storms from back in January to March this year, Incredible weather, It's been a life long ambition but hopefully I will get the chance within now and next year.
