First Signs of Winter

I posted twice about how warm our autumn have been. Over 20°C / 68°F on most days. It was welcomed, considering our spring came late, being cooler than normal until mid-June. Well, that came to an end last week. We have had 2°C / 35°F in early morning, and a maximum of 7°C / 45°F in the afternoon, the entire week. And now, going to Sherbrooke, I saw the first traces of snow, up there on the Orford peak. Remember, I showed you some colorful pictures of that place just two weeks ago. Here is the same scene you’ve seen, but with white traces everywhere.

Mont Orford again, now driving westbond. I'm pretty sure they haven't started shooting artificial snow yet, so this is totally natural snow.

Some regions in the north of Québec already got snow this week, but nothing that remained as the ground has not frozen yet. Even some people in the southern municipalities saw some flakes falling, but which melted on contact with the ground.

In fact, temperature being very close to zero this coming week, means that we will get either snow or rain. If it’s snow, it won’t remain, but could cause small problems on the roads, depending on the locations and the time of the day, since mostly nobody has their snow tires installed yet. Not that traces of snow are very dangerous, but some people just don’t know what it means to adapt their driving to the conditions.

    Ugh, every year in Ohio people forgot how to drive in snow. Then every spring they forgot how to drive in rain.

Any question? Have a tip to share? Have a different opinion?
