I love Canadian Winters

Just sitting here on a Friday night, nice glass of red in hand and a snowfall warning has been issued for up to 6 inches of snow by this time tomorrow. I've lived here 8 years now, originally born and raised in Kent, and its the certainty of snow in the winter that just makes me smile. Although the fun of will it/wont it snow in England was good there's nothing like getting a snowstorm knowing its not going to be marginal as temperatures are going to drop to minus 20oC. The joys of being conne

Lomond Snowstorm's (epic novel) Winter Forecast 2013/14

Well here we are again folks, that special time of year when the anticipation of Christmas is matched only by the joy of the now annual tradition of the LomondSnowstorm winter forecast. Last winter promised much and delivered some, although on the ground it was generally more of a slushy hinterland than a winter wonderland. So can we continue the trend of generally below average winters which have developed in tandem with a more southerly tracking jet, or will the glorious summer of 2013 usher i

Preparing for Winter

As I sit here typing, looking at the amazing, snow capped Canadian Rocky Mountains, the sun is streaming through the window, another day of blue skies, warm breezes and temperatures in the mid teens. Quite remarkable for the time of year. I think this is the first time since being here in 9 years that we have not had snow in October, or September or August or July for that matter. It is quite surreal knowing that I can do work in the yard in a t shirt when, at any time, the high pressure can
