Good early morning from Kingston, Ontario. It's 2C out there, eventually dropping to 1C. They say we're supposed to get 2 to 4 cm of snow, which would be the most for the season so far. East and north of here, from Brockville to Ottawa and beyond, there's a snowfall warning.

I thought I'd try a change of pace. Instead of a photo, here's a painting from our collection, a watercolour by James Blomfield (1879 - 1951), who designed the coat of arms of Vancouver.

(So, who wants to take next week's posts, starting tomorrow?)

Have a great day!

Greetings all.

Mostly a pleasant day in the capital with temps of 10-23C (50-73F) and apparent temps of 6-18C (43-64F). The wind is getting a bit boring though. Lots of fungal spores blowing around making us sneeze and have itchy eyes - still, wouldn't want to be anywhere else, not for at least a few more months at any rate.

The pics are of Grey-headed Flying Foxes. There is a camp beside Lake Burley Griffin, about 350m from the CBD - been there for years.

I'll take on a week, but in a few weeks time. Have a terrific day/evening.

Good morning from the shore of Lake Michigan. Snow is gone except for a few piles in the shade where plows had pushed it. 30 F and fog this morning. Have a great day everyone.

Good morning from the western shore of lake Michigan.
Big plans for today: Deposit a check into my Banjo Business account, put the REAR tire, which has plenty of tread remaining, onto the front wheel, and the front onto the rear.
Front wheels do the driving, steering, and most braking, wear out faster.

Happy Saturday everyone. Very soggy here, but warm for January. If it was colder I'd be under well more than a foot of snow, so I guess I'm not complaining.

Good Morning from the Thawed Tundra. Going to be a good afternoon cheering the Pack with traditional snacks, beer, cheese, sausage, crackers. Going to be joining some friends that are in our 'bubble' and they have a large enough living room to keep social distancing. Overcast and foggy again!!!.
Keep safe, warm and Go Pack.

When it is really cold, I want snow. That wet air blows off Lake Ontario, hits the foothills of the Adirondacks, and starts "dumping snow". At one time I read that Watertown NY had more snowblowers per capita than any other community.

When I was young and lived in the Adirondacks, a friend and I made an Igloo from blocks of snow. I was surprised by how good an insulator it is.

As a 4th grade science project my son had to build a snow shelter and sit in it for 4 hours with a thermometer recording the temperature.  He and a friend built the shelter in the back yard with a vent hole at the bottom and a hole at the top.  The design was so that warm air would exit through the top and cool fresh air would enter through the bottom.  The entrance door was completely sealed.  We had a family radio walkie-talkie to stay in communication, and every now and then I made them cups of hot chocolate.  They stuck it out for the 4 hours and there was almost a 10 degree change in temperature just from their body temp and the occasional hot chocolate.  Snow is an excellent insulator.

At 3 AM the rain removed just about all of the snow here in this part of upstate NY . At 6 AM the temp had dropped & the ground was covered again being just on the edge of storm "Malcom" .
I don't stay up to watch the weather but to feed the wood stove .

Chris -- like the pics of the flying foxes !
