That would have my back feeling a mite tender!

Today we put fresh oil and gas in our snowblower and fired it up for the first time this fall. (Our driveway is way too big to shovel)
Sorry about the back noob. Ya just gotta love Snowblowers... I used ours to clean up part of the driveway...the rest I had to do by hand.

Interesting how this Globe of ours works, I mean geographically and climatically. Check this map out:

Winnipeg, Utsjoki, Leipzig

A is your Winnipeg, B where I'm coming from, Utsjoki in Finnish Lapland, and C Leipzig where I live now.

I can understand winter has already arrived in Utsjoki, night temperatures between -6°C and -13°C (21°F to 8°F) and snow enough to give to some tropical countries, as we say back home.

But Winnipeg and Leipzig are approximately at the same level. You had to showel snow today, we had a beautiful fall day with temperatures around 10°C (50°F)

Earth is interesting!

Very interesting! Big difference in temps. We had a very descent day today temp wise but it is now 11:18pm Central Time and the temp is now -16c (-16 Celsius = 3.2 Fahrenheit for our US friends) and it is supposed to get colder. The temp is not bad...it's the Wind Chill that is the killer.

If you take a look at that map again you'll see how much more north Utsjoki in Finnish Lapland is, compared to Winnipeg. The Gulf Stream is very powerful phenomen, only thing that can explain this. In Scandinavia we get the benefits of that, it seems it really warms especially our winters.

I wish that "Gulf Stream" would hit Winterpeg (what Winnipeg sometimes is called). It would be nice...

I can still remember October 2006. We were in Finland, preparing our holiday cottage there for winter. A beautiful fall, almost more like the end of summer, as this pic showing me coming from sauna shows:

Then, only a few days later:

Today [5]-28102006329.jpg

And then it really began, so fast it was incredible to see:

Today [5]-31102006345.jpg Today [5]-31102006347.jpg

All pics within a week, same place. Two last pictures within 6 hours.

its the same for us here in Cornwall (gulf stream)
we rarely see snow in fact i think we have only had about ten days snow in as many years, well maybe fourteen days
i so miss the snow as i grew up in Scotland and recall playing in the snow and sledging etc.
heres hoping that we'll see some again this year, no need for snow blowers here although because we have such sparse showing of snow when it does snow cornwall comes to a standstill. the schools close also , i think it is more to do with letting the kids enjoy the snow as it could be years until they see it again.we did have some last year and the year before it was four years before that and a further six years before that, we have palm trees and banana trees down here in Cornwall

I'll be having a couple of days in Saariselkä next month, hopefully it will be at least like the last picture.

What are you doing in Finland, if I may ask? And yes, it's already almost like that there now.
