Well, in this part of Canada, nothing weather related is freakish I suppose. And, we did have one back in 2014 on September 8, so not even as early as that one. It plays havoc with the trees, of course, with plenty of broken branches due to all the leaves still being present on most trees.
The past few days of continuous snowfall has left us with 11 inches at our house in the south of the city.... the sprinkler guys emailed to say they would be waiting a few days to come to blow out the underground sprinklers... gee, ya think? hahaha... I wrote back to say I wasn't digging out anything for them, so they better wait at least several days. By the weekend it is supposed to get back to +16C ....we'll see if it gets that good.
This was earlier ..
And, this...... is the freaky bit ......what the heck is that? a snow goblin??
From a distance and on the camera view screen it sort of looked like a dog's head...but up close?
