First Snow

Oct 10 snow It’s definitely the last of fall when there’s snow that sticks. However, this doesn’t even come close to reaching the record of 24.1cm on this same October day in 1945 and there’s still a few warmer days to come.

October has seen as high as 30°C in 1980 and as low as -23°C in 1984 but so far we’re close to the average of a little over 6 degrees. Nevertheless, mornings are cold and Coalmont chimneys are showing how much we all agree about that. §
