Just a disaster this morning. Cars and buses broken down.
Way too many cars on the road.

It was wasn't it? With highs around 16°C it was about average for this time of the year. Funny that a simply average fall day is considered beautiful this year.

With everything always seeming to average out I'm wondering if we're still paying for that incredible January we had or if we're going to have an amazing November/December? That said, I don't know if +10 in January and November is a fair trade for a generally crappy spring, summer and fall.

Aside from being a little slower than usual during the morning rush,SB Deerfoot was moving okay. NB Deerfoot looked packed though.

I hate that we're constantly below average in temperature right now. I know this is Calgary, and weather swings wilder than the Chicken on the Way basement, but I still absolutely hate it.

Why can't we be ABOVE average for prolonged periods of time? Why is always below now it seems?

Just got downtown from Aspen area. Roads were totally fine outside the hill on 85th heading north to Bow and the 2 idiots in minivans who couldn't make it up it...

I was looking at the road conditions cameras on 511 and AMA, looks like the dead of January around Calgary! Drive safe!

We seem to be in a bad winter cycle. Last February broke the all-time record for coldest ever breaking 0 degrees for a single hour and the year before I believe it was the record for most snow. Seems to me at least like we haven't been getting the chinooks like we used to in the winter as it's been more prolonged cold weather. Certainly off to a pretty bad start this year.

February suckage last year was unreal but the months before and after were downright nice if I recall correctly. Nov through Dec were awesome and I think as soon as February was over, it was awesome again.

Totally agree on the Chinooks during the winter but think I've seen 2 arches already this year?

Yeah if I recall correctly up until late January people were calling it the best winter in years. Then February sucked but the rest wasn't bad.

Good point about Chinooks though

I've noticed that too... we definitely haven't been getting as many Chinooks the last couple years. I wonder why that is.

Just ran out for a coffee.

I was about to get annoyed then I checked my pictures from last year. This is Oct 2 last year

Spoiler!


Guess time flies by and it is about that time of year. You pretty much have to consider the start of winter to be Thanksgiving here, haha.

We'll still get a good thaw though. I'll predict +10 thew first week of November

Annual data for 25 years in Calgary:

https://calgary.weatherstats.ca/char...re-yearly.html

Warmest mean temperatures were generally in 2015-2018. Coldest mean records were 1995-1997.


1996 must have sucked - average mean temperature was 1.8 C. In 2015 and 2016 it was 6.3 C.

F this. Again and again and again.

Thanksgiving is a good rule of thumb so this isn't a bad time to do it
