Speaking of local recent weather and what the locals do when things get too deep to walk in it:

I was about to say it is cold... and then had to look at snow pics.

 

  it's around 45` here. Will get to low 80's. Already warming... sun is up.  Because I live in a cold air drainage, we get a draft in the morning and evening when the air settles/moves. Not bad in the PM... on cool AMs, it is like someone opening the refrigerator door.

68f and humidity 86. Raining steady as we speak. Only one day of rain before today, in like a month and a half. Longest dry spell I can recall  up to the rain earlier in the week. Getting down into the 30s tonight for the first time. Been very warm.

@Wolfbane your deck looks like mine!  Already tired of the pre-winter snow.  We are slowly crawling out of the negatives and might get a week of 10 to 13 C.  I need it to all melt and dry up so I can clean up the gardens and do final outside work.  Then the winter projects, leading to our "secret santa" Christmas gifts.  I have some work to do, trying to find some "cheap" speakers locally as we set a budget for the gifts.  Dang hard to get good Klipsch bookshelf speakers for $100 Cdn.  I'm wearing out Kijiji searching.

I feel like I should be sending Klipsch speakers over the border every time my inlaws come to visit from Winnipeg.  I could make a killing :D

Welllll, the tomato plants are now history as are the impatiens in the front flower box.  Front coming thru and then it's looks like mother nature is gonna take her first dump of Fall.  Rain & 58 for a high tomorrow w/overnite temps hitting 35.  I think the party is over.  Almost time to rake/blow/sweep all the neighbors leaves.  They're all too busy to do their own so they just let them blow over to me.  Think I might go on strike this year but then I'd be buried and have NO grass to mow next year.  I could be onto something...  :)

Should have posted a pic of the guy across the street. 9, yes 9 huge oaks about 35+ feet high.  Talk about a mess?  I have one old honey locus tree with very small leaves that disintegrate quickly in my yard and just had the boys trim it last year.  The dude across the street?  Ummm, NEVAH!  UGH!

During the change of seasons here you normally run the heater in your car on the way to work and the ac on the way home.  Today will be just the opposite.  Just during the lunch hour it felt like it dropped 10 degrees and should drop another 10 by the time I go home.  90's earlier in the week and we'll have 50's by tomorrow morning.

I shoveled all the snow from last week off my entire lawn into the city sewer last Friday so I could gather up all the poplar leaves and cut the grass in preparation for aeration and winter fertilizer preparation on Saturday. Neighbors thought I lost my mind, but glad I did given this weeks snow. I'm heading south soon and don't want to find myself snowed out from winter prep this year. That happened last year. Now I just have to wait until just after the full moon to plant my garlic for next year. It'll be fairly dark out if cloudy so no one should notice until they see the straw cover in place the next day.

 

Snowblower annual maintenance scheduled for this afternoon... when it warms up some more.

Winterpeg is probably not the best place to make a killing. However, if you go downtown there late at night you might get to witness a killing. Usually a knife is involved in the land of no property rights or proper Constitution. 🔪

ain't easy with $100USD, either

I've been looking.  Best I've seen is a pair of RB-61 II with a small sub [Klipsch] for $200 and I would need to drive 150 miles [one way] to fetch them.

So, I have given brother-in-law all of his audio gear as he has no money for it but loves it.  He's using my hand-me-downs that are 4 generations old and unfortunately his "mains" are 2 old Bose (I know...) diminutive surround speakers. I got him for secret santa.  I've been looking (actually for 2 years now) and missed 2 chances for Heresy at $50 Cdn!  Ugh!  And with winter (weather is the theme of the thread?), I don't want to drive 4 hours north to Edmonton if there's a set up there (RB5s at a pawn shop but way over budget).  Feels like I'm going to have to go non-Klipsch but would like to at least be in the family and close to his center channel and sub that are Klipsch.  I am fine with fixing anything with speakers so even if I can find some that are broke, I'd fix them up.  Oh well, onwards and upwards.  Maybe I should post a wanted add in Kijiji?

Four hour drives to a Texan are little day trips.  Your brother in law is clearly not worth your effort.
