Summer Snow

I don't know if you all follow the weather news up here in Canada but... today is a balmy summer day where I am...

The basil is growing happily...

The fuchsia is putting forth more blossoms... but...

In my former city... over the mountains in flat-land... they do not have balmy skies...

In fact, it's quite a mess!!

And the inhabitants are beary, beary upset!!
From Twitter
It appears they have had a summer snowstorm... power is out to tens of thousands. Trees, with all their summer foliage, are breaking and... well... it's a mess!!

I am glad I live where I do. I don't think even a little bear could handle snow in September... but now you also know why I wore my winter outfit there all the time. You never know when you'll get snow!

    2. Can you imagine?? Snow in Jerry's garden??? I'm sure he's keeping an eye on those weather reports! But maybe it's a case of "Only in Canada, you say?"

    3. 28 degrees last night in Northern Minnesota, brrr, luckily it's not that cold where we live. Jerry is really not happy.

  3. I finally understand why you always wore your green coat in all of your old posts. I always thought it was because that's the only outfit you had....how silly of me.

    1. Err... well... actually... that might have been part of it too! Mama always told me it could snow "any day" (even in June or July) so she always made sure I had my hat and snow pants on... but now I think it was because she had no other clothes for me to wear...

  4. I'm sooooo not ready for that four letter "S" word!!!! I thought about you when I saw the grumpy Snowmen on our news yesterday. We will have temps in the 40's here on Friday thanks to that same system. Brrrrrr! I have a feeling this Winter is going to show up early and stay late.

    1. Brrr... better dig out your sweaters and fluffy coats! It's hard to believe the summer is almost over... why does time go so fast in the summer?
