It is a cooler morning in October... actually about the proper weather it should be for this time of year. But the weather has be so awesome lately. I have no doubt that there will be a lot of snow this season... so... I bought a snow blower...

Now I do not want the snow to come early, but this is an awesome machine

It is so awesomely warm...

Stayed out last night with friends and a fire

I do need to get some raking in.

So my schedule changed and I have a three day weekend now... and that means no more work on Sunday

It also means that any holiday weekends become long weekends...

This shot is so fantastic

We lost a very wonderful person today. Good Downie from the Tragically Hip... He was a Champion for Canada and Indigenous rights.

Some of you might not have heard of him or his band and I highly recommend you give them a listen - The Album Fully Completely is so amazing.

I saw them in 1985 is a small bar on Toronto.

And I got to

Hurricane Ophelia, it wasn't too bad in the end, I've not heard of any major damage or deaths happened so we were lucky. We had a red sun on Monday apparently from the hurricane blowing sand from the Sahara, quite a sight.

That is good to hear, and I bet a red sun would be a wonder to see 

So I spent my morning working on the show I am building and part of my afternoon getting the deck furniture tucked away for the winter.

We had frost here one day earlier this month...then it warmed up for a bit, and then it shot right back down, haha.  I think we're done with warm weather here, though.
littlejohn22:
well @camy I hope you can come up here soon and experience all that we do here with snow, but after a while it is like the heat... and you get bored of it... that is why we love the change of seasons. It is fall here now and the trees are almost all the colours of the rainbow. @wizard0 we are waiting till the last moment to turn on the heat. 

It was a long 16 hour drive to see my mom in Guelph but it was so worth it. I also picked up 2 growlers of different brews of fine ale and several cans of new Ontario beers.

We taught her how to play Ticket to Ride... where she kept calling the Black Cars in the game "Black Guys" she had lines like..." I'll...
