Another day of socked in with smoke. And on top of that, toxic air locally due to a pier catching on fire last night.

There was a glimmer of sun a few minutes ago...

Going to have to fire up the electric fireplace or furness soon...

We may get to that point over night this next weekend. I hate the weather cycle where you need heat at night and AC during the day. It just seems wasteful to me.

Our temp swings are about 8-10C, from the daytime highs of around 20C, to overnight lows of about 10C right now. A bit of a warm spot coming up this Wednesday, then it cools off again by the weekend. About 5C degrees cooler than normal. I did get our first weather frost warning on my phone, so we'll see.

Not sure if I mentioned, that our fall outlook, as we get towards the end of September, is supposed to be warmer than usual - thanks in whole or in part to el nina setting up nicely to push colder water away from NA, and then towards Europe and Africa. This allows for warmer waters from the equator to move north, moderating temps on the eastern part of Canada. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Western part of our country, well - it guess it depends on where you are. Accrete's area rarely gets the bitter cold we get, but I'm not sure where the dividing line of the colder, vs warmer area will set up out west. Central provinces are setting up for more snow and colder than normal.

Have I mentioned how much I like el nina?

Agreed, Accrete is spoiled and doesn't know what bad weather is. That area is a fluke of the natural order.

Since I fear you will be stuck at home all winter I hope el nina makes nice for you. I haven't checked tp see what our long range is for the winter.

Our local news fall weather model looks a bit different than the Weather Network's model. We are in the "above normal" temps, but are told to moderate our expectations as it's not going to be anywhere near record warmth. It does, however, look like golf may be extended into October with some semblance of "comfort". Comfort, in that hoodies and warm gloves not necessary. :lol:

We are getting that hazy high cloudy/smoke, which actually began yesterday. Its' not cloudy, it's kind of a hazy sunshine. I'll take this over clouds and rain.

Our first reasonably sunny day for a while. I guess the wind drove the crap north.

We are still socked in with smoke but looking brighter now. It rained yesterday and last night so guess that helped.

Not sure what going to do today.

Flights to nowhere

For those missing the airport experience Singapore Airlines is considering flights to nowhere. You take off, fly around for a bit and return to to the same airport.

Why in the H*** would anyone want to do that?

Sorta like a Black Mirror episode.

There is such a Deja vu experience when you debark.
