Man it has been raining here! Now I can see all the low spots on the place. Forcast for some snow maybe by the end of the week. Got down to 39 last night. Most of the Cows are hanging out inside the barn. At least I can burn my Paper Trash Pit today been waiting all summer for that! Mark H.

poured here really hard for a while last night too, then got a slight breeze out of the north that nearly blew everything over, seen a few of them white things floating around this moring and a white tinge to the back deck, ROCKYS got a white cap on them too ,though the ski hill out my front window has only a dusting, course the way its blowing here i figure it just might blow this all the way down to you willy, now if i can just get grover to keep trapping that stuff up his way .edmonton got over 6 inches yesterday, as usual im NOT ready for it.

We had gusting winds of 35-36 mph for over 12 hours here! The wind whipped up the rain onto the coverd porches and made the dogs go in the garage, poor puppys! Mark H.

Seems winter is settling in soon now. Right around the corner, already there for some. Been thinking about making me a burning pile myself. IF I get the front and the back yard done up today, maybe I can get one made this afternoon. I don't blame the cows one bit. Smart cows. :)

The Burn Pit is now gone! The wind helped a lot to make it burn hot. We keep the trash in plastic bags so it will be dry to burn during and after the rain which is the only time I will burn here. Mark H.

Still got my fingers crossed for some o' that indian summer, yet.......this is quite typical of the weather we get here...'spect when this front blows through, we may get a nice warm chinook, hopefully....been a few arches already this fall, hope that is harbringer of what we can expect for the rest of the winter.....for those of you who don't understand what I am talking about with the "chinooks", say it with an 's' instead of a 'c', for starters.....these are warm fronts that come over the mountains from the Pacific ocean, and push the cold to the east...temperatures can rise forty to fifty degrees F in a matter of hours......when one comes over the mountains, it looks like a long well defined strip of blue sky that keeps getting wider as it approaches, hence the term "arch"..... there is only about a two or three hundred mile stretch along the Rockys that partake in this phenomina....don't know if it extends down to Marks area or not.....usualy doesn't get any further east than the Alberta/Saskatchewan border. Hope I have shed more lite on an otherwise warm subject....have a gooder, R.E.L.

We get them! During fire season they are dangerouse to have blow in. Like the Santa Ana Winds in California. Mark H.

mark might get them ,hes only a few miles south of me as the crow flys, we do here although not as often as you do, course that pacific air comes from lala land , also mark is in the interior farther than us and is less likely influnced by the colder alberta air, but his elevation is his problem , im still waitin for EL NINO to kick in and i still think we,re in for a nice mild winter here in the best 5th on canada, you notice i didn,t count the frozen
