Wow! It was 23 deg and sunny in Halifax yesterday. More or less the same forecast to today.

Is that in Celsius or Fahrenheit or are you using some alt temperature scale?

Like how much you can tilt a jar of maple syrup without spilling anything.

Snowing is a little strong for a choice of words, flurries is more accurate, the white stuff won't be permanent till November at the earliest, so I still have a few weeks of ok weather.

Thanks for posting those pics Phillip, I hate you ok, maybe I'm just a wee bit jealous.

I find it really interesting to see the diversity of climates all the ALT-guys live in, but why aren't there any pictures in this thread?


Last May in the Sierra Nevada:



Today in Sacramento the temperature is supposed to cool down to the mid-90s.

Fahrenheit to Celsius is (F-32)/1.8, right? so 92 would be 60/1.8 = 33C wow!
Here its 16C which is equal to 61F.

On my way back to Calgary from Hinton yesterday I went the Jasper-Banff Highway and made a few stops photographing. They even brought out a snowplow to clear the roads in the Columbia Icefields area.

It was a lot of fun photographing Athabasca Falls as the snow was coming down. Ironically the foriegn tourists just loved it.

It was 85 yesterday here in North Dakota and today the weathermen are predicting up to 6 inches of snow! Nice to see others are going through the same changes. Certainly not ready for Winter yet!

Depends on the weather.

Looking through my Lightroom catalog from the previous winter I realized that the first photos with some snow in them was from January 1st. Now that's late.

Here is one of them. Zeiss ZE 85 Planar

It's supposed to get down to 34 tonight in the Denver metro area, with a chance of snow (that won't stick, since our high was 80 today). How about down there?

I second this - it was a disgusting winter in terms of weather as the usual pattern simply disappeared and we had days that just seemed like a dirty window with mid-Spring weather for weeks on end.

Then this oppressive stinky heat and freaky high humidity has just lingered and lingered and lingered. I highly anticipate the end of this screwy meteorological year. It's like lower atmosphere in Southern California just stalled and got stuck in a non-raining but high humidity rut. Monday was the dry heat but I think it hit about 110 on the sidewalk, on 7th street in DTLA.

Gaaah, enough already!

'Looking through my Lightroom catalog from the previous winter I realized that the first photos with some snow in them was from January 1st. Now that's late.'

And here I was thinking you folks were snowed in six months of the year, like in David Fincher's remake of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. We are working up courage for Ladakh in January, -20C nights are the norm.

Hey, it's almost Santa Ana time, so you got those going for you.

Oh, and I saw on the History Channel tonight that the Pacific tectonic plate is shrinking faster than any other plate. So, ATMWW, eventually SoCal and Mexico will merge with Australia (Fuji and New Zealand be warned- this does not end well for you). The fun just never stops in LA.

That's the truth - in L.A. the carousel is always spinning and the music is always playing.
Though oftentimes they aren't exactly synchronized...

You should all move to Berlin, the weather here is variable enough to stay interesting, i.e. shorts weather in the summer and snow in the winter, but not crazy extreme We could have some great alt meet-ups.


I like what little I've seen of Germany so far, but I work in IT and it appears I would need about three Ph.Ds to get a job there



Eh, not here in Munich! We're swimming with IT and other jobs... even for people with a BA/BS. And on a clear day we get views of the Alps.
