Bad hurricane season/ NOT

I remember the forcast for this year was that it was going to be a bad hurricane season.Thankfully,this has not come to pass.

It seems to me the weather is becomming a little stranger every year.For example,in my area of Nova Scotia,we have just finished a week of temperatures in the 60's and even hitting 70 yesterday.

I can never remember it being this warm in this area this late in the year.I have flowers coming up in my garden...for now.

Has anyone else experienced weather that is not the norm for your area?

Where?

Mike,

Where in Nova Scotia are you located?

I used to pull into Halifax every year on the U.S. Coast Guard icebreaker NORTHWIND 1986-1990. Halifax (and Portsmouth across the harbor) were great places. I loved the fort and the folks as the SCotia Legion (equivilent to the American Legion veteran halls) treated us really nice. There was a Canadian icebreaker that was the same class ship as ours.

Abnormal Weather

Mike,

In the 2nd week of November we had lots of freezing rain in Manitoba which continues to make the secondary roads very trecherous. The highways are good now as the Province brought out the salt trucks. Lots of damage to trees and the hydro crews were kept busy rolling ice off the lines.
We always thought that by Halloween night we would have our first snow fall with temperatures dropping below freezing with winter would stay for 6 months.

Talked to our family in Goose Bay as well as St. Johns today and there is no snow either place. Strange.

Bob

The Northern Florida Gulf coast did not have a hurricane this year. I guess that's unusual.

It is supposed to be 38 degrees here tomorrow night. This is very unusual for us, and if it comes to pass, will set a new record low for the month of November. Normal low is around 60-65. Brrrr!

It is 33 here now at 7:05 AM. Been a very dry year here. We are about 14" below normal in rainfall. The rainfall a hurricane brings would be most helpful now, as the rivers are really low this fall. Of course the increase in home owners insurance a hurricane brings would not be welcome Feel sorry for those with $6000++ insurance premiums on the coast.

The weather forecast for this week calls for temps in the upper fifties! My mums are still blooming, the daisies think it is spring again, and I am still mowing my lawn.

Believe me, after the last several years of feeling like I have a hurricane target painted on my house, I will gladly put up with a few days of cold weather, if it means I don't have to evacuate for yet another hurricane.

Hurricanes on the East coast and the Gulf,tornados in the midwest,the threat of mudslides,wildfires and earthquakes on the West coast.I agree,a little cold weather is nothing more than an inconvience.

I see you live in Cape Fear,is there a community called Tranquil Cove in your area?

That must be where Cape Fear residents go after they retire.

No, we move North of the Mason-Dixon line, and drive slow in the fast lane...
