With colder then usual weather getting off to an early start.
We've had two frost warnings this week with night time temps hitting 32F or 0C
Tonight we have our second frost warning- with rain or wet snow depending on how cold it gets. Yes, I said snow. We are below our so called seasonal norms or averages.
I reside in an area of Canada, atop the escarpment, that should have some buffering from this early cold because the two great lakes, Erie and Ontario, both warm over the summer and generally moderate the climate in this area.

I've said before and I'll say it again the trend is colder where I reside.
We garden, forage etc., and notice the later garden starts, from say 20 years ago.
Spring comes later and later. Summer is short. Then it gets too cold too soon.
This is what I've observed over an extended time period.

btw: I love this area. It's Beautiful.
Great for hiking and biking. Lots of open spaces and beautiful places and did I mention wineries?
If not? Wineries!

Of course Niagara Falls- and all kinds of other waterfalls, big and small, left from the retreat of ice and the melt waters. Did I say ice? Why yes I did. Ice and lots of it, covered this part of Canada. Then it warmed and the ice retreated and melted. (no "big oil" assistance. I expect for what ever reason the sun warmed the earth more then it had been- makes sense)
Carving the land and leaving behind so much beauty- That's our planet!
If carbon was a 'greenhouse gas' that warmed the globe. I would not be experiencing a trend to cooling.
Pay up or the earth get's it!
