We hit 27.1C yesterday (hottest temp in Canada) with pure blue sky. It was an incredible day out there. A nice little blast of summer.

Back up to 27C today with more sunshine feeling like 30 with humidity.

Tomorrow a few spots have a slight chance at hitting 30C including the Greater Montreal area in Quebec and the Alliston/Borden region of Southern Ontario. Keep your eyes out. Personally I think they will both stall out around 29C but it will be close.

Sable Island is 8a and some extreme spots in NS might be too although they have such a limited summer that they might not be great growing locations (and they are in the middle of nowhere).

I wonder if anybody is experimenting with outdoor heaters and lighting to extend the limits further. It might not take much energy to set up a heater that runs only when the temperature goes below a certain point. If you wanted to keep a plant above say -10 you would only need to heat it a little bit. One invention I saw recently was a solar-powered cold frame opener that automatically opens and closes based on the temperature.
I’m sure the hardiest varieties of figs can grow in Halifax region without any winter protection. There was one huge fig that grew here in Windsor (7a) for about ten years before succumbing to the polar vortex winter of 2014. It was never buried and was close to 6 ft tall. Occasionally it would suffer some branch dieback, but it always came back and fruited in time to harvest.

OK, so now I have to try figs, pawpaws, cannas, and what else...?

Officially Halifax is 6a to 6b, but I'm fairly certain I'm a solid 7a at my house, maybe even better.

Jesus Christ... so basically the entire planet is about to be devastated by drought, during the worst locust plague in nearly a century, during a time with limited remittances and relief aid because of unemployment and skyrocketing debt related to the pandemic.

Canada seems to be the only country that won't be rocked by this thing, even though we're one of very few countries who could actually weather it well. Fuck sakes.

The only part of Canada that looks to see below normal snowfall amounts are from Southern Ontario, parts of extreme Southern Quebec to Atlantic Canada. Everyone else from BC across the Prairies to NW and N Ontario and most of Quebec will see above normal snowfall.

Makes sense, most La Nina's set up the main storm track across the Great Lakes creating a sharp divide on who gets rain and who gets snow. The EURO is suggesting the sweet spot for snowfall will be the North Bay/Sudbury/Timmins corridor , while Southern ON could end up with rain. A small movement south though and Southern ON could cash in with heavy snows. La Nina's are very hit or miss. BC however is looking pretty likely to see above normal snowfall.

I hope it's true for us, at least. That deep red is looking good. I don't wish drought or snow on anyone else, of course, but after January of this year, I don't know if I have another winter left in me.

Looks like the year for snowboarders and skiers to get a season's pass for either Red Mountain or Whitewater.

I haven't had a decent day for snowshoeing in a few years. :-( It's either no snow, or a big dump of too much wet snow that freezes.

We have the benefit of elevation on our side. Mild winter lows in the valley bottoms and tons of powder on our mountain tops. If you want more snow here then just go higher.

It's any fall warm snap after the first freeze. Here at least we've had our first freeze.
