Rainy Fall Days

We’ve had a wet weekend here in Winnipeg.  It’s Monday and still raining.  Just a few days ago, Thursday and Friday particularly, we’ve had temperatures of 31C and 32C.  It dropped down to around 13C over the weekend, and today we’ve only reached a high of 9C.  This is how drastic temperatures can change here. 

It’s time to take out the pajamas, sweaters and comforters from hiding.  But we still can’t put away our shorts and light clothing.  This is one thing I don’t like about Fall.  We are still in between hot and cold temperatures.  We can’t turn on the heater yet and there’s lots of condensation in the house.  If it’s not raining, it’s usually cloudy and it looks gloomy outside.  Otherwise, it’s beautiful because some of the trees are starting to turn golden. 

But one thing that cheered us up today is Awards Night at Reggie’s high school.  He received two awards.  So that compensated for the gloom we’ve been experiencing these past few days.

    Thanks for the first reminder of YOUR coming wintry season. It reminds me once again of one of the primary reasons I live here in the land of the constant balmy. Ahhhhh! I love the tripics… I suffered through 5 Michigan winters after my dad retired there. I’m sure it’s even more miserable there in Manitoba.

    What awards did he receive?

    It’s really cold here also because it has been raining cats and dogs; for weeks now. Pretty gloomy when it rains. Hmm!

    Zeroimpact, thanks for visiting. 9C is actually still mild. It’s gonna get a lot colder when winter comes. And yeah, the leaves turning to different colours are quite a sight.

    Thank you, Ladybug. Yes, I am a very proud mom.🙂

    Thank you, Eric. He got awards for – are you ready for this? – Academic Achievement in both Concert Band and Jazz Band. No surprise huh?

    Phil, don’t you miss winter, even just a little bit? Yes, it can get pretty miserable here when we get the freezing temperatures.

    Thank you, Kyels. The awards were for academic achievement in concert band and jazz band. He’s pretty passionate about his music.🙂

    DR, thank you for the concern. This is actually cold and flu season. At least one of us usually gets sick around this time of the year.😦

    Congratulations to Reggie and, of course, to the proud mom!

    Weather that’s hot in the morning, humid the rest of the day and raining at nights … that’s what we’ve been having too and it makes me sick, literally.
