Weekly Wrap Up (Oct. 16 - Oct. 22)




They say a picture is worth a thousand words ;) This is what it looked like in my next of the woods after 3 days of temps in the mid 20's C, (77F) which were records, to dropping down below 0 overnight (32 F) and getting around 15 cm (6 inches) of snow :o Just so you know, even though I'm happy to see some much needed moisture and the first snow fall of the year, I blame this 100% on @Krista :gikkle:  She wished this on me for like the past month and a half. 

Now rumour has it snow has been spotted below the Mason Dickson Line already :o So curious, have you had any snow? The ways things are I guess it might be appropriate to ask everyone, no matter where you are ;) 

This week we got into a regular groove again and had some missed weekly blogs make their returns.

Monday, Cia was in to introduce us to this gem of a story in our Signature Feature:

Wednesday she was back with an excerpt from the story to entice you into taking a look.

Wednesday was Val's time to talk to us all about anthology themes. She also opened up a couple of polls to gauge opinions out there.

Friday, Additus brought us back to the weekly prompts. Are you thinking it is time to give one a go?

Saturday was Comsie's day to bring a new writing article to help everyone out.

Each morning, depending on where you live :unsure: we got a new word of the day:

The southtowns here got snow, but where I live we only got some sleet, hail, and graupel.  It felt more like mid-November vs mid-October.  Thankfully it's a beautiful fall weekend here, even if all the storms got rid of most of the leaves.

High temp yesterday was 82F.  High today expected to be 80F.  Much better than last M-Thurs.  Which saw lows in the 20'sF....

It's sad when you run the a/c and heat in the same week!

Snow on Steven's wee head, you love to see it. :) We've already gotten snow down here, which was way too early for my liking and likely the work of voodoo, don't trust a certain Canadian. His delinquency knows no bounds. Dreadful really, the sacrifices I have made to shield you all from the cheeky little heathen. 

In all honesty, the weather here has been awful. Windy, bitterly cold. Then windy and hot. It needs to make up its mind and I wouldn't mind some rain, we need it. Just not snow. It needs to be where it belongs and that's melting on the rosy cold wind burned cheeks of you Canadians. :P
