mmmla... it's a bustling transportation / distribution / retail / high tech city of about 80,000 with two adjoining communities, Dieppe and Riverview, of about 20,000 each. The outlying rural areas are fairly well populated. We are 1 1/2 h from Saint John, Fredericton, Miramichi, and the Nova Scotia border. The population base for retail is large and you could shop for a week and not see half of it. There is some light industrial, so the air is clean. We are twenty minutes from beautiful beaches on the Northumberland Straight... the warmest waters north of the Carolinas.

Moncton was a railway and military town. They are gone, but our motto is Resurgo, and, while the rest of the country is in a recession, Moncton just keeps chugging. There are buildings going up all over the place. Everywhere you look, there's an apartment building going up and people waiting to rent... I just can't imagine where in hell they're all coming from. A good deal of the growth was spurred by the call centre business which located here because about 40 percent of our population is bilingual.

I won't drone on... you can visit Moncton's website or Tourism NB and learn a lot more than I could ever tell you.

Here in the Sacramento area in Northern California, it has been chilly and wet, with a few nippy days of magnificent sunshine. My sweetie lives 40 minutes northwest of me, near Auburn. She's at an elevation of 2,300 feet (750 meters?), so her air is colder and her skies clearer. She has had frost a couple of times. She's on a ridge that looks all the way across the Sacramento Valley to the Coastal Range. This time of year, she's line up just fright to see sunsets at their very best - and I saw two spectacular sunsets from her house this last week.

I see an interesting entry for the Thread Name Game here. When I looked at the Forum Menu, the first thread was "How's Your Weather?" and the second was "In the Bleak Midwinter."

..."and if you don't like the weather in New England, wait a few minutes".

It definitely qualifies as a bleak midwinter day here---freezing cold with sleet & snow mixed together---yuck. It does "look" a litle more like Christmas, but that small cosmetic advantage is outweighed by the nasty inconvenience of actually having to go outside and drive through it!

Here in Zone 7 on the Northeast Piedmont of NC it has been unseasonably mild--all season. No hard frost yet. Yarrow and calendula actually still blooming, and horror of horrors I still have aphids on the few leaves the drought has left on my roses. The groundhogs have munched my fall garden down to little nubbins, and Catspaw49, if I could catch the suckers I would gladly boil them for 2 weeks after skinning them alive (the skins make really good drum heads for small drums.)

Speaking of groundhogs--my grandmother used to tell this one on her brother Ray. When they were young children in eastern Kentucky the extended family always ate Sunday dinner at their house. Times were hard, and one Sunday their mom fixed a couple of groundhogs. She knew Uncle Clyde would not KNOWINGLY eat groundhog so told the kids before company arrived that if they wanted seconds to say "Please pass the meat" instead of groundhog. When Ray was ready for seconds he remembered he was not supposed to call it groundhog but couldn't remember what to call it. He finally asked his Uncle Clyde to "Pass the Body, please."

Still sunny but cooling here. I knew the new moon would bring a change. It's all downhill now, but the snow makes money change hands, so I'll just put a few more spuds in the stew and watch it snow.

Mmario, will you grant that day and dark are not evenly divided right now? We're getting a little more than 6 hours of daylight currently- and much of that isn't full daylight. But you're right- we get it all back next summer.

Today, for the first time in the couple of weeks since I'm back in town a bitter wind is blowing. It's right off the icefields and not tempered at all by the snow on the ground. Not a good day to go wandering.

Joe O, in mid-November I drove through the Sacramento Valley and the Siskiyous from and to the Oregon Willamette Valley. Had several hours of fog in the Sacramento area but otherwise we had wonderful driving conditions- dry freeway, open expansive hills, bright colors in the mountains. Gorgeous. And I fell in love all over again with Dunsmuir. Someday I must go spend some time there...

Presently here in sunny Maryland it's going up to 55 degrees Farenheit, which is adequate but I much prefer 79 and Hawaiian Shirts. If it gets much colder I'll have to resort to underwear (hee, hee) I hope Santa brings you a balmy day. Cheers.

As predicted, we had some weather yesterday and things are looking quite good for more today. The long-range forecast for parts of Virginia and West Virginia include the possibility of a wee bit of snow on Christmas. If this should happen, it will be the very first white Christmas I will have experienced in my lifetime. I didn't even have one while I lived in Montana. My definition of "white Christmas" is one on which there is actual percipitation on that day. I have had a few Christmases that featured snow left over from previous days, but I think it just isn't the same somehow.

I am soooo jealous of all the postings that mention moisture in the forecast. Here in the Northeast Piedmont of North Carolina, we are in the midst of a very serious drought. These past few days have been beautiful, cool for this time of year (mid 80's,) low humidity, absolutely Carolina Blue skies---but the water rationing has tightened to the point that only gray water may be used to water outside plants. I am shutting down my small commercial cut flower growing operation 3 months early. Even some of my day lilies and peonies are dead or dying.

Anybody know a song about drought and dying fields?

Colorado is DRY, DRY, DRY. We've had a little more rain and a couple of thunderstorms in the last few weeks, which has been great, and the fires are pretty much out -- but the drought is still very bad. For those of you who get tired of looking at rain, Colorado has an average of 300 days of bright sunshine a year. Generally, it's a fabulous climate. But we're suffering this year, after four years of below-average snowpack, so all our reservoirs are low anyway. Crops are dead or dying, watering is restricted all over the eastern half of the state, and probably the west too. There's nothing I would love more than the sound and sight and feel of a good, hours-long, hammering rain.
