We're just west of you and I took the opportunity to drive out to the Leonard J. Buck Gardens with my son and go for a walk. The gardens are situated in a small, rocky gorge cut into basalt flows by the draining of Glacial Lake Passaic about 12,000 years ago. Our high temp for the day was 70°F, but it was a bit cooler in the gardens.

Peak season for the gardens is mid-spring to mid-summer, but it's beautiful year round. Unfortunately, the rains of the past week brought down most of the autumn foliage, but it was still nice.

Several people who have visited the gardens have posted videos at Youtube, if anyone is interested.


I'm sorry to hear about your heat situation, mlewis78. If it's any consolation, when I got home from our walk I ran the dishwasher and it overflowed into the kitchen. I think I cleared the drain blockage. I'm running it again now to see.

It is fairly bright here but quite cool. This following a week of almost continual dull grey skies and moderate temperatures.

We had rain and wind last night, but the sky cleared just in time for me to watch the lunar eclipse for a while. I was out at about 3:30 EST and stayed out for about 10 minutes, but it was too cold, wet, and slippery from all the leaves that came down for me to watch the whole show.

We've had very mild weather these last couple of days. But from Monday the temperatures will drop, especially at night. Hopefully installing my new gas heater will go smoothly tomorrow and we've got all the parts to make it work.

Cool but bright here, with a very heavy overnight dew, leaving everything in the road damp and sorry looking!

I'm sorry to hear about the dishwasher.

We are down to 32 degrees F. (0 Centigrade) and clear right now, so we actually have heat at 3:00 AM. First time this season. Heat is usually off between 10pm-6am (at least), but with it being at freezing outside now, the heat is on.

Tuesday was the first time I wore my down coat outside, since I was cold on Monday wearing my thinsulate parka. It was snug on me last winter due to 2020 weight gain (lots) and the snaps would pop when I bended over, but I've lost a lot since February and it's loose on me now. This will give me room to layer more as it gets even colder.

Later it will be sunny with a high of 46 F.

La Nina found a way to get itself inside - bucketed down for a while - drip, drip, drip.

Will have to send a lackey up on the roof tomorrow - sigh.

Seems we're in for a wet summer - that's okay as long as it's not stinking hot.

The first of 3 bands of heavy precipitation (now being called an atmospheric river) has arrived. Quite a bit of worry that the cleanup from the last round of heavy rain and flooding has not been finished and more flooding is likely.

Whoa! I hope you can stay dry and safe through this!

Here, too. The past few days have been cold, windy and cloudy. Today was mostly sunny and warmer than average. The cold weather is expected to resume tomorrow.

It's still raining here. On a brighter note, the Coquihalla Highway may reopen for limited essential traffic by the end of January, 2022.

It's getting colder this week. Today it'll be rainy and 4-5C, but when it rains (most of the day) it'll feel like 2C.

It'll stay cool until Tuesday or Wednesday.

Tomorrow the heater guy is coming to inspect and install my new, second hand, gas heater and clean and check the one in the living room. Finger's crossed mine will work and it will work better than the old one.
