Just admit that you don’t know…

I have mixed feelings when it comes to meteorology. Talk about a branch of science that is at the same time essential and completely useless. For one thing, there are large ereas of the globe where meteorologists would just be futile. For an example, when I lived in Guinea, everybody knew there were just a…… Continue reading Just admit that you don’t know…

Who’s your daddy?

Translation: ”Snow (pointing to the left), thanks!” When you live in Freezingland, you just have to show snow who’s the boss. Note that, being Canadians, we make sure to stay polite, even when we tell the white stuff where it belongs…

Été Indien…

  I think we had all given up the idea of having an Indian summer this year… I don’t remember ever experiencing one in November before. But this weekend, the temperature rose back close to 20 degrees Celsius (68 F) and the weather should stay that way for about a week. We’ll take every minute…… Continue reading Été Indien…

Too hot.

  I have a feeling Mother Nature has decided to slow-cook Montréal. This is our fourth 2020 heat wave. (I don’t care if they say it’s only 26 degrees Celscius outside today, when it offically feels like 37C, it counts!!) I won’t complain (much). It is a beautiful summer, with lots of sunshine, and my…… Continue reading Too hot.

You have to be kiddin’ me!

  Three months ago, when the governement sent most of us home with not the slighest idea when it’d be safe to get out again, I remember telling my little brother “Now that we’re in lockdown, I bet we’ll have the greatest summer EVER, weather-wise… Mark my words!” And boy, was I right!! June’s weather,…… Continue reading You have to be kiddin’ me!

We have survived!

    Twenty two years ago, Montréal was recovering after the worst natural disaster the province have experienced, ever. The ice storm that lasted almost a week long, and left 100 millimeters of icy rain behind (more than double the average total of icy precipitations for a whole year) paralyzed Montréal and many other cities…… Continue reading We have survived!
