We have two seasons in Wyoming, summer and winter. This year we got three months of summer and it's looking like nine months of winter. September offered us a wretched bonus month of cold.

Pretty chilly in Europe for this time of year. Close to freezing at night on the Riviera, for instance...

The northwest shore of Lake Erie is a touch chilly right now but it's supposed to warm into the 50s in a few days.

Cold snap early here late oct to early nov which is good. That usually means we'll get a warm spell in late december.
Otherwise the weather is normal. We have 4 seasons here which I love.

My apologies, it's the South West shore. We always call it the North Coast around here and I typed before coming fully awake.

"The Great Blizzard of 1891" (can do a Google Image search). South of England under up to 20 feet of snow in March, clogging chimneys, trapping and killing hundreds of people and thousands of livestock, stopping all communications for days, dozens of boats sunk. Why do I mention this?

On a sidewalk of Paris, among other thrown-away books in a pile, I came upon a leatherbound hardback diary... looked old. Picked it up. First page had a handwritten note from Queen Victoria thanking the women of Wales for a Bust of her husband... Followed by notes by an unknown guy, reporting while traveling worldwide on the situation of Barings Bank - which was going through a bust (and bail-out) due to Argentinian bonds. The end is full of newspaper clippings from the 1890's. Among which, an article about a blizzard in Calais (French port across from Dover on the Channel), where locomotives were derailed and covered with snow, in a way cold hurricane-blizzard.

Did some follow-up searches, and here's a sample.

http://vichist.blogspot.fr/2015/01/came-in-like-lion-great-blizzard-of-1891.html

I don't need the thing, but some researcher might be overjoyed. Been thinking of dropping it off at the British Consulate... for some "archive".

My weather was cold and windy yesterday. Just cold today. But even though the wind was brutal, it saved me a lot of work. Probably gave the guy across the street more though. My yard went from being mostly covered with leaves from the maples that don't start shedding until around this time every year, to almost bare.

73f inside, high so far today of 41f outside. I came in soaked with sweat from mowing and bagging the leaves. Did not use a the rake at all, just the bagger on the mower. Push mower, (self propelled), but still enough for an old guy. Probably have to do it all over again as there are still leaves on the neighbors trees. I did use the leaf blower to blow a lot of the leaves back over to their yard. Ha!

That is what i think happened to Rand Paul. All the leaves he had piled up were blowing into his neighbor's yard. Neighbor becomes enraged and attacks, i have heard it happens.

That was a false flag to get everyone's minds off of the Las Vegas church shootings....

You know me spin i think it's all False Flags, but leaf blowing violence is real and forget about the rakers, those guys are nuts.

I hadn't thought of that. Guy across the street is heavily armed. Woops. I'll blame it on his next door neighbor.
Before Sandy blew in, my next door neighbor thought it would be the right thing to do to rake her leaves so they wouldn't go across the road. I told her that was what I was hoping would happen.

Snowed two inches last night in a white out storm up here at the lake house. Melted a little today with 34 degrees. Now 21 degrees. Our final pass at the leaves will likely have to wait until Spring. Got nothing done we planned to do thanks to snow. Craptastic.

Ugh. Dealing with leaves after the snow melts is not fun. Soaking wet.

Wouldn't know how to market it...

Go to Fleabay and look up antique books and find a reputable dealer there or find an antique book dealer. I suspect your diary is worth something, even at wholesale. I just dropped $400 on a set of four antique history books and have seen them go for far larger sums.

I was sitting outside after planting a nice big maple tree and got a little chilled yesterday. It must've been 60°F in the shade, nice and chill for around here. I then went down and checked on my garden, the garlic and onions are doing great (!) and the other cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage...) are finally getting going. The sweet potatoes just aren't doing anything this year though, kinda weird that they are filling garden up with the vines, but the russet potatoes are going great and I hope to get a nice bushel or two out of the ground next spring.
