This Year’s Remarkable Indian Summer

It is hard to believe we are approaching the end of November and we are still being blessed with typical Indian Summer weather, which is most often occurring in late September or October. Yes, I would be untruthful if I claimed that we did not have any snow. But the wet stuff melted away within twenty-four hours. And then there was more sunshine and great opportunities to capture a few more images… Enjoy.

    Beautiful images from Arrow Lakes, Peter. This year, the colder places are blessed with warmer weather and the places that are usually warmer are getting the colder weather. Here in Alaska, they cancelled an ice festival because the ice had not frozen. Usually, we have very cold weather but the temperatures have hovered right at freezing or just below. Enjoy your warmer weather!

    Die Hiffen oder rosebuds sind immer ein lohnendes Motiv. Das Pralle, die Fülle, die satte Farbe.
    Die Verschiebung der Jahreszeit ist schon sehr ungewöhnlich. In BRD sagt man ja, der Klimawandel ist jetzt definiotiv angekommen: 1,5 Grad mehr. Das wird jetzt in 1001 Varianten dargeboten, aber wenn schert es wirklich in Stadt und Land??
    Nein, verzichtet wird nicht, jetzt erst recht. Und was helfen könnte, wie Windräder – das wollen wir auf gar keinen Fall, niemals, niemals in Sichtweite.
    Und so geht alles seinen Gang…

    Extraordinary to be having such mild weather at this time of the year. Your photos make me think of springtime rather than late autumn.

      The Arrow Lakes region is a lttle bit off the beaten path, but well worth taking a small a detour from the Trans Canada Highway.

    Well, summer is finally over in the San Francisco East Bay Area. We had thunder and lightning last night. And rain, lots of it! I think that means fire season is over, too, and hopefully no more power outages!

    Those are nice pictures of your Indian Summer, Peter!

      You finally got the rain that was needed to get the forest fires under control.

    Lieber Peter, vom Breitengrad sind wir vielleicht gar nicht sooo weit voneinander entfernt? Ich bin mir grad nicht so ganz sicher, müsste ich nachschauen, aber auch hier zeigt sich der November gerade eher klar und durch den Fön auch frühlingshaft. Heute kam Wind auf, seit langer Zeit einmal, vielleicht bringt er nun die Kälte?
    Schöne Bilder wieder. Danke dafür und
    liebe Grüße
    Ulli

    Indian summer weather? Now that’s an interesting term. What does this signify?

      It is a term being used here in Canada that refers to the extension of sunny (not necessarily warm) weather deep into fall.

        It is very cold right now, but the sunshine is a great comfort for my wife and me, as we depend so much on light.

      Indeed, it is my hope that these images of a rare fine weather period in November would bring some joy to my readers. The weather now has turned bitter cold, well below freezing, but the sunshine continues. Have a great weekend, Des, and thank you!
