I'm thinking this might be the last rainfall data I will be collecting. Once the snow flies, I'll put it away for the winter and get out my trusty ruler!

I noticed it was 5 C.!
I was visiting Muskoka last weekend. (No - it is NOT *The Muskokas!) There was hail as I was cleaning up my parent's gravesite for winter! Hearty Cranfest visitors had their umbrellas up, but I spotted one women in capris pants and flip flops getting into her car!

I find it hard to find information on rainfall or snowfall, as it varies a great deal within a region. I decided to record the information myself!
The Lake Effect Snow, where winds pick up moisture from the great lakes and dumps it east over Muskoka, dumped on us that Friday/Saturday.
*There is only one Muskoka, it is not: 'The Muskokas'. Muskoka is probably named for Mesqua Ukie, the Ojibwa leader associated with the area during the 1800's. It was then the hunting grounds of a band led by Chief Yellowhead or Mesqua Ukie.
