It got cold almost overnight.
Last week, we were making fun of British-Colombia for their snowstorm because for once, we barely had any snow in Ontario. Well, there still isn’t much snow on the ground but the few centimetres we have won’t melt this time, not until spring at least. It’s cold. We even had freezing rain Friday morning and everything was coated in ice. The wind was bad too.
This week should be between 5°C and -5°C which is fairly normal for late November. Yet, I’m glad to escape to sunny Australia. Looking for the summer…
On Saturday, as I was walking out of the mall, I noticed the sky was turning a nice shade of yellow. I hurried to Parliament Hill, the closest vantage point, and stood in the cold for almost 45 minutes to capture the sunset. Nothing dramatic but a nice clear sky and a beautiful gradient. A classical late fall sunset, basically.
You can see the whole Ottawa Fall set here.
