Hi Everyone,

I have just returned from 6 weeks in Canada - two weeks in Ontario and 4 weeks in British Columbia and Alberta. In Ontario they were complaining that it was a very late spring. My sister grows salad greens and vegetables for restaurants and her plantings were delayed with the possibility of frosts. We actually had one while I was there in mid-May. Then while in Alberta, it snowed in Banff for the first time in 33 years in June. The locals were not happy but we loved it.

So the winter conditions are certainly hanging on longer in those areas and no doubt they are in Siberia as well.
