Weather was weird all year. We had a late cold spring. Last frost was on Jun 20th. Summer was moderate but the crops, gardens, berries (especially saskatoons) were better than expected. October brought an early snowfall and unseasonably cold temperatures but it all melted and we enjoyed a mild snow free November. However in December winter returned with brutal cold and snow.
