It's funny I happen to know what those coins are but no idea where they got their names.

 

I like their $2, I've always had a thing for world bi metal coins. 

 

One of our Facebook friends just got really excited.

1 dollar coin is a loonie
2 dollar coin is a toonie
I made up the 5 dollar coin, it doesn’t exist yet.

We also don’t have pennies anymore. Cash sales a rounded to the nearest 5 cents

 

I used to have over a thousand of their cents, but got rid of my whole Canadian collection a few years back. I wonder if people are profiting now off of those.

Does Red Robin accept loonies?

They do up here.
Good burgers. They are probably worth about 15 loonies.

I assume you are talking about 2012, must have been snowy up there in the north interior.

Yes and it sure was!

I think their reasoning was that it cost them something like 1.3 cents to make and distribute a coin that only has a value of 1 cent.

Yeah, about 6" of snow, then maybe 5-6 hours of freezing rain in Tacoma.

2012 was much worse, from what I've heard.

 

2012 was an epic forecast bust. It was forecast to be one day of snow, then the marine air would flood in and turn it all to rain and start melting it. Instead, the cold air held at the surface while the marine air came in aloft and it was a day of heavy snow followed by a major and destructive ice storm. I was in West Seattle at the time and remember waking to rain, going outside to feel how mild it had gotten overnight, and being greeted by unexpectedly frigid air and ice everywhere (with more falling).

They were always obvious to this American. The Canadian $1 coin has a picture of a loon on the back. The $2 coin came significantly later, and its name is an obvious Portmanteau of "two" and "loonie".

The U.S. penny now costs more to manufacture than its face value, but our Federal government tends to be a little on the slow side when it comes to realizing the obvious and implementing the obvious solution.

Just hit the 30’s here now. Coyotes don’t mind the colder weather, they are very active tonight and cackling in the woods right next next to the house, my Border Collies are convinced they need to go out there and run them off.

Maybe a couple days in the upper 60s or low 70s by next Wednesday, but then we cool back down.

Plenty of warm days and cool nights though, colors will look great in about a week.

Easily.

 

Pretty similar progressions too. Both were wet throughout and started off warm/muggy with thunderstorms before transitioning into a cool pattern mid-month and then ending with a bang (big storm in 2013, record cold in 2019).

Crazy! Wow I would have thought they would have only been +0.5F must have been the warm nights. That plus that 93F for us kept us on the plus side.

Looks like most stations will run a smaller positive anomaly up this way. Shawnigan Lake was +0.9F thru the 29th. So probably close to +0.7 or 0.8. Abbotsford was closer to 0.5F
