I'm wondering if there is any news on great grays, boreal, or snowys for the upcoming winter.
There have been a few sightings of snowys near the Canadian border and North Dakota recently but nothing more. 
I understand there has been a report of no or very few lemmings in the arctic but have not heard a breeding report for the SNOWs. 
Any news appreciated :)

Too early to tell :-) Wait until mid-November. Not unusual to see a snowy owl this early for the current year. A number of them over-summered in Ontario. One thing I do not expect to see as much as last winter is great gray owls. Last winter there were a few of these owls around in the Ottawa area. That's because the winter following or preceding an irruption winter (last irruption was winter 2016-2017 - it's every 4 years and sometimes 5) may see a few around. That was the case last winter.
