We're getting snow/ice/rain this morning. When the temperature reaches its predicted high of 8 degrees we'll have straight rain, and a lot of it. So it'll be slushy and horribly messy today... and when the temperature drops off to -12 tonight, the mess will freeze solid. Deep freeze (-17) this Saturday.

It's -20 here this morning and very windy which will bring a warm front from the west. Expected high of +4 by afternoon and remaining above zero to a high of 8 tomorrow. Then a cold front barges in and the temps drop back to -20 with snow and blowing snow for Christmas Day and a blizzard forecast for Boxing Day. Since I never venture out on Boxing Day, it won't bother me a bit!

Cheers

I feel guilty for saying this, but it is sunny with blue skies and +2C here in St.John's.

I feel badly for all of the people that are going to have their holiday plans ruined/disrupted by the travel conditions on the road and at the airports due to the weather in southern Ontario. I have experienced this sort of delay once and I wish it on NO ONE else, especially at this time of year.

Peace to one and all. Bon voyage, bon chance.

I hear that freezing rain is predicted for later today in the GTA. This is, in my opinion, more dangerous than lots of snow.

Autopilot, here in St.John's, which is city in Canada that gets the most snow and freezing rain, I am eternally grateful that I am able not to have to drive to work in this sort of weather. During winter semester, I am a teleprofessor, and do not have to leave my home to teach at Memorial Univ.

looks like i'm not going anywhere either for awhile...

windshield wiper (driver's side, of course!) in the work car i borrowed stopped working right before i hit bayview; called the tech folks at work, did my best with my fingers, and nothing...

so, i'm sitting at home waiting for roadside assistance to tow me into work. 2-3 hour wait apparently... :S
