Yesterday we had a windstorm go through with sustained winds at 100 kph for about an hour. It did a lot of damage to trees and blew shingles off roofs in our neighbourhood.

It is -17 this morning with gusting winds that produce a wind chill of -30. It is a chilly day here in alberta with a lot of freshly fallen snow blowing around, Visibility will be poor on the way to work.

Cheers

Unhappy

Yesterday ... -37 with windchill at -48 to -51 drifting snow and a big honkin' snow plow. The neighbours kept me cleared out again.
This morning -42 on my thermometer. Windchill supposedly at -48.
Sinc's snow is moving in, so temps will rise to -8 for tomorrow

I understated the weather at the farm yesterday. -35 before windchill. With windchill it's damn cold.

Nostril stickin' out there again today. It doesn't get this cold until February. I have friends who are lambing. Chose December lambing cause it's warmer. The ewes are crossing their legs so their lambs stay put until it gets warmer. lol.

The cold spike that is going as far south as Georgia is causing unseasonably warm and windy weather for us here in St.John's. It is going up to +11C today, with a low between now and Christmas eve at +4C. I can't remember a Christmas eve without some snow on the ground, and I have been here for 27 Christmas eves. I only hope that people are not hurt by this unexpected cold in central Canada, nor travel plans ruined for those wanting to see friends and family. I am not gloating over this strangely warm weather, much like our friend on the west coast, because I resent his childish taunts towards anyone not living in lotusland. However, this is a very abnormal condition for us here on the easternmost edge of Canada.

I will be very happy when this cold snap is over. My coworker, who is from originally rural Manitoba, is laughing at all of us native Torontonians, but hey, cold is cold.

Still, as much as I'm a warm weather person, the cold weather helps keep the ground frozen and keeps squirrels from digging down and chewing on my bulbs. It'll be interesting to see what survived next spring.

It would be nice to get some snow in before the Christmas holidays, but I'll take a return to more typical Toronto temperatures.

Of course, for those inclined to travel.....

Stay inside during storms on Saturn

"FINDING yourself in a thunderstorm on Saturn would be a truly shocking experience, scientists have discovered.

New data from the Cassini spacecraft shows that lightning on the ringed planet is a million times stronger than on Earth. But even terrestrial lightning can deliver between 100 million and one billion volts of electricity."

-21 is very cold for TO. I remember when I lived there ...way, way back when ... Walking around Toronto in winter was no fun. The damp, cold wind drove right through your clothes and it didn't matter which way you were facing, the wind was always in your face. So my friends, you are not wimps. I'll take our much drier (and usually) windless cold over your weather.
