Webcamming with the folks last night and they were mentioning the freezing rain. Everything was covered with ice.

Clear and cool here. Windy too.

Sinc, read the forcast for you folks from Environment Canada: "Heavy snowfall warning for city of Edmonton-St Albert-Sherwood Park continued
Snow continues to accumulate over central Alberta.
An upper level disturbance continues to produce an area of snow Over central Alberta. About 10 to 15 centimetres has already fallen with another 5 to 10 possible by this evening. The snow will taper off this evening as the system weakens."

Here in St.John's, this amount of snow is considered flurries. When we get three to five times that amount of snow in a 12-24 hour period it is considered a heavy snowfall.

Good luck, my friend.

What is wrong with the snow plows? It's been snowing on and off for the past 2-3 days, and the plows have yet to clean the streets up!

I walked to work this morning (about 15 blocks)... my legs were just aching from walking in crappy snow all over the sidewalks. I miss Longueuil, where the city had those small sidewalks plows and always had them clean throughout the summer...

Bright sun, blue sky, slightly windy, mountains visible all around, sea sparkling, fruit trees blooming, deciduous trees budding, flowers flourishing, birds singing. That's all I can say for sure without going anywhere - just reporting what I can see from my 12th floor balcony.

It's been so beautiful in Toronto today! I actually had the windows rolled down in the car at lunch and I was too warm in my winter coat. It's a perfect day.

We might be able to loan you a few plows and snow blowers.
