What a week of weather! Two major snowstorms with another on the way, a late week deep freeze, and no end in sight (long range forecasts show more goodies late next week). I can only say I'm VERY glad I bought that 4WD Dakota last Saturday! A summary of the week of Jan 16-22, 2005:

Sunday, Jan 16: nearly 40CM of snow (16") and 90km/hr wind
Wednesday, Jan 19: 21CM (8") of snow and 70km/hr wind
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Jan 20-22: temperatures in the -20 to -25 range with windchills into the -40's
Now, our forecast for tomorrow: 25-35 cm, 100km/hr wind, and more snow on Monday.

We've been having crazy weather all year too. Last week 8" - 12" snow, then a week of arctic temps. (-35 to -45 ), then, yesterday, it warms up and what do you know, a blizzard. Blowing snow everywhere, roads closed because they are impassible.

Going back a while, on new years eve we had a two feet of snow, and then a foot the week after that.

However it is suppost to hit -6 Tomorow :)

Got my T Bird stuck (almost) in the middle of my plowed street! The Michelin X-one tires that are on it, they go good in dry, rain & ice, but not snow! I had to use my company van (AWD Safari) to drag it back into my driveway! And in August, we'll be complaining about the heat!

It is unusually cold here in Boston as well, with snow right now. We are expecting 8-12". I hate it when it is too cold to even venture outside. I much prefer summertime.

Your damn luck I cannot throw a wrench that far. :evilgrin: :evilgrin:



Truthfully, I love living here. Think of all the things your are missing, snowmobileing, ice fishing, skiing, snowboarding, pulling stupid drivers out of the ditch, driving 104500 lbs on top of a frozen lake, did I mension snowmobiling?. And we don't stop these activities when the weather hits -40, we just keep the beer under the hood of the snowmobile so it don;t freeez. :giggle:

That remindes me, did anyone see last weeks simpsons? The simpsons come to Canada so Abe (grandpa) can take advantage of cheeper drug costs. When the simpsons pull into Winnipeg (the capital of Manitoba) the welcome sign reads

"We were born here! Whats your excuse?"

Another funny line was "we'll sell you enough drugs to make Regina seen like Saskatoon!" (I guess its only funny if you live here)

That's the storm we're getting tomorrow and Monday. We get a lot of Boston TV stations, so we usually have good advance warning of what the weater gods have in store for us. Whatever it is doing here today, it was doing yesterday in Boston. Now they're saying upwards of 40CM (16") by tomorrow midnight, and it's supposed to snow right through Monday! With 100km/hr (60MPH) wind! And this on top of the 24" we've already received this week in the previous two storms!

It's still no White Juan (the storm that gave us 38" over 24 hours last February), but if they keep upping the forecast it just may well turn into one...

Still snowing here - I can reach out my back window and touch the snow drift. And it's a split entry house, so the window is 8 feet off the ground...
