-10C (14F) but the windchill makes it feel more like -19C (-2F). Lots of squalls coming in off of Lake Huron/Georgian Bay but not much here in town. It seems to be going around us. Lake Simcoe seems to be protecting us.

Much colder than average here. Should be 42F but it's around 23F. We will be below freezing for the rest of the week and will have to deal with a storm Saturday night/Sunday.

I wonder if that's the same storm we're due to get Friday night into Saturday. They were saying 3-6, now they changed it to 2-4. I think you get more snow on the east coast than we get.

Cold, cold, cold. Considering a week ago I was stepping off a cruise ship into the Bahamas, this weather is really hard to take. Thank goodness I leave for Key West in three weeks. Maybe I can travel enough this winter to skip the cold altogether.

I just came in from running my errands, we are having a miniature blizzard!

The driving was not too bad for my little truck. I did see a little car with a great big tower strapped on the roof trying to navigate the snow and ice without much success. When I got close to it the sign was for Google Earth, not a good day to go explore!

North of me the little town of Redfield has gotten over 5 feet of snow in the last couple of days. Years ago up that way, the oldtimers used to ask everyone they met three questions in the fall.

Got yer wood in?
Got yer deer yet?
Got yer 26 weeks in? (unemployment insurance for the winter months)

They are a hardy bunch!

Our little skiff of snow is gone and it is still raining. I am so glad the snow is gone because I can go out and get the mail.

It is Friday the 13th. I am wondering if that is an omen for the storm they keep telling us about all week. Being as close to the ocean as I am, our temps are a bit higher than what the weatherman is telling us. It makes it hard to decide what our weather is really going to be.
