We have had snow , sleet, freezing rain, more snow and sleet mixed together and then all snow. Along with this we have very high winds all day. At 9:15 pm tonight we are hearing thunder. Amazing!

Quiet at the moment. We greeted the day with lots of lightning and heavy thunder. One clap of thunder rattled the whole house. When that happened I was sitting at the computer in our home office and I noticed the windows rattling. It was quite a rock 'n roll.

Lots of rain for most of the rest of the day. It's the season here. We'll have storms off and on through spring. Just part of living in this area.

Wonder if we'll get the tail end of the storm, kadesma? Hope so!
It's clear sunny and cool here. I prefer dark cold wet days, but I was hoping for sun since dh took the kids to the race today.

Forecast was for freezing rain, but it's snowing huge flakes now, with a few inches so far on top of the ice that was there at 3:30 am. They'll probably cancel school tomorrow, but that means I don't have to fight rush hour traffic to babysit for my stepdaughter.
It's so pretty outside right now, very heavy wet snow all over the branches.

Thumbs down Yucky weather

Snowy and windy. The snow is blowing all over the place, just making it miserable. This morning I woke up to a yard full of snow. I hate the winter weather. I cannot wait for spring. Next week I am going to bring in Sacramento, CA. At least even if the weather is bad it won't be snowing.

It's a healthy -20 celcius (Probably around 0F) in Ontario. There are snow piles higher than me on either side of the driveway!

Not bad, finally. The last couple of days have been gloomy and quite rainy. Plus, lots and lots of wind. I would've sworn I saw Dorothy and Toto fly by my window this afternoon. It's a balmy 44 F and the winds have stopped...for now.

Hopefully things will be more moderate the next several days. I see "greenie" things poppin' up in our yard. Spring, yes, is just around the corner!!
