It's -4C, so not all that cold. But, it is snowing a lot and windy. A friend of mine went out and said her granny wagon was horizontal from the wind a lot of the time.

I don't have any pressing reason to go out, so I won't.

Right now, it's 45F - it's supposed to go down to 28F tonight. Looks like snow and sleet are headed our way Friday.

Kylie, it cracks me up every time I see you say, "The change has come through." Here "the change" means menopause For what you're referring to, we say "The [cold or warm] front has come through."

NOAA (National Oceanographic & Atmospheric Administration) posted this graphic on Facebook today. Thought you might find it interesting. I'm married to a former Navy meteorologist/oceanographer, so we keep up with this stuff

We have the same, SB, though they're saying we might get 6" of the white stuff, but not till Thursday late afternoon. And our weatherman says you might get 8"!

-9C and it's still snowing. I wonder how much we got so far. It looks like about 15 cm.
