-8 centigrade = 17.6 fahrenheit. Too damn cold waiting for the commuter train this morning. And more snow and ice forecast for tonight. Can you tell it's nearly spring, eh?

It snowed all morning, the streets are so slippery because there is a thin layer of ice underneath. And this afternoon it has gotten so windy that it ever blew over our birdbath that was full of water and has a heating element in it.

Snowed here too. I want spring. But we do need that moisture.

0C at the moment, but this is what the weather watch says, "15 to 30 centimetres of snow and blowing snow locally are expected over these regions beginning late tonight or early Tuesday morning..."

I think that's the same storm that chrismcphee is looking at.

Windy as heck and spitting the occasional snowflake. I'm afraid my Brother is driving right into the storm as they had to get to Idaho this afternoon.

Welcome home! Wait long enough & the weather will get better!

Windy & cold here today. Snow flurries off & on all day. Nothing stuck. All of the snow is 2 hours north of us.

The sun is finally out but the cold blowing wind is almost unbearable.
