Whoa. You folks are definitely seeing arctic cold. Thankfully it seems to be staying on the other side of the Rockies and Cascades for us. I actually thought of mowing the lawn today, but was too busy pruning trees.
We had a cold day here but we also had a big ole February sun today. Sunday is suppose to be -20 with the windchill factor.
Yeah it was a toasty 40 outside today but it ain't happening tomorrow. The cold front has arrived and we do the twenties tonight and off the cliff tomorrow and tomorrow night. Nothing for the real winter folks but a pain in the butt here in the tropics. Been under average since early November. And the woodpile is showing it.
Eeek! We are supposed to wind chill to six or seven which is damned cold to these old bones.
Yep, that wind will make you cold quick. I plan on doing some work outside, we'll see how long I last.
14 inches of snow for me in the next 24 hours. And another storm on Wednesday. Yay!
21 degrees right now with very high winds and low visibility due to heavy snow.. Looks like a blizzard to me!

Looks like it's time to pack that basement with heat, the Liberty should draft well.
Nothing like last weekend, but a nice little snow for a lazy Sunday morning.
Here too Ray. It's not often they call for a blizzard but this time it is pretty straight forward: they are forecasting up to 24 inches of snow and winds of up to 90km/h. I am going outside shortly to bring in a few wheelbarrow fulls of wood, fill the tub with water (wanna be able to flush the toilet) and wait out the storm. I love it!
Good Luck Andrew hope you don't lose power like we did! The problem we had was it snowed heavily for hours with the temp above freezing so the trees became heavily iced up and starting falling like dominoes with the hurricane force winds we endured..
Here's what is going on right now! The picture is a snapshot from a video so it lacks in quality. Winds are gusting to 60 KM/h and they are calling for up to 120 KM/h perhaps a meter of snow..YIKES!

Winter storm warning for
Forillon National Park - Gaspé - Percé continued
We expect a total of 25 to 40 centimetres over Eastern Quebec.
Some Gaspésie areas will receive up to one metre of snow locally.
Moreover, winds blowing up to 120 km/h will reduce the visibilities to zero in blowing snow.
WOW that's a real nasty storm! At least you got the dry snow or you'd have no power like we did.. Stay safe!
YEah, the wet snow was yesterday and we only had 3-4 inches. Dry stuff tonight. It is really snowing/blowing now. And this storm kinda came out of nowhere: it formed over the eastern seabord and swept into the Gulf of St Lawrence.
We got quite a bit of snow and crazy winds here today but nowhere near as much snow as you at least not this time .. Haven't snowblowed at all due to the crazy winds here.. Hope tomorrow AM is calm so I can get the snow done!
Hope you don't have to go out in that storm. It is bad here, but mostly due the wind, some snow, but not enough to worry about.
Ray: This place is the Mecca of snow. GOod thing I invested in a good snowblower.
Save: Naw, no need to go out. Although I love driving in storms like this. Take your time, great winter tires, AWD vehicle and big open parking lots! But I am staying in with the family tonight. The stove is cranking out the heat..the basement is 28C and usptairs is 22C.
Sounds like the Osburn is keeping up very nicely too
Here are some pictures of the damage. I believe we received 45-50 CM (18-20 inches) with winds of 60KM/h.
You have my utmost sympathy Andrew. This is all the snow I need: http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/performance/letitsnow/
Here's some background music for snowblowing:
LOL. Thanks BeGreen. The sad part is that we are supposed to get another 15-25 CM on Wednesday. On another note, you've put me back into the CHristmas Spirit! HO HO HO!
OMG Andrew that's an amazing amount of snow! That has to be one serious snowblower!
I can't afford a yamaha or honda blower ($3500+) but I have an Ariens and it is a beast.
Best part: we have received 26 inches. And we are supposed to get another 16 later this week....phoooooooey!
I have 2 snow blowers and one is an MTD 8HP and the other is a 7.5HP Ariens.. I find the Ariens is much easier to work with and I think I will be selling the MTD and hope to get $300.00 for it.. In my opinion the Ariens is better built, starts and runs easier and uses less gas too.. If I ever bought a new one it would probably be an Ariens..
