    Snow Day!

    It's a Snow Day here in Southern Ontario!

    All of the schools in London shut today. The University shut at about 11:30. I stayed home with a cough/cold, and am glad as I would have just been sent home after 3 hrs there along with the rest of the University. I've heard that some other businesses are also closing down...

    The birdfeeder is still open for business. Though the squirrel baffle is gathering a lot of snow

    But we won't be filling the feeder soon unless someone shovels out the back door...

    Driveway has been shoveled twice, and needs more soon. The forecast was 20-30cm last night, and today, and tonight. Each! I don't actually know how much has come down so far but it was up to my wife's knees when she stepped out onto the yard.

    Stay warm and put on the hot chocolate!

    Well Art you aint alone. We got nailed last night. Seems like winter wanted to make up for leaving us out of all the snow these past weeks.

    We got caught up alright. Back door at our place just the same as yours.
    cheers

    Wind comes from the Northwest over the lake, picks up a ton of moisture, and we get it. We call this a "streamer" from the lake.

    We've got 5~6" (15cm for you Northern guys) on the ground. I started the morning out on the tractor. Got the driveway clear, but now it's snowing again - 3~5" more predicted - and it's also drifting back across the driveway.

    25F (-4C) for today's high.

    Yep, winter's here!

    Please keep it up there for a while longer. I'm having problems with the high 30's right now.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    We've had a few flurries, nothing much. I know it's coming but the longer wait the better. Glad I don't live in Buffalo or up near you Art and Rob.

    White stuff last 3 mornings, never enough to do any harm, just enough to make for a good view.
