We're now in a severe windchill warning. -45c temp outside right now with the wind. If that were in Toronto they'd shut the city down and call in the national guard. Up here, just another day. School buses are still running. Life goes on.

Honestly for me -49 F is almost incomprehensible to relate too, The coldest temperature I've been exposed to here is -22 F which is plenty cold enough but still a long, long way from -49.

Currently here: Slightly cloudy, Calm wind 32 F , Friday the 13th and upcoming full moon tonight.

Funny you should mention the full moon. I just finished taking a picture of the moon just to try out my zoom on the new to me cell phone. Came out fairly clear. My old s5 would have been very blurry

It's supposed to be in the low 70s today. The wind has dropped from its previous 50 mph plus. It could be very pleasant outside today. Three days ago, it never got above freezing. With swings like that, no wonder I am having trouble with my allergies.

The weather has been miserable for days. The temperature is not too bad but it's been damp, drizzly and misty. Bands of heavy showers pass through every now and again. Right now it's pouring but 5 minutes from now it'll be back to a steady drizzle.

I took the trash down to the gate this morning and that could be my work for the day. It's getting to be a little depressing. If I wanted weather like this, I would have stayed in Scotland.

I'm feeling this damp weather tonight. 2 celcius and raining when it was minus 40 last week. This isn't good. Deep frost in the ground and lack of snow to insulate now everything is saturated. When it freezes and it will there will be frozen and busted water lines everywhere.
I'm also concerned about the northern communities that are only accessible by winter roads. With this mild temperature they might not be able to get in all the supplies they need to survive till next winter.

It's been foggy here too. Almost to zero visibility. Mix that with the rain that froze overnight and the roads and sidewalks are slicker than the Exxon oil spill.

Look at our weather again for the next week. Starting to piss me off. Since the 7th of december til today, we had 3 days we didn't have to work at the snow. We have had some nice days but then we have to blow snow to get ready for the next storm, or if we have wind we have to clear snow drifts. Really starting to piss me off!

As far as snow goes back home which is only 3 hrs away they have close to 4 ft on the level. Here, we get lake effect from lake superior so it snows less. We generally get spring close to a month before they do

The sun broke through late yesterday and today is beautiful although a bit breezy. It's supposed to get to 70F today and with that wind, things should start to dry out. I sure hope so. All next week is supposed to be clear and sunny but the temperature is supposed to drop to the mid 50s. PERFECT.

I will have to break out of my post Christmas lethargy and actually get something done outside. Lord only knows, there is enough of it to do.

Pouring rain here. I'm not complaining though, we need it. The problem is mudslides and flooding.

We don't need it. Its causing problems with localized flooding because all of the storm drains are blocked with ice. The water has nowhere to go so it fills yards and seeps along the foundation into basements. Happened to us already this winter.

We had a bit of a cold spell last week but now we're into april weather. It stayed above freezing all night for the past couple nights. I thought we did good last year by camping in April. If this keeps up we'll be camping in march. It's now +5 celcius. Which is unheard of in northern Ontario in the middle of February.
