Well, we've avoided an other major storm. What was to be the worst storm this year (in this area)has passed with minimal snow fall. About 3" in our area. Ice and rain that was to be part of the storm..didn't happen.

Bushman,Novi and others, don't suppose you really care....
P.S. gas prices here down to 78.9/L

Well, there ain't been nodding I culdna drive in, my son, noddin' a tall.

Seriously, there was a storm Dec. 26 that dumped a bunch, then there was a day the West Coast of NL shut down (more because we all felt deprived of a 'snow day') and then there was the Nor'easter that came through a wee while ago. T'weren't that much. Only about 9" (one stair of my 21 up from the street).

But just you wait. Having been here 22 full years, in my 23rd winter, believing in such a mild Dec-May is NOT ON!!! Not to worry, about March 21, Sheila's gonna Brush through with her usual fury at the idea of being sent packing by spring.

4 weeks, nah sometimes even in April. That would be our luck.

& hey, we got Sheila, but were not all Sheila's

Nova Scotia, especially those Cape Bretoners, they gots Sadie's Broom. That gal is Sheila's cousin, and she can huff and puff and create tidal surges to rival Sheila any March you care to talk about.

& you know, there's always July

Feeling deprived because we haven't had them, rather.

Want snow? We love snow as it fills up the potholes on the roads.

I ran into snow yesterday at La Pocatière at lunch time, been snowing here ever since. 150K with no power, 37 car pileup on the #40, train derailed on a bridge in Montréal because of high winds.

-30 windchill tonight, skiing tomorrow.

All is fine, have not yet run out of beer!

Brad, me son, there weren't no storm out here, dat storm was 8 hours driving from 'ere.

As for what looked like 9" in some places, I could almost take a deep breath and blow it away. Shoveling was more like sweeping, except that my broom was a shovel. Re. driveway, I pay because if I don't, I have to load aboard the truck and drive it away.

Your namesake and team got into St. John's at 1:30 this morning. I hear they were met by 2,000 hardy souls. There was talk on this side of the island yesterday of having them overnight in Toronto and arriving in St. John's this morning. Now, if I were a weary traveller, I would do just as they did, get home!!!

Currenly -18'C, wind increasing this morning -26 windchill predicted. In two weeks real long term melt might start, but............ Sheila.......hasn't missed in 22 years.

So, just what do you think I heard when I was out in this -18' presently clear day?

Sparrows.

Brad, time to change the thread name.

Spring Watch may be a fit!!!
