  1. +9 C today, can get to the bbq and I heard geese last night!!
  2. Woke up to -43 windchills It's "warmed up" to -32 windchill
  3. We've got the wrap around cold now. -40 windchill tonight.
  4. I did try to post a before and after, but the photos on my phone are too large and I don't know how to resize them
  5. woke up this AM to the sounds of a tow truck rescuing my neighbour....who was stranded in our parking lot. I notice his SUV is back in it's parking spot, so I assume he gave up his attempt to go to work. All the highways are closed, schools are closed (even for staff!!) and most small businesses are closed. It's pretty bad, I live in a 2 story townhouse and there is snow that was blown up and packed into the 2nd floor windows.
  6. Blizzard conditions are now here. We had freezing rain all morning and into the early afternoon, before it changed over into light snow. The snow is now quite heavy. The TransCanada is closed, and other highways are poor driving. Glad I am snugged in.
  7. So yeah, this is on the way: http://weather.gc.ca/city/pages/mb-58_metric_e.html
  8. Yesterday was lovely and warm. Today, it's pretty raw...and tomorrow we have between 30 and 40 cms of snow heading our way!
  9. It's the Louis Riel long weekend here. Sat we were up to +7, so everything turned to slush (causing a snowmoble derby to be cancelled). It went down to -4 overnight, causing everything to freeze hard. It went up to 1, and we had rain on and off all day. My parking lot is now a rather bumpy skating rink. It's actually quite dangerous to get to the car. today it's +2 and the sun is desperately trying to shine. This is nuts for Feb in MB. It's also Festival du Voyageur in Winnipeg, and events have had to be cancelled (not to mention what has happened to the snow and ice sculptures) http:
  10. We are back to March temps, after Jan temps last week. The ice on the sidewalks and parking lots is INSANE. However, things could be worse...the Maritimes are being hit by a huge storm, 70 cms of snow...and freezing rain and more snow is going to hit them later this week.
  11. My mom is in TX right now, enjoying her second week of temps in the mid to high 20's. We went from March temps (+4, +8) and everything melting, to freezing rain on Mondaym followed by freezing temps (-29 at night) during the day. Which means *everything* and I do mean *everything* is a skating rink right now. Walking is very dangerous.
  12. We are now out of the deep freeze (both Sat and Sunday saw -43 windchill) and its mild again. So my car windows are no longer frozen shut!
  13. So MB got slammed by a three day Colorado low. Tons of snow. This also brings "wrap-around" cold. It is- 40 even as I type with the windchill.
