I know Dan, we're freezing down here too. But we have to be thankful no snow. Nice and sunny for us today so we have to be thankful for that also.

Here they say if 0F is cold for you, it will be colder by Sat.
I might just show up at work on Sat and let them pay me overtime to use their heat.

38 and Sunny in DooDah....Finally above freezing.

I'll be glad when the cold is done. I'm tired of TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) telling me my tires are flat because the battery can't power the senors because of the cold.

Yes my daily is an '09.

True, I just wish they'd turn the heat on in the motel...

My first winter back north after 17 years - and it's above average snowfall and below average temperatures so far.

Snow Squall - Warning from 2018-01-06 5:31:14 AM to 2018-01-06 5:59:14 PM


snow squall warning in effect

Snow squalls are occurring. Under the snow squall bands, visibilities will be significantly reduced due to the heavy snow combined with blowing snow, and snow will quickly accumulate.

Lake effect snow squalls are continuing to affect areas southeast of Lake Huron with the strongest squalls near Grand Bend extending southeastward to western sections of London. Local snowfall amounts up to 15 cm per 12 hours are likely in the strongest snow squall bands and visibilities near zero are expected due to strong northwesterly winds making travel hazardous. The snow squalls will continue into this afternoon, however, will become localized.

Local 2 day snowfall accumulations in excess of 50 centimetres are possible between Strathroy and Grand Bend.

Many sections of Highway 21 are closed due to weather. Dashwood road/Huron 83 is closed between Grand Bend and Exeter. Sections of the 402 south and west of London towards Watford are closed.

###

Snow squalls cause weather conditions to vary considerably; changes from clear skies to heavy snow within just a few kilometres are common. Visibility will be suddenly reduced to near zero at times in heavy snow and blowing snow. Travel is expected to be hazardous due to reduced visibility in some locations. Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations. Road closures are possible.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve.

If the snow squalls isn't enough :doh:



 Extremely low temperature - Red from 2018-01-06 4:51:41 AM to 2018-01-06 8:51:41 PM


extreme cold warning in effect

A prolonged period of very cold wind chills continues.

An Arctic ridge of high pressure continues to bring cold temperatures and brisk northwesterly winds to Southwestern Ontario. Windchill values are expected to continue in the minus 30 to minus 35 range this morning and then continue in the minus 25 to 30 range until tonight. A few regions may remain in the Extreme Cold Warning until Sunday morning and then conditions are expected to improve.

###

Extreme cold puts everyone at risk.

Extreme cold warnings are issued when very cold temperatures or wind chill creates an elevated risk to health such as frost bite and hypothermia.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.cpio-tempetes-ospc-storms.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.

Cover up. Frostbite can develop within minutes on exposed skin, especially with wind chill.

Check on older family, friends and neighbours.

Keep emergency supplies in your vehicle such as extra blankets and jumper cables.

If it’s too cold for you to stay outside, it’s too cold for your pet to stay outside.

Record tying record low yesterday and a new record today.
Got hit hard with snow squalls, but it could have been worse.
30 miles east got slammed hard.

Last night on the way home I almost hit another huge drift, but managed to wheel around the worst of it.
Saw a wall of snow blowing from the right side, so I shifted to N, hard on the brakes and got the ass to slide ride, back to D, hard gas, snap the rear hard left and snaked around it.


Warming up the car at 2pm
Even have the cops on bear patrol.
Some petting horse had one of it's leg taken.

Supposed to be sunny and 50 here today. We finally got a little rain yesterday (about 1/4 inch) and it was overcast all day, so this morning I actually had to scrape the windows on the truck. First time all season.
