Today will start cloudy with a 60% chance of flurries early this morning then clearing this afternoon. The wind will be northwest at 30 km/h (19 mph) becoming light this morning. Today's high will be near -8C(17F).
Tonight will be partly cloudy with a 30% chance of flurries. The wind becoming northwest at 20 km/h (12 mph) overnight as the temp falls to -10C(14F).
------------------------------------------------- ----
I never took Abbey out for her walk yesterday but I did get the broken belt removed from the blower. I was going to replace it but the bolts that have to be removed are inside a black area and are colored black. I couldn't see a thing inside the dark hole where the bolts are hiding. I guess I'll have to wait until I get a hand.
Yesterday's snow did pass north of me. :) I sure don't need an Alberta Clipper passing through now that the blower is down.
WE sure lucked out here. I see Alberta and the east coast both experienced heavy snow.
I was talking with the NFLD daughter the other day and she said it was colder than normal. I told her that when I was there I brought a suit case full of sunny Manitoba weather but left with a suitcase full of their winter. I also told her that the only way I'd return it was for her to fly me back to Newfoundland. :) Winter on the prairie sure has been mild this year.

Afternoon Tony, the snopw flurries we were threatned with not in evidence, clear temp has gone from -11C to 4C in the past three hours, gotta luv it.

You guys will have drought to contend with rather than the spring floods, did you get enough snow cover to get spring planting underway?

Have a good one.

Good morning guys....its going up to a balmy 60F here today but the wind is going to take out any enjoyment it offers...Had to watch the door this morning when I fed Smudgie so it would not slam open against the porch railing and break the glass. Guess it helps for kitties to be close to the ground so they don't blow away in winds like that. No use trying to do any yardwork today...Just too windy.

Already have some of my chores done, now to grab a coffee and start my day. Have a safe and happy day on the Prairie. Yes those winds are probably right as far as wind speed. I know its not that far off here today either.

Morning Tony:
Lately I've found I need good light to do any tinkering. I try to carry an LED headlamp at all times but I lose them often. I buy those little push button LEDs that clip on your key chain.
T'other day I picked up a flashlight with a couple of LED modes, a hanger and a magnet built in. $6 including batteries.
I'm sure this is a typo but this is what "The Weather Network" had up for Nanaimo earlier:
Wind : SW 37km/h
Wind gusts : 119km/
