Around Vancouver, BC, production of a movie starring Harrison Ford was held up because it wasn't stormy enough, putting production about 10 days behind schedule. The Vancouver scenes called for bad weather, so producers had to bring in rainmaking machines to put around the house. Further, they had to relocate to different rooms in the house to avoid the sunshine coming through the windows.

it looks like the storm will pass the SE of the Northern Edge but give southeastern Manitoba and north western Ontario blizzard conditions.
Luckily for me as we've put our snow clearing man on standby until next winter.
I'm having to shorten my daily walks with Abbey. I think she's developed arthritis and after a long running in the snow she comes home limping. It's sad to see her climb the basement stairs favoring one leg. On her last visit to the vet the vet guesstimated her age to be around 10 years.

Hi Plapman, I am Shirley from Virginia. Just saw your post over on Bug's blog about the bird calls and thought I would hop over here and check out your blog!

I am guessing you are like the rest of us just trying to shoo winter away and bring on spring!

I like your radar and would love to try posting my local radar. Is it difficult to do?

Hope Abbey gets her strength back. What kind of dog is she?

Have a great day! We are having a beautiful spring day today. Headed out for my afternoon. Stop by my blog when you have a minute.

Sorry to hear Abbey's getting like the rest of us, Tony! Hopefully when it warms up, all of her joints and tendons will loosen up, and she'll get around better!

Glad to see the blizzard missed you!
