-17.8 C (- 0.04 F) at 7:56 AM. SSE winds at 17 kmh. There will be a low of -16 C for today!! This is what the weather station says; however, as you can see presently it is -17.8 C!! A 10% chance for precipitation with overcast skies.
Dogs have been at their dog sitters during our vacation to Costa Rica. Picked up Simba at her sitter on Thursday afternoon. Sitter was having his roof shovelled to remove the heavy accumulation of snow, his popcorn ceiling was cracking. Went to Edson Saturday to pick up Carlos from step sons. Hellish trip, couldn't do more than 80 kmh on the Yellowhead and met 10 vehicles in the ditch. Some drivers wouldn't even slow down after seeing this dangerous situation. On the way back there was 5 cars in the ditch. Even the semi trucks were driving quite slow during the night trip.
Edmonton has received twice the snowfall at this point of the winter than the average.
