An Update on the Northern Edge

By: plapman , 12:06 PM GMT on February 08, 2013

Today will be cloudy with a 40% chance of flurries late this morning and early this afternoon. There will be some localized blowing snow this afternoon as the wind becomes southerly at 30 km/h gusting to 50 near noon. Today's high will be -5C 23F. Tonight will be overcast. The southerly wind at
30 km/h gusting to 50 kmh will become light this evening. The overnight low will be -9C 16F.
------------------------------------------------- ---
I decided to give an update on my daily walks with Abbey.
We're still doing our daily trek on the prairie. That dog will not let me forget that I need my exercise. Yesterday she found a bunny to chase and came back panting.
Everyone I've spoken with is getting tired of this winter. It's either very cold or snowing.
It seems that I just get the driveway cleared and we get another inch or so of snow. That isn't enough to bring out the blower so it's slowly getting packed down. I hope it does,'t leave big ruts come spring.

Good Afternoon, Tony!

Seems like much of that snowy Canadian arctic air mass, that's been engulfing your area and surrounding regions, has decided to move its way down towards us and meet up with a warm front eminating from the Gulf of Mexico. ARGH! The U.S. Weather Channel, for some bizzare reason, has decided to name this potentially hazzardous blizzard, "NEMO". When all is said and done, by early tomorrow afternoon, NEMO could leave behind about 2 feet or more of snow before heading for Nova Scotia. Holy S'Nemogeddon!

Hope that these miserable snowstorms will end soon for those of us who must now remain confined to our igloos. Boy, the price we now must pay for ole Punxsutawney Phil to declare an earlier than antcipated springtime! Can't wait till the real deal (SPRING) comes to fruition!

May you stay safe, healthy and warm, good buddy!

Glad you're able to get out!

Good Morning. Something about February being the longest month of the year. Atleast it feels like it in the snow places.
Belly rubs to Abbey.

OK, friends! Here's a link to a blog entry posted by a nice woman living up in Yellow Knife. There's winter, and then there's winter. Life truth #832: When the propane gels, it's too cold for me!

Don't those dogs look happy, though? I believe they're the ones who pulled the sled to bring the Christmas tree home. ;)

Good morning Tony. We just had a bout of ice rain during the night with a dusting of snow on top. Should be interesting to see how many really go into work today or if they will take the day off and start the wknd early. When I went to bed at 2 AM, there had not been anything here yet. It's calm out at the moment but if the winds start up, it could be hard pressed for tree branches and telephone lines with the weight of the ice on them. We only got about an inch of snow on top of the ice pellets so although it looks pretty out at the moment, it could be slippery for commuters. My street is always one of the first to be sand and salted because its the main through fare from the highway going North to the centre of town and on to the 401 again.

Anyway stay warm, stay well and try to cope. Mush is having the winter blues too with this crazy weather. I guess it gets all of us down.
