No question we had a massive snowfall today but it has nothing on the unbelievably heavy snowstorn we had in 2016. Not only did we have 51cm in 2016 but it was the wet heavy stuff. It felt like shovelling concrete! Today's light fluffy stuff was enjoyable in comparison.

Let's also be happy we had our LRT running in its cozy little downtown tunnel all day today. Feb 2016 was a different story....

I heard there was a lawn mower out cutting grass today in Downtown Vancouver.
A bit too much snow in Castlegar for that yet.

It has been cool in Japan recently, daytime highs around 5 to 10 and lows around 0, but the sunshine has been nice!

Some shots from the past two weeks:

Overcast. Waiting for the rain and wind to really pick up. The seagulls are preparing to head out to sea.

+2C and partly cloudy in Moncton at 8 AM. The temperatures will be falling throughout the day, reaching -13C overnight.

All streets and sidewalks are sheets of ice. They hadn't been fully cleared from the previous nor'easter, and, although we only got about 5 cm from the most recent storm, the snow was packed down by subsequent rainfall which froze on contact. Portions of Highway 1 between Moncton and Saint John are closed due to icing. Something similar happened about two years ago, and the ice could not be dislodged from the pavement (it was called armour ice at the time), and the highway was virtually impassable for about five days..........

I was not aware there were plow trackers for cities. Just found out yesterday. Kind of cool. Would be useful if you planned on visiting someone.

Photo taken on Autoroute 50 in Gatineau during yesterday's snowstorm:

https://twitter.com/Le_Pofin/status/...794496/photo/1

Interesting storm total differences.

Ottawa got 48 cm but the stats for Gatineau say 33-35 cm.

And of course, no snowstorm would be complete without my neighbour and I helping a damsel in distress stuck in a snowbank. It finally happened yesterday evening, like clockwork.

Rain, wind and warm temperatures melted most of our snow in Downtown Halifax.

Currently Sunny and 5 C downtown.

Shovelling this compacted stuff at the end of the driveway is almost as bad as doing the entire driveway with the fluffy stuff.

The sun is shining, the snow has stopped, the streets in Uptown Waterloo are still unplowed, and I just made ginger carrot muffins.
I remember the blizzard of ‘78, maybe that’s the year you were thinking of? I was in grade 8, and we had snow drifts that went up over the roof of my one floor grade school. Cars and trucks were stuck all over the city here and in Detroit. That was definitely the most snow I have ever experienced.

Partly cloudy today with a chance of flurries this morning, high of 0C. Currently snow free in the area.

Cloudy, windy, and 2 degrees at just before 11am. Rain will be starting some time this afternoon, a high of near 5 degrees expected.

It's a shame there isn't a central Toronto measurement station anymore - I would hazard a guess that the areas closer to the lake got significantly more than 33cm. Still digging out here, and the side streets near me remain pretty treacherous. Our car isn't going anywhere for a bit.

From last night:

From last night:





According to Environment Canada, Toronto Downsview recorded 45cm, and EC weather spotters in DT Toronto measured 40-48cm depending on the location. Pearson Airport was on the low end, downtown was more likely in the 40-50cm range.

Wow, if it's not the West Coast getting slammed by Winter it's the East. This Winter isn't giving any part of the country a break.

A mix of snow and rain in the Interior the next couple of days but after what we got in November and December it down right feels like Spring.
