It was snowing last night, but in the end it all came down as slush that then partially froze so I had a 1/2 mile skate in the dark to the station this morning.

Sounds like extreme sport - not the best way to start the day

From 43C on Sunday to 22C today, courtesy of a tropical cyclone up north. Heavenski.

We got about 4" up here and the roads were awful on the way in this morning. They plowed our street at about 6:15 while we were out shoveling the drive but by 7:30 there was already another 0.5" or more that had fallen, some of the main roads didn't look like they'd been touched.

It has rained overnight thank goodness. Much cooler today with some cloud cover.

I typed 3 different replies to this but decided against it. I thought they were hilarious though

You should have posted them all and we could have chosen the best. But anyway, it was a bit on the brisk side this morning, hence the hyperbole

Yeah, I've been keeping an eye on that for the last few days. Going to get quite bad towards Tuesday/Wednesday as if the 8" of snow on Sunday night isn't going to be pain in the arse enough.

Extended forecast shows early February climbing back into the 20s again so this should at least be only a short arctic dump.

It's been rather a weird week.

Tuesday, it was 0F, Wednesday was 20F, Thursday was 50F and today it's back down to 30F.

Most of the snow has melted, but there's a lot of ice around.

It has been so hot & muggy with a gusty hot wind over the past few days that I tried to sleep out on our back deck last night. That worked fine until the flippin' moon crept round the side of the house and illuminated everything bigtime.

Too hot really to do anything except flop.
