Who will be my knight in shining armour? Give me a half hour's notice so I can put my war paint on, lol. Thanks for the kind thoughts!

I have plenty of food in, bats, but thank you for the kind thought - if I get desperate I will place an order with grocery gateway and they will deliver it.

Only been out once by car. Fortunately we can get by on foot while we are in the city...but can't stay out too long in these temps.
No, my son doesn't have a car (his g/f does but she works 3 jobs) but I am doing ok, I sent out for smokes (sigh, yes I know) via dial-a-bottle (well worth the $7 delivery charge) and I still have lots of food in from Christmas and then a friend stopped by tonight and dropped off a bottle of wine and some chocolate (what a good friend!) so I am all set!

Thanks for all the kind thoughts, they are very much appreciated.

Why did you ask, "Why would you want frozen milk?", as if you didn't understand?

I hadn't thought of grocery delivery but that is a great alternative for anyone who can't get out. Glad you've got a good friend to provide the necessities if life.

Because in olden days milk had cream on the top. I understood perfectly well thank you.

I wouldn't get too excited - more bad weather on it's way.

http://weather.gc.ca/warnings/index_e.html?prov=son

Sunday is expected to dawn with snow falling over most areas. As the deepening low approaches, the snow will become heavy over Southwestern Ontario Sunday afternoon and over the remaining regions Sunday evening. It appears the snow may change to some rain around Eastern Lake Erie and Lake Ontario as well as parts of Eastern Ontario later Sunday evening. There is also a threat of some freezing rain in these areas. It should be noted that any freezing rain that occurs will have virtually no impact on hydro for those areas impacted by the recent ice storm. The precipitation will taper off overnight Sunday, but persist into Monday morning over Eastern Ontario.

Current indications suggest that regions north of a line from roughly Leamington to London to Barrie to Pembroke will receive snowfall amounts of 15 to 20 cm. Amounts will likely be closer to 5 to locally 10 cm south of that line.

In the wake of the storm, bitterly cold west to northwest winds will return on Monday, producing blowing and drifting snow in areas which receive the most snow from the storm. Furthermore, intense snow squalls are forecast to develop off Lake Huron and Georgian Bay Monday and persist into mid week.
