Rick; a range of stuff - helicopters, light aircraft, forestry machines, construction machines and ag machines. Anything for a buck ;).

We get the tail end of the lake effect squalls here in London, and they can be incredibly local. I've left my house in west London under clear skies, no snow on the ground, and driven through terrible snow storms on the 401 before breaking out into the sun and green fields again at Woodstock, about 65 klicks away.

When my wife worked for the Thames Valley School Board, they covered a fairly large area, including London and several surrounding rural townships. They would call a "snow day" when they couldn't get into their headquarters building in downtown London, even when we had blue skies and no snow out here in the 'burbs.

Snow here is picking up now, but from the radar it looks like Parry Sound and area is getting a heavy hit. Check out their radar. http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/radar/index_e.html?id=WKR

It doesnt quite get the details of my area but its an interesting view of what can be headed our way when these "Colorado Lows" develop like this system that just past us.

Rain I can handle, Snow needs a plastic leaf rake and a ladder to clear the Dish. We're supposed to get rain soon of course.

Well........

After digging out from the 14" snowfall we had this week, now the temps have plummeted........
It's about 0f here now.....
And the kitties say.....'brrrrrrrrrrr'.

Good thing they are strictly indoor kitties.

Had to kick in the furnace for the first time this year to supplement the heat from the crunchers and keep the house toasty for the kitties.

It was supposed to rain yesterday. Hard. Yet, not a drop. Supposed to rain today too. So far nothing. If the local weatherman has to say something other than "mostly sunny skies" they panic and get it wrong.
