Hello Everyone  :)   Thought I'd drop a note to let you know we're in the midst of a huge snowstorm (already got about 14cm just since early this morning), and it looks as though it's going to carry on as predicted until the end of today.   It's really blowing around too.   The company I hire to keep my driveway and walk up to the front door has already been with his huge snowblower once (around 9:30am), but it looks as though he'll be back again later as it's filling up again quite rapidly.
Toronto area (does that include you Jaywit?) are saying it will be the worst snowstorm in the last 5 years, and my niece's husband said he couldn't see out of his office windows in downtown Toronto, so I guess it's pretty bad all along the Hwy. 401 corridor.   It's hitting the North Easterly States very hard too.   
I won't be going anywhere for today anyway, that's for certain.  Cold too, as the temp. is only minus 5C at Noon.   Hope everyone is having a milder and better day than here... ;D ;D

 ;D ;D ;D  Thanks loads Bill!   ;D   The snow stopped here around 3:15pm and we've officially had 25cm today    I used one of your shovels to get rid of some of it from my walk up to the house later this afternoon, but will have to wait for my snowblowing company to do the drive again tomorrow morning.  Hope he waits until the road plow had been by or he'll have to come back again to get rid of that lot too!   ::)

Didn't know you lived in the G.T.A.  KennethO....stay cool and have a game of pool.  That's good exercise too!   ;D

Ha-ah!!   So you're going to be a temporary SnowBird, eh, Kennetho?   Hope you have a lovely ten days of sunshine and warm temps.   8) ;D

London (Ont.) is now becoming famous for having the least amount of winter sunshine.... in the bottom 20 places in Canada!   How's that for a reputation?

A few years ago.
We booked for Destin but ended up in Pensacola,same time of the year.I have pictures on the beach with anoraks on,the white sand, could, and has been mistaken for SNOW.
It can and does get cold in fl.
Hope it is warm,a good full day can be spent at the Navy Air Museum.
