Got shat on big time. Just a foot, mind you, but some it was wet and
Now it's all blowy out there and most roads in and out of Sarnia are
There's a wee bottle of brandy I've been saving for an event just like
this, that and a couple of books I have been meaning to read.
The horror, the horror...
Ah the memories.
10F above and a foot of partly cloudy on the ground with more to come
thanks to 20 knot winds.
That's my Ohio home town's weather the past couple of days.
Meanwhile here in the land of fruits and nuts, it was 90F yesterday
but struggled to only make it to 85F outside my window today.
Not to worry, rain and temps around 60F by the weekend.
Still beats being up to your armpits in partly cloudy.
The local weather forecast is calling for up to an additional 2' of snow
by Wednesday morning. This is on top of the 3' - 4' we received last
week. The heaviest snow is predicted for an area a few miles northeast
of me but you know how unperdicable lake effect bands are.
NOAA weather discussion for the Buffalo area:
Well, ackshally, now that you mention it, Whitehorse is in the
Yukon's banana belt. It's in Wikipedia, so it's gotta be true.
Also, we are one of Canada's cities with the most comfortable climate.
Yup, up there with Vancouver & Victoria despite our cold, according to

Proof that any marketing scheme, no matter how assinine, can be sold
so someone, somewhere, for a lotta money. Visit beautiful downtown
tropical Yellasnow(tmLJ), buy a $5 home for just $759k! Located right
in the middle of Canada's Banana Belt.
Bright, always-sunny Vancouver, BC? OhhhhhhhhhK.
I guess that the drier winds are a lot more comfy than humid, heavy
snows, so I hope you enjoy it. I'll pass, thanks. <shudder>
LJ, who doesn't do "minus" weather aTall.
P.S: Is it true that many gays move to banana belts for the obvious
reason? <w,w,n,n, kwim?>
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Yeah, it's a pain (literally) when it's mostly too damned cold for it to
snow. Don't like it when it gets this cold, but at least it's easier for me
to get around. The only other advantage is that I get places faster in my
rush to get back inside somewhere that's warm.
Had to run a few errands yesterday, about four stops, heater in the car
wasn't blowing any hot air, til I was pulling back into my driveway.
Having a new oven delivered today, here's hoping the cord I took off the
old one will fit the new one and I don't have to out out all day.
The system will be down for 10 days for preventive maintenance.
You Canadians are going soft. In the old days, they would have just built
an igloo and burned seal blubber to stay warm. :)
Incidents like this are a perfect argument for carrying some basic emergency
supplies in your vehicle. Top of the list would be some warm clothing and a
sleeping bag. Also some emergency rations of some kind.

Some Hakkapeliitta 5's on a Subaru help too. We never venture out
without a full tank of gas, rations, clothing etc. That particular
stretch of road has bit many in the ass over the years, it is
notoriously bad... and goes bad fast.
Nice this morning though, warmed up the windchill to -9°F, I'm wearing

A good arguement for checking the weather and road reports too.
If you live anywhere in the south-western Ontario snow belt and do
not have to go out, STAY HOME. If you DO NOT live in the SouthWestern
Ontario Snow Belt, DO NOT GO THERE.
Some parts of the "classic" snow-belt have dodged the bullet so far -
the area around
Kitchener/Waterloo/Elmira/Elora/Fergus/Drayton/Cambridge and Guelph is
colder than cold, and slippery in spots from the slop we got over the
weekend - bur not much snow and reasonable visibility.
Looking out the window you'd think it was a good day for a drive.
If you MUST drive, carry warm clothes, keep the tank well over half
full, carry candles and a lighter, boots, shovel, flashlight, and
emergency rations. And for heaven's sake - SNOW TIRES!!!!!!!!!!
People initially didn't stop because of the amount of snow, they were
simply blinded by 60-70 Kph winds..THEN they got snowed in. You get a
wind, blowing from the North along the length of a still warmish lake
and those winds are going to bring shit... LOTS of it.
