Re: [Weather] We Have A Snow Event

Still snowing here in River City. And it's a Snow Day. School buses are cancelled. #21 is closed between Port Elgin and Goderich.

What are the temps like up your way? -13C here and its definitely a "turn the seat heaters on so you don't freeze to the seat" kind of day

Good god, lucky for the resident famous fuzzball that it isn't Ground Hog Day yet. Only way you'd get Wiarton Willie out in weather like that is to grab the little fuzzball by the nexk from his burrow & yank

Now -17C with wind chill of -23C at Wiarton. Perhaps this will cause Willie to expire. Happened before.

If that happens, I'm sure they'll find another poor groundhog that will be violently waken from his deep slumber.

Ah yes, the infamous "stiff" replacement Willie.

Last week the Associated Press published what may be the most bizarre caption correction to have ever moved on the wires. AP corrected the spelling of the late Wiarton Willie the Groundhog's name, but more significantly, they also had to explain that their photographer had been lied to when he took a photo that purported to show the recently departed creature in his coffin. Apparently the real late Willie had been dead so long, and was so badly decomposed when his handlers tried to roust him for Groundhog Day, that they used an older stuffed groundhog as a stand-in for their photo of Willie's wake.

Yes. The person who found Willie (he stunk) and who did the substitution is a friend of mine.

Poor fellow, him and the ground hog.

Down to -15ºC at the moment, a cold alert has been issued for the city and surrounding area.

That's nothing. Check out the overnight temp and windchill in Ottawa.

Haha, your overnight low will be lower than the lowest temperature ever recorded down here.

LOL. We have real winter here, unfortunately.
