The Weather Outside Is Frightful...

We are in the grip of a major winter storm. Last night the forecast was for 45 cm of snow ~ a record amount for the city at this time of year. This morning, we awoke to less than anticipated, but it seems that the worst of the weather is just beginning.

We did venture outside to try to get some photographs, but with near blizzard conditions, it was never going to be easy. We discovered that the snow is deep enough to make walking difficult, as none of the paths have been cleared. They are forecasting 3-4 cm of snow an hour for the next 5-6 hours, with ice pellets and freezing rain to come.

Whilst we were outside, we heard thunder! The weather outside really is frightful, so we headed back indoors as fast as the conditions allowed. Our plans for the rest of the day involve keeping warm and dry and enjoying Sunday lunch.

Goodness, you did get some winter weather there! This past weekend it was so bitterly cold. We ventured out to take a walk but did not go as far as we usually do, just too, too cold. Frost is so thick and heavy it looks like snow! Happy week--keep warm & toasty! ((HUGS))
