You Said How Cold?


On our way to Halifax yesterday.......


Even though the sun was shining, the wind was blowing snow across the road 
from an adjacent lake.


The wind-chill temperature was -20C!


But it was refreshing!!! lol (just couldn't resist!)

  3. Yup, VERY refreshing! :)

    The weather is pretty much the same way here, and we're having a snowstorm today. I woke up to a real winterland this morning, and the snowfall isn't done yet!

  8. And your temperature is dropping, Jim ~ according to my husband who follows weather all over the world where extended family and friends are living! I know you aren't supposed to get the snow accumulation of Boston, but that nor'easter looks dicey for Nova Scotia with the wind and temperatures. Stay safe! We get the blowing snow across the roads fairly often in Colorado when there is snow. We call them ground blizzards ~ it's freaky because they're only about 1-2 feet high and very swirly. Gotta go! Bye!

    1. Hey Louise! Now we know who to ask for our weather! Thanks Terry!!
      We are going to get hit tonight and all day tomorrow.....lots of snow, just like the old days! We have a guy with a plow ready to clear the driveway whenever he can get here. We just got back from city and the shops are jammed with people stocking up!
      I like the look of those ground blizzards....thanks.
