Hi Penny in NY

That was with the windchill factor Penny.  It was -13C by the time I left work yesterday aft.  We're expecting 20 cm of snow, followed by freezing rain and then rain today.  Temps supposed to be 4C by this aft.  We have had a few snowfalls, couple of inches each time but within a day or 2 its all gone.  Noticed crocus and other minor bulbs up half an inch or so last night and some bulbs actually half out of the ground.  Will try and push them in this weekend as its supposed to warm up more.  Our winter so far has been very mild - hope it continues till spring.

Think Rochester is on the lake across from Toronto and not far from Buffalo.  We've been seeing reports on TV about the snow and weather in both Toronto and Buffalo.  Strange they haven't closed the schools.  They're the first to be closed here.  In anticipation of today's weather forecast, many of the rural schools are closed.  They can get the kids to school safely, but not sure if they can get them home safely.

Have a good weekend.

Hi there, Penny -- Nova Scotia is worse off than we are, with
(-40*) -- for we only got down to (-22*) today. Practically no 
visible precipitation, but there's ice underfoot everywhere. 

My son in Rochester reports (-37*) and it hasn't stopped snowing 
for 7 days. They closed all the malls but not their community 
schools! In the whole suburb, only one restaurant remained open, 
Appleby's, which managed to get mobbed in spite of the hazardous
driving. I don't know if that's a sign of cabin fever, or of

Hope your electric wires hold up...!
