stupid snow. I have had enough of winter. I will say though, in the fall weather specialists predicted record amount snow falls this winter and they were right..
An intensifying low pressure system currently located near Colorado will track slowly south of the lower Great Lakes regions on Friday. Snow in advance of this system is expected to reach Windsor-Chatham regions near midnight and continue to spread east during the overnight hours and into Friday, and becomes quite heavy at times as the low pressure gets closer. In general total snowfall amounts with this storm at this time are expected to be 15 cm possibly reaching 20 to 25 cm in some locales especially over eastern shores of Lake Erie and near the saint lawrence river valley. Brisk north winds of 40 gusting to 60 km/h are also expected to whip up the freshly fallen snow resulting in low visibilities in blowing snow. The snow will taper off from west to east Friday afternoon when the low moves further east. Environment Canada will continue to monitor this developing storm system and warnings may be issued if the situation warrants.

Let's hunt down and kill the damn groundhog who said spring was just around the corner. Obviously a mean joke on his part
Jen i wish you luck at your open house, but the lucky kind!
I just hope that since we are having real winter that is lasting, we will get a real spring! No freezing temps in later april or may and a nice spring, not zero to hot and humid!

Let's hope this jump starts some labour over here!!! I'm getting sick of both snow and being pregnant!!
-- Ok, if even Sherry is sick of the snow, it's been a brutal winter!
I should apologize people, this system is my fault. I'll go hang my head in shame now.

"A winter storm watch for Windsor-Essex has ended. Environment Canada says the storm is tracking further south than it had originally anticipated."
Lets's hope it's accurate. I haven't heard from any other source though that we might not be getting hit again with snow.

It will be interesting to see how much snow we get.. Snow in itself doesnt make a warning, unless its a heavy snow warning, a winter storm watch has to have certain winds and temperatures and a snow rate I think of 10-15cm in 12 hours or something like that.
I hope it all goes south of us!
