FEB. PRECIP.

Feb. 18th – lovely snow cover

"Ottawa has received nearly 54 cm of snow this week, but get ready for a big melt in the capital."
We haven't had nearly that much, but we have enough! Yesterday it was -15 C. when we left the house. Today -5, and now, at noon, it is 5+!
Ottawa gets the Lake Effect Snow, moisture picked up from non-frozen lake surfaces.


Feb. 13th – 14cm, not as much as some people!

Feb. 12 – We did the driveway several times!

The roads were terrible! TrackMyPlow showed many trucks out there working.

Feb. 11 –a wee dump of snow & a warning


Feb. 9 – Temperature ups and downs


This morning our thermometer says -17 C. It fooled Daisy who went bounding out before she tested the waters, so-to-speak. I'm looking forward to Mr. Sun.

NASA Satellite is amazing!


Feb. 7th - Freezing rain warnings: total was 13.7mm. 

I collected the ice pellets, just for fun, and melted them down.
A school bus with 25 kids inside fell in a ditch in La Presentation, in the Monteregie, because of icy road. NO one injured @Global_Montreal pic.twitter.com/jVIWDsrf5y

It has hit Kingston around 2:00 p.m. Freezing rain hit Brockville at 3:00 p.m., Toronto has about 5 mm. Out west, B.C. has a dump of snow (60 cm: who has snow tires, there?!). New Orleans is a mess, with tornadoes.

Yikes... 

Feb. 5th


It's been a glorious start to the month. Cold enough to walk on the wetland. Wetland walkies: World Wetlands Day. A skiff of snow, here and there. The wetland water levels have gone done. When you take a step, you fall a bit.

Feb. 1st – Not bad. Jan. 31st it was -17 C. in the morning!
