A balmy 22°, on the way to the mid-thirties. We're going to get another 4-6" of snow this morning, also.

33F and rain - The predicted highs are never right anymore.  Yesterday they were 20 degrees off and that has been the norm lately. 

Be safe everyone!

Cold and clear here today. High of -6 C 21f with a windchill of -16c 3F. 3 small storms headed our way between now and Friday. Oddly they are all forecasted to occur overnight. the first 2 look like 4-6" of snow and the last one may be rain but they are not sure yet.

I was laying in bed wondering why the furnace had run for 20 minutes solid this morning so I got up and it was the wind!   Really howling this morning!  Furnace has not even been on.  

45F @ 5am.  I'm excited!!   That is warmer than the highest high since mid December - until yesterday.  Weather man been talking of a warm up and it finally hit.  Lost a lot of the snow yesterday.  Its good to see the ground again. 

Sunday's predicted high was supposed to be 53F - at least thats what they said all week.  By Saturday they had lowered it to 43F. Actual high temp. Sunday was 33F.  Monday they were calling for 43F and we had 52.  No complaints there.  Today they are calling for 58F.  We'll see.....

Good morning. It seems it will be warming up here a bit as well. The snow scheduled for tonight is supposed to change to rain now. Looks the same for the storms coming later in the week. Every one to 2 days we are getting a hit of snow or rain for the next bit. It's cold and clear right now. -10c 14F.

Good morning everyone! Its currently 31 F. On our way to 43 F today. The ice we got last night is not playing well. While carrying a stack of 2 L bottle on my dolly for delivery, I hit a patch of ice and caught a few cases in the ribs on my way down. Nothing like a great start to the day. Everyone be careful that has to deal with this. That's my rant for the day. Figured I would save everyone's morning ears from the choice words I already let out.

Morning guys. We got about 4" of wet snow overnight. I got up at 4:45 and got out the door early so I could take my time on the drive in to the city. The roads weren't great but it wasn't an issue as long as you slowed down and drove to conditions. I am driving a Mazda cx5 awd and this is the first winter I've had it. It has impressed me with it's capabilities. It seems to have at least as good traction as the Subaru forester I had and is a much better handling car. The Subaru could be a handful if it started to spin. It behaved like a RWD car and would kick the rear end out if you got too happy with the gas pedal.

I think it hurts worse today than yesterday. On top of that, I have about 14000 lbs to deliver today! This should make it feel better (extreme sarcasm).

Good morning all! Its currently 38 F. Heading to a 44 F high today. Its gonna be a little wet today with everything melting. Although still no sign of ground under all the snow. At least the ice is gone from most areas I have to walk in. Hope everyone has a good and safe day.

Eric

I have the CX9 and love it!! Traded a caddi SRX in for it and i like the Mazda much better except for the headlamps.. My only complaint.. Not bright enough .
