I almost forgot, but Happy Groundhog Day!!! Six more winter weeks!

Yes, indeed, the news is that Punxsutawney Phil is predicting six more weeks of winter. But then, it’s easy for that rodent to say that, given it will take that long for New England to dig itself out from under all their snow. Have fun trying to clear the streets for the victory parade, Boston.

Be glad you aren’t in Buffalo — that place is buried in snow!!

The one thing I miss about life in southern Ontario — watching coverage of lake effect snowstorms on Buffalo TV. Today, the place got totally buried in the white stuff — up to five feet of snow. Parts of western NY are under a state of emergency. Channel 2 from Buffalo has live coverage here….

Sadly, expecting to be snowed right under around here tomorrow

Weather update: currently I am watching the Winnipeg-Calgary CFL game being played in Calgary in a heap of snow. Regrettably, we are in store for exactly the same thing. Our own area is looking at heavy snow tomorrow.We are looking at possibly 10 cm tomorrow, and northwest SK is under a snowfall warning. Hopefully, it…

SNOWED UNDER IN FROZEN SASKATCHEWAN

Yes, the snow has finally arrived. As an aside — no, I have not booked my winter getaway vacation yet, but I probably should start thinking about it.

SNOW WATCH 2013: AHEM. NO SNOW HERE YET

Well, so much for the forecasts. This is what you get when Environment Canada understaffs its Saskatchewan operation. Actually, though, southern Alberta is under a snowfall warning right now. The live cams from Alberta are pretty depressing looking, with these places covered in snow. Well, as far as I am concerned they can have their…

SNOW WATCH 2013: EXPECTING THE WHITE STUFF BY TOMORROW

I hate to be the bearer of bad news for folks in Saskatchewan and Alberta, but I have it on pretty good authority from the weather forecast-type people that we’ll be getting snow by tomorrow.  My area is forecast for a 60 percent chance of flurries. Darn it! Well, having no snow was fun while it…

BIG BREAKING NEWS: WINTER IS NOT HERE YET

I was at the local supermarket today and noticed some people openly speculating on whether it will snow here. I’ve noticed this kind of talk going on for the past several days here in this increasingly miserable-looking province of Saskatchewan. I know it’s getting cold and the skies have been forbidding, but it’s always like…

SOME WEATHER THOUGHTS FOR MID-OCTOBER

We are now deep into mid-October, and while the weather around here in Saskatchewan is certainly colder than it was before, so far the snow is staying away and that is really the one thing I care about. I can handle a little cold, but snow? Well, that thought is just too depressing. Other places,…

SNOW IN TUCSON TODAY. I REPEAT: SNOW IN TUCSON

These groundhogs who forecast an early spring should be fired. UPDATE (Feb 24): Hope everyone in the Midwest and the Northeast also enjoyed “Storm Q.”  What a mess. Coming soon: Winter Storm Rocky.

I ADMIT IT, I HATE WINTER

My long-pent-up rant railing against the bad local winter weather we have had, with all this miserable cold and snow weather, is now up.

WHAT A MESS IN BOSTON

In related news, an official inquiry has been called into those botched groundhog predictions of an early spring. Story on the Boston blizzard mess here.
