I hope you all are able to stay warm and dry as you brace for even more cold/snow in the next few days.  It's a different story here in Northern California where we are desperate for rain and snow in the Sierra Mountains.  Drought and water rationing measures appear to be on the horizon unless we get lots of rain and snow in the next two months or so.

It was 0F (-18C) in Toronto this afternoon and warmed up to 16F (-9C) in the evening. More snow is coming. We got something called "ice quakes" - weather phenomenon caused by ice expanding in the ground with a loud "bang" noise.

Alexandra, I wish you some warmth and sun,

And Kelly for you some rain or snow.

 For Alexandra  no more of this snow by the ton

And Kelly some rain to make the rivers run.

Here, down below the equator

We're having heatwaves, fire and drought

It would be great to have a lady regulator

Who would sort this problem weather out!

I am used to pretty mild winters, but the forecast for monday is minus 3....in teens now. Alexandra, I cannot fathom your canadian temps. However, when it's near 100 here in the summer and very humid, I'll bet you are amused!

We got about 18 inches of snow.  It was COLD here yesterday but warmed up a bit today.  Yesterday at high tide the ocean was PISSED and closed alot of roads.  The waves were coming right up over the beach walls..  Very cool...

I can't imagine what many of you are going through with the snow and cold!  Brrr!  I wish we could get some (not a lot!) of your weather in our neck of the woods and perhaps Rose feels the same way!
