        Sweet! My mommy grew up in Montreal so I hear snow stories all the time. My wife doesn't like snow, she keeps giving me trouble about being half Canadian (my mother is still a Canadian citizen).
        Why do I *always* have to be the calm one?
        Note to self: first spell check then post.

                It disgusting out! I'm sure there will be at least 100 bumper humps. There's already been one fatality

                The snow is sticking to the grass but not the roads (at least not that I can see, residential areas might be different story)

                And they still keep telling us its going to be 21, 22 degrees on Thursday and Friday LMFAOOOOOO yeah right I'll believe it when I'm suntanning on the balcony

                          almost

                          Going to get chinook winds today. High of +11C - still below norms for this time of year but by the weekend back to norms high teens, low 20s maybe. just saw 7 day forecast looks good next week nice 22 23 degree days.

                          Chinook winds in September, what a rip off!!! Chinooks in winter can change the temps from -15 to +15 in the snap of a finger! So why isn't it 31 instead of 11??? hehehe

                          What's happening with you Harve? Things getting dicey yet? I have the TV on, I will keep watch throughout the day, and my thoughts will be with all of you.

                          Its -1 with ice fog right now in the city. Fog is lifting I can see the fire station again lol

                            I spent all yesterday morning skating around on the rural highways outside Calgary repodning to MVAs. First one came in a little after 0630, had to bring the helicopter in for it, and a few more happened in the next 90 minutes or so, until the sun had been up long enough to take the thin layer of ice off the roads. :P
