That makes our current weather an event of a lifetime.
We have temperatures of minus 20 Celsius. We have a wind chill factor of minus 35. We have warnings of exposed skin freezing within minutes. Every road in 4 counties is closed. On the radio the list of closures was so long the announcer took a break (probably a bathroom break) and directed listeners to get the rest of the list from the website. The closure list included many firsts for my ears: The mall, a funeral home with a funeral cancelled (that makes for a great family story) Canadian Tire, hospitals, schools and stores.
What we do have, amazingly enough, is hydro. Not once over this long season of storms have we lost hydro. And so, we are warm. Today, I am baking
and weather watching.
Not a bad day for me at all. For all others, stay warm.
