Funny how weather is here. People going nuts over potential storm
including all the news outlets. Based on this mornings forecasts
it was over 20cm and blowing like crazy, although with a little look
I had a hard time figuring it out.

I just checked and currently 3 forecasts I follow.
Sat afternoon to Sunday morning.
Weather network 15-20 cm
environment Canada Sat. 2cm night 2cm
Global Sat to Sunday 2cm
Weather warming is gone.

So I will say the same as I do to the 96 people who asked me this week
what's going to happen.
Like everyone else I look at long range even though history has proven anything past 48 hours is waste
of time to pay attention to. I follow closer when 48 hours, start to map out plan for storm
At 20 to 30 hours out now, guess what plans are not too serious.
That said this could still change.

Lesson folks, eastern Canada is very different than most of the world
we get weather from 3 different weather patterns from 3 different directions here.
So makes it very difficult to predict weather especially more than 48 hours out.

Ok so Shubenacadie sam sees his shadow, none of the other rodents
on the whole eastern part of the US or Canada seen there's.
So they all get early spring ours is delayed.

So its simple, we have to take out the rodent and or the people who dragged him out.

Currently calling for 5 cm over 10 hours here, then
looks like 8-10 hours freezing rain, then 20-30 mm of rain.
on Friday. Could be a long messy day / night / day,


Based on past forecasts, hoping it changes again :)
it was different last night.

PEI waffles in the middle.... a more northerly track will bring rain, freezing rain bookended by snow. System staying south could mean 25+cm third overnight into Sat. Will be an interesting system to watch develop over the next 24 hours.
for you maybe, it adds to 20 to 30 hours with no sleep for me lol.
Last night it was starting at 1pm and flipping to rain by 1 am.
much better, I would be in bed by 5 am not to bad :)

But don't you get a week off between salting & paving?!
Do I no, does the work and money stop coming yes lol.
Thats when I fix everything, same as fall.
I take a week once in awhile, but get a week no.
Those weeks tend to be expensive, like everyone else, I have to pay for trip.
Unlike others, I make less money and pay people to do my job, so
tends to be pricey, that said I am still going on a cruise
I am sure I won't miss any meals LOL.

these types of storms really suck, this could be real long and very expensive.
12 hours of freezing rain will equal 15 ton of salt, 12 hours of snow will equal 3 ton.
This thing looks like it might go into rush hour, so it could get real fun lol.

I am hoping it warms up faster and flips to rain quicker. regardless
likely going to messy Friday morning.

I can hope, weather forecasters are not that reliable LOL.
lets hope they are wrong in a good direction.

Wife’s work was canceled so I haven’t been Further than the end of the driveway to bring garbage can in. Not to much snow here and a snow/sleet mix coming down now. Feet up now, on my second beer watching AC/DC Video in surround sound, it’s Happy Hour 😁🍺🍺
