Snow Day

The snow is still coming down hard in Hamilton and Ancaster. Right now I couldn't get to work if I wanted to. Our road hasn't been plowed.

Winter storm warning in effect for:

City of Hamilton
Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

Winter storm continues today into tonight.

A weather system tracking south of the Great Lakes has brought a significant snowfall areas near the west end of Lake Ontario. Strong and gusty northeasterly winds are picking up extra moisture from Lake Ontario, resulting in snow heavy at times for many areas today into tonight.

A further 5 to 10 cm of new snow are expected today, with perhaps 2 to 4 more centimetres tonight across the region.

Reports of 20 to 30 cm of snow in the Hamilton area have already been received by Environment Canada as of early this morning.

Strong and gusty northeasterly winds will whip up the freshly fallen snow resulting in widespread very low to at times nil visibility in blowing snow.

Dangerous winter driving conditions are expected to continue today and tonight. Travel is not recommended.

The snow will end by Wednesday morning winter storm moves away to the northeast.

Consider postponing non-essential travel until conditions improve. There may be a significant impact on rush hour traffic in urban areas.
Stay warm and knit lots today.

Oh, my. I hope you thaw out soon. Yes, it's a great day to sit home and knit by the fireplace. That's what is on my agenda! One day warm here, one day cold. I can knit on either. ;)
