Plenty of rain and potentially some wind coming our way today and throughout the week. Dig out your Sou’Wester and gumboots.

I got a message from my relatives in St. Catherines ONT today… 51cm (almost 2 feet) of snow over the weekend… much of it blown into gigantic drifts.

We’ll be getting about the same, just in liquid form. 😉

UDPATE: 11AM: There will be a brief interruption in weather data from 11AM until about 12PM this morning as I update the software and run through some other small changes. Cheers. Enjoy the rain!

UDPATE: 12PM: Updates all done, looks good. If you go into the Archive/Almanacs section you’ll see some historical data there. I’ll be adding to that over the next few weeks.

  1. ya it got pretty wild last night… it’s hard for me not to notice it when it’s trying to batter down the south facing window right above the head of my bed!
    good fun!

  2. I slept through it too Eve. My husband got up about 1:30am to the power outage (fire alarm beeps). He said it was blowing good!
