This is what I’m going to be driving in when I get closer to home…
It’s going to be a loooooooooong drive. Wish me luck!
I just got off the phone with BIGDADDY and he said that driving Munchkin to school was horrible. The roads are bad and visibility is horrible.
Well it’s been snowing for about 30 minutes now. And from what I can see out my window, it’s pretty windy too.
It’s 8am Friday morning and I’m at work. I’ve been here for 1 hour. And becuase I left early enough…it only took me 45 minutes to get in! (Note: usually takes a hour)
Supposedly the snow is to have started already. Maybe Halton Region is getting some already as the Niagara, Hamilton and Halton regions are to be the worst hit.
Buses (and some schools) are canceled in many areas due to the fact that they don’t know how bad things will be this afternoon. Policy states that if they pick kids up they have to drop them off too. Oh well, BIGDADDY is driving Munchkin to school.
So the bad snow is supposed to happen between 9am and 4pm with snow falling at 2-4cms per hour!
(I’ll update again if anything exciting happens.)
Warm outfits for playing in the snow?
Check. (Sand toys optional)
Children wanting to help clean up massive amounts of snow?
Okay…bring on the 50cms of snow!
Environment Canada said southern Ontario is on the brink of a “snow-mageddon” — a term used by the government agency to describe what’s coming the region’s way.
Two more significant winter storms are about to hit the region, one on Friday and another on Sunday.
Some areas may receive a combined total of about 50 centimetres of snow.
Dave Phillips, a senior climatologist with Environment Canada, told 680News that in this case the term “snow-mageddon” is no exaggeration, and added that back-to-back-to-back snow storms can wreak havoc.
“It’s often the three events in a row that could bring you to your knees — no places to put the snow, you’re running out of adrenaline and it becomes a bigger event,” Phillips said.
On top of Monday’s accumulation, the GTA could receive 15 to 20 centimetres on Friday, with another blast expected on Sunday.
But, the good news is that Torontonians will finally get a white Christmas.
