As I am sitting here writing this post the wind is howling outside. It sounds like a train and it has been like this all through the night making for a difficult night to sleep. This is the Wind Warning that has been issued by Environment Canada:
Issued at 4:42 AM EST Saturday 3 March 2012
Very strong southwest winds continue today in the wake of a cold front.
A cold front associated with an intense storm system continues to move from west to east across Southern Ontario this morning. Very strong southwest winds of 60 km/h with gusts to 90 km/h have been reported in some locales and are forecast to continue today. Even stronger winds are possible in exposed areas along the shores of the Great Lakes, where sustained winds could reach 70 km/h and gusts may exceed 100 km/h. The strong winds are forecast to diminish by this evening.
We are very fortunate up here in Southern Ontario, as we are technically only being clipped with this nasty storm, the poor people in the southern States are the ones who have suffered and many lives have been lost; you can read about it here I can't start to imagine how frightened they were as the winds we are experiencing up here are making me very nervous.
The only good thing about this weather is that it has started to melt the snow. It's a day to hibernate but I have to go out later and do the grocery shopping with dh. Wish me luck!!
What's the weather doing in your neck of the woods?
