It only started an hour ago but it is really coming down. It is fine but heavy. The wind is already starting to pick up. By the time I get up in the morning we should be into the blizzard. Schools have all closed as well as all doctor and dentist offices. The malls are closed. Many businesses have already announced they won't be opening. Everybody is preparing for the worse. I haven't seen this happen in quite sometime. I am so glad that I can stay inside and wait for the storm to pass. I am going to head off to bed now before the strong winds start. They usually keep me awake. Happy mylotting. I will be around here all day tomorrow since there won't be much else to do. To those in the path of this weather system be safe. Hope you don't have to go out in it. Bye for now....

This sounds pretty awful. How many business days are lost each year due to bad weather? Your best guesstimate will do.

For the most part businesses don't close or they may close early. This is the first time in two years that I seen them not open at all because of this type of storm. So on average they may close early maybe two or three times of year. That would only result in losing a 3-4 hours each time.

@Happy2BeMe Thanks. I was wondering just how much time might be lost due to bad weather.

Good night and I hope that you sleep tight and not let the sounds of the strong winds wake you. I'm glad that you're home safe and sound and hope that you won't have to venture out in that mess tomorrow for anything.

Stay Warm. We have six more weeks of winter but it's already summer temps here. I am hoping for one or two more good snows though.

@Happy2BeMe We have only had one this year. I live in a weird state. We are never quite sure what we'll get from year to year. We've had summer time temps for most of winter, then one good snow.

@ScribbledAdNauseum that would be weird. We always knew we are going to get snow we just never know when.

I am glad you get to stay home tomorrow! I hung my laundry out today! That is a bit unusual in February in Alberta! But our turn could still be coming.

Take care of yourself and enjoy the snow from inside. We had freezing rain yesterday and now its snowing here too. Hubby went to the Y this morning and said the roads were terrible, I think I'm staying home today...
