Yes, it is cold here. Yes, it is snowing here-again. No I will not complain. We have the news on and they are showing the bigger picture. This includes the bad snow that will hit our eastern provinces as well as much of the eastern seaboard of the US. This is a really big storm. For those of you in its path, please stay in and stay safe. Check on those that may need help. Get out the board games and keep yourselves busy or make a nice big batch of soup to enjoy together. Try to make the most of it, but above all please stay safe. I have no complaints here as I am not in the path of that terrible storm, but I am thinking of you. ~Photo is mine taken in our back yard a couple of years ago.

Thank you, we are fine, but I do worry about those out on the east coast of Canada and also parts of the US, they are in this terrible storm bomb.

@Hannihar I have a very dear friend on this site that I'm very concerned about as she lives out there and another one who recently bought a home out there and is getting ready to move out east, and I hope that her home remains in tact and safe for her to arrive in a few weeks from now. We have such great friends that we make here, its hard not to be concerned about them!

We've stayed in quite a bit recently, due to the cold and everything. We'll probably have to stay in for a little more.

Are you in the path of this storm as well? For once we are not, but we are kept busy with all of the lake effect snow bands that come across the Great Lakes.

@rebelann I remember that winter from 2012 to 2013, it was so brutal. My husband wants to drive up to Niagara Falls this weekend to check out what things look like there. I looked it up online and there are a lot of people flocking here to see what is actually an optical illusion because the mist that comes off of the falls is frozen, and parts of the American Falls are frozen, however there is still tons of water flowing at a remarkably fast rate below all of that.

We got about 40 cm of fresh snow from yesterday afternoon until very early this morning. And of course it blew because with this cold weather its such light snow. Tomorrow and Monday are supposed to be much closer to regular temperatures, so that will be a nice change. We're getting ready to try to drive up to Niagara Falls. With these temperatures the falls have become quite popular as there is ice where there usually is not ice. I am hoping that the roads are not too bad that we change our minds and turn around.

I missed the evening news, but they rerun it in the morning, so I'll see it then. My husband decided to surprise me when I got home from work by asking me if I'd like to go to Niagara Falls this weekend, so I've been looking for accomodations online. And that sucked up a lot of my free time this evening.

@Juliaacv going to Niagara falls sounds like fun. With all the cold I wonder how much is frozen

We are in the path of the storm but it is looking like we are going to get snow, then freezing rain and then heavy rain and strong winds. Should be a messy drive home after work. It hasn't started yet but it suppose within the next few hours.

We are getting pounded with snow today. It began in the early afternoon, and we've probably had about 10 cm, and are in store for more.

Just, time for folks in the path of this storm to stay home and keep warm. We are not in the path, but have been in the path of bad storms in the past.

No, we are not in the path of that particular storm, although there is one coming across from Lake Huron that is pounding us right now. But as bad as it looks here, I know that someone else, somewhere else is worse off and I do feel for them.

I'm thinking the same thing, I can put up with snow and plows, at least I don't have to worry about water coming up my street and into my basement...
