January weather - 2017

Jan. 31st 

Jan. 29th – a gentle snowfall

Jan. 28th – another wee skiff

Jan. 27th – a wee drift of snow

Jan. 24th – on it's way?

Poor Ottawa!

We have had ice pellets at 7:00 a.m., then it flipped from that to rain, to snow, pellets, snow!

Jan. 23rd – Tornadoes down south, we're in for snow.

Jan. 20th – looks like a swirling mess

Jan. 18th – A few cm snow, and then rain all night

I was worried about visiting my client. The radar showed something coming, the question: when! It was fine when I left. I was due to leave her place at 4:00, and at 3:45, the snow just dropped like a curtain. Big, fluffy flakes. Eventually, it changed to rain. The sidewalk is all ice.

Jan. 17th 

And here it comes! The question: will it be rain, snow, sleet or hail?! The blue is snow, the pink the ice rain, the green rain. Sigh.

Track My Plow shows a mess!


Jan. 15 

Poor Oklahoma. Freezing rain...

Jan. 14th–a cold one!

Jan. 10th – We'll see what this brings us!

Yesterday was amazingly cold, but sunny. I hauled some wood. Today, looks like some snow. Sure won't be rain!!!

Jan. 7th - 2.5 cm light snow

Jan. 6th – we cannot complain! 

Look at the Muskoka region... Lake Effect Snow! The winds pick up the moisture from the Great Lakes.

My friend, Jenn's dog in their snow!
We're just cold in southeastern Ontario. This morning it was -17 C. or so.

That was a bit of a mess. Trees are a mess, covered in ice rain and then snow.

Hydro out all over the region. Hydro Ottawa, and HydroOne (Ontario).

The patterns are interesting!
