December weather

Dec. 30

The total rain was 57.4 mm. Snow: 18cm. Dec. 31st was sort of drizzly rain, and hard to judge. I can't get to the rain gauge until I do some more snow shoveling. I'd put it away as I had anticipated snow.

JB tells me there was thunder and lightning at 4 a.m., and Annie growled at it, as she does!

Texas tornadoes, again... this time, 11 are dead.

For those travelling the 401 east of Kingston: detour to Prescott.

Eastbound traffic on Highway 401 is being rerouted at Maitland late Sunday morning.
That was some weather! Freezing rain, and about a half inch of rain, on top of the freezing rain. The trees tip over until the ice melts. More disasters in the US, with tornadoes.

Hydro outages across Ontario.

What a mess out there! Our satellite went out, but not our power. We had 15.24 mm (0.6") of rain.
