Here’s the view at 3:00 pm:
You can see how far it’s blowing in onto the balcony . . .
You can see a bit farther, but not much . . .
I don’t know if the photo shows it, but the flakes are larger and blowing steadily from the North. It’s -4C, but -10C with the windchill and winds around 18km/hr, but west of here winds have been up to 80km/hr (50 mph). We have had about 8″ and can expect another 4-6″ until late on Friday. Visibility is down to zero at times on some of tbe freeways due to blowing snow, so hundreds of km of the Trans-Canada were closed early this morning. Directly west, near the Alberta-Saskatchewan border, lots of cars are trapped on both sides of a winddrift 100m long and over 1.5 feet deep.
So, please, all you parched people, we Canadians LOVE to share!!
Help yourself . . . 😉
