Snow Budha

Snow Budha

Victoria BC is recieving up to 25 cms of snow today.

As we were gearing up for our flower count to tease the rest of Canada with, the snow started to fall.

It has shut down much of the city and even my garden Budha is taking a snow day. I love snow and am not complaining at all.

Barry's Response - Oh Victoria. Land of the Ice and snow. Just kidding. Actually by checking this interesting webpage by Environment Canada -

You will see that (out of all major cities in Canada), Victoria has the least snow and the mildest winter overall. It's also pleasant and sunny (more than the rest of BC) all year around.

shovel your roofs and tempos.

This is what I found when I returned from work yesterday.

People with large amounts of snow should remove as much as possible, and completely from those temporary shelters. Mine was set up in November and cleared each snowfall, but the latest was too much for it. We received approximately 70cm. of the white stuff, not even half thewas left on the Tempo with the winds.

Cheers.

Barry's Response - Thanks John. You can always count on Quebec for a search this site for good snow.

no power


(Calgary)

I have relatives in St. Catharines, Ontario who are enduring a third day without power due to the wind storms. Maybe some publicity would help.

Barry's Response - 51,000 Ontarians still without power after search this site for wind storm. That what the headline says. It's been several days now and initially 175,000 power customer were affected. The winds measured nearly 100 km per hour and one man was killed.

Thanks for your input.

search this site for more information now.
