Just got the power back and fortunately only minimal damage.  My son was not so lucky.  A neighbor's tree crashed through his roof with one huge branch coming through the guest room (fortunately unoccupied at the time).  He has live power lines 4' above his front lawn.  We know so many people who have had terrible damage but are all safe.

Good to hear you and yours are safe, Anne, I know that's not true for everyone..

And we've been mostly below average since winter descended on October 20 and we have had snow since then, even though we had some melting a couple of days; now around a foot (variably) on the ground.. We got to somewhere below -20C the other night, but now are supposed to warm up again, possibly as high as 5C daytime this week, average now is 0C..

! My internet connection is not nearly good enough right now to try to see videos-- is this a serious effort?

The last few days we were several degrees above freezing, but now we have a week forecast with highs from -4  to -14, today through Thursday the coldest.. Snow forecast for 3 of 7 days, but doesn't look like it should be much (knock on wood!)

No, it is a parody and ironic work of students ;) (if I remember right)

Trond - I really enjoyed the video and was gullible enough to think it was for real.  However, even as a parody, it is well done and I have deep admiration for the people who made it - and aren't they a good looking lot?  Fran

That's good- I thought maybe with your recent rain the country was washing away  ;)

Fran, it has has ricocheted past days here!

Rumors say that somebody had seen the sun for 10 minutes yesterday! And today I saw it for myself as I had the sun in my back and an impressive rainbow in front when I drew home. However, we had gale force wind last night with heavy rain and a thunderstorm is due tonight. Still 8-11C though. The forecast says colder weather with some sun next week. I don't believe it before I see it :-\
