Blizzard Warning in Effect!
This is what it says on Environment Canada's website tonight for our region:
WarningsHeavy snowfall, strong winds and blowing snow will give blizzard conditions overnight and on Saturday.
This is a warning that blizzard conditions with near-zero visibilities are expected in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..listen for updated statements.
This system will give heavy snow, very strong northeast winds gusting up to 80 km/h, and blowing snow to regions along the Fundy coast. Blizzard conditions are forecast to begin near midnight in the west and spread east by Saturday morning where they will continue most of the day. Total snowfall amounts of up to 40 centimetres are expected in these regions by Saturday evening.
Nothing for it but to batten down the hatches and wait for it to blow in and blow itself out. Fingers crossed that the electricity will hold! I posted these snowy scenes to get us acclimatized for the big white-out.
Hopefully see you on the other side of the storm!
