  1. Wait where do they not use parking meters? My city still has them...
  2. That was pretty crazy, lots of heavy rain and lightning. Looks like all the wind and hail stayed to the North but I'm not about to complain, that was wilder than 90% of the storms last summer.
  3. It's nothing compared to most on the forum but we finally cracked 65 in London at 10:30, feels amazing. Previous monthly record was 64.
  4. I almost impulse bought one of those to ride on the unplowed trails of my city, kind of glad I didn't after the winter we had xD
  5. Holy crap 19 is crazy, I was up in Collingwood and they were actually the first to tag 10 Celsius today at 7 AM, maybe because of the downslope wind off the escarpment? It was 13 and sunny basically all day, saw multiple people skiing in T-shirt and shorts.
  6. It'll be interesting to see how my local ski hill fairs during this, the base is already dicey so I dunno if they can even stay open until March... Why oh why did I buy a pass.
  7. D, December was pretty nice but that only made January even more dissapointing. I'd go as far as to say it was one of the most miserable stretches of weather I've ever seen, we got absolutely no sunlight and it just alternated between cold and dry and mild with stratiform rain. Absolutely nothing interesting happened after the one decent snowsquall on the 8th. All the warmth and thunderstorms were to the South and West, all the snowsqualls were to the North, all the ice and snow was to the East.
  8. Pretty sad that this has been accurate since December...
  9. Yup, I'm glad I'm west of the ice storm potential but another boring rain event is the last thing we need this winter.
  10. All in all YXU finished with around 15" of snow and almost 2.5" of rain compared to average snowfall of 19.4" and average rainfall of 1.3". Mean temp was 28.4, 6.5 degrees above average, although daily highs were a bit closer to average. The cold stretch and snowsqualls early on padded the stats, but the second half of this January was just abysmal.
  11. Where did you get that stat? I'm curious as to how much YXU got because it felt like even less than that :c At least it's finally clear out.
  12. Light? In the sky? Does not compute.
  13. Well I just hope the GFS is right about this one, doesn't have much of the subforum crack the freezing mark with that storm and the upper level pattern looks much nicer. I agree that the short term isn't going to be that great though, very little chance for significant snow except in the lake belts. I'm not even expecting much in London, looks like it'll be more of a WNW pattern to favor Huron and Grey County (again).
  14. Nah I get it, I love snow but winter is seriously bad for my mental health, it's the lack of sunshine that causes it which is especially bad downwind of Lake Huron. I should move somewhere like Denver or Santa Fe where it's usually sunny and mild but you can go to the mountains for snow.
  15. We had freezing fog in London one night, but it wasn't dense enough to do anything cool like that :/
