Snow-slush day 4

Another day, another snow day for area students.

If you managed to dig out from yesterday's snow, you can look forward to freezing rain today, when,

of course, school bus transportation has been cancelled for the fourth consecutive day.

Driving is an adventure again as snow has given way to black ice and slush.

And some parking lots are like rinks.

But we can anticipate a return to lower temperatures later today.

Snow day 3

Make it Snow Day Number 3 this week as Old Man Winter decided to give us another helping of snow last night and today.

We can look forward to milder temperatures, and, of course, freezing rain later today, apparently.

Take it easy out there, folks.

How bad is it? A snowplow was in the ditch on the 417 near St-Isidore earlier this morning.
