Live updates, all day, throughout the storm, because I know my family in Ontario is dying to know if we survive this one 🙂

8:37am: Will it really be the blizzard of the decade? I guess we’ll see! Currently no snow, no wind. Everything in the province is closed. I work from home though, so I can keep working as long as the internet and power stay on 🙂

7:33pm: Dead calm here with light rain. We’re missing some crazy winds. The evening news showed it was a white hurricane in Saint John and Moncton. Somewhere in Cape Breton had 200km/hr wind gusts. Could that be true? Wow!

7am Thursday: Wow was it windy overnight! Sounded like a tropical storm! The sound of the wind kept waking me up as it howled around the eaves and dormers.

8:34am Thursday: Storm is really picking up again. Super windy, poor visibility, snowing. All schools are closed again. We have power, but our internet connection is really slow. Jeff headed out for work but I haven’t heard if he made it yet. The wind warning for 100km/hr wind gusts continues here today.
