  • Merry Christmas Everyone!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Hello!

    I hope you’re all having a wonderful week.  Mine has been pretty relaxing…just getting a few last minute gifts wrapped, and then a trip to Brooklyn tomorrow to visit my sister-in-law and my husband’s family for Christmas Dinner.

    If you want to keep track of  Santa’s trip (which I love to do!)  here’s the link to see his journey on the internet:

    I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas, and I’m just waiting for my special present to arrive next month! :)

    I wish for love, happiness and joy to everyone,

    The first day of winter brought wind-chill warnings, snow and a bevy of storms to cities across Canada on Sunday, potentially laying the groundwork for the first cross-country white Christmas in nearly four decades.

    Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips told CTV Newsnet that “it looks like a very good chance” it will be a white Christmas for all parts of Canada for the first time since 1971.

    “It’s just sort of the beginning of winter, and it’s a little much to expect when we have so many different climatic types in this country for it to be frozen and snow-covered from right across the huge country,” he told CTV Newsnet on Sunday.

    Sorry so late in posting this!  And man, is it cold outside!  I had to go to a doc’s appointment, and met a girlfriend for lunch…I felt like I was in the arctic!  (Look at me complaining about the weather HA!)

    Hope you guys are having fun today – to Sunny (and to all of our Jewish Bloggers) Happy Hanukkah!

    I bought a video today of a Yule Log that plays Christmas music.  It’s playing right now on our Big Screen.  I love it!

    Talk to you soon!

    Winter arrived officially at around 7am eastern time this morning…(although most of us have been feeling winter-like for weeks!)

  • Another winter whollop!

    Janice Dean | Meteorologist

    Good morning everyone…

    I’ve had a few people comment on the fact that we don’t do enough “West Coast” weather…well, the truth is, we do — when there’s a big event happening, and this certainly qualifies :

    Wintery Weather

    SEATTLE – A fierce winter storm blew in from the Pacific with up to 2 feet of snow and icy wind, creating a nightmare for holiday travelers already stymied by winter’s dance across the northern half of the country.

    Snow, sleet and freezing rain caused treacherous driving conditions throughout the Pacific Northwest. Sections of two major highways — Interstate 84 in Oregon east of Portland, and Interstate 90 in Washington — were closed late Saturday and authorities urged people not to drive unless it was an emergency.

    “It is extremely dangerous to be on the roads at this time,” said Multnomah County Deputy Paul McRedmond, sheriff’s spokesman.
