ICE CAP ANYONE?

Just last week, I was tormenting my friends in Toronto about the sloppy snow and cold temperatures they were experiencing. Looks like the last laugh is one me. -1 and 10 cm of wet, sloppy snow made for a slushy ride into work this morning.

St. John's residents woke up to a blanket of snow Monday morning. The wet and slushy weather caused a few problems, but the late storm is mostly an inconvenience.

Just to put the snow in perspective, on April 21, 2011, a similar late dump of snow occurred. In some regions of the province schools were canceled.  No such luck for kids today!

I am disappointed with the snow, the warmer weather, flowers and green grass had me convinced that old man winter was in the past.

The good news is that this snow will melt quickly enough, temperatures will rise this afternoon resulting in some rain!
