It was a cold day in Nova Scotia yesterday.That may have been an understatement,the temps barely made it to -10° here on Hoptoad Hill.The only good thing was that it was sunny and there was very little wind.This morning it is still quite cold and we are in for another day of this and then we will be warming up with some precip on the way for Monday....looks like the usual snow changing to rain thing for here.I guess that means more ice to deal with next week.
As you can tell by the pictures that I post here,we have basically no snow accumulation to date.That's the way I like it but,since we are basically following the same track as last year,we may get our snow later.The biggest snow storm last year was on Easter Eve and that was a blizzard that left 30cms behind:
