were near the freezing mark for the day and dropped to slightly below in the
early evening.My mid-evening the temps began to rise and by midnight we were
above freezing.Not sure what time the storm started here but the wind and
rain woke me up around 5:30.There is NO snow in my area but it is very windy
and raining quite hard.The stormy conditions will persist for most of
today,clearing late tonight and we're looking at a mix of sun and cloud with
cooler temps for tomorrow.

Today's weather trivia: 30 December
1910: A 3-day storm raged across southern and central Saskatchewan claiming
several victims. Many homesteaders lost their way and perished. Their bodies
were found a week later, frozen not far from the beaten trail. Three
children from Yellowgrass going to their grandparents were caught in the
blizzard. Searchers found the young boy dead, but his 2 sisters huddled next
to him survived.
