Yesterday was a mostly cloudy day with temps a few degrees above
freezing.The wind picked up in the afternoon and we had gale force winds for
the rest of the day and overnight.The wind is still quite strong this
morning and will continue to blow into the weekend.I wonder what happened to
the nice weather that was supposed to start yesterday?

 Today's weather trivia: 7 March 2011: A storm hit Quebec and New Brunswick
with up to 70 cm of snow. In Sherbrooke, QC, more than 75 cm of snow fell in
24 hours, shutting down schools, city facilities, and roads. It took 10 days
to clear away the snow. Police took the exceptional step of urging residents
not to leave their homes. Those who ventured out, used snowshoes, skis, and
even snowboards to get around.
