Thread Name: BS: Spring is here
Subject: RE: BS: Spring is here
As from previous posts, it's been a great winter. Lulled into a false sense of security by Old Man Winter, the bastard strikes Monday with a Nor'easter. Warnings/watches are out but alerts have yet to be issued and they may not be as the track is uncertain. Alas, the temperatures have dropped... -15C tonight... so this could be a real Nor'easter given that the cold air may stall the storm when it hits the Isthmus of Chignecto (The Isthmus of Chignecto is an isthmus bordering the Maritime provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia which connects the Nova Scotia peninsula with North America.). I have seen us storm stayed for over three days with one of these late winter storms stalling over us but, given the weather over the last 15 years or so, even *I* have been lulled.
Nonetheless, I welcome the vernal equinox in the early hours of the morrow.
