There is a serious cold snap going on right now in Ottawa. The temperature when I got up this morning was -19oC with a wind chill warning of -31</sup>o</sup>C. Talk about colder than a witch's teat and alll that... Bloody Brrrr! :( The weather is supposed to go on like this for another day or two, and there are warnings about frostbite, and that the elderly should stay inside, not to mention the potential for frost/ice quakes aka cryoseisms. Several of which have occurred in the Ottawa region yesterday and today. What a tricky woman Mother Nature has turned out to be this year, and it's still early!
Add to that the "dusting" of snow that fell overnight, and I use the term mockingly, as about 3-5 cms of the white stuff came down last night, and the weather today is somewhat treacherous, to say the least.
Thank Goddess for the warm office and the even warmer cups of herbal tea. :)
