Alright, well, maybe not quite cataclysmic. I know that recently, there’s been an incredible amount of snow descending upon states all throughout the USA, and the storms appear to be spreading. Southern Canada has been experiencing severe snow storms, much more than usual. And that’s saying something. These recent blizzards have, at times, propelled vehicles off of streets and highways due to whiteouts. I imagine that, in communities located farther south, driving conditions will become hazardous. They haven’t stopped there, though. The storms are moving northward, and who knows where they’ll stop?
Forecasters have warned that this storm could be the worst Canada has experienced in approximately 4 years. Most recently, the storm has been buffeting cities throughout Ontario. It’s expected to move to Quebec, and possibly even further, to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, bringing tons of snow with it on top of the heaps it’s already provided.
Snowfall warnings have been issued to communities throughout southern Ontario, in hope that there will be as few accidents as possible. There have already been several deaths in Ontario due to the storm. Hopefully the number of lost lives won’t climb.
Not all is grim, though. With the extra snow, there are opportunities to go skiing, snowboarding, and other such winter activities. It will be enjoyable for the children and young adults, as well as grown men and women. Families can enjoy a fun time outside, then warm up indoors with a nice hot chocolate or three. c:
