    Environment Canada has issued a travel warning due to snowfall and bad road conditions.


    They suggest that anyone travelling in the current icy conditions should ensure they have the following:
    Shovel
    Blankets or sleeping bag
    Extra clothing including hat and gloves
    24 hours worth of food
    De-Icer
    Rock Salt
    Flashlight with spare batteries
    Road Flares or Reflective Triangles
    Full gas Can
    First Aid Kit
    Booster cables

    I looked like an idiot on the bus this morning!

    hahahahaha Greybeard
    Still, I saw this warning too. The roads are going to be a disaster tomorrow. :p
    Seriously, I hope nobody goes off the road and freezes to death. It's supposed to drop to -35 with the wind chill by tomorrow night and the lake effect snow they're predicting is supposed to cause white-outs on top of that.

    It's times like this I'm glad I don't drive.

    Haha Greybeard you're the best! :D

    You'll be lucky with -35°C; some areas are getting as low as -50°C…

    I have a sister in Winnipeg - which is commonly called Winterpeg - and she keeps be informed about the weather. According to her, if it's above 3K it isn't cold.

    Yeaaahhhh.... stupid me. The drive was very entertaining. I didn't dare risk the backroads and the 410 was a skating rink. :p

    The air temperature is -28 here this morning and with the wind it feels like -43. Good grief! This is insane!!!

    hahahahaha
