I agree! Everyone is all like: "isn't this amazing?! 17 degrees! Yeah!"
There is nothing amazing about +17 in February in Canada. (I'm done now and cue the haters!)

Georgian Nordic had a base of 80cm. It is now down to 60cm. That is still a great base but trails are closed since too soft. Grrrr.

Nobel is expected to get 40mm of rain by Sunday.

I got contacted by CHCH and CBC today to do interviews about the weather. I wasn't in town so had to say no but its just as well as I probably would have done a Rick Mercer'esque rant.

These Ontario climate change ads are good.

The Gov of Ontario has gotten themselves in hot-water with the Auditor General over these ads in the past.

What Ontario has done with removal of coal is excellent. Air quality improvements and reduced Hg emissions are already having massive health benefits. Given what is happening in the US with the EPA and the massive oil and gas climate denial money I don't really care if the Ontario ads are viewed as partisan (new ones apparently aren't).

Sure beats what Harper did by removing the GC climatechange web site when he came into power.

Hot water?! These are great. What a shame. Shouldn't we all just take some responsibility?

Sorry to hear about the rain. We got it this week too and I'm sad for Scenic Caves and Highlands. It's time to save our xc ski clubs! ;)

Well we could look to our neighbo(u)rs to the south for leadership.

I'm sure a few of Trumps friends could provide leadership like a person that headed the company that spent the most on climate change denialism and a person that sued the EPA over a dozen times would love these ads.

or not.

sigh. The world is f*cked.
