I know what a toque is. I like mine with a poofball and tassels. I live in northern North Dakota, you send us cold weather, poutine, and curling. Thanks a lot, NAFTA!

Same here. Not surprising, though - we are only about 300 km apart

Ice storm. Freezing rain for the last 48 hrs. Much of Kingston downtown without power. 250,000 without power in Toronto - possibly until Christmas. The rain is still coming down. It's nuts out there.

Hot here in Florida. Yesterday it was close to 90 on my front porch. Luckily it is supposed to get cooler by Christmas Eve.

Re: what's your local weather?

It tried to sleet here earlier for about 5 minutes. Other than that, it's still wind and rain.

Re: what's your local weather?

Well, due to the ice storm, I've been without power for about 40 hours. Which includes my heat. Kinda sucks.

I've got CP24 on right now, and the number is down to 195,000 in Toronto without power, but there are over 70,000 in the surrounding area that are still without.

Fortunately, my building didn't lose power - which makes up for the two days in the summer when we did due to flooding. But my building is one of the few - looking outside the last few nights, I couldn't see any lights anywhere other than streetlights, and some stoplights in my area were out as well.

Apparently one of our subway lines is still shut down, though the streetcar fleet is back on the roads (they weren't running on Sunday).

And my back is feeling a little better after falling ass over teakettle on Sunday afternoon, trying to get to the nearest working subway station because I needed to go downtown. I took about two steps onto a bridge, started to slide, and fell over in slow motion, twisting my back and smacking my elbow on the ground. I'm not terribly impressed with the lack of salting. (A kind middle-aged couple stopped on the bridge and offered me a lift.)

Several friends have reported having trees fall on their property, and in at least one case, they couldn't get their car out of their driveway. (Fortunately, the fallen tree had missed their car and house.) I don't have any photos myself, but if you do a Google image search on "Toronto ice storm 2013," you'll see some amazing pictures.

Re: what's your local weather?

I have friends in Maine holed up at home because of this storm. They may have lost power (or at least internet) as I haven't seen a Facebook update from them in a while. Reminds me of a few years ago when a similar storm hit New Hampshire. I got lucky and still had power, but no internet. That meant friends with no power stopping by for two weeks to use my shower and warm up.

Here, it's still damp, but supposed to be getting much colder with a risk for black ice. We're not quite at freezing right now, so maybe as the sun comes out it'll dry up a bit before the temp nosedives overnight. I just want a safe trip to Christmas dinner with the in-laws tonight!
