After the snow slowed down we ventured out for a ride and Don checked some traps. There is a lot of snow and there is a lot of slush coming up already. I'm sure there will be even more slush as the snow continues to settle. The wind picked up last night and this morning the snow feels much denser. Don has already started to plow this morning and this might be an all day job for him. Temperatures have dropped off, minus 17C this morning.
Today's forecast -Cloudy with 30 percent chance of flurries early this morning. Clearing this morning. Wind north 20 km/h gusting to 40 becoming light near noon.
