The 12z GFS run today showed a classic NNW setup next week after that storm which historically affects the Collingwood to Barrie (and west) towards Angus, Alliston, Newmarket, King City. And another band from Goderich and Grand Bend to Lucan/London. Haven't seen much of that setup at all this season.


That was the predominant direction for quite a bit of that period before Christmas...remember Angus got 50 cms or something. We usually get something from that, but tends to be more southern and western sections of Barrie that profit the most. I will set up a thread later...may be my last one ever sad.gif or may not be, as I might stay after all smile.gif

Yes I do remember that, we picked up about 5-10cm from it while Angus got creamed.

And does this mean you are staying in Barrie?!?!

Picture taken from Washago, ON (north of Orillia). About 45-50cm has accumulated so far during this squall event.

Lucky buggers.

I may be staying in Barrie. Had a chat with my Mum when I was back in the UK, and she may come here once my Dad has passed...it's an option. I really don't want to live in the UK again if I can help it...love it here way too much.

^ Oh wow, that's great to hear. You may have a new neighbour as I will likely be living in Barrie by the fall of this year. Im very excited! Real estate prices are similar in Alliston and Barrie, and my business has grown roots in the both areas. Am strongly considering selling my place here and buying a house in Barrie, likely in the south or west end of the city.

The thought of moving into an area which receives on average 3 feet extra snow each season makes me super pumped!

Move to north end, makes world of difference.
Midhurst can be golden for snow

I haven't totally ruled out the north end to be honest. I know they get more snow, about 220cm in the south end vs 260cm in the north on average. But even the south end of Barrie's 220cm per year blows away the 155cm Alliston gets on average. Plus, for commuting purposes I find the south or west end easier (access to Hwy 27, Hwy 90, 5th line).

That is a myth...Mapleview adds 10 mins to any commute from the south end. This year is the first in which the south has had more than the north since I moved here. The number of times I've driven up the 400 and the squall starts at Dunlop are too many to mention. Bayfield is really bad on the west side of the 400 as well. Personally I l9ve my area, just north of the downtown, big lots, old houses. Some parts still have an edge, but I personally think this will benefit most from future rail links and downtown improvements.

Ferndale is a decent way to cross city, not sure if still under construction.
That's great way to access 27 and Hwy 90.
I worked at yachiyo and when I went home crossing st vincent several times had more snow.
Even in almost every snowfall the north end seems to win.
Seen snow there when rain at Mapleview.
The lottery was living on first line oro, another example of snow there sun in Barrie.
10 min to me would be worth the snow being a snowlover

My grandmother lives by Duckworth and Grove street north of Downtown Barrie. I'm very familiar with that whole NE area of the city as I spent lots of time there as a kid in both summer and winter.

Good luck to you Travis if you decided to move up there. I'll eventually be joining you in a few years/decades... tongue.gif laugh.gif

I live just off grove but nearer Bayfield. Just love it. Can walk to the downtown and lake front in 10 mins, on the 400 in less than 5 even in rushour, really big lot with old trees and homes that are from century through to 70s. So many little bungalows that with an addition would be great modern SFHs...developers dream, but few seem to notice...one day.

Just to ram the whole north Barrie thing home, I just left the cineplex at Duckworth interchange, and it was getting nailed, got off at Bayfield, virtually nothing...and yes Oro is the lottery for snow lovers:
