Ive warmed to -7c now from -10c. Received 5 cm of ice pellets with freezing rain mixing in now. Should be above 0c before morning.

About 10-12mm of ice accretion here. Everything looks all glossy and shiny. Now lets just hope the power doesn't go out.

Been away all day working so missed the action up here . Just got home and everything is frozen over but it doesn't look too bad . Drive home was uneventful . From the looks of things here we didn't even loose power which i'm surprised about .

YYZ (Pearson) was an absolute disaster late this afternoon . Not sure how many flights were cancelled but it was in the hundreds . There was even a time today around 1600-1700 that aircraft were waiting so long for de ice that by the time they got de iced they had to go back to the terminal to be refuelled and then had to get back in line for de ice . Have worked there for 27 years and have never seen ice accumulation like that before , an absolute crazy and exhausting day . Glad its over !!!
Have some great pictures that I will try to post up tomorrow .

I've been on a plane that did that. Took us 1.5 hours to get off the ground, even though it was only light snow! To be fair, you guys do an awesome job, shame that the new CEO of AC is destroying the customer experience though. Used to be a great airline, but now chasing everyone else to the bottom.

I am pleasantly surprused at the lack of damage...it looked worse than it was. We had no thaw though, so untreated surfaces are still coated in thick ice...Im reckoning on about 10mm.

Very windy this morning and reasonable LES potential.

We got off easy. There is ice on the car, but little to no ice on the trees. The power is still on. However, it's wildly slippery out there with a layer of rain over all the snow and ice.

We'll be cleaning up the snowdrifts this morning before they turn to blocks of ice this afternoon when the temperature drops.

In Ottawa, near Civic Hospital... we briefly got up to just above 1C before it started dropping again, around 7 AM. See attached graph of the temperature outside my house ... not as warm as predicted. I just finished shoveling and there as clearly a lot of ice pellets on top of the snow, with a tiny bit of freezing rain I think. Sun is now out and blue skies, temperature continuing to drop.

No damage here luckily. All the ice on the trees has melted this morning. Still some on the ground. We still have power, so like expected things weren't that bad.

Where are you?

Just west of Ottawa. Great winter here so far while locations just 1 to 2 hrs south and west of here have little to no snow.

We've got snow, not as much as Ottawa (40 minutes north of us) for sure! This storm iced everything up for sure. Along the right side of the picture is part of our laneway. Today you could skate all the way from the house to the road. It's all crunched up and driveable now.

For sure. Location has been a huge factor for this season.

We ended here gaining 3" on the ground but there was much more that fell for sure since the snow banks from the street and sidewalk plows are around 12" inch high and snow removal is underway.

With this storm we're back at 12" on the ground which is putting us back to the highest snow level we had on the ground this year.
