Sad to hear about that big accident involving the truck around Mallorytown, though.

I lived in Ottawa for almost 6 years and can attest to the fact that they get way more storms which give in excess of 25 cm. It's due to them being further north and east and thus more susceptible to east coast storms.

Lucky you!

I don't think ANYONE cares about snow as much as us tongue.gif

To give everyone an idea of the reality in Alliston right now (I know it will be hard to believe for most people)

Just took this at 4pm today Fields in the area are also 100% brown, we had some dust storms today from all the wind

[attachment=323787:FullSizeRender.jpg]

I was in Barrie yesterday they still have a solid 10-15cm of snowcover from their LES outbreak last weekend. Mississauga has about 5-10cm from the storm system and the LES bands which hit them. Windsor up to Niagara/Hamilton are all covered with 10-40cm of snow.

I feel like we are the only ones with grass sad.gif

That's how I felt most of the winter here in Hamilton. As soon as I would drive 20 minutes north out of town for work, there would be snow.

How has your snow held up? Hopefully you get some time to enjoy it at least.

It's really starting to melt here, a lot of grass now exposed but it's to be expected with it being mid March I suppose. Was really nice while it lasted, nice little reminder of how fun a snowstorm can be!

Yep our close location to the Great Lakes and being closer to the East Coast lets us cash in on both types of system. Plus our geography location of being further north and in the valley allows the area to cash in on CAD for any warmer systems. About the only thing we miss is LES tongue.gif

Ottawa is really in a prime spot for snow. Like you said, you are further north so less susceptible to warm air intrusions that plague the south. In many warm storms, Ottawa can usually stay snow or freezing rain. And , all the east coast storms have a better chance at hitting you guys. Good job you guys didnt have the lakes closer or you'd be banking 400cm+ of snow every winter. And then everyone on this forum would just have to move there wink.gif

What about Barrie? They average similar amounts of snow and are much less removed from the GTA than Ottawa. They're also much more likely to hold onto it than say down here as this winter has shown.

Barrie is usually pretty reliable, but 40-50% of all their snow is LES. Ottawa receives much more system snow compared to Barrie.

Also, Barrie is more south and thus more susceptible to warm ups.

Snow is snow so I don't care where it's coming from tongue.gif

Even being more susceptible to warm ups wouldn't be a problem as they get lots of the stuff, hence more likely to hold onto it even with thaws. If I were to choose between the two, Barrie would be my ideal choice.

A bit late, but just wanted to let you guys know that the reports from EC of only 40 cm from this storm in montréal are incorrect. Two of my profs from school thoroughly measured 55-65 cm and one of peers measured 50-60 cm. I have no doubt we got over 50 cm. I would say 50-60 cm is likely closer to reality. Mcgill canceled class for the first time since the ice storm of 1998. It was the biggest snowstorm a I ever witnessed and it was truly awesome! My phone is odd when it comes to uploading pictures onto my computer but I'll send them to myself over Facebook and post them here! Quite incredible scenes smile.gif

Had EC, or NavCan, reported correctly this would have rivaled montréal ' s largest ever snowstorm from 1971 where near 60 cm was recorded.

I know that the Southern part of the Island had more snow and then the Western part had that intense band stay for a while which the Eastern part didn't but then the Eastern part had some moderate bands in the night through the night and on Wednesday morning which the Western part didn't so i guess it more or less the same totals for the island.

I know i had at least 45cm here and with the wind i know this result is not what it fell in reality so 50cm+ is more likely and when i shoveled it did show that with the snowbank it would relate to between 50 and 60cm.

EC always does this , what's odd is that sometime in their report they would include the Eastern and Western part of the Islands now this time they only putted downtown which is not reprensative of the reality especially since Montreal is basically all the island now.

Agreed 100%. I measured about 51 cms here in Pointe-Claire (10-minute drive from the airport). EC only measured 40 cms for this storm and somehow, they also measured 39 cms for the storm we had back in December 2015, which did not even come close to this storm.

Back from a few days away....Wow..left with 35cm on the ground, came back to bare grass on my lawn except where snowbanks were, or shady spots. Lol. Such is March snow.

Went to the Bruce Peninsula...no snow up there until a picture perfect 8-10cm fell yesterday morning.

Great looking forecast coming up this week. Any remaining snow will rapidly disappear.
Glad to hear this storm worked out well in Montreal! My friends in Central NY ended up with 90cm!! Insanity.

No, it never holds and we all know that when a storm is on the way so it's all good.
With the temps Mon-Tues, even shaded areas will mostly clear out. But in the sun, it's already gone. March sun is awesome. But for 2 days it was awesome! Huge snowpack and gorgeous scenes. Was a great storm.
