Virden - Souris
10:19 PM CST Sunday 13 November 2005
Winter storm warning for
Virden - Souris continued

Snow and blowing snow expected Monday and Tuesday.

This is a warning that dangerous winter weather conditions are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions...Listen for updated statements.



A low pressure system currently developing over southern Alberta is forecast to intensify into a Major storm system spreading snow and blowing snow as it crosses southern Manitoba through the day on Monday and into Tuesday. Southwestern areas of the province will see snow begin Monday morning while in more easterly areas the snow will begin in the afternoon. This system is expected to give generally 10 to 15 cm of snow across most areas although local amounts could reach over 20 cm by Tuesday evening. Strong easterly winds on Monday and northerly winds on Tuesday will accompany this winter storm producing poor visibilities in blowing snow.

Travellers should be prepared for poor driving conditions across southern Manitoba on Monday and Tuesday.

Well, the forecast was finally right, for once! Snowflakes the size of silver dollars coming down sideways!!!
Visibility is less than 100yds. at times. The really scary part is that today is the first day of rifle season here and I can hear shots from every direction. How can these guys even see what they are shooting at let alone what is beyond???
It's a good day to get chores done early and then retire to the safety of the couch!! :)

My son is in Moose Jaw taking his 1A driving test this morning. He was less then impressed when he got up and had to clean 4inches of wet snow off his truck to go down and take the test.

We got a couple inches of the wet stuff. Sun's trying to come out, not succeeding too well. It's supposed to dip down to -17C for the next couple of nights. Brrr! If the forecasters are right (ha ha), it's supposed to warm up quite nicely again come this weekend.

No I don't think he's going to buy a truck. I think he's hoping to get a water truck driving job on the rigs. Lots of work for driver around here. The boys hauling crude from here into the US are making $20 hours and the rig workers maybe more. He is going to haul somemore hay that I bought before he takes off.

Sounds like most of the snow is going to miss us --just getting some little snow squalls now---But the wind is miserable- blowing 30-gusting to 45mph-- temp down to 34, but the wind makes it feel like 20 below.....

Definitely good whiskey weather Haymaker--not much else you can do without getting blown away......I need to run into the Bank this afternoon-maybe talk the banker into us slipping over to the Waterhole for awhile-- have a little Canadian Rye and help Manitoba Rancher and the Canadian economy out a little :wink: :lol: .....

we're supposed to get hammered tonight...not so much of the snow -- only 4 to 6 inches -- but the wind is supposed to hit 50 mph and stay well over the 35 mph mark until sometime tomorrow afternoon. Blizzard conditions to say the least...

It's gonna get nasty out there so everyone stay safe!!!

We are just getting hammered here. Roads arent in good shape and its next thing to a good ole blizzard when you step out the door. It has gotten worse all afternoon. Went to feed the cows this afternoon and almost couldnt find them. Good thing I dont have Chars or I would still be searching for them...... :wink: :lol: :lol:

Pretty much done snowing now. There is a nice breeze out of the NW at about "warp 7" blowing all the snow into some good sized drifts. Schools are closed. Not real cold though, around 20 Fahrenheit. I might have to put on a long-sleeved shirt today. :wink:
A small flock of swans and 2 bald eagles just flew over here, headed south. They were low and fast. They were "head down/ass up" and had that " F--- this" look on their faces.......smart birds! :)

Tim H,


Its the same here, the wind is really whipping that snow around. Heard they are talking about the windchill tonite and tomorrow being in around the -30. That will really put the bite in the fall air....... Could somebody from the south send some warm sunlight our way..... :roll:

We ve got over a foot of snow since this storm started so I guess we can say winter is officially here? :roll: :roll: :roll:
