i woke up this morning to a blanket of snow covering the streets, a sight which is normally seen here sometime in november, or early to mid december in recent years with all the climactic changes taking place worldwide. i even heard some business are closing earlier as driving is hazardous. i can't — or maybe in this city, i can — believe people haven't put their winter tires on their cars.
at the moment, the news says, "Weather warnings in effect for 64 local areas."
you can take a look at something called montréal cam to see what it looks like here now. you can also check canada cams to see a different province or city or here. this is another site with different webcams from cities all over the place, not just canada.
my friends in california have told me [and confirmed what i saw on the news] that i'd better run now and buy my citrus fruit. many trees and fruit were covered with icicles today which means that the crops may die. that means much higher prices at the stores over the next few weeks, if that's true. here is a story with video about the cold weather in california. it's amazing to see how just a little ice can cause so much damage, especially to drivers. i guess we are just used to it here where i live.
i heard that crop owners are actually building bonfires and using wind making machines to blow the hot air on the trees to try and save their bounty.
