Spring? Here's hoping.

One more sign that spring is upon us, we have relented and taken all of the snowmen down and replaced them with a spring themed display. Paul was able to get a bike up there and it looks pretty neat.

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

An intense low pressure near Sudbury area will continue to head northeastward into Qu├ębec shortly after noon hour.
