I was supposed to go to London today, driving to my new home. Instead
every rode between here and there is closed and the wind chill made my
fingers lose all sensation in about 30 seconds.
Look at this crap:
ALL HIGHWAYS AND COUNTY ROADS IN GREY AND BRUCE ARE STILL CLOSED.
IN DUFFERIN COUNTY, THE OPP SAY ALL THE ROADS IN THE SHELBURNE AREA ARE IMPASSABLE, AND ARE CONSIDERED CLOSED.
HURON OPP ALSO REPORT VISIBILITY IS EXTREMELY POOR, AND DRIVING IS NOT A GOOD IDEA.
MORRIS-TURNBERRY AND HOWICK TOWNSHIPS HAVE PULLED THEIR PLOWS OFF THE ROADS UNTIL CONDITIONS IMPROVE.
Other road closures include:
Highway 4 from Arva to Exeter
Highway 4 from Blyth to Teeswater
Highway 86 from Amberley to Wallenstein
Highway 87 from Bluevale to Harriston
Highway 8 from Stratford to Mitchell
Highway 23 from Elginfield to Harriston
Highway 7 from Stratford to St. Marys
Highway 10 from Orangeville to Chatsworth
Highway 6 Tobermory to Fergus
Highway 9 from Clifford to Harriston.
Highway 21 from Goderich to Springmount.
Highway 89 is closed from Shelburne to Mount Forest
Wellington County Road 7 from Salem to Teviotdale
Wellington Road 109 from Harriston to Arthur
Perth County Road 119 from Stratford north to Perth County Road 7
Perth County Line 26 and County Road 112 to Tavistock
Visibility is down to zero at times because of the blowing snow and stationary snow squalls..
At least I was able to get Jen's computer online and set up with XP. I had to dig a bit to get the drivers and so on, and the DVDRW drive was stuck closed (and is again) but the PC works and is all set for Jen and the rest of the adults here at my 'rents to use.
Holy crap, the wind just made stuff fall off the desk as I was typing this.
I snagged a video of the squalls while I was dropping Jen off at work, but I don't think I'll get out of here until the morning now.
I hope my new employer understands.
