We're getting the remnants over here now!! But not quite as bad..only 5-8". The freezing rain isn't helping matters, though.

You're lucky you only got 12". A week ago we got almost 45cm in my part of the city, which is 18". Now we are in a nice little deepfreeze. It'* about -20C now, -34 with the wind. Overnight it gets down to -45C to -50C with the wind. Thats when my tires go flat.

Go Winnipeg!
