Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Sunday that the storm approaching on Monday was likely to be one of the biggest to ever strike New York City, and he urged people to stay indoors to avoid powerful winds, low visibility and “treacherous” road conditions.

The National Weather Service, which issued a blizzard warning for the greater New York City area, forecast gusts of wind up to 50 miles per hour and snow accumulation of “at least one to two feet.”

But Mr. de Blasio said the storm could bring up to three feet of snow, beginning with flurries late Monday morning, and that the heaviest snowfall would probably come Monday night into Tuesday morning.

The real story behind Plymouth Rock

jeudi, janvier 22nd, 2015

Plymouth Rock

Even though its historical provenance is dubious, Plymouth Rock has had a tumultuous history all its own. After emerging as a colonial symbol of liberty, the stone has been moved from place to place, split it two and whittled away at by souvenir hunters. Still, the Pilgrims’ purported landing place endures. Explore the real history of Plymouth Rock on the website History: click HERE.

Welcome to the « dead of winter » in Toronto

mercredi, janvier 21st, 2015

If you average out 75 years of Toronto weather data, you’ll make the awful discovery that the coldest part of the year starts Wednesday, which might explain Tuesday’s extreme cold weather alert.

According to Environment Canada’s records, from Jan. 21 until Jan. 30, the average minimum temperature is -10.9C, making it what their senior meteorologist David Phillips calls ‘the dead of winter.’ It’s the coldest period of the year and only after Jan. 30 does the average temperatures start to climb. Unfortunately, climbing out of this meteorological ice tomb takes time. The average low is below minus -10C until Feb.15th.

The hottest time of the year, let’s call it the ‘dog-days of summer’ are 181 days away. On July 7th, the average high is 27.1C. What a dream.
