Thank you too to Steve at Newfoundlandgreenparty. Blogspot for linking also. I just have to mention this, I wonder if there is an NL green party blogspot? Wally will be proud of me, eh?
We did miss the worst of the storm last 4 days, only 39 cm of snow compared to 107 in central Labrador and 70 odd in Wabush. Sun is out now with some winds to around 60 clicks.
Sure hope the 8 people caught out in storm between Rigolet and Goose Bay are holed up in a cabin and OK. One is only six and just out of hospital.
This brings me to the closed weather station in Gander. I did not see any great warning signs of this storm from the Environment Canada weather site I may have missed it, but a story on ‘here & now’ last evening makes me think not. Seems the official site did not have any storm warnings, but the weather office at 5 wing GB did have warnings but were not picked up by Environment Canada, until after the fact. If this is true then this is one more reason to have a good think about what is going on in the federal level vis a vis this province. I know for sure that we often do not get storm warnings for the coast until they have hit.
