Falling Mercury

I think it's a good thing we no longer use mercury thermometers, but the saying will probably never go away.  It's pretty easy now to look across the room at my large digital wireless readout thermometer display and see that the temperature is slowly going negative tonight and is already at -8 C.  At the same time I hear the odd creak and groan outside the house of things that are flapping in the Arctic outflow breaking out tonight (our third major one this winter - I think?).  I hope this will be the last really cold one.  We often get one in late March or even the first week in April, but the temperatures are usually pretty acceptable by then.  Grizzly

  1. Hi Grizzly, well the forecast for the Victoria area is for a week to ten days of cold weather. Maybe even snow! definitely in the higher altitudes and most likely in the Sooke,Langford, Highlands area. I'm just busting to get out in the garden but I'm holding back till the weather predictions get better.
