I wonder if a certain Ohio prosecutor read my blog. A headline today reads ” Punxsutawney Phil ‘indicted’ over bad forecast” http://ca.news.yahoo.com/video/punxsutawney-phil-indicted-over-bad-172403410.html
While the U.S. lawmaker might be poking fun at the groundhog and yesterday’s storm it was not as funny north of the 49th.
More than 100 vehicles were involved in a pile-up on QE2 between Edmonton and Calgary. Portions of that highway and others were shut down due to the treacherous conditions. Hospitals in the capital region and as far away as Red Deer were being slammed with casualties that were mainly minor. All forms of media yesterday were active with information and photos regarding the storm. Some areas received from 20 to 40 cm of snow coupled with gusting winds that polished highways, formed drifts and decreased driver visibility.
