    Quick, lock your windows and doors. Shut down St. Johns NOW before it is too late. Better call in all snow plow drivers and sidewalk cleaners today.. Oh I forgot, St. Johns has no sidewalk cleaning to speak of. Well those people can clean out the drive ways that the plows block. That would be a good use of those toys they are to use for sidewalks.

    15 cm of snow, what are we going to do with all that snow. I can never remember having that much snow at one time(ha, ha). What about the beautiful days we are having in the middle of January. They are hardly mentioned. Oh, what a place to live!

    I can remember when 15cm of snow was just a dusting and now it is considered a weather-bomb. When 15cm is predicted we either get none or a lot more. The best forecast - look out your window.
