A couple of you said that you looked up "Sheila's Brush" so I myself got curious and found this site with a bit about Sheila and some other weather lore. http://www.bishops.k12.nf.ca/science/escience/weather.htm I saw some interviews on the television news with people on the street in St. John's. They all commented that yes, it was Sheila's Brush.
We were still doing some shoveling yesterday, we were making a pathway up to the house. We decided that if one of us started on one end and the other on the other end, we would get it done quite quickly. It worked! We have what we can only call a road cut from the gate to the back steps, lol. It turned out to be a beautifully sunny day and the temperatures went a bit above zero.
Got up this morning and on looking outside saw that we had another fall of snow. Mind you, it's only about 4 inches so no big deal but it's still coming down....argh!! The weather man on the news said "Don't put your shovels away yet!"
