It's a DRY Snow
In the Winnipeg Free Press they had this to say in connection to the flood forecast.
In their first flood briefing of 2014, provincial officials said the outlook looks fairly positive at this point because of a relatively "dry" snow pack and average soil moisture conditions heading into freeze-up.
I filled up a measuring cup with snow - over the 1000 mL mark.
After 2 hours it had melted quite a bit.
The next morning there was about 375 mL of water in the cup.
So is that "dry" or not? I'm not sure. What I do know is that the melted snow wasn't very clean.

WELCOME TO ELMWOOD
There is a new sign on the berm leading into our neighbourhood that welcomes people to Elmwood.
We took a picture of it this past summer when they were finished the brick-work but before they finished the landscaping.
Over the past few months, we've been slowly watching the sign disappear under the snow; on the weekend we took another picture of the sign.
We really hope that it doesn't mean that people aren't as welcome here in the winter as they are in the summer.
