Not an advantage when you sleep through everything because of your days off and finally leave the house to find a layer of solid ice on everything when you need to get to your night shift.

Or like today, slept for 16 hours and woke up to find a foot of snow... and coyote and rabbit tracks circling around the car and into the backyard.
Wow, 16hrs of sleep!

What a disappointment.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Things are very slippery in St. Catharines this morning. I'm very glad I have my YakTrax. I got them as a Christmas gift two Christmas ago, and they just sat in my basement, but I've used them several times this winter. They make walking on the slipperiest of ice safe.

I definitely had to be careful on my short, in-town drive to work this morning. Subdivision roads were very bumpy and covered in thick ice. Some main roads were extremely slippery with smooth black ice at intersections. At one point, I saw the vehicle ahead of my sliding to a stop. I coasted down to idle speed, and still locked up all four winter tires when I applied the brakes. And the high winds blowing recycling bins all over the road was a fun bonus too.

OP is this garbage forecast accurate for my area, and if so when will this hell begin? I feel like I cannot catch a break with this crap winter

Significant snowfall possible Sunday and Sunday night.

Areas of heavy flurries off Lake Ontario are expected to develop Sunday morning and persist into the afternoon due to increasing northeast winds. This activity should mainly affect the Hamilton area, but may affect the Burlington and Oakville areas as well.

More widespread snow associated with an approaching low pressure system is then expected to move into the region early Sunday evening and persist into early Monday morning. The heaviest snowfall during this timeframe will likely be from Hamilton towards Niagara Falls.

Snowfall amounts are generally expected to be in the 5 to 10 cm range although some areas, particularly on the escarpment, may approach 15 cm.

Lake effect snow is difficult to predict and doesn't even snow up on forecast models. At least the system snow won't be too much. Only about 5 cm. Lake effect is hit or miss.
blahhh

Its coming down pretty hard, from what I can see on the MTO cameras highway conditions are not good, can't even see lanes everything is solid white. Its really cold and windy too. Looks like tomorrow will be a stay at home inside day. Anyone planning to head this direction or Niagara tomorrow may want to rethink their plans

This weather is just defeating me

ALERTS IN EFFECT
Special Weather Statement
Issued at 15:16 Monday 18 February 2019
Potential for freezing rain on Wednesday.

A low pressure system from Texas will track towards the Great Lakes on Wednesday. Precipitation associated with this system will begin as snow Wednesday morning for Southwestern Ontario, but will quickly change over to freezing rain and then to rain late in the day.

Untreated surfaces, such as roads, walkways and parking lots, could become icy, slippery and dangerous.
