Today’s weather in the Toronto area included the dreads of every aviator.

Several hours of freezing drizzle and rain, and now a few hours of thunderstorms. I have not heard of these two phenomena occurring in the same place on the same day before. The former tends to occur early winter, the other mid summer. What a kooky winter it has been here this year.

UPDATE: Next morning, we get the strongest winds I remember ever seeing here. “When it rains, it pours.”

Some weather observations, for the record:
