20cm of snow on the ground this morning and it’s still snowing AND it’s going to get really windy later today. Nice! Top five things you might be thinking this morning.

Dear Mike Benny,
Father says if you hear it on The River, it must be so. Father also says there is no one more cynical than Mike Benny. That’s why I’m asking you this question. Dear Mike Benny, is there a snowplow in Prince George? The kids at school all say there isn’t. They laugh and poke fun when I say there is. Would you please settle this once and for all and answer my question? Yours truly, Virginia
Those kids at school are wrong. They’re jaded and much like myself becoming more and more cynical. Of course there is a snowplow in Prince George. I know you can’t see the snowplow, but some things don’t need to be seen to be believed. Yes, when it comes to City snow removal, we never actually see the snow plows, but if they’re not there, then where does that 5.2 million in tax money go every winter? And, as sure as we get snow in December, the streets are almost always completely clear of snow by early June every year. So, yes, Virginia of course there is a snowplow.
The Canadian weather station on the Phoenix Mars Lander has spotted snow on Mars. Top five differences between Martian snow and Earth snow.
#5. On Mars 90% of the snow evaporates before it hits the ground.
#4. On Earth 90% of all the snow falls on The Hart.
#3. Martian weather stations can accurately predict snow with 95% accuracy.
#2. Here – we’re pretty sure it’s going to snow sometime between September and July. Every once in a while maybe August.
#1. On Mars it’s okay to eat yellow snow – but don’t touch the purple stuff!
Top five things about a snowy weekend in Prince George

#1. However much snow you got; at least you know they have twice as much in the Hart
