The messy weather has begun in Digby County.

Plows are out and running back and forth on Highway 101 but the wind and fast falling snow are filling it in right behind them.

The off ramps from Deep Brook to Digby were all at 7:30 a.m. snow covered with 2 to 5 centimetres.

The Bear River bridge is ice covered in patches with low visibility due to blowing snow.

Bay Ferries has cancelled both sailings today.

The latest forecast is still calling for snow at times heavy changing to ice pellets mixed with freezing rain late this morning then to rain this afternoon.

Snow and ice pellet amount 10 cm except 20 cm inland. Rainfall amount 10 to 20 mm. Blowing snow this morning.

The winds are forecast to be 30 km/h gusting to 50 increasing to 50 gusting to 80 this morning then becoming light this afternoon.

The rain showers should end late this evening and the temperature will drop to minus 3 overnight.

Tomorrow they are giving a mix of sun and cloud with 40 percent chance of flurries in the morning, bringing maybe another 5 cm of snow.

We want to hear how you’re making out in it. Send us storm photos or photos of how you’re enjoying the day indoors.

The Digby Courier will also be running a special sidebar on our webpage Sunday with reports on the storm from around the province via our sister papers. The Cover It Live sidebar allows readers to submit comments, questions and reports right into the stream (after quick moderation).

We also welcome your storm reports and snow photos…

    Certainly makes beautiful pictures, but much safer to stay indoors. Have a safe and blessed day. God Bless us, one and all.
