I knew it, I just knew it. I went and brought out the girls’ rubber boots and look what happened:

An intense pacific low pressure system will move into the Great Slave area Thursday. Heavy snowfall amounts of 10 to 20 centimetres are expected with this system. Current indications show that the heaviest snow will fall to the south of Great Slave lake.

Wouldn’t you know it, BH is weathered in way up north too and won’t be home until this system moves on. 😦
