The forecast calls for a high of -4C on Friday, with a 30% chance of flurries and an overnight low of -3C.
Saturday looks pretty nice so far, with a high around -2 and a mix of sun and cloud, but there’s snow expected on Sunday.
Plenty of Pets
Penny is a six-month-old Doberman mix who weighs about 40 pounds.
She is house-trained but might have an accident in her new home as she can be nervous. She's also crate-trained and, although she doesn’t like the crate, it’s a good idea to use it as she is destructive when home alone.
Penny does well on leash and loves to go for walks. She adores children and is hoping for a home with children and perhaps another dog to play with. She gets along with other dogs and is tolerant of cats.
Penny is spayed, vaccinated, treated for parasites and micro chipped. She comes with 30-days of free pet insurance courtesy of 24PetWatch. Her adoption fee is $400.
The tidal bore will be coming in at 8:22 a.m. and 8:58 p.m. today.
