Waiting at YOW

img00007.jpgI’m heading to Toronto with my boss today to visit our regional office and observe collection of a survey. Because we’re only going to be there today and tomorrow, we decided to fly to maximize the time we could spend in the office.

Naturally, the weather in both Ottawa and Toronto is terrible and flights are delayed at both airports.

The aviation weather observations in Ottawa are:

METAR CYOW 221600Z 01013KT 1SM -SN DRSN VV006 M05/M05 A2979 RESN RMK SN8 /S03/ SLP093=

SPECI CYOW 221627Z 36014KT 1/2SM R07/2600FT/N R32/2600FT/N SN DRSN VV005 M05/ RMK SN8=

The observations at Toronto Pearson are:

METAR CYYZ 221600Z CCA 36017G22KT 1SM R33L/P6000FT/N R33R/5000FT/U -SN BKN009 OVC021 M03/M05 A2984 RMK SN4SF2SC2 SLP111=

Basically, it’s snowing, windy and the visibility sucks.

And it’s going to be like this for a while.

At least we’re sitting in the Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge, so there’s food and drink.
