  1. Jamie earlier there was a piece of news where one of OC Transpo double decker buses (part of their cattle cars LOL LOL) caught on fire picking up passengers out in Vars (just outside of Ottawa) and people were on board. I saw it on and most likely the Ottawa toilet papers would carry the story as well. You should have seen the flames from the bus.

  2. There is no freezing rain as yet where I live in South Ottawa but it will be here soon as well as tomorrow and most likely the rest of the week for all we know. Take care and keep warm.
