Snow and blowing snow possible Friday night through Saturday. A developing low pressure system in Montana will spread snow into southern Saskatchewan on Friday night. As the low tracks eastwards into North Dakota, snow will spread through southeastern Saskatchewan into southern Manitoba. The snow is forecast to begin in southwestern Saskatchewan on Friday evening, move across southern Saskatchewan into southwestern Manitoba Friday night, and then push across southern Manitoba Saturday into Saturday evening. As much as 10 to 20 cm of snow is possible in some areas with this system, but there is uncertainty with its track. The primary concern is that this system could end up further south which could substantially decrease the amount of snow that would fall across the southern Prairies. Moderate southeasterly winds will develop ahead of this disturbance, coinciding with the leading bands of organized snowfall. This will produce areas of blowing snow on Friday evening across southern Saskatchewan which could result in deteriorating travel conditions. Blowing snow is also possible in southwestern Manitoba early Saturday. Confidence with this system at this time is low to moderate due to the variability of the system’s track. It is possible that over the next 24 hours the track of the low may shift further south, limiting the snowfall amounts and blowing snow potential.
Dream 3 year vacation, all inclusive for US$30,000 per person per year? Life at Sea Cruises has opened bookings for its three-year voyage on the MV Gemini, which sets sail from Istanbul on Nov. 1. YOU visit 375 ports around the world, visiting 135 countries and all seven continents. The ship will cover more than 130,000 miles over the three years, taking in iconic sights from Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue and India’s Taj Mahal, to Mexico’s Chichen Itza, the pyramids of Giza, Machu Picchu and the Great Wall of China. It even slots in trips to 103 “tropical islands.” Of those 375 ports, 208 will be overnight stops, giving you extra time in the destination. It has 400 cabins, with room for up to 1,074 passengers. There will be a round-the-clock hospital with free medical visits. The company also floats the possibility of “additional tax benefits when working as an international resident aboard the ship.” Cabins run the gamut from 130-square-foot “Virtual Inside” staterooms — which start at US$29,999 per person per year, coming out at US$179,994 for the three-year trip for two people — to Balcony Suites, which are double the size and go up to US$109,999 per person. The cheapest outdoor cabin costs US$36,999 per person. Check out this video of the ship!
It’s the FALLON BURGER! The internet broke when Jimmy went on the Today show to share how he eats his burger. Stick fries IN IT! Fallon is hardly alone in his guilty pleasure, either. Though not one of the top three most popular hamburger toppings in America (those would be cheese, ketchup, and lettuce), a 2020 YouGov poll found that 20% of Americans like putting French fries on their burgers, making them a more preferable topping than avocado, egg, and even ranch.
