A Snowy Struggle / Extreme Cold Weather Alert
Aren’t Fridays when we’d prefer to get home the fastest? Especially with a long weekend upon us! Mother nature says enjoy the struggle first – London is under a snow squall watch, we could see more than 10 cm of snow between this afternoon and tomorrow morning, and there could be another 10-15 cm possible throughout the day.
Middlesex London Health Unit has also issued an extreme cold weather alert for this evening when the temperature drops to -15 without the wind chill. That will continue until Sunday when we’re looking at -10. Family day isn’t looking too bad at -1 for now.
***Londoners looking to help can donate extra coats, hats, boots, mittens, non-perishable foods, blankets, and sleeping bags to the Men’s Mission at 459 York Street, the Centre of Hope at 281 Wellington Street, or the Unity Project at 717 Dundas Street.

Snoop Dogg Loves Canada & It’s Cannabis
Snoop D-O-G-G played the London Music Hall earlier this week, and it seems like he was also here on Business. A day later, he sent this tweet out:

Turns out Snoop has partnered with an Ontario medical marijuana plant. This gives Tweed INC out of Smith’s Falls, just south of Ottawa, exclusive rights to use content & brands owned by Snoop’s company, LBC Holdings. In return, Tweed INC will pay Snoop for cash & stock. Snoop just launched his own cannabis line in Colarado, Leafs by Snoop – this three year deal with Tweed INC is his first Canadian deal.
Snoop also helped do some fundraising for the Toronto District School Board through a Poetry Jam at Jarvis Collegiate Institute, with a celebrity basketball game to raise money for books!
He’s everywhere right now…including the new Burger King Hot Dog ad (p.s. sorry, Burger King dogs aren’t available in Canada yet).
