In the morning of March 4, 2012, I ran 19 km in Ottawa. The -10 deg C temperature was below normal. The sidewalk was quite icy but fortunately, the wind (the same tornado system that killed many in the US) had died down.
In the afternoon, I went with a friend to snowshoe on the Wolf / des Loups Trail in the Gatineau Park. From the Blanchet parking lot P13 at the west end of Meech Lake, we climbed abt 200 metres up & did the 8 km loop in approx 2 hours (actual running/walking time was 1h20). The snow condition was excellent
