Today in Oakville: February 7, 2013

Drake: Musician/Actor: Juno Award Winner: Born, Toronto, ON


The snow is coming, the snow is coming. This morning the temperature is a minus 4, and we'll reach a high of minus 2. The wind is coming out of the east ; this traditionally means Oakville gets dumped on, because of lake effect snow. So get out your winter boots and keep a shovel handy. If you are traveling expect delays this afternoon and right through the night. On the up side the days continue to be longer: the sun rose at 7:27 AM and will set at 5:38 PM. Have a great day!

Oscar Peterson: Pianist/Composer: Grammy Award Winner: born Montreal

Quote of the Day

The music field was the first to break down racial barriers, because in order to play together, you have to love the people you are playing with, and if you have any racial inhibitions, you wouldn't be able to do that.  - Oscar Peterson
