Talk about snow!!

How are you guys making out with all this white crap that got dumped on us ?

Spent an hour shovelling the driveway, and cleaning the snow off the FX2 today. Freakin crazy.

Snow, what's that? We have had 51 cm this month and first of the week was -33.6 and -42 wind chill.

Such is life. Just passing through.

I was in StMarys tonite and they only had a cm or two, I didn't even see any snow plow marks. saw a pic posted on weathernetwork from ailsacraig and it looked like more than a foot in one storm. probably the same streamer that got london.

squalls of Lake huron can be really nasty with a North wind or even NW. don't worry, it will freeze up soon

Shovelling for an hour ? Fer Christs sake man, the next time you think about dropping $1000 on mods for your truck or your Mustang, go to Cambodian Tire or Home Depot and buy a snowblower.

That shovelling thing gets real old, real fast, I swear the first time you rip through that shit with a snowblower you'll wonder why you waited so long to get one.

I understand that shovelling is free, and it's good exercise as long as you don't have heart failure, but freezing my ass off shovelling doesn't rank up there as a good time.

You could even consider getting a set of folding aluminum ramps on sale (usually 50% off) at CTC for loading and unloading into the FX2.

Don't forget a set of those ratcheting tie downs with the nylon straps, so you can make sure the ramps don't slip off the tailgate when you're halfway up.

Jeez, late edit on this one, but 20 inches of snow in London ? Yikes.

Yah, it's blower time.

It's nice living in the Banana Belt. We got, Maybe 4" in Guelph. In Muskoka, we called that Frost...LOL. And you're right Mike, Snowblower, is the only way too go.

No snow yet. A few flurries so far.

On Weds, we're supposed get 30 mm of rain and 12*C

Snowblower will be waiting a few more days I guess....lol

We just had a light dusting here on the weekend. It's gone now just cool. Can't wait until tomorrow or Wednesday when we are supposed to get a couple inches. It's fun to watch all the city slickers down here trying to drive in it. You'd think they have never seen it before.
