Great year to have a snowmobile... :)


Have about 2 feet of accumulated snow (not counting drifts) in the fields around my place. Temp this morning was -34C...roughly -40C with wind chill.

Was -27C last night with winds gusting to 70km/h (wind chill of -47C)

Great time of year to have an outside job eh. :lol: ... :? ... :(

here on Vancouver island we can't even open the local mountain for skiing... one of the dryest and mildest winters we've had in 50 years...

In my part of Maryland we got 14 inches of snow last night, but we are supposed to get at least 4 more tonight. I love it!

I'm never opposed to helping somebody out. I doubt I would be able to make it anywhere right now though. Between snow plows and drifts, my truck is pretty much buried.

It is snowing again now. Supposed to get at least 4 more inches here in Bel Air.

Did the ice storm knock your power out? We went 3 days with out.
