    Meanwhile, in my corner of the world, it was 67 degrees yesterday... and it's supposed to get down to a bone-chilling 39 F tonight.:D

    Nice. Really nice. Teasing a poor cornered animal like that. I'll be thinking of you later while i'm snowblowing the entire northern hemisphere.

    Just remember, Santa is Canadian now!

    Ah yes, another horrific accident caused by the weather here. This one out in Gretsch6120 (Ryan) territory - Kingston, Ontario - where we have the Northern Round Up in the bliss of May.

    Cool idea . Will the running board clamps double as a capo ?

    Not snowing too much right now, but enough to coat my front steps, briefly melt, then freeze to glare ice. I had no idea that had happened and went ass over teacup taking the dog out last night.

    I remember being happy to see 39F so I could work on the car.

    LOL, I am. As much as I love the US midwest, I'm not blind to the vicious winters they can experience.

    Northern Arizona?

    I grew up in NW Indiana, just 15-20 miles East of Lake Michigan. We get Lake Effect Snow like Buffalo and Cleveland. My county has 200 miles of marked snowmobile trails. If I have to live where it's cold, I want enough snow to go out and play in it.

    Lots of folks love snowmobiling and we have a ton of them. The joke is that Ontario has seven months of winter and five months of road repair and bad snowmobiling.

    I just checked the website for the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs and they say Ontario has 30,000 kilometres of trails and the economics are $3.3 billion/yr.

    C'mon up. Bring your sled!

    Well my first winter back in upstate NY in 35 years has greeted me with over a foot of white stuff.

    I was especially heartened when after spending an hour clearing my driveway, my eejit neighbor put her car in my driveway so she could clear her driveway - it was still snowing - an hour later she brushed the accumulated snow off her car onto my driveway before moving her car back.

    Can't wait to use her pool this summer - if you get my "drift".....

    Careful, these kind of disputes can easily "snowball" ;)

    A dump truck full of the cheapest rock dumped on her drive in the winter. Can’t park on the street or you get towed so you have to move the rock.

    This guy owned three houses (converted into apartments) across the street from me. After I spend a couple of hours shoveling a foot of the white crap off of my sidewalks, steps, and porch, I go in to enjoy a well earned cup of coffee.

    I looked out to see this twit with a skid steer clearing his sidewalks, driveways, and the on-street parking (illegal) in front of his three places---plowing the packed mess onto my freshly cleared walk. He loaded the skid steer onto his trailer and parked it in front of my place , then went into one of the houses to do some work.

    I spent two more hours with a spade (snow shovel wouldn't cut the packed snow) clearing the mess he left me, throwing it all onto his pickup, trailer, and skid steer. As it was just below 30F, I dug out my hose, and spent 20 minutes giving it all a good healthy coat of ice. Radiator, windshield, etc.

    He spent an hour clearing his truck so he could drive it, never said a word, didn't leave me a mess, and never did it again.

    ----------------------------------------------

    The church behind me had a guy clearing their parking lot, also shoving it onto my parking area. Told the priest who lived next door to me about it. Apparently that did no good. Second time, I just stood out there watching him. He looked confused, but put it onto one side of the lot. Never happened again.
    The parishioners would routinely park in my area, often blocking us in. Easter and Christmas were the worst times for it. They always said, "Well, it's the church's property!" I'd leave 'em doggie surprises as the No Parking signs didn't seem to work.
    ----------------------------------------------

    Making tons of unnecessary work for other is as arrogant and entitled as it gets.

    Cold weather is good. It culls the weak and diseased. :D
