Crazy Weather Part II
 
Not sure why our car insurance covers these kinda "incidents" where I am. Boats are meant in water not cars or trucks. Ice fishin, our 3rd national sport in the Great White North after hockey and curling. Hopefully everyone saw that movie Grumpy Old Men with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.:)

I love to ice skate.

Looks like they caught a big 'un.

These from some of Yuri's east coast countrymen in Newfoundland. Not new but scary. I got these a couple years ago to share with a friend that also has a red VW van, which I think is one of these photos.

Notice how close to the water, ocean they are. Montreal is bad for freezing rain and ice storms in the Winter also.

I've seen that bottom picture before and it's pretty awesome. Probably not for the owner though... :no:.

There are a couple other pictures online of cars inside a garage with thick ice on them also. A water line in the garage burst during the winter, while the home owners were away on vacation.

Yeah, hard to tell if the ice on the cars is fresh water from freezing rain or frozen salt water from wind whipped spray... or probably a mix. In any case that is the day you hope your remote start works to start and defrost the car a bit from the inside... assuming the exhaust pipe isn't blocked by ice.
