I can see my BBQ!!!


In a month from now I might get to use it, if things continue at this pace!



But I have to tell myself: Woah woah there, no so quick... 30cm of snow announced by the end of the week. Wait, it changed. Make that 40.

I really need to invest in a snowblower.

Dig out enough to open the lid, then light it. Let the fire melt the snow around it. Do it! Then you can use it!

Just take off the cover before lighting it. In about 15-20 minutes on high it will be ready to go.

By the time comes to put a cover back on it, most of the snow will be gone or going.

That sounds like lot of work since I'd still have to make a path to it, that snow is now very heavy, and we're getting more starting tomorrow anyway. :P I rather just sit around and complain about the weather while eating pizza pops.

We had been in the same predicament as you. just finally got rid of our snow. forecast for tonight thru tomorrow is up to 2 inches of rain. neighbor who works for NWS said last night some lucky folks might get up to 3 inches. I should go buy a spare sump tonight. Or maybe just a clear water pump for emergency.

We have a severe rain and snow warning too, they can't really make up their mind if it's going to be snow or rain, so now they're saying both. Seems like it will be about 30cm or so throughout tonight and tomorrow. Today I managed to get right down to the cement for a large section of my driveway, too. That was short lived. :P

I don't know about this Joe. Two weeks ago, I hit a nice snow storm passing thru your state.

Timmins. You see James Bay? Draw a line from there to Toronto, I'm around the middle, maybe a bit more north and more to the west.

The weather may suck now, but we wont have to deal as much with the sweaty scorching heat either, cost of living is not as bad as the south, and overall society is not as hectic. So it does have it's advantages here. We actually do get summer sometimes. About 2 to 3 months of it. Though I have seen years where summer is basically skipped and it's just cold and it rains every day. THAT sucks.

Spring is actually my least favourite season. It's wet, dirty, and deceiving. One day it can be warm enough for shorts and everything points towards summer being on it's way, then next day it can be a blizzard.

What is this 'snow' thing you talk of?

I almost needed to take my jacket off for the motorcycle ride home today.

We've been getting so much rain that all of the rivers around here are at or above flood stage. I took a drive over one of the main bridges nearby and on the road that follows alongside the river and saw a lot of houses with the foundations covered in water and a couple with water higher than the bottom of their front doors.

Tomorrow - more rain and possible sever weather.

Red Squirrel, maybe you need one of those stoves that has a built-in grill in the center. Then it wouldn't matter if summer completely passes you by.

Ah, Timmins.

Now I'm getting flashbacks of the bible camp I was sent to in some burned down forest up there when I was about ten......
