We caught just a whiff of that Mofo that slipped underneath us.
I get it...it must be close to Christmas. )..starting to look a lot
Ho ho ho ho..........ho-frickin'-ho.....
But, as I am just coming off a hernia repair 6 days ago, it is the
kids who will clean the cars and driveways....that is if the little
brats want to eat!!
Yup, just got a little streamer off the big one. Just a dusting.
I can see on the satellite that Tanus is escaping the brunt of it too.
Buffalo, as per usual (Friends in Watertown always get 10 feet..lol).
TO looks like you due some more. My MIL called from Digby NS and told
me there was "a bit of a storm" brewing.
I didn't have the heart to tell her that we may not hear from her for
a few days..<G>
Happy digging, bro'!
We are??? I've shoveled three times and
it looks like I haven't even been out
in it. Took SWMBO's car out at 10 AM and
there must be 8" of shit on it again.
OTOH, I'm not complaining much. No ice
pellets, lots of wood on the stoves, and
enough food to feed a small army here.
We're ok. Yeah, keep sayin that buddy.
Maybe you'll believe it soon.
But I'm glad to hear that Sarnia's
missing most of it. My Mom is 85 and
doesn't react well to snow. Or winter.
Come to think of it, neither do I.....
Dude.. you're near OTTAWA. OTTAWA is indian word for ASSLOADS OF SNOW.
I have a buddy in Gatineau, he's practically begged us to come skating
on the canal.
I figgurred...wtf? On thin strips of metal? In the cold?
Something's wrong with him.
Seriously, the bulk of that storm was way south of us.
It was north of here (Jersey at about the level of NY City), though we did
get 2-3 inches - of SOAKING WET snow, which is now frozen. Streets are
plowed nicely though. Hope the trains run well tomorrow.
I'm actually north of both Ottawa and
Gatineau. We get a tad more here than in
the city but if we missed the bulk of
it, I have great pity (and not just a
bit of glee) for the suckers who got
whomped. I've spent most of the day
shoveling and very little time in the
I skated on the canal in 1979. Froze my
nads off. I'm still lookin for them.
Probably with my skates which I haven't
seen since either. I like winter
for..no, not that...no, not that either.
Um. I know I like it for something.
Gimme a minute here. Oh, I remember. I
like winter cause it's the season before
bass fishing starts.
One nice thing about Florida, no snow - only snowbirds. Christmas
lights lining the fronds of palm trees. Shirtsleeves. So, where is
the snowman, and why aren't the yard apes out there with shovels in
I drove through central and eastern NY a month or so ago. NY and CN,
RI, MA, VT, NH, ME and everything in between there and GA. Last ditch
trip of the season. Still cold as heck at night.
But seeing that most of the snowbirds are from New York, Illinois, and
Ohio anyway, so you should be used to them. They aren't near the
problem that their relatives/kids are. ;-) I can handle about one
week of cold, and one snowfall - enough to throw a few snowballs and
build a snowman. Anything beyond is too much. The interesting thing
about Atlanta is that on the infrequent occasions that it snows these
days, you can wait a few hours for the locals to either slide off the
roads or lock themselves indoors, and the whole wide world is yours.
The few people who venture out past that are either cops, crooks, or
those experienced in the physics of cold weather driving.
As for me, the cold/snow means using up too much kero$ene to work in
the shop. I'm off right now to pick up more insulation.
Two days ago, it was 76, now it's 32. And it feels like snow...
I remember a storm that hit Atlanta many years ago (more than 10-15). The
whole area was shut down. I recall that many people froze to death in
their cars while stranded on the beltway (I'm not sure what the circle
around Atlanta is called; probably Peachtree like every friggin street or
road in Atlanta). It was a freak storm that the people were not prepared
Hank (Been lost many times looking for the the right Peachtree street,
We've about 14" here in Eastern NY (Hunter). I have to get the snowblower
out if I want to ski tomorrow because I can't get the damn truck into 4wd.
The freaking shifter will not budge (time for a BFH).
A "Kummelweck" roll, the sandwich is mostly refereed to as a "Beef On
Weck". If you're ever in the area, in my opinion, the best place to get
one is a little place called "Schwabl's" just southeast of the city
(with a picture of the sandwich):
This particular surgeon has worked at Shouldice, but is now here
locally.He even spoke English!
His work is well respected by many. AND he had a sense of humour. When
I asked him if it was what he had expected, his reply mentioned that
somewhere in the hospital there is a screen-door missing.
Loved the photo. Here (So.Cal mountains) we have had a couple of small
storms which left about 8" on the ground. It's about half melted now
with another wimpy storm predicted for Wednesday. We need snow. About
two feet or so to finally extinguish/smother the underground smoldering
tree roots. Sunny and warm today; may hit 40 dF. Shorts and Ts weather
(yeah, I know. My Florida BIL isn't buying any of this shit either.).
