Here in town we got 10cm yesterday and at least 30+ cm overnighr and today. The high winds are sure drifting the snow



Put the snowblower away last week. Didn't think I'd need it the 3rd week in April







Next week is supposed to warm up a bit. There won't be much dust on the bush roads when it melts

Speaking of more winter. Get better there Ron! If you had to be flat on your back in April.....you picked the right one!

Gord, we might want to do the icebreaker a week later? Or a month later?
Cheers all

So far, the invitation is still open at my place. I don't think I'll be able to make it due to health issues...but you never know.

Your not missing much here Ron! 16" of snow and 4' snow drifts...pathetic Took me 3 hours to blow out 90% of the driveway...crazy stuff!

Up to over 3 and a half feet of snow in the yard with everything threatening to collapse under the weight of the snow...and it's April 19th

I'm just not going to bother to think about spring anymore

Hope you have some plywood for us to pitch our tents above the snow. Or you could build a few igloos so we can leave our tents at home.

Thanks all!

I once again want to thank everyone for the well wishes...it's far to difficult to answer each individually.

Things are going quite well toward the recovery, they actually are treating me like a bit of a miracle around here.

Gotta go, power failure!

Old Fart, got any Gooses in stock? Looked at a V7 in the States and thought they were pretty cool! Looking forward to May long. Taking the front wheel off the DR and installing a ski! Will I need chains on the rear?
