DAMN WINTER !!!!

Postby Large_Sarge » March 10th, 2008 06:27 PM

OK, so yeah, we got hit with 50cm this past weekend. Shite. It took my girlfriend and I two hours to shovel the driveway, the rear walkway, clean off and dislodge my truck and her car. Once we were done, the plow came by and gave us some more to finish. We also helped two neighbours after the plows went by. In total, it took us 2.5 hours.

Some guys car had been stuck there since 5:00am. Me and some other guys ended up digging and pushing him out at about 7:30pm.

Some people cross-country skiing own the street. Guess the other sled dogs were busy.

The car, still stuck after the plow went by. These snowbanks are from the last 2 days. The road and snow crews had come by Friday night before the snow started flying to clear the old ones (just as big).

This season has seen a record snowfall. The last time was in 1970/71 were we received 444cm in total. We're just below that now and we're supposed to get more. This guys place in the burbs is a great example.

I'm so completely sick of winter. Last year, we had hardly anything. Snow didn't start falling until mid Jan.
I'm so glad I keep the wagon guarded from this crap.

Now that's a "Mountain of Snow"! You should be the one putting the heated seats in the wagon this winter. My wife spent most of her teen years in Toronto and knows what the winters were like. I ask her every once in a while if she would like to move back and the answer is "No" even before I can finish my question. Well if they're still playing hockey in June the snow may just be gone by then.

No need. My wagon spends the winter indoors in a friends barn. She's a summer only ride. I have my 4x4 for this mess.
I do think I'll put some in the girlfriends echo though.

2 weeks ago I was in New Mexico & Texas on a military exercise (Ft Bliss). It was great weather. I hate the fact that I had to come home to this.

DUDE!
That last picture is a STINKIN Crap load of snow, Gotta say tho... I love the snow, The wagons sit nice and low, and there heavy... Wonderful for ripping around tight corners and not worrying about dying, (usually) But thats over now, kuz i aint gonna put my baby through another winter. Gotta say tho the sedan...no good. (but im not dead so no real complaints here) Gotta love Dounuts in the snow!!!
Thats my 2cents
Cheers!
