Morning all,
Mallet how's the drifting where you're residing. I turned on the outside lights took one look and turned them off again, I'll clean the 2 to 3ft drifts later.
This is now interfering with my fishing, the sooner it stops the better off I'm going to be.

Good morning all.

Most likely the persistent cold weather and the amount of snow we witnessed till today is not even up to standards for many, but I start to be concern.
With a broken plow; removing snow with shovel and snow blower wasn't in my plans and I'd trust Statusquo when he said... aaaaahhh I don't think is gonna snow for a while now. You were wrong. Here is your shovel!

Well, better share another coffee and make myself ready to shovel.

Thanks for breakfast, Bobby. A friendly word of advice; never trust anybody with a rubber girlfriend..LOL..:)

Good morning everyone.

Well, my daughter inlaw and I had a good laugh on my grandson`s Birthday.

I bought him a Transformer and made him some cookies.
I put the Transformer at the bottom of the gift bag and put his wrapped cookies in a grocery bag on top,
He`s like, why is there a grocery bag in with my present, LOL, he didn`t even want to open it and was going to open another present.
I told him, your present is at the bottom of the bag, LOL.
Well, he liked the Short Bread Cookies, he put them in his lunch for school.

Morning People...

Bounder...

What can I say.. The drifts were not that bad when I let the dogs out last, last night, however daylight brings a whole new light on the scene, I shall dig out sometime today.. the blower on the tractor is sure earning its money this year!!! It has been a 16 gallon year already and I am not sure it is finished yet!!!

Bobby... You should have stayed in your man cave, see what happens when you get ambitous.. Now get you out there and shovel, it is good cardiac exercise, someone said, although I think he was in the undertaker business!! Thanks for the goodies!!

Celeste... What can I say, as a young kid there was a war on and prezzies were few and far between, and without trying to sound mean or anything todays kids are somewhat spoiled, in that they expect a lot.. I know my Gt Grand kids are and do...

So all you good people ... get out there and clear snow... have a great day and don't forget lift with the knees and don't twist the back...
Just Curious 1/25/2014 10:18:00 AM Report

Just took Sir Muttly out.. Wow, what a challenge to walk the sidewalks, and yes, I know the plows will be around. They came in the middle of the night and the walks drifted right back in. I don't know about anyone else but I think I have had just about enough of this stuff and so has my dog...LOL :).
mallet 1/25/2014 11:07:55 AM Report

Just Curious...

I let Lord Bailey out,he is not very tall and was plowing a furrow as he walked/bounded through the snow. I do not know what was going through his mind, but that Chuck Berry song came to mind "My Ding-a-Ling"... LOL.
Just Curious 1/25/2014 11:42:19 AM Report

LOLOL... Pretty much how my russel felt, I'm sure....:)
irishfey 1/25/2014 2:06:32 PM Report

irishfey 1/25/2014 2:14:58 PM Report

Have one Sister in Mexico, the other in Cuba... what have i done wrong?? ,lol , but as Mallet once pointed out.. " I don"t get out much "" ,lol Oh well...
Grump 1/25/2014 2:40:41 PM Report

Mallet you are going to have to stop sending that damn snow into town. My driveway was between 10" deep and 3'. I could have got out with my truck so was toying with the idea of leaving it until Monday when the fellows come to work. About then the boss told me she had an appointment at the hairdressers so I got the short straw again. Life is tough for old guys. lol
irishfey 1/25/2014 3:28:53 PM Report

Grump... wasn"t it you that said.. "" happy wife.. happy life.."" ??.. Or was that Mallet?... Just go with the flow, will be easier on ye ,lol.....
mallet 1/25/2014 3:35:02 PM Report


Grump...

I thought you needed the exercise for that knee you had fixed, which is why I had our local FN folks do a "snow dance" just in your honour. Seeing as how it worked for you I shall enquire about a "sun dance" just for me..LMAO..

Seriously though I think we have had enough for this year, getting hard to blow it over the snowbanks. and the roadside banks are starting to make the road narrower, nearly got "ditched" by a heat oil truck yesterday, Ahole was speeding and taking the middle of the road approach, another 6 inches and I would have lost the side mirrors. But at least the days are starting to get longer and the sun (when we see it) is getting higher, but i can see this white/grey stuff hanging around until august this year...Hey and Harper is pissing the money away overseas and not paying the heating bill.... LMAO..

Good afternoon

My brother was just talking about our snowbanks.
He lived in Toronto years ago and brang his girl friend up, she was so surprized to see all the snow and high banks
She`s like, someone take a picture of me, my friends will be surprized.
My brother said the snowbanks were over 8 feet, my eldest sister says they were higher.
My brother thinks it was about 28 years ago.
irishfey 1/25/2014 4:02:07 PM Report

Celeste... Boy, is Spelly going to be talking to ye ,lol.. me.. pot calling kettle black, but you will be getting it ,lol... anyway.. I lived in B.C for a wee time and have photos of the snowbanks there.. 8-10 feet in some, i swear... me Mom lived in Bar River as a child at one point,, photos of high banks there also... I think that over the past years 12 or more, we just got spoiled... what we have now is a "real" winter... nothing we can do, so no use complaining, but we do anyway... snow is for the young of heart,,, snow angles, forts, sledding etc... but the wee ones [ some ] are just not into it anymore.. too much t.v, cell phones etc. they don"t know what they are missing....
celeste5 1/25/2014 4:13:47 PM Report

Irishfey

Hi, are talking about the word Brang, because I know that isn`t a word, LOL.

I don`t see anymore mistakes but I did miss my nap and my snack, that`s my excuse.

Grump 1/25/2014 8:46:20 PM Report

Mallet I guess we shouldn't complain about the snow now. When I was in Public school they had to bring in a TD14 from Algoma Contractors to open up the Second Line as far as Goulais Ave. you could have climbed the banks and touched the power lines had you been so inclined. I also still have photos somewhere where it shows the 8' deep slot dug through the snow to get in and out of my garage. That said I don't want to go back to those days so knock off getting your F.N. pals to do a snow dance for me.
irishfey 1/25/2014 9:00:07 PM Report

The movie sucks ,lol... night all...
