When winter gets tough, Canadians know how to handle snow! When puny snowblowers won't do, it is time to get out the serious equipment.

Step 1: Scoop

Step 2: Dump

We had a tandem dump truck with a wing plough along with a huge tractor with a blower come in to try to give us some more room to put the snow. It sort of worked, next snow we will be right back to where we started.

I cannot recall ever having this much snow, I can only imagine the flooding to come.

A couple of great pictures, there is a lot of snow piled up there. Good luck to you.
 
Simpler still, move to Omemee. I have blown the driveway from the road back to the barn which is about 400 feet. At no point is the snow more than a foot deep and a lot of it is the fluffy stuff that came in the last two weeks. Kent was telling me that he heard some noise outside his house the other day. There was two of his buddies with equipment similar to the above cleaning out his driveway. There are some good guys around.

Never happened before: Storm everyday and it's a wet snow with a mix of rain .The town snow removal budget is busted and the plow workers are exhausted .So the residence that have pickups with plows ,skid steers ,loaders etc are asked to volunteer . It's pretty awesome to see a hundred or more pickups plowing our roads .I've been assigned a 5 mile stretch along with another fellow and it looks pretty damn good .Should end Sunday night.

Again we know it's Canadian snow because of the maple leaf shaped flakes
 
We`re living more and more in a socialist world where we expect our governments to do everything for us. Now we start seeing cracks where they CAN`T do it all. Budgets shot and it isn`t just all the bad weather to blame for it. Now, we are paying fees on top of our taxes, and hospitals sure invite any money donations. If it wasn`t for good people down there plowing with their own trucks, traffic wouldn`t move at all. A new hospital was built in Peterborough a few short years ago. They needed a bigger hospital. A lady who works there tells me that two floors are now shut down due to lack of funding for staffing. There emergency area is packed with people trying to get looked after so it isn`t for lack of customers. Welcome to our something-for-nothing socialist governments that buy our votes with freebies but don`t have the talent to deliver. My rant for today. I`m done. :swear: :rolleyes:

Must be Free Trade snow.

The power outages down there on the east coast look quite widespread, apart from all the snow and road closures. Good that people are pitchin' in and gittin' 'er done.

Sure hope it improves for you soon.

I'm not complaining but when we loose power here and they loose power in Quebec guess where the New Brunswick line crews head :rofl:
 
I can't believe the snow you guys are getting!!!!!!

Not much snow here! Just freaking cold temperature until today. I guess we are getting a break in the weather for a week, then are going back into the freezer.
 
My home town in Northern Maine may break the 182 inch record this year .I was up there this past week and it didn't seem to phase anyone .Crossed over and returned on the Canadian side and the Canadians just brushed it off . These are areas where men are men and so are the women .:D
 
I've gotten out for the odd walk to the village recently and have done some little projects around the house over the winter but I haven't even felt like doing them. I need a big dose of spring as does everyone else on this site.;)
 
Last week we had a couple of days of plus 6 degree temperature and sunshine. I really am starting to believe that Seasonal Affected Disorder is very real. I just felt alive again.

Very windy here all day today but the sun was out. Lots of deer around, ten on the pathway that I walk the beasts on. The sun is setting a little later each day.

Can Spring be far away now? Man I hope not.

I was just chatting with Tony in Welland and we commented on the forecast for the next week and cold cold cold is about all we're going to get.

Another Polar Vortex has set in plummeting the temps to well below normal for the next week or so.:mad:

As you say tho, at least we have some sun and it looks not too bad ...

SAD is very real Murray -- I'm convinced that it affects me in a noticeable way.

24 days until spring -- there very definitely is spring in the air......I'm hoping once we get thru this next cold snap that we'll see an up trend in temps and weather patterns.
I want to get both vettes on the road by April.1 -- we'll see how that goes.

I found out today that my '94 is eligible for 'collector status' thru Hagerty therefore eligible for a better premium rate. So I'm pleased about that reduction in costs compared to my regular insurance company.

All we need now is some decent driving weather.....Hoping for some good days in April. They probably won't all be good but there should be some good ones and some rain to clean things up some.

I'm cautiously optimistic.
