You probably know this, but this:
..is what we woke up to. Not that that was a surprise or anything.
It’s a winter wonderland.
Don’t slap me.
Great fun to sit and watch the knobs get stuck at that corner, by the way. Is that mean?
The following will either make you feel nostalgic or smug. Depends on where you are.
Then of course, after making my NFL picks for this week, I figured I’d get out there and tackle it.
Um, that would be ‘sarcastic font’. Just thought I’d point that out.
It had mostly stopping snowing last night when we came in from our grand day out, and I thought I might have some difficulty backing up the driveway to put the car in the garage. Didn’t happen.
We have that whole “Four Matic” program going on there, and it does seem to make a difference in “adverse conditions”. There are numerous explanations on the web.
I didn’t kill myself shovelling. Not this time anyway. It’s surprising how quickly I had to first briefly come inside and take off a sweater I thought I needed, followed by having to remove my hat. It’s a helluva thing when you start to overheat at -7°C.
Is that a “Canadian” thing, or just an “Old Dude out of shape,” thing?
I think I’d go with option two.
My neighbour asked me if I had a blower, and I had to admit that in fact, I *do* have a blower. Sitting out back under the snow. It would need many things to get it running again I’m afraid.
It hasn’t been run for a couple of years (remember that whole living overseas thing?) and the last time I took it in for a “going over”, the small engine repair Dude quite frankly told me that he’d get ‘er going, but doing much more than replacing the drive belt would just be a waste of money. I might just look into buying another machine one of these days. I’m not overly keen on paying the price of a new one though. You know me.
“Oh, heated grips, that would be awesome!”. Then of course I realise, it would just be one more thing to break.
What we need is one of those winters when we have NO SNOW (hey, it happens!) and then there’s an abundance of used blowers in the classifieds as the winter winds down. Not that I’d want to take advantage of anyone or anything, but if it’s taking up room in your garage and the word is, “get rid of that thing”, I’m willing to help out. You know, ‘cause I’m so “helpful”?
I reckon that’s all I got for today. A Sunday post is a bit of a rarity for me as it is, so this’ll have to do.
I think I’ll go watch some football.
Keep it on the hard pack.
Thanks for looking.
