Winter has definitely arrived here today. My cat demanded to go out at 3-30 this morning and when I got up at 6-30 to let him back in he was one cold animal.   :sad:  Hes passed out on the couch right now.   :P

 

The wind is howling out there and horizontal snow blowing by. Temps are dropping fast. Hibernating time.    scared011.gif

5-6 inches

 

30cm is a foot

 

conversion for me....is take the celcius temp, double it, add 32....then you get the ferhenheit conversion just fine

when i was 16 or 17, i was out at my cousins, mom was away for a few days, and i was just outside city limits shooting the guns and bbqing........seemed like a good week at the cousins house.........he is about 8 years older than me.........we got hit by a storm, a couple feet in about 4 hours....and it wasnt letting up, he was a 2 min drive form a major highway the 401.........we hopped on the quads with winches and were pulling people out..........we biurned 2 tanks each that night..........froze our butts off, but got alot of families and kids off the road.

 

people wanted to pay us like 50 bucks to do it......we wouldnt take the cash, we said enough for some gas and a coffee.......we had alot of 10's and 20's that night..........still made a couple hundred, got us new suits as we wrote ours off in the muck and oil..........not bad i say!
