  1. Good on you Smerch. Yes, shovelling seems to be a high risk activity. Fathers of two of my kids friends had heart attacks this week both snow related, both in their 50's, one made it one didn't.
  2. I bought a snow blower years ago to save time (and my back). It didn't end up working out that way though as I ended up clearing mine and then four neighbours yesterday so no time savings after all! Oh well!
  3. This was child's play compared to the blizzard of 77, That was a true balls to the wall blizzard, this was just a little dusting in comparison.
  4. Agree, unfortunately I'm finding that getting older and wiser isn't nearly as much fun as being young and stupid!
  5. Looks like it's starting to shape up nicely. Going to get the Argo ready for the first Erie trip of the year. Need to be ready! A buddy wanted to hit the Grand today, I took a pass but maybe next week. Something about thin ice and current doesn't excite me any more! Must be getting old?
  6. That's a bummer. I've done a few fibreglass repairs and they are very time consuming, not really difficult but kinda tedious. If you had to pay someone else to complete the repair it would be cheaper to replace. Once you grind out all the damaged glass you are going to have a hole the size of a basketball to glass back in so definitely not a quick fix. Once you have all the damage removed then one carefully laid layer of glass cloth on the inside, then you can start building it up on the outside until you match the thickness of the rest of the hull. If you want to pm me I can give you some tips
  7. Ski wax and elbow grease should do the trick
  8. Talk to Rainville's auto on Montrose Rd, White Pigeon. Dan is a top notch mechanic that is the most honest guy around. He'll tell you the best option with no BS
  9. I bet that walk was uphill both ways and you had to share one pair of boots with your siblings for the trek, and fight off bears and Indians on a daily basis! The good ole days!
  10. I was ten during the blizzard, luckily my mom picked me up from school. A lot of kids were stuck there for a night or two. I remember the one side of a buddy's grandmothers house up the street had a drift right up to the roof ridge. We were sledding down her roof! Cars abandoned everywhere on side streets etc. totally buried you couldn't see them. I believe a snowmobiler hit a chimney in Fort Erie if memory serves me correct. The only good thing that came out of the blizzard was snow days. After the blizzard if there was any snow at all they would cancel the buses. A few snow flakes in the air would have us glued to the radio and praying for a snow day!
  11. Glad there are some old weather veterans still around. If a Hurricane hit and flooded Toronto today, they'd have us riding recycled bicycles as our only option of transportation and eating tofu and grass clippings for our three squares a day!
  12. The wife can't argue with that logic! Ha
  13. It would be interesting to know what all those customs agents are doing with only two lanes open? They've been twittling their thumbs on full pay for a year and a half and only two boths open when it's time to get back to work? On our return trip from our deer hunt in NY two weeks ago, it was painfully slow coming back and they sent a team of three agents to check out my guns! Arghh!
