Think you got bad weather???
« on: January 10, 2007, 05:49:05 PM »
Mr Weatherman said yesterday that there was a slight chance for blizzard like conditions for most of Saskatchewan's regions.  Guess he had a bit of a clue because this is what we got today.
The first one is out the kitchen doorway.


I got brave and went out to see how bad it really was.  "God hates a coward," as they say. This next one is just leaving down the drive towards our neighbors.  Lloyd's house is only about 75 yards from where I took the picture from.



I took a picture of the doorway to the garage that I used for comparing the storm later in the day.  It's kinda funny how I use the doorway to tell the weather.  The doorway always seems to blow in with snow.  The more the snow the worse the weather.  This one was around 9 am this morning.

 


Here it is at 4pm.




The wind has seemed to have died down a little now , but is dumping a bunch more snow.

I had to rescue our little dog this morning also.  Her doghouse literally blew full of snow.  I had to shovel out the snow and give her a new bale of hay to lay on.  I also banked her house with snow and leaned my hommade patio table to block the doorway some.  Yup, I was definately in the doghouse today and it wasn't fun.

I probably won't get snow now that I have the snow blower and the chains on the  garden tractor.

I think someone better send me some snowshoes. ;D  Oh yeah........... Department of Highways are on strike the mail truck'll never get here.  They'd have to send them by dogsled otherwise.

I bet by morning the snow in front of the garage door is about 1 foot below the top of the door.   ;D

 I pity the poor wildlife in this kind of weather.  Thankfully the elk and deer out at our farm have plenty of feed.  ::)

There's some kind of winter carnival suppose to take place in Fredericton. The committee or whoever in charge has secured $50,000 from the government to truck in snow for it.  ::) They got a long way to go get that snow. I don't think the $50,000 is going to be enough. :D :D

About 4 years ago I think it was, my aunt had to climb out a window to get out of the house. The front door was snowed it and wind packed.

Well, I used to love the winter and snow, Back country skiing, winter camping, ice climbing. Now my favorite winter weather is when the snow is rolling off the roof into the gutter and down the down spout.  ;D It is nice for awhile, but too much of my work is outside these days. Sure looks pretty though.

You guys should try it up here!  It's a cool -42c with a nice breeze to bring the wind chill down to about -55c.  Only nice thing is we only have 5 more months to go till we have our 4 months of spring, summer and fall combined.   But at least the sun will be out 24 hours instead of the moon being out that long.   8)

Always felt snow was nice when you could stay inside and watch it and only go outside when you wanted to. But when you have to get out in it and mess with vehicles whether you want to or not, then it is something else. No, I have not lived here in MS all my life.

Gotta love those blizzards!

I just pulled a double shift 'cause none of the other guys could get to work. Most of them drive in from the country, I walk 6 blocks - and it was a long, tough 6 today.

We are all lucky that we didn't get the weather that Dawson Creek, BC got.  From what I hear you can buy a snow shovel, snow blower, or anything else to move snow.  I forget just how much snow they got but we didn't get nothing compared to them.

Sawguy, that's what I am affraid of.  I have seen pics that were taken years ago when the snow was over the telephone lines.  I remember hearing stories upon stories of people shovelling tunnels right from the doorway of the house to the barn etc, etc, etc,.  I don't want that much but............. if we gotta ahve it we might as well have er now. 

Actually I'd like to see it bu not live it.... :D :D  if you know what I mean ???

Well, sounds like adventure is being had up North. I tell my wife this year is a Tennessee winter in Pennsylvania, most of the time above the 30's and some days a little rain, but alot of sunshine too. Last night was 18 degrees, no big deal for you northerners. I would need one of those "artic bubbles" you see on the Learning Channel to work outside my shop. BBRRRRR.
