There's about 5' of snow in front of the ramp and the harbour is frozen solid. Those pics were taken across the point, about a 10 minute walk through the woods... lots of water, but no way to get the boat there...

The ramp in town is way down in the far right corner of this picture... taken from just out in front of my house...

Stoo,

Sounds to me like you need a SIB! Just strap the folded boat, motor, gas tank & foot pump onto a pulk sled, then head on over to that lovely spot with the open shoreline!

Now that is SIBbing !

Damn glad I don't live there I think I would be joining the Californians in Mexico at about the 25 bellow mark!! But it’s all what you get use too. I think PT said it "you can dress for 25 bellow" but at a 100+ you can only strip down so far before people start taking photo’s of you like the one of Rogan and posting them on RIB.net :-)

Funny you should mention that. A few years ago, a friend of mine in Toronto was feeling dehydrated, so we decided to do a dive in Toronto Harbour on a wreck that's there. The problem was that the water close to shore was frozen... it was mid-February if I recall correctly... but not all of the way out to the site. My friend had an old steel punt that we tossed down onto the ice, piled our gear in it, then pushed it out to the water, rowed it the rest of the way out, and had a delightful dive.

What was rather humorous though, was when we surfaced, we were met by Toronto Marine Police in a Hovercraft... someone had reported seeing a couple of nuts out there and they presumed we were suicidal or something I guess. Anyway, they actually FINED us $245 for diving in the harbour without a permit. We knew we needed a permit in the summer, but since most of the harbour was ice, and there was no boat traffic... Ugh...

On the upside, they helped us winch our little boat back across the ice and up the retaining wall... but they still fined us!

Happy Freakin Valentines Day!!! Old Man winter drops the hammer!

Last night I plowed for TWO hours clearing just my driveway and my neighbors. My trusty Honda 4 wheeler clears snow pretty good but this was ridiculous and still is. I had to turn my plow sideways to the drives and plow half the snow that was already piled about 4 feet further back into the yard and then come back and plow the rest of the pile into the yard as well. Only then could I take a normal pass up and down the drive clearing to one side or another. I will have to repeat that process here again today, sucks. For all you snow lovers out there I have one thing to say: Snow always blows!!!!!

Just finished the morning/afternoon plow, another eight inches. You need a snowcat or something like that for these conditions, deep snow! I don't think even Codprawn"s legendary landy could handle these Lake effect snows. When Lake Erie is not frozen it really gets cranked up, a lot of snow in a short time.
A picture of my most hated hand tool next to the snow for a comparision to demonstrate what has occured in the last 16 hours, FUN!!
