Damn, I hate when this happens!

That's it. It's official. Four feet of snow has been plowed into the ramp. Summer is over!

Just 3 1/2 weeks 'til my first ski trip of the season!

Lucky sod - swap for our weather anyday - constant high winds - up to 101mph and torrential rain - if all that rain had turned to snow we would be about 20' under by now!!!

Snow = 4x4 fun - skidoo fun - skiing fun - just fun with a capital F!!!

Come visit Winnipeg this winter! Around here, the capital F that's used to describe our weather does'nt stand for fun, it stands for"F***ing Freezing!"

No argument there Cod... It's the "between seasons" I don't care for. I haven't been diving for a month, and it will be almost a month before skiing starts in ernest. The worst of it is that the SO figures she has an 8 week window for me to do the chores I've been dodging all year!

I hear you guys have it pretty rough temperature wise.. Some years ago I met some very lovely Canucks in Cancun on vacation in January, all bikinied out, said they were from Alberta, they told me they spend most of the winter wearing snowmobile suits when out and about, now that has to be brutal!

I think the Victoria's Secret store in Winnipeg is the only one that sells one-piece red long johns. No doubt about it though, if a woman looks hot in a snowmobile suit, then she must be HOT!

I would agree, although I think they generally look hottest in their BIRTHDAY suits, as I think we all can agree... How bout ya Cod, what do you think?

Stoo you and Tuber don't have to answer, I "know" what you Canucks think and do around birthday suits, I've partied with enough of you on boats to know with absolute certainty...
