Snow Removal Today

Good Day,

I never thought I would need to shovel IRENE. The marina parking lot and docks were a mess this morning!

Hope your day is filled with sunshine and water NOT in a solid state.

Bit of a shocker for you southerners, I bet!

Up here, you get worried when the boot stripe is under water (7’ of snow in two days)

I'd like to tell you I miss shoveling that stuff, but I really don't.

This is hilarious, where I live we'd barely notice this light layer of snow.

If you have hydronic heating, you can install a couple fittings on deck and leave a hose setup, empty, snaked around where you need it. When you need to clear the deck you open a valve and the hose and melted water does the hard work. Later drain the hose for next time.

Please don't talk about snow removal anymore, I spent more than 2h today shoveling 40cm of snow we got, plus the mountain the snowplow left in front of my driveway, plus the snow over my shelter that wind accumulated.
Aahhhhh winter sport, that's really something!

Had to dig out for about an hour and a half. Got all the way to the road and got good and stuck. Some guys (4) came buy and pushed numerous times and finally we made it to the road.

Took the other picture as we came home .. near home.
Fog was closing in.

We were able to get out of the drive and down to the boat storage barn. With 4WD we made it through the yard to the barn in order to sand on our teak decks for a couple of hours until my back and knees gave out. Gotta love the winter.

Last Sunday a.m. we were in the Phoenix area enjoying mid 60's temps. We (stupidly) got on an plane and are now in WA. Shoveling the 16" of snow out of the driveway.


Next year I won't be so quick to listen to my wife when she says she misses the grand kids and thinks WE should go home.

That is some serious snow, Murray! We are accustomed to 140 inches/year - and all that comes with it - from our prior location.

Fortunately, IRENE was 99% thawed out when I visited today. Turns out, that snow we had was dirty...so I hosed her off.

Kitimat, or more accuratly, Kitamaat, means "People of the Snow" in the local First Nations Haisla language, so you know it can snow a bunch when it wants to!!

Our driveway drifted over with hip-deep snow...we look right into the teeth of the frigid gale coming down the Fraser valley. Two hours shoveling, then out to the boat for another 45 minutes of miserable work.

I was at work today commiserating with a colleague who also owns a wooden boat about what a PITA it is to keep clearing the snow off the boat. Another coworker with a boat mentioned that he uses a leaf blower and it only takes him a few minutes.

My buddy and I looked at each other like we had just learned about the invention of the wheel.

Now that's a proper snow fall. Anything under a foot is a dusting.
