The past 3 days have sucked!!  The county road I live on is still covered with about 1-2 inches of ice as well as everything else.

 

Yesterday we started hearing these loud pops like someone is on the roof, not sure if it is the ice shifting or what.

That's awful compassionate of you, but up here we work with the metric system, and I'm

not obligated to wait a week. As soon as I get the trailer dug out of the snow bank, I'm

heading that way. If I hurry, I can get most of them before your week is up. :D

Wait a gosh darn minute there. What part of that isn't the metric system? 24 hours or a week? Darn Canadians..............

A quart of gasoline and a match is very effective for ice removal. Just saying.

Plus I've got the metric time zones in my favour too, but I see it's all for not.

John is back on line, and not in a snow bank. :D

 

Good to see you survived the storms. Mrs and mother nature.

Ice storms are why I have several generators and  5 gallon cans of gas in the basement for the winter. I also carry a small bucket with sand and salt mix in my car. Merry Christmas. Good Luck, Rick

Just a word of caution your house or attached garage is never a good place to store gas.

Wow, glad your tractor wasn't out in that ice storm!

The ice just missed us, we got nothing but rain, but the north side of the Detroit metro area got that same ice storm. Nasty, I'd much rather have snow than ice.

John if I were you grab a bag of food and drink and slide out to the garage,bolt the door and turn up the heat and work on your projects.

Sounds like the wife is steaming about her car,when she gets red hot tell her to stand by her car and the ice will melt :mad2:

 

Hence the reason to grab food and drink-----You may be staying in the shop for a few days :D

whoa say what---metric time----Everyone knows time is measured by the following formula----24 beers in a case----24 hours in a day :D

I got an old Bronco II in the wifes parking spot right now so she's not so happy about that, but it is my 'shop', not her 'garage'... anyway Im trying to smooth things out with a remote starter for her car under the tree, will see in an hour or so if it works...lol

A yes, the good ole SET*. That works in most cases :D :D :D
 
 
 
 
 
 
* SET – Spousal Equity Tax. If you’re lucky, it only amounts to 100 percent of the cost of whatever it was you bought without SWMBO’s blessing. Usually in the form of new furniture, carpets, a complete remodel, or even a new house
