With all the problems in the USA with the labour dispute and the changing from the cheaper winter gas to the more costly summer gas we will see and increase at the pump and of course the loonie is weak so that is a factor also. They say we are getting a storm tomorrow hope not. Have a good evening

Joisygal hope you had a good weekend. I know it wasn't long enough. Of course my weekends are long enough

Good afternoon GASBAR...sunny day with a high of -5°C feeling like -12°C with the wind chill. Errand day...all done. While running my errands I saw gas increase 10 cents per litre(nothing like organized crime)....topped up my tank to beat the increase. Have a great day.
Joisygal...have a great day

Attitash yes it will not be long before you will be biking again instead of skiing.
went out again today and tomorrow looks like we will get to go out again but Tuesday they are calling for snow so that will be a no bike day

Joisygal hope today went well for you.

Good morning GASBAR...cloudy day here with a high of -3°C. Possible light scattered flurries late this afternoon. Decided to take this week ahead off work & get some ski time in. March break is a few weeks away & after it the ski hill might remain open another week. A short season in Ontario. Have a great day.

But this weather has been extreme cold and snowy and I know only too well what can happen to someone riding in that stuff. I learned 1st hand a couple of years ago

Happy hUMp Day!

Those temps I posted yesterday were in F, so -7F is -22C. 8 years ago north of Whitehorse, YT (Braeburn to be exact) is where I had felt my coldest weather ever, -26C or -15F for us USians. That's when we went to see the Yukon Quest Sled Dog Race, which started in Whitehorse that year and ended in Fairbanks (they swap start/end locations each year). But with no wind and no humidity there in Braeburn I was able to take off my toque & gloves, unzip my parka & felt warmer & more comfortable there -n -26C than a windy humid +20F in NY.

Of course we had to have the famous Braeburn Lodge Cinnamon Buns (someone else's trip in that link, not mine), each of which overflows the sides of a dinner plate. Sandwiches are that big too!

Gggggggggggood Mmmmmmmorning Ggggggggasbar!

We woke up to -7 this morning, other parts of Rockland County NY were down to -10. Canada calls us wimps. We down near NYC just doesn't see these temps most winters. Bundled up for work & made it to the office, just having my first cup of hot Tim Hortons coffee for the morning. Last time I felt temps this cold and colder was 8 years ago in February and I was in the Yukon territory at the time for Sourdough Rendezvous and the Yukon Quest sled dog race!

Good morning GASBAR...one more cold day to go. Sunny with a late afternoon high of -14°C. I`ll be heading to the ski hill with a temp of -24°C feeling like -37°C. Conditions are good & the ski season is a short one with about 5 weeks to go so I`ll ski 3-4hrs in the morning. Not tired of winter....another 8 weeks please! Have a great day.

attitash glad you had a good Birthday and a great ski day. This is my thoughts on Winter

Dear Winter

I'm breaking up with you
I think it is time I started seeing other seasons

Summer is hotter than you

I know Joisygal will like the above.

Good afternoon GASBAR...a big smile on my face this morning when I saw 10cm/4" of fresh snow this morning & took the day(along with tomorrow) off to get some skiing in. A bigger surprise when I saw 20cm/8" of light powder fell at the ski hill. Had an awesome day skiing with a comfortable high of -9°C/15.8°F. Expect another super ski day tomorrow but with colder temperatures. Enjoy the rest of your day.
Thanks to the both of you for the birthday wishes...was a great day!

Good afternoon GASBAR.....carried on a long time tradition of skiing on my birthday. Turned out nice with sun & a high of -9°C after a cold start to the day. Off with the family for a birthday dinner(tough to get everyone together)....my best present. Bet I still get stuck with the bill! Winters now are nothing compared to the ones back in my younger days! Have a great day.
