I guess I'll be the 1st member to check in here. It seems as if my political views, as well as my use of profanity occasionally, has put me in here with some of my fellow GB'ers. So I figured I'd save the trouble and voluntarily check myself in here. I can post my 5 messages a day in this thread without bothering anyone.

Ya, you can keep your snow Baylee, so far we haven't had much and I hope it stays that way.

Nope, we still complain when it isn't winter because then it is construction season, when a five minute drive takes over 30.

I heard that there is some chocolate around here -- where?

Choco, there's a reason why Winnipeg's nickname is Winterpeg. And in the summer, there is a huge population of the provincial "bird". It has wings, but whines rather than chirps.

Meanwhile in Ontario this has been the coldest month ever, as recorded at the airport in TO. Even we are getting a bit tired of shovelling.

Looks like this has turned into a Canadian plank. Lurking about has its advantages and one of those is that one has the opp to see how others live. Canadians only bitch about the weather. Must be nice, calm, peaceful up there the two months of the year with no snow and ice.

I never really got a chance to put them away. And yes to hot chocolate, lots & lots. I found one that doesn't give me heartburn or headaches. I'll leave a bunch of that here.

How about you Mutter, going someplace warm this year? Don't come here, your feathers will freeze off.

Nope, no way. The heartburn that is followed by a migraine makes it so eating chocolate does not happen. I not sure who <mutter> ate all the chocolate <mutter> but I'm the thehat will be able to determine the culprit <mutter>. :)

Whenever I cross my fingers, it's the same as doing a good deed.

Last time I did a good deed, I was removing snow from a neighbor's driveway with my snow blower. The engine blew up.

I suppose that's supposed to teach me something, but I'm not sure exactly what.

So far so good with the floating away, but none of the crests have got here yet. The flood guessers are calling for two crests this time. The river closest to my house had dropped as of yesterday, we'll see what next week brings.

Just wanted to check and make sure everyone is behaving themselves and staying out of Trouble! I may not check back for a while because it appears that Spring has finally sprung and we are no longer either shoveling our brains out, freezing our buns off, nor swimming for our lives in the post-winter melt down!!!

As long as it is warmer, with the windchill tonight the weather guessers are calling for -46 to -48C. Ugh.

Okay, I don't care. I'm staying here. It is way too cold here. The wind was blowing hard enough to shake the car tonight on our way home from Special Olympics. We came home through town, a bit slower but a bit safer. This is starting to feel like the winter that never ends.

It takes all evening for all my parts to warm up. Yep, I'm staying here. Work will just have to find me.
