Hello all, hope everybody is having a Merry Xmas.
Santa brought us about 5 inches of snow last night, and he's still in a giving mood...I braved Highway 6 to drive into Hamilton this morning, but I won't be doing much more driving today, I doubt.

Have a grest day, looks like Christmas was white, after all.

Two inches of wet snow and more coming. We don't often have a white Christmas so it is great! Birds at the feeder & fire in the fireplace !

Hope you all are having a great Chrisstmas too!

And 'up north' we have almost no snow, and none on the way. Blue skies today, and highs above freezing all week. Something weird going on with this weather!

I love it! We have got 5" so far and had a great hike out in the forest. Didn't get paddling (sniff, sniff). Heading to London tomorrow, so just hoping the roads are clear, but let it snow! Hope you get some Richard, wax up those skis!

Just drove through all that white stuff near Mactier. Now "way up" north here we've only got about six inches on the ground, but it sure looks like its gonna stay.

But Christmas Eve I was talking to a friend in New Jersey. She'd just come back from kayaking ... hmmm.

Being a Christmas traveler, road conditions from Sarnia last night were quite poor (cars in the ditches); once passed about the halfway mark, it just disappeared!

Safe traveling to all this holiday season!

(about 7cm of snow on the ground 2+3/4 inches)

hmpf... :sad:
bah humbug.
We got 25 inches of snow(about 55 cm) in twelve hours. I worked Christmas Day afternoon and for my largesse, the parking lot was never plowed, so at six this morning there were two missions: one to find the truck(drifts were bad) and two to find someone with a graderor earthmover. Youd think a multibillion dollar company would have a good plow contract but no. So I just got home after 24 hours at work.
It time for a post Christmas nap then some snowshoeing.

We got the snow today here in good ole Cape Breton (dec 26). All the creeks and rivers on the way down through New Brunswick (Dec 20) looked like spring flood. Hubby is off to the World Juniors. Any suggestions on how to stretch the neck of a paddling top? Apple juice can about right?
Cheers!

Here in the Selkirks it has snowed over a foot in the last two hours.We did have a slight skiff fall on Christmas day.Oh well the skiers and sledders will be very happy.No snow for us is very rare.
Vaughn how did your pal make out on his paddle this summer/fall?

Where I'm from a skiff is a small boat. How big was the one that fell in your area? Did it fall off Santa's sleigh? How much do you want for it?
