Sinc, even after last winter's 17 feet of snow, we had some water rationing for a couple of weeks here in St.John's because of a very hot/dry late June/July and early Aug. I know that the lack of snow has hurt the folks in Calgary over the past few years as well. My heart really aches for the Alberta cattle ranchers, rather than the home gardners, in terms of drought and Mad Cow bans.

Yes Dr. G., it has been a tough few years. I think you would see a smile on most faces if we got some really big dumps of snow. Both the pastures and the grain fields need it badly.

The mad cow scare has had a devastating effect on some rural communities, and I continue to marvel at the way we, and our fellow Canadians have kept up their consumption of beef. It is a beg help in a poor situation for cattle producers. And it is appreciated, believe me.

Cheers

Sinc, Max and the four doxies do their part for the Alberta ranchers. They are all on a natural diet of Grade A Alberta beef, local chicken, vegetables, eggs, oil and vitamins, etc, all ground up, and fed to them twice a day.

Cranbrook is situated in the Columbia River watershed and sends its fluid contribution into the Pacific Ocean at Portland, Oregon.

The weather is balmy @ -20 this evening in between light snowfalls. Bolor, you make me shiver when reading how chilly it is in Timmins.

I really like winter. I am particularly fond of the the last two days of it.

Woke up to a Sinc-like -9C this morning (thankfully, no windchill). The few centimeters of snow that fell overnight has no real weight to it because of the dry cold we are experiencing. Strange....

LGB, we get a week or two of this every year. If you check the link you'll see that this is not the norm. The good news is that it's not snowing

Bolor, I can't imagine what the snow might feel like in those extreme temps. It would be like styrofoam, with an inability to compact for making a snowball.

Luckily, I am teaching four web courses, all from home. I start at 7AM and go off and on throughout the day until about 11PM. Thus, I am able to work without interruptions, take the dogs out, shovel, check on ehMac, and never have to move the car out of the driveway. [img]smile.gif[/img]

It is -19 this morning and headed for a high of -7, the warmest day since Christmas, but as you can see here we are headed downwards again with not much let up in sight.

I don't mind the low temps, but the wind is tough to take some days. It cuts right through you.

Cheers
