    I can relate. In the 40°s here and raining. Gear all in a closet. Bah humbug!

    Wouldn't be to hard to fab that canopy idea yourself for a few bucks.
     
  3. One could, but why?

  4. Go cook something. Then invite me over to help eat it.

    I think I'd rather you cook something for dinner and more peanut butter sandwich cookies and I'll come over there! LOL!

  6. That works for me. At least there is less distance between us than to Nick.

    Given that it's barely 40° and raining for the next several days, I will enjoy my 14 day trial of Cook's Illustrated! LOL!
     
  8. 40 and I'd be outside. We hit a high today of 9. I bet that canopy thing is fun in the wind.
     
  9. And I wonder how well it will shed ice? I guess you could also line the top with solar cells . . . . :rolleyes:

    Ice came out of the sky all day today. Interstates were closed and those that ventured out ended up in ditches. I'm thinking this is a perfect time for me to check out those useless gadgets... :D

    With my ageing biceps more weight is all I need but if you smoke it could keep the baccy dry.

  13. There is white stuff on the ground in Vancouver and I don't know what it is.

    Any suggestions?

    Maybe I should get one of those roofs for my walks?

  14. The only way to handle that white stuff is with a good glass of wine (or winter warmer of your choice) in your hand, some good music on the speakers, a warm blanket and a good book.

    Why not a head-mounted rack, about 1.5 meters wide and a couple of meters long, with roll-down sides would be perfect.
     
  15. Be careful around that white stuff on the ground. It can be very slippery, I’ve actually heard rumors that people strap boards to their feet and slide down hills on it. My advice is get yourself to the airport, book a ticket to Hawaii and stay there until the white stuff is gone. I used to do this, but my wife threatened me if I continued doing that.
     
  16. I hear that Hawaii got some white stuff the other day!

    And even more significant, I had to help my wife shovel white stuff this morning! :love: :love: :love: 
     
  17. Yeah, but not on the beaches where I hang out.
     
  18. I was just out on my second 3 hour pass today plowing snow with my ATV. Everyone laughs when they here about us complaining about snow here on Vancouver Island, they really don't know much, we have about 2.5 feet in about 30 hours time span and it is supposed to snow all night, so tomorrow morning I get on my steel horse again... I hear that Seattle is being pummeled even more then we are, and its cold
     
  19. We've had and bout 10" of dry stuff, but it's supposed to warm up and continue snowing, meaning--heavy wet stuff that should fall on the Cascades!
