I have both Vipers covered in the garage.  When I pulled the ACR outside I left it covered to save the paint from the snow.



30F and hoar frost in trees.

My Buddy lives 100 miles directly north of me (near Prince George) and he went out sledding already.   :idk:

Here we're still sitting with only 4" of snow.  >:( 

Daughter's coming home from 36C/100F+(?) Australia and we don't have enough snow to go sledding!!!! :(

We had a quick shot of 50 degree weather yesterday, so I washed/polished my car, got the oil changed and put the charger on it.

I told Ted I cried when I put the cover over it, I think I detected some laughing in his words. :headscratch:

Yeh, ok so I am 'attached' to my Viper, not a big deal :idk:....RIGHT?

Leslie, I wasn't really laughing, but I admit that I did smile.  And I thought I was attached to my cars :lol:  Guess you outclass me.

Leslie, I hope that you meant you put on your "Battery tender"  not charger?  Big difference between them.  charger I'd plu in at 2amps of 1 day every 6 weeks.  Battery tender is a plug in until teh summer as it has a electronic circuit that monitors the charge and stays off most of the time.

Phil, if you want to excite me tell me that you golf with a 1200cc Rice Rocket engined Golf Kart?  Of do you walk, and carry your clubs?  You have a sc'd GTS.  You get to drive it?  I just wear a "Jack shirt" (Lumberjack insulated shirt) when I go outside.  About 40F today and the sun was blinding.  Best tanned are from being in the sun on water or snow. 

Worst sunburns I got were during spring and summer snow skiing, trip to Costa Rica and a fishing trip or two.  I only fish for the relaxation, no use for CR and sledding I always wear a jacket and pants because 70F at 100+mph is still cool at 7,000'

I could  :'( seeing all that snow wasted!  Get all the junk out of the way and pile the snow against the fence would make a good jump?   :P

Not sure what's on the other side of the fence?

I really hope that's coming towards westeren Canada.  News keeps showing sattelite images of snow clouds and the snow is landing in all the wrong places. 

There are so many snow/winter tires being sold I needed 1 so that my set is all like new and even though Cdn$+US$ the single new tire for my Stealth cost me $240 + taxes ($5 "pre-disposal fee, eco taxes and 12% HST) which is +$60 tire price and extra taxes.  You Notice a PRE DISPOSAL FEE?   All old tires, oil etc go into the ground and get buried and we pay extra taxes for the dump. 

The cold means I can't paint my panelling outside.  The wife says I can't paint my panelling inside the house ... so the Viper's heated garage is the only option left.  I did pad and cover the viper though.

The pics were taken from the rear patio doors, the patio is raised from the middle of the garden, the fence is 8ft high and the other side of it is the access road to my garage at the rear of the garden.  If you jumped the fence with a snow mobile you would end up impaled on the neibours fence the other side of the access road ;)  Access road is approx 10ft wide ;)

Even more snow today  :-\

Got a very light coat of snow earlier in the week, funny thing is on the other side of the river people got way more than over here  :headscratch: Really hoping it will last until after Christmas and New Year's!!! I let my dad borrow my winter tires (mounted them on new rims yesterday, mounted wheels on car right after work today) because next weekend my Calibra is going into restoration mode anyways and will not see asphalt anymore until it goes to paint sometime next year.

10 feet?  How far would it take to clear the neighbor`s yard?  120 ft is not uncommon 

over the shack to flat landing
