More fun hockey stuff and the temps are about even, F and C, that's not great.

Where are we today ?
New Hamburg Ontario Canada
          First thing this morning heading into Plattsville, Grandson number 4 has a hockey practice at 8:30 am. But when I opened the door notice we had a few inches of snow overnight, yuk!
         No problem fired up the snow blower after brushing off the car and quickly cleared the driveway and sidewalks.
not a great drive
         Checked out the practice and chatted with his dad and daughter number 2 for a bit then back home to pick up Suzie for the the 10:30 game for Grandson number 1.
          Back for the game and it was awesome. They defeated the New Hamburg Team 4-1
, first time this season !
       Drive back to New Hamberg not great either, but we take our time and made it safely.
       We had abite for lunch then Suzie and her Dad headed into the hospital to visit her Mom. I puttered around for a while did some more snow blowing and actually had time to whip around the corner again for a bit. Indoor track I did 1.5 miles today before I ran out of time. That's 18 laps on the indoor track not real exciting but better than not walking.
       Worked out great when I was done Suzie heading back home, I began making supper. For me a pan fried catfish fillet with a light coating of roasted garlic and butter fish crisp. Fried in coconut oil and a bit of EVOO so very tasty.
excellent fish 
great for the fish 
Suzie's breaded chicken with broccoli and cheese
        Just taking it one day at a time to see how things go.
        But ya know tonight gonna be COLD!! This is getting ridiculous gonna feel like -42c tonight and ya now that is -43 f way too cold for us snow birds, actually too cold for any of us.
-42c is -43F
       At least we are toasty warm here, nice fire place, warm quilts and each other, we doing just fine.
       Just wanna thank ya'll for stopping by again and any warm pics of your southern places are more than welcome. Spring will soon be here right?

  2. Even though I would hate to live in your present environment - I still enjoy the pics of the snow. Where does the water go when the snow melts? Is it channeled away for reuse?

    1. The snow does look pretty its just the weather that brings it is not nice.
      When the snow melts it goes to the rivers, lake, in the ground for the water table and good for the farmers crops.

  3. That cold front you are having is hitting us down here in southern Florida. With the dampness it feels colder than it is.
    Keep Safe and Enjoy Staying Warm!

    It's about time.

  6. Grin and bare it George. Not much you can do about the weather; other than putting the nose of your coach heading toward to the US southwest. We have been living in fantastic low 90's temperatures.

  7. Is the snow ever going to stop accumulating up there. I thought you said a few weeks ago that spring was just around the corner. Well, we're still waiting for it to get to you.

    1. Only 32 days until spring, and at some point the snow will stop and maybe even warm up too!
