    I'm a native Coloradan and I can barely tolerate our relatively mild winters; there is no way in Hell I could live in Canada with your brutal to me winters.

    Neat picture.

    How to survive a CDN winter:

    I think it is all about what you are use to. I know at the start of winter I freez at 45*F. But by the end of winter when we get that first 36*f day and the sun is out I'll be out in a tee-shirt.

    That's a pumpkin. We can only sweep after midnight, cause before that it's a carriage......

    It's not mine.... it comes from the South side of the highway - but I have to be honest, it's doing one hell of a job!!!...and it's saved me from buying a 2720, for now.

    ps - I drove it last night.... Note the look on my face..... "What is this!!?? A tractor for ants??!!!" I bellowed!!!!
