...really are sooo much fun. Yesterday was a record breaker here and my neighbour Victor (middle pic) decided to build a wall across the road and set up a toll booth. The road is normally 2 full lanes wide but it seems to be getting narrower.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v705/jcumming/Project1.png" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>
We're not expecting any more snow until later this afternoon. Yahoooo.<br><br>
(I wonder where we will put it!!!)

Holly carp!<br><br>
We got ice. Power's been out since last night and the etimate is restoration at 5 pm today, although I don't believe it.<br><br>
Am I glad we have a generator and a land line with DSL.

Yikes! I can't even imagine it! It's supposed to get to 66 degrees here today.<br>
Although there were snow flurries on Monday around these parts.

Two years ago on this date it was over 60F.<br>
March in Ontario is always exciting...except for those who commit suicide because they are sure spring is here and then this happens. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Well, I'm the suicidal one, although I have no illusions that spring comes to the Adirondacks util mid-April.<br><br>
I'm really ready for this to be over. We're waiting for a propane delivery for the generator.

JC, we set out on the pathway downtown, we being four running clinic folks and I... beautiful sunny day with the temps at -3c (26f) and ended 10 miles later in +10c (50f) glory with nary a hint of ice or snow.<br><br>
I miss snow, but not THAT much.

I talked to a friend that lives in Toronto last night and she said her husband got lost trying to clear out the drive way. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

John Thank God you all had the sense to keep the snow to yourselves this time( well, except for the little dollop in the middle of the US! <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">) We had rain and the brooks are full .. and yes there is still snow left ( about a foot in most places ) but I can actually see the picnic table in the back yard! It has been covered since December this year.<br>
Any bets when it all melts away ( I have one on a snow pile at school for Cinco de Mayo! )

The clinics out of my store were doing 30K today...hee hee...good luck. One of the many reasons I won't do another clinic beyond Learn to Run.<br><br>
I saw two runners out this morning...where it was plowed...still seemed to be two steps forward, one slip back. No thanks.

It rained and rained yesterday, but we still have a good 3' of snow out there. Covered with crusty ice.

That's kind of a pathetic temperature isn't it??<br><br>
Too cold to be on the beach, too hot to ski.<br><br>
...not too bad for running, but well over the perfect distance runner's temp of 48.
