    Default Winter has struck again

    For the second time this week the main trans Canada highway has been shut down due to weather conditions ie snow. This time it covers a stretch of 160km/100miles. Great way to start winter.

    Should have added that there are no real ways to detour around that area as it really is the only east-west road across Canada at that point.

    You know, the US should move Thanksgiving to the same time we have it to try and avoid an estimated 50-55 million people travelling in the bad weather this time of year brings. Besides it is too close to Christmas.

    That's how I feel about boat shows, Bob. Are largest boat show in Ohio, is held in the month of January, less than 5 miles from the shore's of lake Erie. Nothing fun about hauling boats up to 40 feet in length on ice and snow covered roads, and trying to remove all the road salt from them for the show. This year were not going.. Thank god.! Its the most stressful and nerve wracking work of the year, for me, and hundreds of other dealers. But the NMMA doesn't care. They think its the best time of year to have one

    I'm sure with some machine learning and cameras in day cares, pre-schools or kindergarten... I swear the toddlers seem to have an extra sense for snow and christmas. They can sniff Xmas 6 month apart
    Beautiful is important, but when all is said and done, you will always be faithful to a good shaver while a bad one may detter you from ever trying again. Judge with your skin, not your eyes.
