    • I assure you, we in Canada are not winter pussies. I worked oil rig, 50 below.
      However, no thanks, done it, as of Dec 23, 2020, I will be 62. Retired. Bored.

    • Heh, speak for yourself, in Buffalo we have snow fall that collapses trees like umbrellas.

      But then again, all the C02 pumped out of the third world has drastically changed the weather in the N. E.

  2. you gotta have a real sense of the funnies to live with that much snow. But seriously I’d get a set of snowshoes. I lived up in Northern Canada for 3 years, that video is hilarious and brings back some memories.
