Re: Snowmageddon in Newfoundland Canada

Sounds normal for Canada, they're prepared for it too with snowblowers, shovels and municipal snowploughs, unlike over here where half a millimertre and people are abandoning cars due to no traction because their summer slicks don't work in winter... 🤣

I have alloys with summer tyres and steel rims with Nokian winters - the winters are on from October to March,  and have been for over 5 years now - utterly amazing what difference proper winter tyre make ( not studded either, just rubber ) - Couple of years ago was out ( Front wheel Drive car ) and only saw tractors and Land Rover Defenders - Oh and saw a few 4x4 muppets with summer tyres sitting still with the wheels spinning ( all 4 wheels ),  and winter is when normal cars get their own back on BMW's with their rear wheel drive and wide tyres - which make them useless on anything resembling snow or ice,  even if only a thin layer of snow.   And remember its not just getting going in snow,  it is stopping as well,  where the extra weight of 4x4 makes stopping more difficult.

I'm at an age now when the roads are bad I don't have to get the car out.

Had an email earlier from my cousin in Nova Scotia telling me her better half (better half of 70) had to shovel two feet of snow away from the back door so their dog could go out for a pee! 🐕

Re: Snowmageddon in Newfoundland Canada

I know a few people over in Canada, they're usually shovelling or blowing inches to feet of snow, frankly, if they weren't getting any snow, THEN I'd be worried!!! 🤣

Oh I totally agree and I only mentioned it because it struck me as funny, the idea of some little dog busting for a pee while waiting for the snow to be cleared. Hopefully it was not a Westie otherwise it would be gone never to be seen again!

Forecast rain and sleet there now with - 4c overnight.

Brrr.

Re: Snowmageddon in Newfoundland Canada

A fella I know in North Bay, Ontario has to shovel out a square patch he calls a "Puppy poop pad" for his Pom when the snow falls, otherwise said dog just goes "Nah, I'll just use the warm floor instead!", that and said dog could sink in the snow and not be seen again 'til spring... 😂

Vancouver looks ok after a sprinkling a few days ago.

Surely just holding the dog while it does its business will melt the snow anyway😉

Re: Snowmageddon in Newfoundland Canada

Vancouver Island/Vancouver British Columbia ( where Meghan is staying )  is on the west coast and Labrador is on the east coast 4173 Km away

So she has nothing to worry about.

Re: Snowmageddon in Newfoundland Canada

Vancouver is further away from London for poor Meghan.  Longer flight = more carbon on her and Harrys footprint.....
