Went to the legion with the scouts this morning to help clear tables at their monthly buffet breakfast. They served 290 people in 3 hours. That's a lot of plates to clear and wash.

Been sitting at home immobile the rest of the day with my back burning and legs pretty much useless.

Canadian eh!!!

The end.
Cathy and the kids went to Panda Express tonite. I stayed home and did some smoked Brisket in Daddy Ray's BBQ sauce with waffle fries.

Apparently the same problem here with Chinese Cuisine. By the time they got home they were again hungry and I had to share.

We should have gone to Ninja for thai and sushi.
For it being over $8 a head, all I had was sesame green beans, fried shrimp, crab rangoon and rice.
1 trip.
Half the stuff looked like it had been sitting all day.
Blahh.

And that's the reason my wife hates all Far Eastern buffets. That and the fact that 2/3 of the dishes are chicken and she doesn't eat chicken.

Went to the border yesterday to pick up some truck accessories yesterday. Side window vents and a chrome hood deflector. Got them home and quickly decided they were going back. Getting a 2" suspension leveling kit installed on the truck this morning. It'll raise the front 2". Ford in all their wisdom decided that an f150 shouldn't have much more clearance on their front end than a Honda civic. That is totally impractical when you live in the north with snow banks and ice chunks 2 ft high. That plastic valance underneath the front wouldn't survive. It also helps with ice buildup in the wheel wells.

Canadian eh!!!

Had a quiet night at work.
The snow started just as I was leaving this morning.
On the agenda today, not a lot.
The plows haven't been out much as it's not going to stop anytime soon.

I believe 3pm?
Meanwhile, I'm chillin with my pancake brunch.
Thick and fluffy!

Just finished plowing out the driveways from last nights snow.

Sat down with some hot tea, looked out the window and noticed it started snowing again.

Storm came through last light about midnight. It was wild and wooly for about an hour. Got up this morning and went to work the monthly Rotary recycling in Walmart's carpark. It was really busy being it was the first one since Christmas. It was bitterly cold and the wind was howling straight out of the north. I was glad when they decided to call it a day. I came home and thawed out. I think that's it for today. I'm going to snuggle up with a blanket and let the world go its own way.

Hunkering down for a winter cold snap. Chopped about twenty logs for the two fireplaces.

We should get 4.0" of the white stuff but then some ice and cold. If the power goes out we have those two heat sources and a small generator for fans and lights.

I am assuming those are your legs in the photo Lollie...; NICE!
