50+79 Glad I am not in London Ontario at the moment – Oh Snow!

Well here in Oshawa we have only had the one snow storm a couple of days a go accounting for at the most about 3 inches (7.5 cm) of the white stuff and it was no problem to move off our roads, drive and walkways.

I have a friend Jay aka @Jake_Alberts on twitter that runs Jake Alberts a little company in London Ontario that makes a great Sauce/Glaze that is fantastic on both meat and ice cream (you heard me, it is true!)

He sent out a tweet today saying that they had 30 inches of snow in 24 hours and more since, as a matter of fact they are reporting that London had 106 cm  (40 inches) dumped on them from this system  My goodness that is almost 4 feet of snow!

Just to compare London only had 100 cm of snow all of last year!

For those wondering London is about 3 or 4 hours to the west of us here in Oshawa, and just an hour or so east of Detroit.

This is a picture Jay posted today taken AFTER he had already cleaned the car off before.

It will be interesting to see how much snow we get her in Oshawa this year, regardless I hope most of it falls in late January when i will be soaking up the sun in Florida.


50+77 Snowin’, Blowin’ and BBQin’??? Yup!

Today we had our first major snowfall of the season that managed to cause some havoc on the roads and force yours truly to unlock the shed to pull out my snow-blower (yes Cyndi I found my garage keys, they were tucked in the back seat of the VW)

But since it was still snowing I needed to make some dinner for my two boys and their sons. So lets see what would go good on a day like today?……. I know Steak on the BBQ!

Call me nuts but since I am a full member of the Winter Grillers Group I had to show them that I was worthy of their acceptance.

The steaks were fantastic and I will talk about that more in my Oshawa Ogre’s Views, News & BBQ’s blog maybe later tonight or tomorrow, just check to see if it is there.

After dinner I drove the boys home and I will tell you the roads were quite slippery, I may need to take my all-seasons off and get some snow tires or my Jetta.

Did not take too long to clear the driveway and my walk-ways as the snow was very light and fluffy.
