Out of Hibernation

Spring is the time of year that bears start moving around after a winter of hibernation.  We tend to do the same thing.  During the winter our office is in our home.  We can answer the phone, email and keep things afloat in our underwear at 3 am if we choose.  (no visuals please)

I just returned from Calgary Alberta – home of the world’s largest rodeo.  We did a sport show there last week.  It is amazing, but even tho’ we live in Ontario, it takes less time to drive to Calgary than  it does to Toronto.

In our part of the country we expect snow.  And cold.  Since yesterday afternoon it has been raining off and on.  This in it self is not much of a problem.  However, adding lots of water to snow can be a big problem for roofs. 

This morning, with an expectation of another day of rain, we decided our hangar ...read more.

We left Chicago just ahead of a forecast blizzard on Monday and drove all the way through to Ignace. 770 miles in 13 hours and 8 minutes. Roads were good.

Winter in the Great White North

Posted by on Monday, December 15, 2008 at 10:46 am

This past weekend we had our first winter storm. Blowing snow, temps around -30C with winds around 50 mph gave us a good reason to stay indoors. East of us highways and schools are closed. Here in Ignace were we are a little heartier. Life goes on – just a little cool.

Today is clean up day. The ...read more.
