ENOUGH already! Mother Nature can we have some better weather?

(we got lucky yesterday and last night though...just light flurries here...and just South of us they're dealing with ICE and idiots out trying to prove they know how to drive on it)
Weather please hit *again* with another Canadian deep freeze. How would you like to be a Canadian in the deep freeze. And camping season doesn't start here till the middle of May.

I wouldn't. Not atall! These old bones aren't built for this kinda cold.

And to make it worse, I met and married DH while living in FL, then dragged him back here. Aside from the fact that I question my sanity re that move, DH is *not* a happy camper in these temps, being accustomed to the weather Old Coot is currently rubbin' our noses in.

OK, so your camping season doesn't start til mid MAY? I bet those roads are kinda like a current RV owners' version of the gold rush days!

Hitch 'em up and MOOOOOVE 'em out!

Then again, how are your summers for heat? Ours can be quite nice and the days are long. The wife doesn't like it too hot and humid, then again she doesn't like the cold either. Kind off like Goldilocks. LOL Would love to be down south somewhere, however health issues prevent that this year.

We've had roller caster weather here the last couple weeks in SKratchybum. It will be -30c with a -38c WC one day then up to -5c. It was +2c here yesterday and dropping to -30c tomorrow.

Have the TT stored in the driveway and look at it everyday just waiting for the May long!!!

Awesome! And a huge to all of you!

not even just here, but even locally.....i have had about 4 friends call and pick my brain about getting new trailers.. a lot of em have seen our pics and have realized as i have that it can be a fun way for the family to get out and spend time AWAY from here!!

of those 4, i have helped 2 already with towing questions and they went out and bought trailers already....the other 2 im sure will before summer......and ALL of these individuals are first time owners...i think its great!..a HORRIBLE investmet financially, but there is NO PRICE for the memories made!! LOL
