Last time it snows here and stuck to anything I was 5...  so it's been a while..

Well, you have as much snow as WI does right now.

 

Been cold, but no snow. For us. Couple inches. 

 

Glad I didn't buy a snowmobile for the 10th year in a row.

Mender and I wonder how they do it in Saskatchewan too... bunny hugs, Kaiser, and vi-co.

Sweet baby Jesus it's been cold.

 

Normal up nort :D

 

Was gonna biring up Eskimo brothers, but thought better.

 

Edit I need a map for you Canucks. Alberta for both?

 

You know it's cold when you have a 6000 foot limit on trains. Too many contracted seals to ever get 85 pounds at the rear. And the ability to stop is always good.

Not getting the Kaiser reference.

 

Let alone the other.

 

But right now WI feels like Canada. Carhardt Extreme was a good buy a couple months ago.

Yes; I'm about an hour north of Ron. We can both see the Rockies. :)

 

We're up in the twenties F now, practically T-shirt weather. I don't really count it as a cold winter unless we get at least a two week stretch of -20 F or worse daytime temps. Three weeks of that starts to get inconvenient.

Took me a minute to realize you were talking length and not altitude!

 

I hear that true cold is when oil rigs shut down because the integrity of the derrick is compromised.  Somewhere around minus 40F I've been told.  I just hope to Jesus and his tuxedo t-shirt I never see that day.  They just tend to freeze up around here long before it gets that cold.

Think of all the gaskets in 100+ cars.  They seep everywhere. Make air by reducing the train.

 

Btw Have had my air get legal at the back of train after the sun came up. Black cars are warmer with sunlight.

how do we pull a motor in Saskatchewan during the Winter?

Shovels, Toques, Gloves, Bunny hugs, VI-CO.....

Hey, when you want to go to the Road America race in April, you do what you have to :)

 

winter engine

I want to do RA in the snow.

 

Granted, our Canuck friends might have an advatage.... they think.

 

Ron's Stang will be tough. That mid engine thing will be in the fence. :D

So, you can see the Rockies (been there. 100 miles out you can see them) and you're warmer than WI.

 

I'm moving to Florida to commiserate with @pintodave. Winter only 

 

Too warm down there summertime.

Actually it would make a great ice racer, lots of traction. :)

 

I called it snowmobiling on my Arctic Cat but I've always been a little different.

Have said before; 1000 Tcat motor in a Metro.

 

The old man said that was silly. I laughed. "How hard does that sled run? Hook it up."

 

This was in '99.

 

The Metrowgatever in the series. Zero chance. Dunno how Champ values snowmobile engines.

 

Guessing a 180hp Metro might promote some angst however.

 

Edit not building it. But I want to.

Somebody In Lemons already did one in a Miata.  And kept the CVT.  And it actually worked.
