Everyone out in this part of the country has three pieces of equipment that are considered necessities.+9 and raining here in Abby, supposed to clear up here in early May 2016.
I have a blade for my quad and always put in on after hunting season is over.... haven't used it for three winters.
Also have a beautiful Craftsman 32" snow blower, cannot even remember when it was used last, maybe 6 winters ago..
I hope your not getting too comfortable on that other Coast as we need you here...Yesterday/last night was raining catz n dogz with sideways winds reaching gusts of 70 kmh at times. "They" closed the Confederation Bridge to all "high-sided" vehicular traffic. Apparently this is a common occurrence in this part of the country.
