Makes you feel lucky living in soggy old GB and I moan if the water butt gets frozen.
All that moisture-laden Atlantic air and left-over hurricanes means no two days the same.
Trips to Calgary (-20) and Moscow (-11) remind me what real continental winters are like

We get our weather from Alaska as it makes its way to New England ;)

No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

Snow blower has both standard and metric nuts.
Lucky I got one of these from eBay.

My recollection from brief visits to Montreal is wonderfully bright winter sunshine coupled with tooth-numbing cold.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Surely you mean "standard and Imperial"?

Everything runs on smoke, let the smoke out, it stops running....

we seem to have some white flaky stuff falling from the sky... though i haven't been outside yet. i just see it on my security cameras.

at work, we have to take down pipe staging. between the gusty 40Mph wind, and the snow and ice, it should prove to be... exciting.  :o  :o  :o

Won't work for me, that's the right handed model.
(PS. My wife's most prized kitchen utensil was a left handed vegi cutting knife.)

I think if you look carefully you will see that one end is right-handed and the other end is left-handed.

But thank you for drawing my attention to that, I was about to buy one.

Bugger, I was hopping you would buy one and let us know if it rounded off the corners of a nut like they are designed to do. :o :o

Whitworth is a thread form like Unified or Acme. But IIRC Unified only uses Imperial measure, inches.

Did you know that Schwinn has their own thread form? Nobody else's parts fit, have to buy Schwinn.

I fail to see handedness in crescent wrenches! The adjustment nut is open on both sides.

What I do see is one head faces more up from the handle, the other more down. Perhaps the bolt that one end can't get on and turn, the other can. The wrench can be flipped or rotated too, might be just the thing in close spaces.

:smiley-cry:   -11°C



2 months from now that may seem balmy. Do you get mid-winter rains that turn everything into ice? It happens Down East. Further south there's complete thaw if there was any freeze to sneeze at. Where used to get feet of snow now gets inches.

I worked with a guy who grew up on the north edge of Ontario. He had a VW bug in HS that had to sit outside the garage. In winter morning for a few minutes the tires bumped until the flat spots unfroze.

You know you really want to be up in Yellowknife, right?

How could I? It didn't make sense. Does this mean you won't be getting one?
