IT SNOWED!


Yup ... this pretty much shows the result of the recent storm ... took a few hours to dig out of this ... and was glad that Don our maintenance guy came in on his day off to help ... with the snowblower!

We got a solid two feet ... and Melanie snapped this for me to share.   Gives some perspective.

I personally enjoy shovelling ... it's a great workout in winter ... especially if you are off from work ... and have the time to deal with it ... but it did create issues for staff ... who got stuck in it ... and not able to make it in to work.

Oh well ... life goes on.

The day after ... was sooo different ... sunny & clear ... but once the dig out was done ... they came in droves to buy the essential things to cope ... and needless to say ...snow blower sales were brisk!

Yup ... a serious storm generates a lot of need ... and that translates into sales ... the bottom line is increased.....and welcome at the time of year when it would otherwise be slow.

Winter in Canada ... bring it on!
