I was starting to feel like a wimp, but the old Mainers are beginning to complain about this winter. Some say "Oh, after all these years, a winter like we used to have!" but one of the local weatherwatchers noted that the winters they remember happened when they were only three feet tall.

However, there are two good things: One is that they do a good job of snow removal around here, even on the sidewalks -- big snowblower that goes down and clears 'em off, even on the stretches between stores and houses.

The other good thing is that the last storm missed us completely. Heh. Sorry, ronnie!

This may be the cause of your distress, ronnie: Mike's people's monster snowblowers are blowing Maine's snow into Canada.

"Montreal's largest school board — the CSDM — shut down all its schools and institutions Friday while crews cleared snow off the roofs, in what a board spokesman called an "exceptional measure."
"The Montreal French-language school board's decision came after students at a elementary school in Chelsea in western Quebec were sent home early Friday morning over concerns about heavy snow on the roof. A second Chelsea school closed later in the day.
"People across Quebec have been worried about rooftop snow after three women died Wednesday in the Laurentians town of Morin Heights when a warehouse roof collapsed.
"The CSDM said about 90,000 students in Montreal were sent to nearby churches and community centres as a precautionary measure given the thick snow accumulated on school roofs."

And it's snowing outside as I post ...

Not only that, but your e-mail doesn't seem to be working for me. My god, are you completely cut off from the 21st century? Working your way back through the 20th, 19th, 18th...? I'd send you an extra shovel, but it doesn't sound like it could get there until after you wouldn't need it anymore.

Hang tough.
