If you’re lookin’ for the white stuff, and by that I mean snow… These are your best bets!

Every part of Canada gets snow. Even the warmest Canadian cities still get between forty and sixty centimetres of snow each year. To get snow each year is just part of being Canadian.

Nice image listing the Canada cities:

Saguenay also leads the country’s cities for how long snow lingers on the ground. But at St John’s, all that snow doesn’t stick around for long. The city doesn’t even make the top ten for most persistent snowpack.

Ten of Canada’s large cities receive an average of over two metres (6.6 feet) of snow every year. These cities with the most snow are scattered throughout Central Canada and the Maritime Provinces.

City, Inches, Centimeters

Residents brace themselves for an annual average of 316 centimetres of snow per year falling over 107 days. Large snowdrifts are common but Canadians are experts at coping with snow. – See more at: http://www.rhinocarhire.com/Top-Ten/Snowy-Cities.aspx#sthash.fJ7sw6BR.dpuf

Sherbrooke, Quebec 112.8 286.5
Average snowfall: 294cm
Days of snowfall: 79
A southern Quebec city with lots of wintertime precipitation, Sherbrooke, which is also a big college town, is the fourth biggest municipality in the province – and fourth on the top 10 snowiest cities in Canada).

Sudbury, Ontario 103.7 263.4
Average snowfall: 274cm

Days of snowfall: 60
All that snow in Montreal doesn’t slow down this hopping city – locals as well as visitors take advantage of all that white stuff by skating in the Old Port or on Beaver lake, playing shinny at a local outdoor rink, or just meandering down one of the many snow-covered downtown streets.

Moncton, New Brunswick 111.0 282.0
Trois-Rivières, Quebec 102.0 259.0
—–St. John, New Brunswick 94.3 239.6

Ottawa – Gatineau
Average snowfall: 236cm

Canada gets a lot of snow and the capital region is no exception. The average snowfalls rank them within the top 10 snowiest cities in Canada – it’s no wonder they’re popular for winter getaways, with the longest skating rink in the world and tons of seasonal festivities.

Halifax
Average snowfall: 231cm
Days of snowfall: 60

Days of snowfall: 66
The south-western city of London, Ontario is one snow-blanketed city for several months of the year, but it’s also becoming a booming tourist locale, with a budding arts scene as well as loads of festivals.

Drunk Snow Plow Driver Crashes with Airplane

Snow Plows at the Moscow airport

Drunk Snow Plow Driver Crashes with Airplane at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport

What happens when you get drunk and kill Putin’s friend with your snow plow?

Total CEO’s jet crashed on take-off in Moscow with Vladimir Martynenko, the unlucky guy who happened to drive his snowplow across the runway as Total CEO Christophe de Margerie’s executive jet was preparing to take off from the VIP terminal at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport last night. Three French crew members also died when the French-made Dassault Falcon 50 burst into flames after it hit the snow plow during takeoff from Moscow’s Vnukovo airport at 11:57 p.m. Monday local time. The Vnukovo airport is used by Russian government officials, including President Vladimir Putin, and visiting foreign leaders. Video from the scene showed the charred plane lying on a grassy field. Though it had snowed earlier in the day, it was unclear how much snow remained at the airport at the time of the crash. De Margerie, 63, was a regular fixture at international economic gatherings and one of the French business community’s most outspoken and recognizable figures. His trademark silver handlebar earned him the nickname “Big Mustache.” Laurence Parisot, a friend of de Margerie’s and the former head of France’s business lobby Medef, called him an “immense Frenchman” with “a love of life, laughter and the pleasures of the table.” Under his leadership, Paris-based Total claims it became the fifth-largest publicly traded integrated international oil and gas company in the world, with exploration and production operations in more than 50 countries.

The Real Downer – Killing Putin’s Friend

But the real downer would be that you had just killed one of the closest and most influential friends of an authoritarian President with well-documented anger management problems and roots in one of the most brutal organizations ever to have graced the planet. That last consideration, I’m thinking, would probably be the one that occupied your thoughts the most while you sat out 48 hours of detention before seeing the magistrate.

It’s difficult to imagine the next CEO of Total being as effective an advocate for Russia as de Margerie. He (or she) won’t have the same personal attachment to the big-money bets on gas producer Novatek (now under sanctions) and the vast Yamal LNG project. Nor will he have same political capital at home to spend on flouting public and political opinion (de Margerie always went the extra mile for Russia, even meeting ex-defense minister Sergei Naryshkin in Paris recently when the latter managed to slip past an E.U. visa ban on him).

What about the drunk snow plow driver?

The driver of the snowplow, Vladimir Martynenko, is at the center of the investigation following allegations, denied by his lawyer, that he was drunk. “At the current time, it has been established that the driver of the snowplow was in a state of alcoholic intoxication,” Tatyana Morozova, an official with the Investigative Committee, Russia’s main investigative agency. As well as questioning the driver of the snowplow, the committee’s spokesman Vladimir Markin said the role of air traffic controllers in the incident is being assessed.

Geo Metro Snow Plow Video

I just came over this video on the internet and have to say it is pretty awesome, who would have know a 95 Geo Metro would have worked so great for snow removal?

Geo Metro with Wooden Snow Plow

What this video to see what happens when you get 2 feet of snow and you are tired of shoveling.
Nothing like getting a 95 Geo Metro and ratchet strapping a board to the front to make a snow plow. A lot of GEO Metro fans says this video is a proof that a a Geo Metro is more reliable than any Ford that ever existed.

Dire Winter Forecast Going Viral

A satire website has many believing excessive snow, and maybe the sky, will be falling.

A winter forecast map that is going viral and suggests above-normal snowfall for most of the country – and “well above-normal” snow for the Mid-Atlantic and New England – comes from a satire website.

Dire Winter Forecast Going Viral

The story has been shared widely across social media, carrying the headline “Meteorologists Predict Record-Shattering Snowfall Coming Soon.” The accompanying map forecasts an unusually snowy winter for about two-thirds of the country, and a corridor of even heavier snow from Virginia to Maine.

 You might have seen the following map on your Facebook feed or Twitter stream lately.dire winter forecast going viral

In the story on EmpireNews.net, a Dr. Boris Scvediok, doctor of global weather sciences, explains that snowfall is expected to dramatically exceed normal seasonal totals.

The Snowfall is predicted to start by the end of September

“Because this year the snowfall is predicted to start by the end of September or the beginning of October, you can expect to multiply that number by up to five, ten, maybe even twenty times in some areas,” Scvedoik says in the article. “In the worst zones, you could see 50 times the amount of snow you’ve had in the past.”

Is the Dire Winter Forecast Too Dramatic?

If that winter forecast sounds a little too dramatic to be true, it’s because it is. As is often the case with stories from similar hoax news sites, the slightly plausible nature of the headline induced many users to post and repost the link without careful examination,” the myth-busting website Snopes.com wrote about the Empire News story. Anyway this is the Dire Winter Forecast Going Viral. If you are looking for more winter forecasts, we recommend you to check out the Farmers Almanac.

20 Weird Ways to Remove Snow

While white snowy landscape look pretty, and might help light up a dark winter. Well, sometimes it could be just enough of the good stuff, and you will have to figure out a way to remove it from your driveway, sidewalk, yard, etc. A lot of people don’t realize how much of a hassle the snow can be. Keeping sidewalks and driveways freWeird Ways To Remove Snowe of ice and snow can turn into a full time job for those who live in snowy areas. These overworked souls will try anything to make clearing all that snow a little bit easier, and some of the methods they utilize can be a bit unusual. So, I will not talk about snow plowing, snow shoveling, or snow blowing, but I will tell you about some of those more weird ways to remove snow. Which of these unorthodox methods is the best way, I am not sure, so you should try them out and see what works for you. Often a combination of these snow removal methods seems to be what does the trick. Don’t worry about which order I gave them, I just felt giving each method a number to keep track of them. Also to make them easier to find, I have divided them into the Melting Methods, the Snow Fun Methods, the Dog Methods, and the Hard Work Methods.

Weird Ways to Remove Snow- The Melting Methods

I will start out this list with five methods focusing on melting the snow and ice. There are many ways to melt snow, these are the kind of methods that make the snow disappear. How you choose to melt snow will be determined by where the snow is located, how much there is to melt and whether or not you are indoors or outdoors. Applying heat, natural or man made, or chemicals directly to the snow or ice can be effective. One downside or side effect with these ice melting methods is that they could leave behind some layers of ice.

20. Pour Hot Water

The nice thing with Hot water is that it instantly melts snow, and if you can heat enough water and pour it on your sidewalk or driveway, it might be the easiest way to clear those areas of snow. The drawback of this method is that moving around several gallons of hot water is not easy, but watching hours worth of shoveling melt away in seconds may just be worth it. One way to make this method a little easier would be to connect your garden hose to the hot water in your laundry room, and spray the snow with hot water. Another drawback of this method is that water will cool down on your sidewalk and driveway and freeze to ice. But, hey that’s no problem, we solve this issue in method 19.

19. Sprinkle Salt

If you got to wild with the water in method 20, this idea might help you out. You see adding salt to frozen snow lowers the temperature at which ice melts and is an effective way to melt snow and prevent ice from forming. In fact, if you’re expecting a freeze, sprinkling some salt on walkways and sidewalks will prevent ice and snow from accumulating. Salting is a great way to remove snow and keep your driveway and sidewalk clear of frozen obstacles. Just make sure not to use this method on your grass, as it will kill your grass in the spring.

18. UV car shades

One way to remove snow is to line the ground with UV car shades to attract rays and heat up the snow. It can be a tough job if you only have a few of these shields since you’ll have to move them around to get effective results, but utilizing the sun’s rays rather than your back muscles has its benefits.


17. Hair Dryer Method

This method is probably more common for women than men, and is often very time consuming. It involves plugging in a hair blower to an extension cord and use it melt the snow. This method might be more efficient for those of you that lives in an apartment building and only needs to remove the snow from your small deck or balcony.

16. Propane TorchClear Snow with Propane Torch

Weird Ways to Remove Snow – Methods Involving Hard Work

These Methods can be really hard work, or not to bad, depending on how much snow you will need to remove.

5. Sweep the Snow

When you don’t have a shovel handy (and even when you do), try removing snow with a broom. You can sweep it off the walkways and even scoop it up with a dust pan.

This can also be a lot harder and time consuming if you got a foot of snow in the latest snow fall.

Yes, there might be more weird ways to remove snow, and I don’t claim these are the best ones, the most clever ways to removed the snow, the only snow removal methods, or that I was the first person to come up with these ideas. But, these where the ones I felt like writing about. I also do not take any responsibility if you decide to try these snow removal methods out and it doesn’t work out for you, this would be completely up to yourself.

White Trash Snow Plow Videos

There are many funny white trash snow plow videos you can find on the internet. Here I have compiled a nice little online collection of videos for your entertainment. Make sure to watch all the videos as they are really funny.

The Rear Mount Hand Shovel Plow

Let’s start with the one I would like to refer to as the Rear Mount Hand Shovel Plow. It is a cheap alternative to regular rear snow plow systems, as the cost is to acquire a snow shovel, which you often can often get cheap a rummage sale during the summer, and you can have friend help you, buy having him or her drive his or hers vehicle. To use this plow system it is necessary to have two people, one to control the car or the SUV and one person to control the shovel. Working together you will both have a fun, and get the snow removed in no time.

The Wooden Hillbilly Towing Plow

Here is a nice wooden white trash invention. I like to refer to it as the Wooden Hillbilly Towing Plow. The way it works is that you attach it your rear receiver hitch with a rope and then tow it behind your vehicle. In this video it is towed behind an older model Chevy pickup truck, but I will assume it might work as good to be towed behind almost any car, SUV or truck. It basically made out of a pallet attached to an eight foot two by eight stud. It actually seems to work pretty good in the video. At least as long as you don’t have to back up a lot.

The V-Shaped Wooden Tire Plow

Here is another I chose to add to this White Trash Snow Plow Videos collection. This one is also created out wood, but it also take advantage of some rubber components and it is also taking advantage of the popular V-shape. According to the Inventor it works pretty darn well.

The Snow Plow Buggy – The last of Our White Trash Snow Plow Videos

A rather home made dune buggy looking snow plow. Another white trash creation, but seems to get job done at least.

The latest snowstorm dumped more than 2 feet of snow in a few spots in North East

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) A snowstorm with a ferocity more familiar in February than October socked the Northeast over the weekend, knocking out power to 2.3 million, snarling air and highway travel and dumping more than 2 feet of snow in a few spots as it slowly moved north out of New England. Officials warned it could be days before many see electricity restored.

The combination of heavy, wet snow, leaf-laden trees and frigid, gusting winds brought down limbs and power lines. At least three deaths were blamed on the weather, and states of emergency were declared in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and parts of New York.

Parts of New York saw a mix of snow, rain and slush that made for sheer misery at the Occupy Wall Street encampment in New York City, where drenched protesters hunkered down in tents and under tarps as the plaza filled with rainwater and melted snow.

I bet there is a lot of snow plowing going on in North Eastern stats right now.
