Looks like you have a nice coat of the protection on there - good work!

Nice coat on the roof, sure. But what about the sides? You need to build the side protection all the way up to the roof.

Says the guy living in Vancouver.

I will let you know when I figure out a way to get the snow to stick to the sides of the trailer.

You just need a lot more snow. I hear that more is on the way this week so it could happen.

UV

Got some more last night and today, still snowing. Glad I have the FJ with ice tires and 4wd the roads are crazy in the city. Or maybe it's the drivers?

Hey, we are about half way there already in Smithers. A record accumulation at town elevation, at least since records started in 1955 as I recall - over a meter on the ground, and we are a long way from done yet. Could be an entertaining melt come spring.

Great morning laugh from the OP - thanks for perking up the morning coffee.

It's really good to hear you're getting some decent snow Hugh. Your area has been pretty parched now for a long time.
