Thanks for the great information and thread OP, not all of your information sank in all the way here but I get the gist of your post.
I did see you on the other thread by " Don't tread on me", and your thinking to start a thread on this very topic and I thank you for your efforts
I am not sure how cold it gets there in Scotland but here in Canada its can get a bit chilly.
I believe for this year, anyways no matter what befalls us here now we have escaped almost 50% of the bad winter weather we are used to.
Last year it was snow and snow and cold and cold and wind and wind from the 1'st of November till into April, so I figure we already have happily
dodged almost 2.5 months of misery.
I started reading this thread this morning and it did prompt me to go out to the garage and gas up the snowblower and give it a run.
Here in Ontario once we hit the March 1'st date the sun is much higher and what snow we get can and usually does melt fairly fast (compared to
January and February) so I think we are half out of the woods here.
I will add this just for reference, I am 52 years old born and lived here all my life and this so called winter is a new one for me.
Thanks again for the heads up and the very good information.
