I must say that this year is my most unprepared year for winter! At least it does not get as bad here as out west by you guys...

Yes…..it always catches me by surprise. There are a lot of preparation to be done. Quad and side x side needs “winter oil”. Lawnmower and bikes need their batteries taken out and connected to trickle chargers. Camper plumbing needs to be flushed with antifreeze. Pellet stove chimney needs to be cleaned. Air exchange filters and fan needs to be cleaned and serviced. Bakkie and SUV need their windshield washing fluid drained and replace with -40C washer fluid. Snow blower needs a service. Quad snow plow needs a service (broken bolts etc.) Gutters need to be cleaned out of all the leaves before the first snow . Snow fence have to be out up before the ground freeze (have to knock in the fence posts). Furnace needs a service and clean.
And then you have to prepare mentally for months of cold and no sunshine.

Bliksem, dis rof. Sterkte!

It is. It charges our mental batteries before winter. But it’s like those electric Harley Davidson bikes in The Long Way Up. It runs out before it reaches its destination  :biggrin:

I 'd never heard of snow fences before.  I see they are used to create snow drifts where you would prefer to have them to manage safety on roads etc.

What is in -40C washer liquid.?
At that temperaturs, even mercury is frozen solid !  :eek7:

Snow fence is like a plastic “net”. It causes a pressure differential behind the fence. The blowing snow slows down enough for the snowflakes to drop, and it piles up at the back side of the fence. There is quite a bit of science behind it. The hight of the fence will determine how far behind the fence the drift will form. “They” say the ratio is 1/35. If your fence is 4 feet high, the drift will form 175 behind the fence. And the fence needs to be about 6 inches off the ground. 
We get really strong north winds in January that drifts on to my driveway. So the fence prevents that from happening.

The washer fluid contains methanol.

I know snow fences but never knew the science behind it, thanks for the explanation.
I also need to change my trucks washer fluids now since we already see frost in KS

I hope it’s still there when you go. BC is getting destroyed by rain. So far the damage is sitting at $7 billion…..
