A chain is 66ft, so 0.0252 chains.
A rod is 5.5 yards, so 0.1 rods.
A hand is 4 inches, so 5 hands.

4 hours of snow shovelling yesterday and my arms are feeling today. I quit snow shovelling. Besides even if we get more snow there is nowhere to put it so I m Igbo as well leave it alone.

Pretty nice summer this year, after a couple of years of really crappy weather.

That said, it could be that my standards are lower after two really crappy years of weather.

i thought for sure, you'd be complaining about the most recent tornadoes being precariously close to you.

I was at the cottage when that tornado touched down. I looked it up after, we were less than 40 kilometres away. It was a pretty crazy storm where we were, something like 5 lightning strikes a second for...2 hours maybe?

We got some ugly clouds, rain and wind, but no tornadoes. They were north of Hwy 9 I believe. I think are weather warnings were for severe thunder storms, but not Tornado warnings. The really bad one was as close to London as it is to Mississauga.

Post #223 by Thomas Malthus » Sun Sep 27, 2015 9:17 pm

Starting to prepare for the winter this year, last winter was fucking miserable in O-town.

I want to get a jacket that will do as good a job as possible at keeping the cold at bay when it's -20 and below out. I'm looking to spend less than $300 if possible and had been checking out some of the North Face's thermoball stuff and Mountain Hard Wear's Q shield down stuff. I don't mind that quasi-Michelin Man look but I worry that they won't be able to handle the cold. I'm not going hiking or camping, just walking to/from and waiting on public transit.

Thoughts from you more experienced lot?

Best jacket I have for the cold is a surplus military parka I bought for 90 dollars. My wife says I look homeless in it and won't let me wear it often. It's technically rated for up to -60...

To be honest the best money spent on winter gear would be a good pair of boots. I bought some giant Sorel's a few years back and they make me look like mega man, but God damned they are comfy.

I always worry that those tire man looking coats wouldn't do well against a wind. One of those under that goretex shell MP was taking about should do the trick in pretty much any weather, though the shell would be expensive.

I have a nice pair of Allen Edmonds winter boots, they are ridiculously warm and water proof most everywhere. Really happy with them, but I'll be damned if I can find a picture of them.

I got some thermal socks and want to get some new long johns too. Other than that stuff it's the coat I really need, I can't do the winter in just a peacoat again.

Yeah, that's really the main concern. The wind whipping along the canal is pretty nasty and Ottawa seems windy in general, or at least in my time here. There are some of those tri-climate coat "systems" or some shit that have a shell and a down inner, but with those I worry about the down getting wet from my sweat if I overheat (though, I'm not shovelling driveways or running in them so I dunno how that'd happen).

That's why you need the GoreTex. It lets you breathe so you don't get all sweaty.

+1.

Sure they're expensive, but really it's a four season jacket, you just layer underneath to match the season.

My Northface shell is still kicking a decade later, the only wear is the velcro on the wrist cuffs is completely worn out. Great jacket.
