If the big empty hole in my woodshed is any kind of indicator....I've burned thru about 3 cords and only have about a cord left. Thankfully, I know a guy.

Cozy? Must be a dry cold.

A buddy and I drove from Toronto to the west coast one January and it was cold like that all the way.  We were in an old British Wolseley which was not very well equipped for the cold with one little heater.  We could see our breath the entire way.  The car finally gave up in Golden and we had to wait for parts to carry on so I got a job working for the shop/auto-wrecker that fixed the car and my buddy delivered pizzas.

It's only cozy because my house has a brilliant baseboard radiator system that allows me to control heating zones and have toasty rooms for living and cooler rooms for sleeping. I just have to use a spin bike and watch cycling GoPro videos instead of a real bike ride.

We got 30+ cm of snow overnight.  Crazy.

They wait until the storm's over before the ploughs come out? Weird.

They wait until the storm is over and it has rained and is mostly gone before the plows come out. 

They also donít bother picking up garbage or recycling if the road is the least bit snowy or icy.  No garbage pickup here for 3 weeks or so now.  They canceled it again today.

Itís notoriously bad in my municipality. I live in a cul de sac too which never gets ploughed and is on top of a slippery hill so Iím often homebound until snow melts.

Never felt a thing.

Apparently, thereís a risk of strange and dangerous currents, not so much a tsunami.  Surfers should stay out of the water.

I maintain a pretty healthy sense of risk on the ocean even at the best of times and more so as the years go by and my experience grows. I can definitely see where you'd want to be extra cautious around somewhere like the outside of the Broken Group for the next few days.

Ever picked goose-barnacles or seen where commercial pickers go? I worked as a coordinator for an experimental fishery for goose-barnacles and often had to land a boat or someone onto the exposed bare rocks they're harvested from. If the La Perouse weather buoy said 2m seas that was our no-go limit but of course the buoy is 15 miles offshore so...no need to take a grain of salt with you.

Thereís a few islands that are big enough to land on the lee-side and hike over top to get a feed of barnacles from the surf side. We did that in the Deer Group a few times.

But jumping onto surf-swept rocks Ö. Doesnít seem safe.
