Talk about cold temps...……….3 guys at work have diesel's, all 7.3 powerstroke's, as I mentioned in an earlier post to haul around equipment. The temps got low enough here in Buffalo that even with the diesel additive, the fuel gelled enough to kill the internal fuel tank sending units ?

All 3 of us have to replace them now, talk about a major catalyst for catastrophe. Spoke with 2 diesel mechanics this AM, both said the same thing, they've each received calls from others on this very problem with the 7.3's.

Gentlemen......

It looks like this is the only time this season that we can break out our favorite chant (albeit for a different reason):

BLOW LEAFS BLOW

This sucks........ or blows........ depending on your perspective. So far, one 40' "property boundary" pine tree blown over. But I still have power, and nothing has come through the roof yet. There's some pretty cool video of the ice being pushed to the E end of Lake Erie/Upper Niagara River, and being piled up on shore....... wild.

Was hoping to see it on the way back from work but the Skyway was closed.  Maybe I'll be able to get a peak on the way in tomorrow.

Pretty wild last 24 hours...roofs blown off, roofs caving in...ice boom broke...anything not tied down getting blown around...all the schools closed

Peak Wind Gust at Niagara Falls and Dunkirk was 74 mph, Buffalo Airport 69 mph with sustained winds over 55 mph for several hours...

About 65K people lost power...luckily I wasn't one of them...

and to top it off, Lake Effect Snow coming all the way from lake Huron over 400 miles away...we can't catch a break lol...

-42C or -43.6F with the wind here tonight and everyone around here is getting pretty sick of the winter. I am getting into a cab for the airport at 4:45 tomorrow morning and heading to Los Cabos for 13 days of drinking, fishing, birding, snorkeling and eating...preferably in that order. Supposed to be around 81F for the whole time we are there. Fishing isn't supposed to be the greatest at this time of year but it's supposed to be picking up the last two weeks. I'll be watching the Jets from a rooftop bar tomorrow evening!!!

Supposed to be -8C or 17.6F when we get back but they have trouble predicting 3 days in advance let alone 14 days.

Have a good time and thanks for sending the deep freeze as far east as you could.  We are not quite to Winterpeg level coldness, but much colder than we are used to here in NS.
