Two and a half feet here in Barrie. I have about a foot of ice in front of my garage door. Very frustrating. On the bright side, above freezing here and unlike the East coast we have not just had half a meter of snow...... I will be buidling again SOON... I hope.

Not much happening with this Canadian Group lately! 

I guess everyone is still buried in the snow.

Hi All, Not CBG related, but definitely Canadiana.  My chum drove 9 hours to put this up in his daughter's front yard for Christmas in thunder Bay.  Enjoy.
