    the snow is so deep in the KINGDOM that i had to get the d6 9u known as THE HOOD out to push back the snow banks. pushed a lot of snow in about 2 hours with the 12 foot blade.

    the cats are very warm when you have all the canvas on, today i only put the front one because i was only doing a little bit of work.

    here is THE HOOD working for a living.

    well we had to angle the blade and windrow the snow over, lots of snow from the friday snow storm. THE HOOD had no problems with this amount of snow, sounded good too, LOL

    I always remembered that -40F and -40C are just about the same. So at -37C we are close to an easy conversion. :)

    For greater accuracy use formula below:
    To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit:

    ?F =(9/5)?C+32


    To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius:

    ?C=(5/9) x (?F-32)

    ?C = temperature in degrees Celsius
    ?F = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit

    I have lived half my life each way Metric / English. I have all sorts of shortcuts to convert various things in my head. For example, to convert 160 KPH to miles, just drop the ZERO and multiply by 6. So 16 times 6 = 96MPH. Close enough.

    But Celsius is a pain. I just remember a couple of conversions in my head (like -40F = -40C) and guess the rest from there. :)

    yes i was young when canada turned the metric system and it is a pain. we buy the tape measurer in inches, weight the fish in pounds, sell scrap buy the ton and only thing is drive the car by metric. in fact southern belle's FANCY suburban is from texas and i like driving at 70 miles per hour. no problems there, LOL
