Unfortunately the salt doesn’t work melting ice & snow until the temperature gets up to about -10C.
It also rots the rocker panels of vehicles!

We had a moderate night with -10C temperature & 10cm snow. Today cardio workout is 1/2 shoveling snow. My Apple Watch doesn’t an exercise called shoveling snow, so it’s just “other” lol

Another cold weekend in Canada with temps dipping down to -23 C overnight. Then back up to -8 C today & rain/wet snow mix forecast for Wednesday-Thursday.
Tomorrow is ground hog day. However I don’t have any faith in a rodent’s ability to forecast the next 6 weeks weather LOL!
While the thermometer does it’s roller coaster ride, I’m still happy to walk my Treadclimber.

We got about 10-12 cm of snow last night. Temperature about -12C. More snow shoveling! Took longer as I cleared my next door neighbor’s walk also. He recovering from bypass surgery last week

Great job staying active despite the weather! Spring must came along one of these years...
According to Wireton Willey, (Ontario Ground Hog) we will have an early spring. However I have yet to see a rodent with any reliable skills in forecasting the weather!

The cold weather has retreated to the north, with a warmer southern wind pushing in from the USA. Temps are warm +2-3C hi, with low -6 to -8 C overnight for the rest of this week. My wife Sharon & I were out for a nice casual 3km walk with Bella this afternoon.

Another moderate (for us) day on Sunday-10c , we had a 30 minute walk with Bella followed with 20 minutes in our new hot tub @+40C.
Today it’s-21, with wind chill at -30. Workout will be in our basement.

A 40°C hot tub sounds like torture to me but I hope you enjoy!
Not when the air temp is -10C, 40 is really comfortable for about 1/2 hour or so!
Bella is getting used to the hot tub, but she keeps dropping her rubber tire in it for me to throw!
