  5. SAINT-JEAN, NL - The summer may have officially arrived five days ago on the calendars, but John Jack Lushman still rose Tuesday morning with four or five centimeters of snow at his cottage in Burgeo, on the south coast of the island of Newfoundland. Environment Canada argues that this very late rush sets a new Gander record for June 26: about two inches of snow fell by mid-morning on Tuesday. In meteorological memory, we had never seen that. But Justin Boudreau recalls that "snow in June" is not a very rare phenomenon in Newfoundland and Labrador. On June 20, 1996, he fell 3.2 centimeters of snow on Gander, closer to the Atlantic coast, recalls the meteorologist. Not to mention 0.8 centimeters of snow on June 29, 1952, and 0.2 centimeters on June 30, 1995. Dust, but all the same: just before July 1! The province's transportation ministry on Tuesday urged motorists to drive cautiously by posting a photo of a road in Burgeo covered with a thin layer of snow on social media. The meteorologist Boudreau said the mercury was hovering around freezing point in Gander on Tuesday morning, and should not exceed 3 degrees Celsius during the day - which would set a new record for a June 26th. The normal for this date is about 19 degrees, but we have already experienced spikes at 32 degrees. This summer snow obviously should not drag on the ground: Environment Canada forecasted rain for the east and center of the island on Tuesday - with rainfall of 40 to 70 millimeters by the end of the evening.

    Ya Mon, wha gowan? Respect. Limin’ in Negril, Jamaica. A well earned break and some quality time with Mrs. Ice. Love us some Island life. “You can take the boy from the Island, but not the Island from the boy” Good Luck finding this one. If you do post your proof here. Reward, if found.
  7. My new Mistress...from the beginning.

    Plenty of space for that.
  8. My new Mistress...from the beginning.

    Yes, it will be equipped with a heater, i forget how many BTU. Will Run on diesel fuel. Everything critical is in the insulated, heated cabin. Fully designed for the coldest Quebec has to throw at us. 1260 us gallons of water and 3000 gallon debris tank. The shop is always immaculate, you can eat off the floor. Just next door is the race shop for the dirtcars. Modified and Sportsman. Just as immaculate. The Green Machine belongs to the boss man’s son. Never even touched the snow last year as he runs the Deneigement ops and construction business zero time to ride. Maybe next year, I will take it for a ride and beat on it a bit. My sleds are hibernating here at home in the garage.

    You ain’t kidding, it’s clean. Always. Like an operating room.
  10. While not a thread on sleds, I figured i would share with you all the project taking up every spare minute while not out on the road. The bosses have decided it was time to expand our operations from doing vacuum truck and pressure truck work and venture into the market of Hydro Excavation. Using high pressure water and a big ass vacuum to excavate for construction projects or utility repairs etc. My new baby arrived in the shop just 2 weeks ago. She is beautiful. 2018 Western Star 4700SB. 500hp with 6 Speed Allison auto trans. Double thick frame. Fully loaded power everything with A/C. She is gorgeous. Not much to see right now, just the basics. You know what they say...”big trucks.....big bucks” no exception here, Just the cab and chassis was a cool 170k plus tax. That’s naked. Nothing on it yet. She needs some modifications which we are doing in house before she goes off to receive another steering axle to become a 12 wheeler. Then its off to Levis QC to Supervac for the real construction. First order of business was to move the two rear axles back 26”. Talk about fun. This is some serious work which includes precisely measuring and rechecking before using the giant drill to pierce all those new holes for all the bolts. Crazy. The drill clamps to frame and uses air to pull it tight to drill(impossible any other way) you are not drilling this frame by hand. Well after many drill bits and almost 2 days of drilling holes. Step 1 is almost complete. Axles are moved back. Just need to re-plumb all the airlines and put tires back on after painting frame where we worked back there. Next, we will relocate the fuel tank, air tank and air dryer. Truck will leave for Quebec on a tow truck since the drive shaft is now too short. No worries that will be arranged by Supervac as they need to mount a transfer case in the center anyway. Few photos of the truck in the shop and the others are from the Supervac site. She will look similar to these trucks when finished. There may be many like her, but this one will be mine. No truck this big in the region here. No one has this near here. All in, will be well over 600k plus tax. $$$$$$$$ supervac site.... And here.........
