it warmed up in the KINGDOM today so i decided to do a little torching on BAD BUSINESS. it is a good thing because less then an hour later i took BAD BUSINESS swimming (just a quick dip). behind the KINGDOM is a cat train trail that has a good swamp which i use for testing to see how frozen it is. well it is not frozen and lots of water. wow is all i had to say when BAD BUSINESS stopped dead. i was lucky with the holes in the pads and the cats just backed out very carefully without the track jamming up.

It may have "warmed up" but it looks darn cold to me. GWH

the temperature went to +1C over night, not good when you are marketing the great white north. LOL

Hi KOO-(sounds like a martial arts name or something).

Just curious, is that a pan of water on the fender?

I just noticed the holes in the track...and the strike wand...never mind! Thanks for all the posts. Great pictures, etc.

i was torching the holes in the pads to let the wet snow and water pass thru, if you don't the tracks will lock right up. i checked the swamp today and if i had made it another length of the cat it would have been 6 feet of water then mud. WOW EH!!!!!!

Bernie I noticed that too & I thought maybe it was a big pan of hot soup to eat to keep warm, just kidding, but yes I wondered when I spotted it yesterday what it was on there for.

KOO, if 0 degrees Centigrade is the same as our 32 F., then 1 degree would be slightly above freezing; and indeed, warm for this time of year up there. No wonder there was slush instead of ice. GWH

yes it is warm and melting but the stuff is not frozen even when the temp drops to -40C. the ground did not freeze in the fall and is warm with all the snow on top. that swamp should have at least 2 inch of ice but it is just water. i call it my test swamp behind the KINGDOM. i have sunk everything i own in there and this is the first time i have sunk a cat so close to shore. usually i sink in the middle where the water runs thru. very strange year this year for sure and caught me by surprise.

check out these pictures of water flowing at -40C.
