Effin eh.  BTW, that list seems pretty lacking in Québécois cultural jargon..  
Cinquante:  beer.
Pepsi: Pepsi
DuMaurier: cigarettes
Merde: poop
Danseuse : stripper.
There's lots more that SBR prolly knows as he is from The West Island.

Well, Cinquante is a particular flavour of beer (Labatt's 50). Hmm, I will have dig back in the memory bank for more Quebec-focused Hinterlandanisms. One of my faves is "hotdog" which translates to "hot dog" instead of the "French from France" version, which is "chien chaud." Of course, if you want to get technical, there is the awesome "hotdog steamé" which is you can get just across the border from New York. Puis des frites.

Some real snow at last. Telemark Dave was talking about poaching some fast grass this morning, not sure if he did. I think I'll wait till it gets legalized next year.



Didn't ski but I fire up the orange monster and tackled the driveway for the first time this season:

Nada fast grass today.. Must be getting old and jaded.. But mostly lacking any gumption.. BTW, if you look very carefully, there's a sticker on SBR's Kubota.. It's red and white, and says "Drive it if you can".

Agreed and thanks, rivercOil.

Sometimes life in the Hinterlands is a bit trying but after calling the tow truck, I was able to call on TD to give me and the dog a lift home. Thanks, bro. Just a busted belt but the car doesn't go far with no power steering or electrical power.

The view of my front yard and drive this AM..  When we still had a smidgen of snow..  The forecast for the next week or two is grim...

Quite grim, really. Maybe you should have bought a used fat bike instead of those fancy new fat skis. Same store, different floor.
