How'd you make out Stu? The winner here in the US as Hamden CT with 40 inches.

We got off pretty light, maybe a foot overall. It sounds like CT beat our record. It took most people about 3 days to dig out from that one. That happened just before a weekend too. Funny how it happens that way.

I spent the evening of the storm pushing cars up Toronto's main street:

Oddly enough, that's how I tend to classify my fun.

Sometimes the risk is the reward.

I've noticed a few guys at my gym wearing CrossFit t-shirts, but all of them do bodybuilding style workouts.

Matt, you've been married too long. What girl is going to be attracted to a bodybuilder T shirt?

I'm getting a crossfit t-shirt from a crossfitter who was insulting me over the last few weeks. Without knowing me or anything about me. I kept it light hearted, never took anything personally, and he's been kind of humble since. I told him I want an "Uncle Rhabdo" T-shirt and he said he'll get me and one of my training partners one.

Then I plan on making a mock Crossfit video whilst wearing them.

Never underestimate what people will wear if it's free.

Many people here buy used clothes that come from the US, but don't read English. More than once we've seen a little old lady in church wearing a t-shirt that's crude or even obscene. It's pretty funny, with all the ex-pats stifling laughs.

You should just challenge a few Crossfiters to do the Crossfit total. Then when you win, you make them give you their Crossfit t-shirts so you can hang them from your belt like scalps.
