Funny George you talking about snow build up on the tent. Every morning (early) after snow dumping from the night before, I go out to find the tent sagging big time at corners from water build up. The two heaters keep it nice inside and melt snow when it falls on top. Each time I go to get my ladder and a bucket, then freeze my fingers in freezing water as I scoop out. No way will this tent fail! Not allowed.

Funny stuff, Jim. I had a great laugh. The masses rise against the evil forces, and our wives are the leaders! This must be some sinister plan to get us back into taking out the trash and mowing the lawn.

Thankfully, I don't need the ez-up, at least until my temporary shelter (plywood and 2 X 4 legs) blows away. I was really stupid with the canopy. A couple of days ago, I was thinking, I should put that thing away. I'd moved it out of the way when I built the ugly plywood cover over the oven, and I staked it down just in case of wind, but I wasn't using it at all. Who knew that an inch of snow would bring that thing to its knees? It was only 80 bucks, but it was a champ when the rains came on our last camping trip.

RIP canopy. I will miss you, at least next time we go camping. Right now, your going to cost me 11 bucks at the dump...... Hmmm perhaps cremation??

George, don't tell your wife it was only $80. She would say "Dinner reservations please....."

I especially like your reference to Jean Shephard and the hands down greatest Christmas movie of all time - A Christmas Story (my twisted opinion)

With all due respect to your opinion, RT, I feel compelled to point out that the greatest Christmas movie of all time is, in fact, "Jaws."
