I don't want to seem like a whiner...

But...

It was just a week ago that we had that incredible ice storm, in fact there are some poor folks who still don't have their power back.

Well, last night we had a foot of snow dumped on us!

But wait, there's more, we are expecting yet another big storm tomorrow.

Yeah us!

;(

Back to the ice storm for a second, there was so much work to be done that Nova Scotia (Canada, hey!) sent a 45 man crew to help with the work of restoring power. Each member of the crew receives per-diem pay of $11 every day they are here.

The 45 men decided to donate their per-diem pay to the York County Food Rescue program.

$11 may not sound like much, but when you do the math that comes out to $500 day ($4,000 so far). Regardless of the amount, it's pretty darn impressive that these men, far from home and working long hours in freezing weather are thinking of the needs of others.

Yeah them!

;)
