Default Ralph Lauren Metallic paint gone from HD

So I need some metallic paint pronto, no time to order it, head over to HD and no metallic paint to be had. Now, I have to drive 30 min to see if the closest BM has the Modern Masters colors I need in stock.

To make matters worse, HD was out of snow brushes...as was Target and my local food store. We get our first snowfall of the season (1") and everything is sold out. My daughter took mine and the other daughter took the extra one in the garage

I'm assuming the first paragraph has to do with paint and the second to do with weather?

PT can be a weird place to be, of late.

I think my snow brushes melt in the summer time. Every winter I have to buy a new one since I can't seem to find last years snow brush.

One end to scrap ice and one end to brush snow off my van that may have accumulated whilst parked. I always try to brush most of it off so it does not keep flying off into the guy behind me while driving

Why not call BM before wasting time driving there?

Normally I'd say what does snow look like, but we just got slammed with 1cm and it shut the entire lower mainland down

I had to use the RL metallic a couple times for a customer throughout the year. You can order it thru the HD website and it ships for free. I was surprised how fast it came too.

I used to laugh my arse off when that would happen out there. Tiny little bit of snow and an entire region with absolutely no knowledge of how to drive in it. I knew how, but didn't want to drive much in it because you were a target for everyone else.

That's the main reason I drive a POS volvo to work. It's a tank!

where I come from, that's called a "5 minute" snow brush. 5 minutes until it breaks.

I just need the brush part of it. I have a short handled one specifically for ice. By the way, the BM /Ace Hardware had the snow brush in stock.

You are so right. But, I had a old "recanted" MM color in a mason jar and not sure of the color's name. I have their brochure....but, was not sure. They had it in stock.

That one in the picture is definitely not going to break much ice! We used to sell those like hotcakes. $1.99. First good ice storm and we would sell a bunch more of them.

That's one thing Canada is better at then anyone. Their ice scraper/snow brushes are the best. Their beer sucks though.

We've drifted far enough off topic that I might as well continue.

Given your location, I assume you go to ON and likely make the rookie mistake of going to "The Beer Store". What a lot of people don't realize is that The Brewers Retail (owners of The Beer Stores) is 98% owned by LaBatt's (Anheuser-Busch InBev) and Molson's (Coors). No wonder their selection sucks.

The selection of craft beers at the LCBO, on the other hand, has become astounding. We only had 4+ weeks at the cottage this summer, so we didn't get to explore all of the offerings.

You'll be happy to know we've done grown up some Gough! You can get wine and beer (yep, the good craft beers too) in most grocery stores now. Just started this about a month or two ago here in Ontario.

As for American beers, excluding the micro brew stuff.... All I need to say is Pabst Blue Ribbon, Extra light. I remember when I was a kid and we went to stock car races down in the States. Guys would be buying this crap in 24s and just have it sitting beside them as they guzzled away. That stuff's brutal.

Cool, that must have happened in the month since we left. Although, in all fairness, that might not have made it to the Manitoulin yet. They're a little slow to adopt new practices...the road signs aren't even bilingual yet.

I was shocked when I learned that PBR was the favorite beer of hipsters....

Nope. The beer in Sudbury sucks too.

I couldn't say. In the 60 years I've been traveling to Sudbury, I made it a point never to stay long enough to have a beer.

Super Stack made it a little better.
