    We have yet to get above freezing since Christmas and things don't look very good for that to change soon. Other side of the mountains, on the front range, they have been having 60 degree plus days till yesterday. I think Denver made 31 degrees. Supposed to snow a bit more today.

    You have my pity. Here in South Central Texas it's 70 and has been all week. We have been hoping for freezing weather in the Austin area to freeze all the liberals up there.

    These storms keep skipping over the front range doing little but dropping the temp
    then landing hard on the Kansas border and moving east.

    17 with wind chill of 9 in Denver area now. High of 43. About like it has been for a couple of weeks. No substantial snow since the big storm before Thanksgiving but we still have piles in shady areas. Jdfoxinc hit it typical January.

    We had the same front pass through that Hossfly had. It started raining during the day. We sat up and watched it as it moved closer. It got nasty about midnight. Torrential rain, winds at 50+MPH, lightning, and wind. Also a few tornados across the State with property damage, trees blown down and power outages. Our power went off about midnight and was off until about 8:00 this morning. Made me thankful that we bought a generator. I think that may be the longest that its run at a time since I retired.

    Some of you guys are still in line for it but it appear tone getting weaker.

    It went around us.
    We got a little smattering of rain, and its a breezy, cold & wet 40-ish degrees.

    We had tornado alerts, but they went around us too.

    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    Warm right now in NW Ohio with lots of rain. Wind is supposed to pick up later. I loaded ammo this morning out in my barn and didn't light my heater. That isn't normal for mid-January.

    Here in southwest Missouri today, we are having what used to be "normal" weather for January in that it is snowing great big flakes and lots of 'em. If it continues it will be deep by night fall. It is 28 and falling. Yesterday and last night we had storms, tornadoes in the area, and 4" of rain with road closings at most low water crossings. I should mention that it was about 60 here yesterday morning for a while. So today we have had ice followed by sleet, and now heavy snow. I guess this all means that global warming has ended in our area.

    Looking forward to a dumping of snow over the weekend. Have new tractor with a 74" pull blower. I have only used it three times this year.

    Snow is much better than freezing rain.

    Found 2 pine trees on the line on my property, called it in with locations. Gen set been running for bout 14 hrs. Has ran for up to 30 hrs before and went ahead and changed oil and filter then. I use synthetic oil and it should last a good while. Found the mail box out across the driveway in the woods. A lot of green pine trees down in the thickets. 1 boiler lost control board in big greenhouse small green house lost all power , got it all fixed for now supposed to get to 32’ tonight. Hope the boilers keep working. That power off that pole sure is cheap compared to running a big Gen set, and 2 boilers. Have about 400 gallons of propane left in big tank, so we’re ok for a while.

    I was just outside with my dog, it's -10 in high country Colorado. It's too cold to run the snow blower even though there's 2.5' of snow in my yard. Tonight it will probably be -20, that's so cold it makes your chest and eyeballs hurt...
