    To our Northern Members

    Come get your -2degree temperature and blowing white stuff. We're not built for it, we don't want it. Have a nice day!

    Yeah.... I'll take that!!! Got to teach my boys how to chop ice and slide out the card table sized chunks without breaking them. I'm sure it's one of those finer things that they recall from their childhood.

    My 26 year old son and I are going to break ice for the cows to get a drink. He needs to get some stories to tell his kids someday so I think this will work for the “ It was so cold” tales......

    I promise to take your easy -2F weather now if you promise to take our 100F/90% humidity in July.

    It's not cold until one can feel their nose hairs freeze whilst inhaling.

    Sorry guys. Just remember that the cold you're experiencing is a clear indication of global warming.

    Cold doesn't actually begin until all of your WRF ammo hang fires (gotta keep 'em in your pocket until you need 'em). Learned that from my grandfather about 40 years ago. Turns out that temperature is roughly -38

    We're just spreading the wealth around. I had -34 at the house this morning with a touch of wind. Yesterday morning the wind chills were somewhere around -50.

    I love the cold. I'm the guy you see on the news walking in shorts during a blizzard. I haven't even dug out a winter coat yet this year.

    I was stationed at Ft. Hood and it snowed a few times while I was there. it was definitely interesting to see how a dusting of snow could cripple a state. The one time it snowed that I will never forget is when my cousin came to visit. His flight from DFW to Killeen was cancelled, so I went to pick him up. As I was pulling into the airport parking garage I saw a snowflake. I knew we were about to have an fun night. Found my cousin grabbed his baggage and we headed to the car as we were leaving the airport there was a cop warning people about the hazardous road conditions. I laughed and told him to look at my license plate. He walked around the car saw the NY plate gave me a smile and said you should be fine. Drove home and stopped a bunch of times to help people who were off the road. My cousin still talks about how bad the drivers in TX were that day.

    I feel for you folks who aren't used to , or set up to handle this kind of weather. This morning turned out -27, but sunny and light wind, and 1 above now. Tomorrow we start our slow warming spell, but that means a southerly wind, and thats when it gets COLD. Keep your critters safe, and let your faucets drip, if they ain't froze yet!

    Ship the cold and snow to me ( You PAY Shipping )
    As it is snowing here right now
    Had to get meds this morning , stopped 2 times to make sure people that I saw go in the ditch were OK and offer them the use of my cell phone if needed
    Last one had Florida plates and had no idea how to drive with snow on the road , I guess I was going 50 MPH and she wanted to go AT LEAST 70 MPH

    I even just heard a snow plow go by my house
    So that means my driveway just had all the snow on my side of the road plowed onto my driveway
    Also when I came home about 11 AM
    I had to drive through several drifts as I drove down my driveway
    Don't plan on warming up the tractor to clear driveways till Noon Tuesday at the earliest

    So Ship the Cold and Snow the cheapest ( Slowest ) way you can

    Love the snow .... well at least some snow is fun
    I did pull or set off all my traps
    As I know I am not planning on checking them for a few days
    But the forecast is now we get another batch of snow later in the week LOL

    Cold is when the 80 proof bottle of whisky in your parka pocket starts getting ice crystals in it. The next week it got really cold and the whisky was freezing solid. That was about 60 miles outside of Nome on a moose hunt. Spent about a week in a shelter cabin with no heat. There's not much wood in that area.

    What are you saying? I can hear you but I can't quite understand what you are trying to tell me.

    He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
