-49F with the windchill here last night.

Silly kids, the news and weather stations make money off of fear, thus, they deal in weatherP0rn (tm)

OK.  I'll not bother whining about our -20 wind chills over here.  But we're not used to this crap. 

Banked the stove at 10:30 and cranked (ok slid...  I quietly slid) the damper open.  Got up at 3 and stuffed 4 more logs in cuz it was still a bit chilly.  Woke up at 5 to a balmy 80 degrees in the kitchen.  :)  That'll do.

Heh, it's winter again.  I could see the lawn on Monday.


Thursday - a couple inches
Saturday - seven inches
Today - 3 on the ground and still coming


A big thank you to the unknown neighbor who cleared my driveway unbeknownst to me.  I looked out last night and it was done.  Unfortunately, it's all covered again this morning.   :crazy:   Guess I'll gear up and head out after this cup of coffee and git 'er dun.

Still coming down here. 4 inches+ now. Another line is going to come through with in an hour. Drinking my coffee now. Taking the sport-touring SUV to meet some F.U.C.K.E.R.S. for coffee this morning. Nice having four wheel drive.

We picked up around 1- inches on the last few days.  The snowmobiling is back for now!  At least I can ride something...

Nothing when I went to bed and woke up to this. Sure is pretty but I'm done with it.

Was that a 90’s prime time soap?  Or perhaps a SNL skit.

The hills have eyes.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.
