    Default I have got to move to someplace warmer

    It's freaking cold, I'm sick of it. It's like -4 out there. I'm bored as hell.

    The windshield washer juice in my car froze and won't spray out.

    The furnace and space heaters are all going at the same time.

    This is like Minnesota cold and those people are all freaking crazy over there.

    You can almost hear the bums stiffening in the streets of grand rapids from up here.

    Spring and fall here are spectacular but winter blows and we are right in the middle of the worst of it.

    Most sane folks just stay drunk but that got to be a bad habit.

    Jeans and t-shirt weather here. Amazing for January. Was relaxing on deck and a sea otter lazily floated on by... I swear he waved hello to me, and a cheers to this fine weather we are having out here.

    We're not all crazy, but I've been cozied up to the woodstove all day. It'll be nice when we get above zero again. Then we can finish our siding project.

    We have great property here that there is no longer a market for, should have sold out back in the late 90's.

    You must be one of those crazy Finn's or Swedes. They never get cold and cook themselves in saunas so they look 40 when they are 80. Annoying.

    At times like this I don't mind living in the mid-west. We get dysfunctional weather all year. It was in the 60s on Saturday, today 20. Will get down to 8 tonight, but I slept with my windows open on Friday night. It gets cold, and snows, but it never stays too long.

    We get the same shiit in the summer too, it can be in the 80s in March. Summer heat can be bad, but it doesn't usually stick around solid, there are usually waves of cooler air to break it up. Temperature swings of 40-50 degrees in a day are pretty standard...

    The high today was -15 degrees F. Not too bad, seemed a little chilly when I went out to throw wood in the boiler. 80 degrees and sunny in my basement, and 68 degrees in the rest of the house. Might get up to -5 tomorrow, think I'll go ice fishing for some fresh walleye. Mmmmmmm. Maybe even go for a snowmobile ride. Once your used to it it's not so bad.
    Will work on the garage mahall (48x56)once it get to single digits above, got the poles set just before the frost set in and all the materials on site.

    Humidity is your enemy folks.


    I'm living in a semi-arid clim.

    Today there was 15% humidity at 19 F and I walked across the street to where the mail kiosk is in my bluejeans and a flannel shirt. No hat.


    If I did that in the midwest at 80% humidity 19 F I would have had to wear several coats, hat, gloves and galoshes.

    Snowing a bit now. Not supposed to amount to much but I'll bet some roads will be pretty icy in the morn. Glad I don't have to go any where early.

    We don't get really cold but we get a lot of rain (Washington State). My wife and I raise honeybees and it rained all of last winter and keep going until July. About 4 weeks of summer and then rain again Our bees had to do the back stroke to get to the pollen. We are looking to move as well.

    Brother Irons it would have to warm up some to be that cold here ( -12 + wind chill some where around -30 or so)

    'Bout 3 degrees F. and -15 wind chill in N. IL tonight. It didn't get above single digits today. Sucks, but I can't imagine Winter any other way, we haven't had really cold weather for 2 years.

    It's friggen cold here in MN.
    I'm going to Iowa tomorrow, for work, and I'm actually looking forward to it because it's supposed to be 16 degrees in Des Moines.

    Good to hear! I personally hate seeing tat's and scrap metal hanging off the beach slims. Looks like litter on a beautiful landscape.

    We get the same shiit in the summer too, it can be in the 80s in March. Summer heat can be bad, but it doesn't usually stick around solid, there are usually waves of cooler air to break it up. Temperature swings of 40-50 degrees in a day are pretty standard...

    LOL ....saturday i was breaking ice on the pond for the horses......sunday i was disking up some ground for food plots.....today the ground is frozen(but the pond has melted).....supposed to be teens tonight....so back to breaking ice tommorow maybe......if you dont like the weather one day...the next will be different

    It's the freaking canucks running the fan and they pointed it down instead of across the warmer lake this time. Freaking igloo dwellers.

    This keeps up and my heating bill will be back up to 2 ducats.

    'Bout the same here in South Dakota. Made it a few degrees above zero today...wasn't sure that it was gonna get that warm. But hey, its gotta get cold if you're gonna go ice fishing:

    Nice mess of perch there! Best eating freshwater fish in my opinion, even better than bluegill.
    Currently -17 supposed to hit -27 tonight. Just let the dogs out and loaded up the boiler. The local fireman have been going around to the fire hydrants to break the dogs free. Seems they freeze in place while lifting a leg.LOL
    Actually plugged in the block heater tonight on the pickup. Helps with starting and warms up quicker. The frigid temps are hard on equipment, lots of breakdowns here locally.

    Cranky mate. It's only January. What is it gonna take you to get through March? :vollkommenauf:

    Your just going through MDing withdrawl. You're missing all that fresh air and babes scanning, er I mean scenery (not to mention treasure finding) that you had over the last year.

    Hang in there. :bear_smile:
