Brrrr... Now what?

Pull up a couch. It's cool in the Lounge. Just remember to be a good neighbor.

A little of that.
Since it is too cold for the auto waters I have to water the birds by hand every day on top of regular daily chores. The days are shorter and cold so a person doesn't get as much done either. Have been delivering some to the hunt clubs. By the time you round a bunch of them up deliver them and get back 2 days are gone.

Birdman; I have eliminated a negative option and decided it will be warmer much sooner than 95 days.

That's good news Rick....I like it. What is your definition of warmer and how many days do you think.

At this point I feel like anything over 40 degrees and sunny is "warm".

I guess everyone else is oblivious to the cold.

What I find interesting is how they have to lean their sleds over and get them up on one front ski to be able to maneuver in the tight woods. It makes the sleds into a bike instead of a trike.

I got the bikes out and rode around Wednesday when it was 57 degrees. Felt good. However, the "dirt" was really slick with all of the ice. Should we be buying boxes of screws?

Got out of work just in time to go put in 2 hours of chainsaw work. Felt so good getting outdoors and doing some manual labor.

Is that Manhattan today? If so, you've got some great snow! We are getting a dusting up to an inch right now in Overland Park.

No that was right before Christmas. We got ~10 inches around town. My son and I went around town and pushed out probably 6-7 vehicles that were stuck, and pulled out 5 with my recovery strap. Had a blast doing it!
We're just getting cold horizontal blowing snow today.
