Quite a roller-coaster of weather there! Actually I could stand that looking forward to the 70 day.

Don't come over here. I thought my face was going to crack off today.

And last I looked, it'll be worse tomorrow

High for tomorrow here in central MN is -5 F. The wind is howling. Sure wish I was on a beach somewhere soaking up some Vitamin D.

0 F this morning. Sigh. But at least there's no wind.

Yes! We don't need any more "beautiful weather" for awhile. Today it is 70's and sunny, and blades of emergent plants are few and far between. Right now I envy all those snow/rain/sleet/hail storms. Just think about how beautiful the flowers are going to be this spring for all you in the East and Southeast!

It was -18 with a winchill of -36 this morning. At least we don't have to worry about the humidity. Schools were closed for the third time this year.

Well, I have my 1 degree (tempwise) to put in my pocket. And my super-warm coat that I rarely wore as it was not cold enough - some years I didn't get to wear it and was disappointed. It makes me look like a moon man!

All you Northern retirees need to move south. Here is NE Florida it is colder than normal but you can still drive and walk on the beach if you care to do so.

Hum yes, I went hiking this weekend and everything was dry dry dry. And it doesn't look like we are going to get some rain any time soon.

This year's gardening will consist of clearing out dead tree branches, ladder fuels such as various bushes, leaves, etc. and making regular dump runs...do what we can before fire season really "heats up."

Brings to mind the old quote "Be careful what you wish for. You might get it."

I am wearing a 25 year old Eddie Bauer down coat that weighs a ton--none of that fashionable lightweight The North Face(tm) look unfortunately. But mostly I try to stay on the warm side of my house's walls--the inside. More subzero cold is coming. And then it is February!

My moon suit is actually a North Face bought in the late 90s at a local camping/surplus store. It's black (the idea being it would absorb the sun) and down. I'm really glad I have it this year!

Not sure whether to post here or one of the the car threads. DW's new Honda Accord has been a garage queen since it snowed. My gosh, we can't have it getting dirty!

My once-pristine pickup now looks like I've been slaving in a salt mine.
