    How many are having a blizzard right now? Pics of the aftermath would be interesting. It started here in western ny about an hour ago. Time to go to my loading room and start prepping cases. We have had a warmer than usual winter so far but now it is very cold and windy. I hope everyone stays safe and warm.

    Time to start working on the sun tan Dan. Balmy 56 degrees up here in the big cow pen, last week we had upper 70's Friday and snow/sleet mix Saturday morning north and northwest of here. 2 seasons in 24 hours, God I love Texas weather.

    Been in the 60s and 70s here for a week, have a fire laid in the shop and I haven't needed it. Typical Arkansas weather. Feel sorry for you guys up there where it's so cold, I don't think I could take it anymore...

    We received this from mother nature early this morning. Just finished plowing the driveway. First time this year. We had grass showing just a couple days ago.

    I'm just coming in from cleaning snow. Worked on it all day and didn't get finished, we have about 4" but it is capped with hard frozen ice an inch thick in most places. I just looked at the wifes phone the wind chill is -13 and going down.

    Climbed up to 18 today in N.H. Decided to go out coyote hunting with snow coming in. The coyotes didn’t want to play the game.

    And I'm ashamed of myself complaining. Like summer here in mid Ohio compared to some of you. 45° today but had freezing rain, about 1/8" of ice, and 45 mph win gusts. Of course the power went out for a few hours but I have a whole house generator. The temp will be only 18° tomorrow for a high. I'd like to shoot but they would have to pry my cold dead hands off my gun! Nothing to do with 2nd amendment rights. Just would be froze to it out in the field.

    It was a ground blizzard here today with 30-40 mph gusts. At times I couldn’t see the 100 yard targets but if you looked up it was a nice blue sky.

    Not to bad here, 7 dgrees and headed down. Got another foot of snow last night. got everything opened up about noon. suppose it'll all be blowed shut by morning. Half mile driveway is nice for privacy but there are times it gets to be a bit much.Worry about spring gonna be alot of water and the ground is full from all the rain last summer. would not trade it for anything. East central MN.
