    Sorry to hear you guys up North are getting hit. I was working outside in my T-shirt today.....but that’s one of the reasons I moved down here to Texas.;)

    Same here, it dipped down into the 50's this morning. Wasn't sure the truck would start. Thank goodness for a good battery.

    I think most of us would miss winter if we moved.

    But your missing this. IMG_20191223_090519[9712].jpg IMG_20191222_145638[9714].jpg
    This was a day or two before Christmas it would look completely different today and the Wolverine with tires probably wouldn't get very far.

    Winter no... the change in seasons yes... but after 60+ years it’s a price I’m willing to pay:D!

    You’re right. I do miss a nice snow fall. Waking up and seeing a couple feet of fresh powder. Thinking school would be closed and I could play all day......
    Now, it’s 6 hours of hard work and a wife with cabin fever!
    Anybody wanna buy a couple nice snowblowers?:):D

    If I thought it would keep it from snowing, I’d buy them in a heartbeat

    Your pics brought back some fine memories ,I miss being able to fish on the ice . These pics were from Lake Champlain on the NY/VT border ...it was 20 below zero that day and 20-30 mph winds brought it down to 30- 40 below . Tip-ups would disappear from sight within minutes with the drifting . You can kinda get an idea the cold from the pics.

    Warm here today in North Florida, 67* with a high of 70*. Sitting in my easychair, drinking black coffee, watching Fox News. It's rough.

    Our club had a match in SE Texas this morning. High-40s to low 50-s, but 10-15 mph gusts, mostly head-on. A lot of whimpering about the tough conditions. Seems mild compared to what most of y’all had. I hope you catch a break soon.

    Had 6 inches last Thursday, then a couple nights of -12 or so, then 10 inches last night. Then its going back below zero tonight. We have about 2 feet on the ground now but the good news is that its half of what we had last year at this time.:)
    There is more good news; no ticks, no bad thunderstorms, no mosquitoes, no humidity, no sun burn (no sun), I could go on and on... and only 3 1/2 months till spring.o_O Gotta luv winter in NE Vermont:D ~ Bob D
