Well, it's 67 here right now. Been sitting in the Clam while grilling some ribeyes and shrimp. Got me a chocolate cake and some ice cream to follow up. Pretty nice

I feel for those stuck in the snow. I know some really like it...and we used to, but, my days of trying to stay warm in it are over; not to mention shoveling stairs, drives, roads etc. Got enough bone breaks, bone repairs, arthritis etc. that the cold makes things "not fun". Now, to get that mountain house sold.....

Brrrrrrrr

We woke up this morning about 7, decided to stay in bed a bit longer, pulled up the covers and slept until about 9. When we did get up, the thermometer on the pole barn showed -20F and the indoor/outdoor confirmed that it's a wee bit too cold to have been in the Cougar.....

John, over at Lakes of the North airport, the thermometer was showing -28. I believe that is a official weather station. I did not check Gaylord or Antrim County airports. We fly into 4Y4 all of the time.

Frank, I don't know what it was before dawn or from sunrise to 9AM when I took those photos. The sun has been shining all morning and it's up to +2 on the pole barn.... No matter, it's too cold to be outside cooking bacon under the awning

Honestly, even if the propane tank could deliver enough gas to keep the grill going, this "young southern lad" ain't gonna be outside in that for any reason except to steal the brandy flask from around a Saint Bernard's neck

We're planning to head south around the end of February (if we can get the pole barn open) with the slingshot behind the fifth wheel. Hopefully we can find some "above 60F weather" and get a early start on some open air riding.....

I saw that at 7:30 this morning. Several decades ago we tried to start our snowmobiling adventure at 15 below. Amazingly the machines started up but we didn't get far, hot chocolate and donuts for all. We were at Haughton Lake that trip.

It was -31C (-23F) here overnight. The water's fine...bring your skates.

The block heater worked great and the truck started without a whimper this morning. Glad I'm working inside today!
