Is it "crispy" at your house this morning? It's a balmy -33C with a stiff wind blowing here. I can only imagine what it's like where you are. I heard that Kamloops was supposed to hit -29 this morning. That's awful cold for them I think. I think I'll join the "I hate winter" club! That WILL make it go away..right?

" hmm " topic should be. "that's why I love Georgia"

I was getting mosquito bit yesterday. Today thou it is +43 degrees F.

Neighbors house burned, I just took them a thermos full of coffee. He is standing in the yard without a coat. I tried to give him mine.

I just checked the thermometer. -35c (-31f). It's starting to get chilly. If it gets any colder I'll have to start wearing my winter coat to work. They hit -57c in Smith River in northern BC yesterday. That is -70f.

I'm a wimp (like Dave http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//wink.gif)
Unlike dave it's about +5F here today and I'm liking the indoors.
I guess if I got out more I'd get acclimated it and it wouldn't bother me so much.

Note to self: get up off the damn chair.

Hahahahaha!!! Funny!!! Another cool one under the belt! Truck door lock was so stiff this morning that the key broke off in it http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//frown.gif Nothing that the wife's new eyebrow tweezers couldn't pull out http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif Another nice thing about nice, cool weather like this...them big ol' blocks of wood that are full of knots split like shingles! Geez...we had a woman from Texas come up here today to visit. She's very impressed with the temperature. We told her to bring warm clothes...she thought she did http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Yeah it has been -35C the past couple of mornings, but it is only -25 now, and supposed to be in the balmy -teens tommorow. And I had to work this weekend. This involves bits of outside work with hoses that like to freeze unless you keep them on or blow them out with steam.

Hey, we have a heat wave! It has warmed to -15 tonight and might even reach zero tommorow.


01-17-2005, 07:25 AM
Evan...the same here! Only hit -16 last night. Got to run around outside this morning at 5am with just a shirt on for a change (easier to split wood with no jacket). You do know what will happen know? I'm thinking we are in for a ton of snow again. Be sure to cover up your "finger" http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Just a little clarification. The finger is not my work, I just stumbled upon the picture. Actually, my wife did.
