      Don't get me wrong, while I was taken back a bit by MTNGUN's seemingly desolate winter landscape, there is a lot to be liked about being left alone, kudos to you MTNGUN !

      I don't think he has much worries to Californians being comfortable there, and I ain't talking temperature.

        In the summer I cant see a house (but ours) in the fall / winter the absolute closest is about the same, I smile and wave and would help them out of the ditch but i do not get friendly with neighbors. This will not last long, there getting closer and closer

            Ja, since I moved to the tropics I found out that you can do stuff in the summer.

            Up in Minnesota it got to 30 or more below zero, AND 100 deg also (F). here we still get the 100, but only zero F. (that would be from -34C to +38C, or from -18C to 38C, for you others)

            I used to love winter, summer was that boring time you can't ski...... I found out summer isn't so bad after all.

            That is a lot of snow, though, unless that roof is pretty big..... the pile is from the whole roof, right? Gonna be wet around there when it melts.

              Temps have plummeted here in Phoenix. Down to 50 tonight, burrrrrr...

              But don't worry about us. We have food and should survive if the power holds out for heating. I just hope it doesn't stay this cold for long...

              There IS a reason I live in Phoenix, and it's not the late Summer temps.

                That pic looks like my back yard did a few days ago, before we hit 50 and melted everything!

                Three sidewalks and my driveway hook togther in the same are, so removing the snow is a real pain. this winter I got the idea of taking the snow and piling it up against the shed, which is beside the garage, so with all the snow we had a pile that reached the roof. wasn't much of a stretch to smooth it out and lash the ladder to the garage to build a nice sledding ramp. Did have to build a few berms to direct the sleds, but the grandkids and I had a great time sledding off the roof.

                  Yup...the pile is from the one side of the roof. And it is a big roof.
                  But this all came in about a week....and it isn't going anywhere til at least March.
                  Got about twice as much as last year...already.
                  I'm going to have to move that big pile somehow come spring....it will melt and flood my septic tank.
                  I'm hopin the missus gets my backhoe fixed before that
                  I have to leave it for awhile tho...I have a whack of snow covering the septic field this yaer...hoping it won't freeze again.
                  That was a pain in the a$$...literally

                    We have over 60 inches total down here. Shattered the old record by more than a foot and its still coming down.

                      Gene...one of the long haul truckers that stays at the motel we run was telling me about the snow down your way.
                      He said it was an absolute mess.
                      So...how doing with that global warming idea? Are you convinced yet

                        At 57 the cold is worse than the snow. It was -6 here in N.Illinois and even with gloves my hands hurt. I used to just brush the snow off my windshield with my un-gloved hand. Now if I do that it's like my joints are being stabbed by needles.
                        If I could find someplace with the same opportunities and better weather, I'd take it.

                          Semi-trucks can't enter the city limits without chains. There is only a couple of the big wreckers that can move them when they get stuck. Yesterday there were ten of them sideways on one short stretch of road.

                          So much snow brings on other possible problems. If we were to get one of those warm fronts that can blow through here and this amount starts to melt to fast it could really become a disaster.

                          Global warming? It's been so damn cold here for so long, I think a little of that be be alright. Just a little.

                            Just tell lazlo that you have never seen 112 F for a high and you will be thinking about him come summer
                            Yeah, no kidding! Two winters ago, Austin hit 99° the first week of January.

                            It's funny though, I used to ski alot when I lived in Maryland, and it was pretty normal for Killington, VT to be 20 - 30 below, and we'd never notice the difference. But fast-forward 10 years, and it hit 32° in Austin a couple weeks ago, and it was uncomfortable

                            I used to go to the Intel site in Chandler (Phoenix) Arizona, and like BadDog says, during the summer it gets so hot that everyone shifts their schedule to the early morning, and you basically don't see anyone outside between Noon and 3.

                            I think you physically/mentally adapt to your surroundings...

                              Bah 112 isnt that hot anyways, I was checking cotton in 94' when it hit 128 in Parker and Lake Havasu AZ , snuck off to the river that day to go cool off and even it was warm.
