    Yeah, no real precip this weekend but colder than a hag's heart. Low 20sF. I spent most of the afternoon outside melting the ice out of my chipper/shredder ( that'll teach me to leave it uncovered) and getting the frozen piles of leaves off the grass. I'm only home during daylight hours a few hours on Saturday and all day Sunday so I've gotten behind. I had to use a pitchfork for some of them. No problems, but you have to keep the skin covered, especially the bald head and the fingers!

    Topendscrapper, it's the same with cold as with heat, the humidity makes all the difference. I don't know where Rocco is, but it sounds similar to here. In the winter the humidity is essentially zero. We have cold, but sunny winters. Working outside can be quite pleasant even well below freezing. It is when the sun goes down that you realize it's cold.

    One interesting thing, we are over 6600 feet here. The other day I was talking to the guy who delivers our propane. He moved here from Tennessee, and he commented how much stronger the sun is here. More than a mile less atmosphere makes a difference.

    Cheers, Carl

    It's pretty damp here, relative humidity in the winter is typically over 50%. Today, it's just below freezing, 95% RH with light snow.

    Okay, now we're getting it.



    I hung my 8' Meyer plow on my truck on Saturday only to find that the pump motor was junk. Got the new one on yesterday.
    Snowblower's tuned up,reflectors are up in the driveway and the snow shovels are out of the shed.
    I guess I'm as ready as I can get.
    It's only a matter of time before northern or western members shows us what REAL winter looks like. Lol

    We had about 3 inches on the ground for a couple of days, but the sun came back today and it is almost gone now.

    What I showed above is all gone now. We had a couple of warm days and it went quick. It has been replaced with 2feet in the last day with another 2-3 feet expected. Pics to follow.

    Not surprised to hear that given the temperature and winds today. I'm at the red pin on this map, sweet FA on the ground here.

    My area was settled by United Empire Loyalists, these people were basically refugees (mostly British) from the American revolution, they brought their place names with them.
