    Wha-hoooo, it got up to -1F today, and is only -9F at 6:22 PM. Warming by Friday. An expert weather guy warns that into late Feb going into early spring there's more of this brutal cold air on the way this year. It's got something to do with the cyclical warming and cooling of the two huge oceans. Nothing to do with gore.

    Now listen, we were doing fine then you had to mention Al. (BTW I understand he wants to change his last name to Jazeera)
    It begins.

    Clockwise or counterclockwise spiral ?

    The swirl depends in which hemisphere. It's warming this AM already. Funny thing about how a warmer temp. Picks up the spirit immediately. I'm actually getting giddy just thinking about twisting the right hand.

    Smile Quick change!!

    -40 degrees C 3 days ago....and today it's +5 and rain. Now there is a sign of GLOBAL WARMING. Ha ha
    But the deep freeze will be back before you know it. We're not done yet with winter. 10 more weeks of ice fishing left. 1 month on maple syrup duties and then...WOW .....bike season is upon us.

    It was -45 windchill and nearly a foot of snow here last Tuesday. I went for a ride on Sunday! It's a good week when the snowblower and bike both actually start!

    OK, we do the rollercoaster here to, just the scale isn't quite the same.
    More like -20F to 35F
    Same difference, isn't it?

    More snow last night.
    YAY!
    More coming today.
    YAY!
    Let's not talk about Monday and Tuesday.
    Brrrrrrr!

    Can't remember a colder winter blast than today and tomorrow. Down into the minus 20s tonight with winds gusting. And the energy company puts a commercial on TV asking that we turn down our heat to 60 degrees? WTH are these fools talkin about, the house is at 62 degrees already. And the last two nights more snow. Guess I'll plug in the car in the morning. Hear tell there's a shortage of propane in places.

    Man this is turning out to be a good old time winter, way too cold. My brother told me they had 30's down in Fla. I told him that he would die here in NY, they had to send ice breakers down the Hudson River over the weekend to keep it open!

    I'm feeling for you guys in Minn, that is just downright scary!
