    It was -6 here in the Mohawk Valley and -18 up north where I work. The boiler is cooking away.

    Willhound, you live in an abandoned missile silo to keep warm? That is seriously cold.

    Someday maybe, but apart from the cold, we don't suffer from earthquakes, tsunami's, hurricanes or tornado's, so all in all it's pretty good.

    People tend to live a little longer too,....but I think it's because they're frozen about half the time, so don't wear out ! ;-)

    OK, you got me Willhound.

    The coldest I've seen up north is about -40, but the old timers still talk about the late '70s when it hit 50 below.

    Say, Willhound, you want to keep the brass monkey inside in weather like that!

    The brass monkey and everything else! Even the dog is pretty quick about going outside for her duty and then run right back in.

    This is just the prelude. Most years we're good for at least 10 days to 2 weeks of solid -40 in January-early February. With wind chill it is quite often down into the -50's.

    Like my Dad always says, "Good thing we didn't know about wind chill when we were kids, or we would have been cold !"

    Only about 9 degrees here in western mass, and I took the dog for a snowshoe run through the woods.

    Warm and balmy....sunny, and I'm sweating!

    10 below here in northern Vermont, but I heard it was 24 below about 25 miles away. Looks like it will be colder tonight.
    Stay warm,
    Reggie

    Eric, do you work in Old Forge?
