    Good luck. Glad you are getting it and so far almost all the snow has missed us this winter. We have less than an inch on the ground.

    Thank you. We could lose power if that forecast is right we usually do.

    Its been snowing with freezing drizzle on and off for 24 hours now. Its damp and raw out, and sloppier then hell. Waiting for branches to start falling under the weight of the ice. One good thing- the wood stove is crankin

    I'm patiently waiting for some real winter weather so I can crank my stoves up a little......this running just barely over "idle" is getting old.

    I saw some low single digits, but that's apt to change as it seems they adjust it lower each day.....
    I know when it's zero or lower outside because when I walk out on the backporch to go to work in the morning just by the way the air feels in my breathing. It's been awhile since we've had any real stretch of cold air, it doesn't look like this one is going to be all that cold.

    Last night when I checked the weather they had us going down to -23 on Tuessday, today they bumped it up to -7.

    This morning I walked out of the garage,I look down the driveway and the turkeys were gliding in for a landing, gotta grab my camera tomorrow.

    Tuesday I was coming out of the woods from a small walk, the turkey flew right in front of me, missed by about four feet.
