    Got back & we're having warmer weather.
    Wife did great with the stove !!

    Was over 40 today in the sun, melting snow on the driveway :)
    Over 8 hours of daylight & growing 5-1/2 minutes per day :)

    The center section 2012/13 wood is getting low, need about 1-1/2 month out of what's left.
    These temps will help.

    Keeps going like that Bogy, you can pull one of those pieces of carpet out from under the wood, lay down and work on your tan.
    PS. We like pictures but no pictures in the speedo needed. !!!

    Dunno where you were Dave, but last weekend it was pushing around -20*. Warm"ish" today though with the wind it certainly didn't feel like it was 30*.

    It was 55::F here today! No rain! Early spring for Groundhog day here, and he definitely saw his shadow so we will have 6 more weeks of winter here. It was nice to dry out after another month with over a foot of rain, 4 months in a row now with over a foot of rain each month since October. Glug glug glug... I pulled the tarps off my wood and let the wind blow-dry the condensation and leftover ice and snow from last week.

    Speaking of Groundhog day, I gott'a watch that movie again... I have it on DVD.

    All depends where in Alaska. State highs today were around 45* and the lows around -30*

    An awful place to put your balls Dave. Better on the green.

    Was warm water, easy on the balls LOL :)

    Known fact about water on a golf course, it has twice the gravitational pull on golf balls as the green :)

    Now : 35° , cloudy chance of rain/snow mix
