    Yeah, if we have a couple storms with snow to plow up a snowbank before we get an ice storm. And that's the river/bay, not a lake. It's tidal salt water, stays open all winter

    One of the many things I've learned on this forum is that I don't want to live in Alaska. :)

    Eh it's not bad where I live.

    It was pretty nice today, was in the mid 30s this afternoon though the sun was out and there was no wind so it felt much warmer.

    If we hit -20* during the winter that is really about it. The wind does suck though. Last year I had NO snow in my yard for most of the winter... darn wind kept blowing it all across my driveway a few feet from the front of the garage. Don't know why, but the nighbor to the right of me doesn't have that happen and his driveway is maybe 30ft from mine.

    Okay Gamma. Looks like bsj425 wins with the coldest temperature and picture of it this week! I will try to remember to post this thread each Thursday afternoon. If you guys don't see it by 6PM maybe someone could bring it up again for me. I think I we could go with the Thursday 10PM to Saturday 10AM every week through the winter. Should be interesting. Later. And have good one.

    How 'bout Montana? We're the coldest state outside of Alaska, holding the record low temp. for the lower 48 of -70F ! Doesn't that sound nice & warm? :)

    No, it's great, it's all good.

    Really.

    But could someone explain something to me? What do people *do* to deserve living in a warm climate?

    Well, qualify that. Isn't anyplace warmer? LOL

    In WA you have to prefer rust to tan. In CA it helps if you are a fruit or a nut and like to veg out.

    What about the land of Oz? NZ? I don't notice any Kiwis posting pix of their thermies on this thread (so okay, it's summer there). Granted, there are many interesting ways to die Down Under, but freezing to death?

    Scratch that. Googled "freezing to death in Australia" and got some hits. Apparently things got pretty chilly in Perth last year.


    And found this engaging read as well: http://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-adventure/As-Freezing-Persons-Recollect-the-Snow--First-Chill--Then-Stupor--Then-the-Letting-Go.html?page=all

    There's a penance. Large centipedes in your shoes. Sometimes in your bed. Never step out of bed without the lights on in Hawaii.

    Have not experienced that yet in Hawaii, but that might just be the accommodations. It is a fertile country.

    Oh. Right. Forgot about that stuff.

    North Carolina: I turned on the light in a kitchen and thought I saw a mouse skittering across the floor. It was a cockroach. I am not making that up. And possums. Are they some kind of joke? Naked rodents that may--or may not--be dead? And bugs that live on your animals? Snakes? Really? Poisonous snakes? Really really? Chiggers? ("What are chiggers?" "My, you are new around here, aren't you?") Ringworm?

    Wisconsin: waking up in the night with woodticks crawling around in bed? And it gets dark at night in the summertime. That's scary. And weird. How can you possibly get anything done if it's dark at night?

    Got it. Warm climates like Hawaii and Wisconsin and North Carolina are for very brave people. This is what people do to deserve to live there. They are very brave.
