    Tell the kids to pack up their flip-flops and sunscreen. Tomorrow is going to be a beach day at 19.

    NO! You don't. You are not in the time frame yet! :lol: So there.

    Dude, you are living in the wrong friggin place. What the ........! I also believe you will win every time. This post also reminds me why I do not want to live anywhere near where you live. We have a few weeks usually every year when it goes below -10 at night. Not to many years back we had several years in a row where we would have two weeks straight around -25 when I was working the midnight shift. Glad I no longer have to work the midnight shift, and damn glad we have not had those temps in a few years. I'm good with the -10 for the lowest.

    No need for sunscreen we only have a couple of hours of light now and we lose about 8 minutes a day so 16 minutes every sun up/ down cycle. Soon we will only have dusk for a few weeks with the sun maybe popping over the hill tops for an hour or so.

    Oh, my, god. The only therapy for that little sunlight is a glass door on your fireplace or woodstove. Tell me you have one.

    NEVERMIND. I GOOGLED YOUR WOODSTOVE. YOU'LL BE ALRIGHT. NICE!

    Can any of you beat bsj425? Out of curiosity, I am also interested in seeing pictures of the temps around the country(s) from you guys, even though you may not be able to compare to the guy who lives in conditions not suitable for most living things.

    HehHeh . . . my sister keeps trying to convince me to come up and visit her in the Winter . . . I always politely refuse . . . I figure if I want snow and cold I just have to wait for it a bit longer here in Maine.

    On a side note though . . . I am hoping to visit her this Summer . . . she's moving to Wasilla and buying a house with actual running water and central heat . . . needless to say she's pretty excited.

    Done a year 60 miles north of Billings. We did not get the wood stove done until a week after Halloween. Running joke was: Jays so lazy the only thing he done for the winter was keeping that stove going. I had an 029 that didnt like the cold any better than I did, and a maul. No wood what so ever other than scraps off the cabin we where building. March came and I was out of there for good. We had so much time on our hands the stairs railing got carved into a wilderness Seine.

    Funny, on Thursday according to the forecast the low was supposed to be 7, but according to the pic it is -19.
    I wonder why they do not update the forecasted temps when the current temp goes out of range?

    The temp changes so much the projected forcasts are NEVER right . Its not uncommon for the temp to change 40 degrese in a matter of hours. So you just go by whatever temp it is it sure is nice when the temp goes from -40 to 0 in a day or 2 makes you want to put the shorts on.

    I was watching the train go by, a guy was peeing off the back of the train
    Froze so fast the yellow icicle jerked him right off the train. :lol:

    No fires here! Unfortunately the small condo I live in doesn't have any wood-burning appliance... I think these condos used to have woodstoves in them, but the Owners Assosiation had them removed a long time ago due to liability concerns I think... :mad: so for now, I am restricted to using electricity to stay warm

    That is to bad. A wise decision on their part though. To many people out there that don't need to be burning fires inside, or outside, for that matter. :lol:

    There you go. That is awesome. I just had a bon-fire in the back yard for anyone in the family who could make it. Not a bad turn out. I have a lot of brothers and sisters and they all have kids. So you never know who is going to show up when you send out the e-mail to all the brothers and sisters and parents.

    I made up a crockpot of home made chili and the wife made up some johny cake. Then came the home made macaroni and cheese, chicken/broccoli alfredo, fresh Italian bread, brownies, chocolate chip cookies. And I had a cold beer. Okay, I had three cold beers. ;-) Some of the advantages of having a bon-fire/family get together. I am still watching the bon-fire burning out there. It was cooling down pretty good out there. About 30 right now.
