    You don't feel any colder, you just get cold faster.... Then the numbness sets in.

    Balmy 27F/-3C here with lots of new snow. 7-10" but I think we beat that already. My new best friend, Schatzi (little treasure in german), seems to really enjoy the snow! She doesn't have to shovel:rolleyes:

    don't worry, you can't. -60 feels exactly like -30....instantly cold. very cold.

    The good news is that when it gets above zero it will feel like a heat wave.

    Broke the new dam shovel this morning.
    Ran the backup gas out for the blower too.
    The tractor with the bucket is buried up past the front wheels and the fuel was only treated to 0.
    Can't watch the tv because the airel is shaking to much. Temps are set to break lows this week and on track to be one of the snowiest.

    THIS is why I bought a new snowblower this year! Of course we still got snow but it was never enough to break her out.

    Buddy of mine put the plow on his truck last night saying the same thing. I stopped by Lowes to get a new snow shovel to try and push the "no snow" karma ...they didn't have any out.

    Looks like Mother Nature is showing us that the last day of winter is STILL winter !

    I got ten inches of fresh snow between late last night and about 8:30 AM this morning. In addition, the forecast calls for lake effect tonight and into Thursday. Which means maybe another foot on top of what I got last night. I blame myself as I put my snowmobile away for the season last week and I'm sure that's the cause of this mid March storm. Oh well, it's good for the water table and will also extend the maple syrup season an additional week or two with a little luck. Two positives in my opinion....

    No point in even preheating that plane engine in those temps.

    Well, the neighbor ran his tractor into the ditch along one side of his driveway. So being a good critter I finished his driveway so he can get behind it and pull it down the grade instead of up the grade with a strap and hitch when he gets home from work.

    Having my second cup of coffee and then out to tend the chickens now that I can get to them.
