    I did. I need more ice to fish on. A lot melted at 60::Fyesterday.

    Bluebirds came through at work today and checked my nesting box that I have up. They are screwed.

    I'm sorry, Chief......BB is right, it was me.....
    I cant help it, I need it for maple syrup season here in a couple of weeks........
    But on a serious note, WOW what a dramatic shift! Same thing here, went to bed last night it was in the upper 40's and pouring rain, woke up to almost an inch of snow on the ground and 30°. Sitting around low 20's now and lotsa wind.

    A huge ash tree fell on my buddy's truck, job trailer, and the corner of his barn last night at 2:30am. Luckily, nobody got hurt.

    Can't he just go up north and sap some trees for a couple months instead of bringing this curse down on all the rest of us? ;lol

    actually that wood MAY end up in my stacks.....I told him if he wants it cleaned up to call me, he's deciding what he's going to do. He doesn't heat with wood.

    I cannot tell a lie . . . it was me as well.

    1. I'm going on vacation in a few weeks and if I'm going to pay to go somewhere warm, by golly I want to leave an area that is miserably cold so I can feel as though I'm getting my money's worth.

    2. I was hoping to get at least one more snowmobile ride in this year . . . although right now we need the cold AND a lot more snow since it looks pretty barren out there.

    It was -26.7 ::Factual temp this morning with just a light breeze.
    Schools were on time and on schedule with no delays.
    Today I am getting the cord fixed to the block heater, found out yesterday that it wasn't working properly causing some starting issues.

    Well, so far, it looks like a bunch of yahoos to blame. ::-) Hope you are all happy. Low of 6::F here last night and the same predicted for tonight. If I have to go out for a structure fire Jake, I am going to come looking for you. :mad: The rescue in that wind and cold yesterday wasn't much fun either. But that's ok, you just go sit in the sun where it is warm.

    - 14 this morning with no windchill. They are calling for 6-12 inches of snow from Friday - Saturday, last time they called for snow we never received the 6-8 they called for.

    Well, good luck Zap, It sounds like it could be rough if you get it all. I won't worry too much, 'cause I know you are ready.;)

    I would actually like more snow so we can do some cross country skiing again. We'll get some wood in before it hits on Friday.

    Even though it's cold out the February sun feels nice, looks like we have this winter beat! !!!
