You should move to Alaska... to warm up.When this month ends, we will have had 20 days in Feb with a below 0 reading, there have already been 16 days below zero as of yesterday, with four more days forecast through Sunday to be below zero for a low temperature.
The municipal water lines are freezing/breaking in random spots in the city of Watertown; the city manager stated the frost is 5 feet deep right now.
I rode 155 glorious snowmobile miles yesterday, +4 with wind at our 10 AM departure, but it was sunny and great! Went to the Hideaway, and GASP: the fire was not going in the bar dining room!! WTF? And it was a little cool in there, too, only in the 60's. But I did have Poutine for lunch, so that balanced out the lack of fire!
Oh, and I don't really like mowing the lawn very much at all.
No kidding . . . I've been looking at pics up there from the Iron Dog Race . . . all I can say is that it looks like they would have been better off racing ATVs and jet skis on the terrain there right now than snowmobiles. Lots of dirt, snirt and water . . .You should move to Alaska... to warm up.

The "Snirt Run" is the biggest fundraising event of the year for the local snowmobile club. It's an ATV poker run in April -- most recent years have been almost all snow.Snirt = a combination of snow and dirt, typically seen when riding the snowmobile in March when the spring thaw has started
Oh yeah, I am enjoying this one with full knowledge that the tide can turn on us. It was only awhile back that I spent 24 hrs in SeaTac airport due to 3 back to back snowstorms. In the meantime I just planted broccoli outdoors and will be transplanting cucumber and tomato starts in the greenhouse. I am ready for spring. I hope things warm up very soon back east too. Time for winter to move on.BG - We had a winter like that in 2010 I believe. strangest darn thing - really almost no winter tall and I started mowing in February and never stopped until the following fall. Warm winters do wonders for the 3+yr plan.
Of course they are offset by a winter like we had last year with 60 days in a row with below zero low temps and record snowfall - kind of reeks havoc on the 3yr plan.
Yeah... what he said.Here we have snice. Four inches of snow, covered with eight inches of snow packed down to four inches of snice by all night sleet.
