Miserable Cold
« on: December 27, 2017, 09:20:51 pm »
It was 17 degrees when I rolled in at midnight last night.  9 hours earlier in Baton Rouge I left in the mid 50's.  22 degrees right now...methinks I came home a couple of months too soon.

Global warming.....BRING IT ON!

Saturday through Monday it's supposed to get down below zero at night in my part of Michigan. The good news is that it's unlikely to snow the rest of this week and all of next week.

We've gotten into the high 30's before dawn here the last few days. By noon it's up in the mid 70's, so it isn't too bad.

The global warming gang are all in titters   because they predicted lessening snowfalls. 

I'm at Amelia Island for the week.  Not great beach weather, 50s with strong northerly winds.  But it beats sub freezing back home.

Maybe next year I'll do Key West instead on N FL.

Frank:  How much snow do you have?  I'm kinda afraid to ask but I hear in some places it's a fearsome amount.

Bill:  You are bragging. 

Alf:  You are bragging too.

I'll just say I'm on Oahu and leave it at that, OK?

24 right now, just waiting on the liquid rock truck, 200 degree water and exlerator, might be able too finish it at 4 pm lol, then underneath  the burlap  and steam blankets,pumping in steam all night.  Might be hard enough too build on in 2 months.
