    Thermometer reads -37C, with a brisk wind outside :S That means it feels colder than -40F, for all you +40F complainers :P

    It was only -15C this morning, so I was out clearing the foot of snow we got last night with my dad's 06 500 Rubicon Canadian Trail Edition, left it on the driveway when I finished, and just remembered it. Went to go start it, and the stupid thing won't so much as even sputter...

    Killed the battery, so I went and got my 96 400 Foreman, slid the choke over, and hit the starter button, crazy thing fired up on the first crank like normal, connecting rod hammering away like normal, and drug that sorry 06 back into the shop with it! :bow: Lit a fire in the boiler to warm the two suckers, and my truck + bobcat up for tommorow, got lots of snow clearing to do!

    I would be perfectly OK with NEVER personally experiencing -37 degree weather. :shocked: It's 59F here right now. :cool1:

    shutup, i don't want to hear it. Its going to be in the teens here for the next few days, and i think even single digits this weekend. I remember the winters in Texas as i was growing up, being able to go to school in shorts.

    I'd rather deal with a cold winter than a hot summer. I've experienced the Texas 115+ degree, full sun, high humidity thing. No thanks.

    Yep 63 here as well, I love our weather... It's kinda random, it has snown in April before... I guess our winter doesn't really start until now, but consider yourself lucky to see snow once every 5 years here in South Mississippi.

    I like the weather here in Ohio. Sure it's cold in the winter but I don't mind. Our summers our the best, not too hot.

    Not cold yet!

    It's 43* here today, it was 72* last Saturday I still can't believe that one. Still the warmest "winter" I can remember in the northeast. I'm afraid it won't last,even though it just don't feel right.

    near "normal"???

    We got a few cold days the past few--fell to 20 degrees last few nights!..after being spoiled with temps in the 50's and 60's since december began--it feels FRIGID!..but actually we are still a bit "above normal"--its 50 outside now,tomorrow is supposed to be 50 with rain..but next week the "Montreal Express" moves south and invades us,so it looks like the warm winter is about over..I'd not be suprised if we get a few blizzards this winter,after a nearly snow free one last year..

    I have a lot of work to do on my truck,and need to beef up my firewood supply too I guess...:doah: :(
