    And I'd probably be setting up on an outdoor range in a heatwave like that.

    If you guys want to experience a REAL winter, come on up to MinneSNOWta.

    Why, it was a balmy -5°F yesterday morning! :D

    (On the bright side, the days start getting longer from today. Summer's just round the corner...)

    Would LUV to visit the very frigid North (and Northwest); but I'm afraid I
    wouldn't come back to either the Marvel City, or the Majic City for that
    matter~!:eek: I would just send for my bunk and junk.:D

    Ahhh. There's nothing like NYC in winter during a transit strike when you arrive in Penn Station at West 32nd Street and have to walk to work on East 61st Street.:D

    This thread, and the two and a half feet of snow in my yard, tempts me to quote the poet Ezra Pound on winter.
    But Art's Grandma wouldn't like it.


    Pound may have been a traitor and madman, as well as a poet, but he was on target about winter, IMO.

    It has snowed here in central Oklahoma every day for the past 3 days. Now - on the very 1st day of WINTER - we have blue skies and an expected high of 52*.

    Just goes to prove the old saying about the weather in OK which is Don't like the weather - wait a few hours - it'll change. :D

    Yeah, but look on the bright side....next week when it's 35 degrees, it will feel like spring.

    I dunno how cold it is, but I know we probably haven't seen above freezing for the past month.

    Throw in a couple feet of snow, and we are in weather I like :)

    Just gotta make sure the M1 and SKS get degreased before I go out shooting, seems the grease don't work well at 0F.

    When it hits 40 degrees, I'm going to be outside jumping for joy! Yesterday it was -15 degrees with the wind chill when I walked into work from my car....I hate this weather!!!

    Sorry for the wrong numbers posted for yesterday's high. I was off by 4 degrees.

    We reached a high of 78 yesterday. Suppose to be a couple of degree's warmer today.:neener:
