It was 30 here this morning, with one more day in the 30s before it gets back to normal. Mid 50's during the day. At least 20 degrees below normal.

Point BABS south and drive fast. There is no other answer. It is just nuts how much snow has fallen all over the country. We're from upstate NY and got out just in time last year. We are now Florida residents and will be here each fall and winter.

In Wisconsin that is known as NICE WEATHER!

Speaking of weather, I heard a rumor that the wind stopped blowing in Kansas, (maybe Nebraska?), and EVERYTHING FELL OVER.

How many methods are there to winterize?
I know of 3 so far:
1. The pink method
2. The air method
3. The "S" method

It's real tough finding a place where it's warm and we can't drive to that island out in the South Pacific.

I guess someone had to say it...

Rumors of global warming seem to be just that!

For those of you that are interested...the global air and ocean temperatures are now the highest they have been since records began. All that extra heat and moisture in the atmosphere is causing the jet stream to go crazy. (The jet stream is a high altitude 'river' of very strong winds, essentially caused by the difference in temperature and moisture betweens the Arctic and the tropics). Weather systems for most of North America are guided by the jet stream.

Think of a garden hose if you don't hold onto it near the nozzle...it will wiggle all over the place. That is what is happening to the jet stream, so everyone gets erratic and extreme weather. Global warming isn't about warming where you are, but about warming of the planet. Locally, expect more extremes...droughts, floods, blizzards, hail, you name it. Welcome to the future.

Strap electric snow blowers to the front and plug them in to the generator. Now you can go shopping. Lol

If you run her in the salt, make sure you keep her belly washed.

Although I'm all for taking care of our planet and doing what we can to protect it. Since time has been recorded there has always been weather extremes, which all the Global Warming worriers can't really explain. I remember as a kid growing up the week between Christmas and New Years, we had both freezing and 90+ degree weather in the same week, and that was over 45 years ago. Can't mess with Mother Nature and I think if you watch the World News we have alot more to worry about than global warming taking away our future.

If what was in the coach's garage wasn't my new kitchen cabinets, Babs would be snuggled up for the winter. I think we're getting to a point to at least bring the cabs into the house. Installation is a ways off though.

Hopefully, that's the last snow she'll have to endure.

There is one more. The V method.

For years now I have used the cheapest vodka I can buy and pumped it through the pipes. No taste. It sterilizes. It won't freeze. You can party in the Spring.
