Good morning, everyone! First the ethyl is tasting very good this morning! I feel your pain, Frank, as it has been getting down to the low 50's here at night!! But has been warming up nicely in the day time! Had long pants on for the past 2 or 3 days!! And the mosquitoes have been fierce!! We all have our trial's, and I think I would like to see a hard freeze just to kill off those sucker's! The store is open air, so they still get in, and the elect. tennis racquet is get a workout!! Enjoy the Bowl Games, Gordon! Everyone stay warm! Terry, take care of that knee, and hope all goes well at the Dr.! Maybe a cortisone shot? Bap, relax , and smell the coffee, and hope everyone there is feeling better there! Rail!

Good morning to all my friends sweltering in the 50's. Carefull about the heat stroke, I heard it can be serious!!!

Right now it is -23. We had about 6" of snow yesterday. Thank goodness the neighbour came over with his skid steer and plowed the driveway. I was thinking about doing it but sitting on the open tractor would be brutal.

Another week before heading back to Yuma. Have to see the surgeon next week. Day before yesterday the temperature in Yuma was 1 degree warmer than here so no bonus. Temperature differential is widening so by the time we get back there will be a 70 degree improvement. Life is grand.

Good evening all.
Like you guys in the cold, waited many years in NE Ohio winters, with the cold and snow, we were about 3 miles south of the snow belt, so if the wind shifted slightly, we got hammered too. So I do feel for you guys, but I am loving every minute of the warmer climate. Do not plan on seeing snow again in person the rest of my lifetime, if I have anything to say about it.
Frank

Good morning everyone! The coffee is tasting very good this morning! I ran out of the decaf the other day, and will not miss it one bit!
I spent all of my life living in the middle of Illinois, had a Victorian farm house, called "Never Done Acre's"! So i have seen my fair share of snow! I also trucked all over the U.S. and went all over the north in the winter delivering slot machines to the casino's! Light loads and slick road's, what fun! I took a vacation to Thailand 3 years ago, met the woman of my dreams, and now live here full time! We visit the U.S. a couple times a year, and i am looking forward to them, as i get to do one of my second loves, MH'ng!
So , Yes, i enjoy living in the tropical climate of Thailand, and visiting the states when everything thaw's out! And like Frank, i hope to not see the snow again, but if i do, it will be my DW freaking out ,, not me!! Enjoy the snow, and just know, you do not have to itch the mosquito bites, like i am doing right now! Rail!

Good Morning All, Warmed up over night here, 43 degs as I type this, crazy winter this yr for sure, supposed to follow tonight and all next week with the coldest of the yr so far, Yuck. Gordon, I bet Yuma will feel very good after way below zero, Frank, Rail after many yrs of fighting ice and snow like you, I hope to join in warmer weather in the winter, if I never saw snow again it would not hurt my feelings. Have a great day All.

Went out to our motorcycle club breakfast meeting. Cold enough to make me reconsider but enjoy the group.

Checking the predicted highs of the day. Yuma will be 104F warmer than here.

God evening all,
Enjoyed the coffee this morning, nice and warm, but weather forecast turning not so nice later this week, supposed to go down below freezing for a low Wednesday evening. The good thing is that it only lasts a few short hours then warms up, next weekend highs are supposed to be in the mid seventies.
Gordon, I still hear Yuma calling you.
Terry, I hope to see you down here next winter, If you want, I can get you a nice site in the campgrounds that I am in, it has a waiting lit, but they take care of us that have been here.
Spritz, You need to load up and head to warmer weather too, Mn. is way too cold.
bap, not sure about you, lol. Take a vacation on the gulf shores, then disappear for weeks, and blame it on the computer. I just don't know.
Frank

Good Morning All, Colder here this morning, we have reached our high temp for the day and its 24* going down and getting some lake effect snow for a couple of days 2" maybe 3". Real trouble walking this am, hope it gets better as the day goes along. Bap, watch that ATV today it'll be ice to slide around not mud, hope all in the household is getting well some of those colds can linger on. Tim, when we had a repair shop I would go to Dunkin Donuts and get coffee and donuts for the guys in the shop, kinda miss that. Gordon, seems that there's just something wrong about going to a bike club meeting when its so cold outside, brrrrr. Rail, watch those mosquitos if they gang up I heard they can carry you off . Gotta get another cup of coffee, have a great day all.
