    He likes to play in it for a little while but doesn't like to do his business in the snow until I shovel out a spot so he can see grass lol...

    Leaving work at noon today, have to get ready for this winter storm approaching...Getting stocked on propane, gasoline, food, and water today and tomorrow as the storm will begin in the early hours Sunday morning...Last time we had an ice storm like this one forecast we lost power for a week and couldn't drive on the roads for 3 or 4 days...Setting up my generator tomorrow morning and going to run it for a few hours to make sure its good to go...

    We have been experiencing Chinook weather all week. It has been 0 and above and will remain that way until Monday when we plummet back to -27C.

    It is a cute video and made me smile throughout, but I don't understand the pie reference?

    5 degrees F out there and the wind is screaming. Weather says wind chill is -10F and I'd believe it. Took the dog out and I think my testicles retreated up into my armpits. Brrrrrrrrrr........ she didn't take long, for sure

    I'm ready for this winter storm, I ran the generator for an hour this morning, its good to go, and have 10 gallons of gasoline on hand for that and have 120lbs of propane for the propane heaters, 10 gallons of water and plenty of food...They're calling for more ice than snow in my area which will likely kill the grid power...Not going to work on Monday, the boss already told everyone to not come to work on Monday...The roads will likely be too icy and dangerous to drive early on Monday morning so he's keeping the business closed Monday...

    Just want to make it clear that when I used the "awesome" for the last 2 post you put here it was because I found them both to be extremely amusing, not because because your testicles retreating to your armpits was particularly awesome. :lol:

    We got maybe 3-4" of snow and now it's raining, supposed to be all done by noon. Very warm now at 34. Yesterday morning same time it was -3.

    I'm sitting this one out today. I could have got to work this morning but just didn't have the energy to deal with it just to get someplace and have little to do.

    Hope you're hunkered down OK @nivek

    Been shoveling snow, it's melting a bit today with temps just above freezing, we never lost power but I was ready if we did...I was out in my workshop yesterday afternoon when the ice started coming down heavy, sounded like hail hitting the metal roof lol...

    34 degrees is not warm to me, maybe for Eskimos lol, it's hard for me to accumulate to colder weather, I wouldn't do well in an ice age...

    We're bouncing from mid 30s down to below zero again. More snow tomorrow.

    Entropy hit my snow thrower; the chute angle control broke. Plastic thingus broke. Fifteen bucks and I'll have it by Tuesday. Not the end of the world and cool that I can still get parts for a machine that has to be 20+ years old

    Long, long ago, I attended college in Binghamton, NY. The most notable thing about the weather was that snow would fall just prior to Thanksgiving, and would remain on the ground almost continuously until into the spring. Also notable, was how the locals took it in stride. There were no disruptions that I could notice.
