LOL..Got 10 years on you at 58...Its rainy and dreary here and supposed to turn to snow early day break and snow all day..maybe 9in..some sleet too. I like you am ready for Spring. We havent had all that much snow but the temps have been pretty low..Rough on the animals. I have goats/chickens/rabbits as a hobby. Plus a cat and some dogs. Mini farm. LOL..Goats will kid anytime soon so I would like to see warmer milder temps.

Getting -2 right now and I'm not sure how much snow we have other than a lot and it seems to be non stop. More ice on the lakes than I've seen in years.

Thats cold for sure. We got down to zero and maybe wind chill got us in the minus range but thats cold!
Do you ever get use to it? I cant imagine trying to keep cars running and pipes not freezing but I guess you prepare for it ahead of time.

We did have the pipes freeze up once a couple weeks ago when it was -18 (wind chill -30s) but only briefly. Only problem we've had with the cars is when the girlfriend left the lights on.

She's always doing that stuff. Warmed up the van one night and ended up not going anywhere. She forgot she had started it and it cost us a half tank of gas! laugh.gif

laugh.gif That is one that mine has not done yet. I got a big chuckle out of that.
Mine is mainly leaving things on or the forever locking the keys in the car. I have hidden a spare just for those occassions.
