Wow!! 41°!!
Thursday, here in Southern New Hampshire, we got up to almost 40°… briefly…
Snow here has been lacking though… We got our first snowfall earlier in the week, but it was just a dusting…
A Merry Christmas to You and Yours too, my Friend!! And all the Best in the New Year!!

Looks like you need an ice scraper, no waiting an hour for the ice to melt on you windshield. Here’s my solution to wood-working in the winter in cold Michigan: basement shop.

Merry Christmas everyone :-)

Brian, that was very well done and I enjoyed it. That’s a beautiful view from your back yard. I would be thrilled if I had a view of that mountain from my house. It’s been colder than normal for us over the last couple or 3 weeks here in North Georgia and we may have a wee bit of snow this weekend. We just don’t get an awful lot here except in the higher elevations, but it does get cold at times here in the winter. Have a wonderful Christmas Day. :)

Merry Christmas to you and yours. Having grown up in the Midwest, I always thought that not having a White Christmas would be a big rip off. Grilling in shorts is no substitute for Swedish meatballs, potato sausage, or eating Lutefisk and Lefse with Lingonberries while getting sunburn is not my ideal Christmas. Fortunately I’ve got my basement shop in Iowa (read heated) and ready to go with new toys from Santa and family to start work on new projects.

The best part is that my old, failed projects burning in the fireplace this morning to keep me warm :)

Merry Christmas from Michigan! It was a balmy 30deg morning, better than the single digits we’ve had lately. At least the cold temps kept the snow on the ground for a white Christmas!

Merry Christmas from N.W. Missouri. It’s around 18 here this afternoon. Good day to stay in and sit by the fire.

The other day in my garden, that night we had -16 degree Celsius = 3.2 degree Fahrenheit.
So yes it’s cold even in Copenhagen.

Loved your video.

Merry Christmas,

I’m in Georgia and today we got snow. It hasn’t snowed here on Christmas day since the early 1900’s.
We’ve had and unusally cold fall this year. What happened to global warming?
