For some that is…. I noticed that the weather “changed” yesterday. It has been a nice cool one in Tejas for a while, but today in the shop I can tell it turned the corner for us, and it is about to get hot…. Gettin’ close for all of those who have been putting up with our “what heater in the shop… it’s 80 outside” comments to warm up and start laughing at us!! :)

Whaddya think southerners… was it our ground hog day this weekend??

Did it even freeze this winter in central Texas? I think I only had one month that I didn’t pour gas in my lawnmower.

Is it white….. because it’s frozen?!!!! :)

No offense taken, actually lmao, but what I am dreading is what is to come…. a mild winter like this means in a short while your turn will come, while we suffer through the 100’s

to the warm guys you can kiss my frost bitten butt. I drove to work (BP refinery) to find the last 10 miles were black ice. I am a union carpenter currently building scaffold. upon getting there I figured they would shut down the work at heights, but no such luck so up I went 100’ of stairs then 100’ of barrel ladders wearing my 50# tool rig/harness. Oh did I mention every thing was covered in ice and were finishing a hanger. for those who don’t know a hanger is a scaffold that has the back 2 legs clamped to anything solid and the front two are suspended over nothing. so we (3 man crew) spent the next 4 hours hand roping material to the top in the freezing rain. after lunch we started swinging. let me tell yua great day, NOT. here is a clip of some thing a little smaller and a lot lower than what were building today but with Ice.

Joey, we had it much worse than you did down in Austin.
We are about 100 miles north and I actually had some mud puddles freeze for a couple of hours in December.

Had to turn on the A/C today in the house.

It also looks like we lost a couple more trees, maybe some elms, oaks and a Pecan. I might be getting some more logs to mill! Whee!

Mild winters = more drought
More drought = higher food prices
Higher food prices = less money for wood and tools
Less money for wood and tools = more unhappy Southern woodworkers

No unhappy Southern woodworkers. We’re signed up for “Obama Boards”

No freezing weather for me in the Houston area. Might have got down to about 33 but I think the weather liars…well, lied! :-)

Gotta go watch the grandkids play ball tomorrow. Opening day games…high about 80ish.
