Hey Rick,

Its 3 degrees here right now and very windy. Not sure what the wind chill is. The high for much of this week will be below zero….thats the high temperature.

I want to come to your place so I can wear shorts and a T shirt…ha ha ha.

How have you been? Hope all is well there.

Wayne….Now you know why I don’t live up North…lol…it’s windy here, too, and still 18….Man, your neck of the woods is too frosty for me….Some friends of ours lives in Min., and up in Maine….They all want to come live here….!!! They said expecting some snow, and below temps….Hope you got plenty of grub and wood if you burn it….I’ve been good, Wayne….Was busy making gifts for Christmas, but got them all done, and I’m loafing for awhile now….I thought you dropped off the map…..Stay warm, guys…It ain’t over yet…..More coming…

Supposed to drop down to the 20s by Wednesday or Thursday. I’d prefer to hold on to the 70s. :-)

It’s 70 and raining like there’s no tomorrow right now here in S.E. Ga. It’s supposed to blow over pretty soon, but I swear I just saw a big boat float past my house with a bunch of animals on the upper deck!

Here in Montana when it’s below zero, we get to fish and use hand tools at the same time. You have to drill or chop a hole in the ice first. LOL

Here in San Jose we had been in a very cold spell for this area, with below freezing temps overnight. Right now at 11:15 AM it is 50° and should reach 60° as a high today.

My shop is in my garage and my tools are just too cold to use until it gets to at least 60°!
