^Very Nice frost. A little snow for X-Mas would be perfect.
Only rain & 45 degrees here.
In the back mountains though,they got some snow happening now.

I had snow back in November, but it'* been pretty mild since then. Today it was in the mid 40s, tomorrow might be near 50 and a lot of rain in the forecast. I am not complaining, but I would like some snow.

I made a plow light for atop the blade from an old Ford tractor headlight.







Should help when getting out at night or in the morning to move snow.

I like the Ford tractor plow light idea. Looks like it lights it up pretty good!
Question is when do you get to use it?
Where is all the snow this year?? Seems way warmer than normal in most areas.

I better get ready for a week+ of cold here.
I don't mind Yukon gold... but Yukon cold ...send it back!
By late Sunday the cold air/wind flows, with clear skies and 21F.
I think this weather is now

Forget the spring gear, time to dig out the gloves, heavier coat,toque & warmer boots! (oh ya & real warm Kodiac socks)
I'm going to use lock de-icer in gas cap a day in advance of the approaching cold front, and hope to get the lock open.
Where is our thumbs up icon wearing gloves at anyways...

so my daughters home today, they never cancel school here. even when its snowing buckets. but its snowing buckets and 20-30mph sustained winds and with the sub ten degree temps the wind chill is like minus 20. so they let them stay home for once.

im having lots of fun, a couple times last week woke up to super cold house. after messing around with it for a while i found the new motor/squirrel fan i bought last year so i wouldn't have any problems is bad already. they are shipping me a new one under warranty. thankfully i have a spare that kind of fits.

Snow..wow..I wish I had some to talk about. Nothing but rain was 51 yesterday.
Glad u had a spare fan to get the ducts warmed again. Awesome it was still under warranty!
How much snow are u suppose to get there Justin? Is it just going to be a one day event?
