It finally got up to around 30 today. I passed a guy that had more than 4 Elk hooves sticking out of the side of his pickup.

That PLACE is beautiful. Boy back in the 1970s in my HIGH skiing days; I would have LOVED it! What the heck is fifty (50) years?

How's my weather? Feels seasonal. Currently in Sweden, upper 30s lower 40s. 4 rainy days then 2 sunny.
31, 30 nights, 35 days, little sunshine this far north. A few dustings of snow at night.
Found a car junkyard nearby where off a truck I was able to buy and get mounted a full set of aluminium rims mounted with snow tires for under $500. Removed the dinner table from the camper to store the summer set, so no back seats now...
Snow tires are mandatory in Sweden starting December 1st.

Closer to $350, actually. Pretty satisfied with my bargaining skills that day!

Well that makes it a FIVE STAR deal. Only thing better would be for him to pay you to take them. CONGRATS

We exceeded "Lightweights" status 2 weeks ago, in Coos Bay. Registered 50 MPH sustained & 110 MPH gusts Friday & Saturday nights around midnight & 2 am. Many areas without power & it did extensive damage all over the area.

We're anticipating that storm hitting us tonight. How'd you fare?

Florida is great with the Homesteading and taxes and whatnot but the weather can be hot garbage.
It's a handful of cold fronts. That's winter. Right now, we're waiting for the next cold front. It was 80 yesterday.

It's 80 today. :(
It's always 80.:(
The average temp over the entire YEAR is 80.:(

During the day, It's usually much higher than 80... Thankfully, it cools off at night!

At night, it cools down to 80...:(

Interesting, all the weather complaints.

I have nothing to complain about, in that vein...and that's why I'm complaining. This has been a warm winter...we had a dusting of snow on the ground from Wednesday night, and it's almost all gone. Temperature in the mid forties. No snow, no wet roads.

Why complain? Because...without a deep snowpack in the mountains...we're gonna have an hellacious forest-fire season next summer. Compleat with the television imbeciles trying to tie it in with Glow Bull Warming.

I just complain to pass the time. It's a good excuse to write. Actually winter is turning out great. We had a nice 40 degrees or so for Christmas. Its the perfect temp to curl up with a book, a dog, a smoke and some hot coffee. It's good front porch weather.

As a bonus, you get the entertainment of watching the long-time locals dress up like astronauts any time we dip below 75.

It has been a very mild winter here. First real cold snap just started.
Not complaining. I might have a good opportunity tomorrow to put my temperature display micro controller circuit to properly read a negative value.

lol, even though I know you're not joking judging by the frost pic you posted in the random pics thread. :)

No doubt people in FL are laughing too but I just make the best of it.
