We got hit by the first significant snow of the season. This morning it was down to 19 degrees. The ground isn't even frozen enough for proper snow plowing.

It was supposed to be warm and windy today, but there was no wind. That was lucky for me because I was able to strap on the leaf blower and clean the hell out of the yard. One less chore in the spring for me, very nice surprise!

At the spinalcracker, she blew like a mofo s of hiway 50. Highest gust ive heard was 111 at kim Colorado. We got power back after 6 hours because we are on a Ks leg being close to state border. There is some rural areas s of the ark river probably wont have power for days. it rolled thru here like a big dog. That was quite a low pressure system. From what I can tell everything I have is in tact. I have a fuel tank on stand I just traded for, havent filled it yet, the fucking thing is tipped over my cow fence and laying in the pasture. I will mess with it in the morn. I have an idea there is alot of messed up stuff round the countryside. I have to go tomorrow and check our center pivots, we are still watering HRW, becuase it wont rain.

It was great when the power went out, kind of reminded me of the old days when I was poor. No electric stuff noise. When I could get the kid (14yo) to shut up, it was surreal.

:2 thumbs up:

All and all a pretty good day really. I smoked a pile of scizzor hash. I am a big observer and fan of fucked up weather (what you gonna do nigga?), as long as it doesnt wreck my shit.

It was a big dirt storm, it kicked ass. Dark as late dusk for a few hours. You fellers out east better get ready, its the real deal. Put your grill and you lawn chairs in the garage. I wonder how many cows will get dust pneumonia?

LOL

72* is perfect at night for grilling chicken and drinking apple moonshine.

So cold out tonight I'm thinking of bringing the fire in to warm it up.

You guys who have never had your wheels freeze up are missing the good life. LOL

I am not a sadist, but giving you an opportunity to feel warm vicariously. The water is warm enough to go swimming. It's not chilly, but the wind at night feels cooler than the posted 74* while standing in the ocean.

The warmest it's ever been.

In 130 years of record keeping. How many millennia has Earf been Earf?

Records are always shifting. Land masses shift, thermal currents shift; the Sun changes in intensity and with its cycles. Greenland isn't green...now. It's frozen. But when named, it was green. Vintner's grapes were grown outside Londinium.

Then came the Fall of Rome...and Global Cooling. Co-winky-dink? Perhaps not.

So, I won't get panicked. I grew up in the 1960s and 1970s...the late 1960s were HOT. Triple-digit temperatures in Cleveland....which helped make air-conditioning of private homes a reality. We had, in the Great Lakes, about seven years of minimal winter snow. Since the area is not dependent on melting snowpack for water, it wasn't a crisis - only disconcerting. Plenty of rain to make up for it.

But winter-sports suffered. Snowmobiles had just become a novelty consumer purchase - and they sat in garages. Ski slope operators in New York State were going bust. Deer seasons were harder, because there was little snow to track deer with.

That ended, as these things do, sometimes, dramatically - the Blizzard of 1977. Marking the start of ten years of much-more typical winters.

We were told by the great weather guesstimater's that we would have a white Christmas. They said 97% sure.
For today it was 86% for sure.
We got zero snow yesterday & a foot this morning.

But they know FER SURE that we're all gonna die of Glow Bull Warming...and that trading Carbon Credits with AlGore's clearing house...AND denying you natural gas, gasoline, fuel oil, a warm house, air conditioning or meat...is gonna prevent that Glow Bull Warming.

12 degrees ATM, going to get cold tonight. Last I checked around noon there was 22" of snow on the back deck. Power has been off and on through out the last 2 days (filled the tub full of water just in case). Two snow plows went in the ditch about 5 miles east of my place. Venomous spewing guard ducks aren't very happy about it. Jesse, the ever shedding couch dweller, has put a hold on her squirrel chasing activities for the time being.

Cause they can walk on water??? It does leave them pretty susceptible to predators though.

Nice place

Weather wise it is fine. I moved down here to get away from the Libs in NJ only to find myself in a similar situation.

"They" lied again. It is warmer today than when I posted about what the temps were to do today. It's only -17F out side with no wind, feels almost balmy.

The temperature is never the same and will not be until we all live under glass domes.

When temperatures were warmer in the 19th century there was no Climate Change religion. They simply called it summer.

So -43F is what it takes for you to feel cold?
