  • Looks like we might be coming to the end of this cold spell for VA. I can't remember ever being out working in weather this cold. Thankfully we only got about an inch of snow out of the storm that came thru. It sure hasn't done much melting when afternoon temps don't get out of the 20s. The 2N is my wood hauler this year, and has started right up every time with no block heater or other aids, even with temps below 20 deg.

  • Here in Northwest NJ we got about 4" maybe 5". Took the '40 out with the 8' blade and did the driveway. Cold. My son told me he wore shorts and a tank top to work yesterday. He's in southern Fla and likes to rub it in.

  • I haven't been able to get out to measure but it appears to be about 6in. of fluf.It is pretty and my Lab that has never seen snow is having a field day in it.My son is coming over to water and feed my Lab and clean/ice the steps for us so we're good to go.For a month and half I've been having many test and bio opsey and have lung cancer so the cold weather doesn't fit in with my activities which are now mostly inside.Three months back I didn't know but "all was well".Now my world seems upside down.At 80yrs. this is just a bump in the road.I'm pressing on.

  • I am 80 and just got out of the hospital as almost bled out. Clotting factor very low due to leukemia. Will be getting back on chemo when strength comes back. I fell for you Charles. I pray you that your health will return and you will gain back the years that the enemy has tried to steal.

  • I feel sorry for you guys getting snow, ice and sleet when your not used to it. I'm sure your road crews are not equipped like ours in Indiana. Ice is worse than snow. I'm in north east Indiana and we have around 5 inches on the ground. Keep getting those inch snows I call pain in the XXX snows. Not to far from here in north western Indiana they have a good foot on the ground and another 10 inches or so on the way. Those areas are equipped to handle it though. Keep warm and keep safe. Stay in off those dangerous roads unless you have to go out.

  • It's been in th e single digits here in W. KY for three or four days in a row. Monday and Tuesday I made a half-hearted attempts to start my 2N. Nope. Usually, it sleeps in the shop when it get this cold. Not this year though. Yesterday at 20 something degrees, it fired right up and I moved it in. On a side note, SWMBO and I are raising three of her grandchildren (5, 7 and 9). Monday and Tuesday, I bundled them up, and took them down to the creek. It was so cool. Three inches of crystal clear ice. We could count every pebble on the bottom and watch fish swim around. Amazing and rare here.

  • This weather is crazy. Been in single digits here 3 days in a row. It actually made it to 32 today for a very short time. Snow on the way and more single digits for the rest of the week. We are not used to this mutch cold. Lakes and rivers are freezing over. It is a rare day in Va when it stays below freezing all day for several days.

  • Re: Weather !
  • That black ice is the worse! Probably the body shops will be getting lots of work. I'm still a kid at heart and still like driving snow and even ice. BUT NOT BLACK ICE!

  • Re: Weather !
  • I agree 100% about black ice. Years ago I was in Oklahoma City on business and trying to go to the airport. I never touched the gas or brake, just used drive and neutral. We had to stop at an intersection. No sense touching the brakes, I was slow enough to coast to a stop. Just the crown of the road caused the stopped car to slide about 8 feet sideways to the curb.

  • Re: Weather !
  • We were joking at McD this morning about some of the snowbirds in Florida that we know getting some "white stuff" today. Certainly has to be weird for some of nature's creatures.

  • Re: Weather !
  • Weather here is a joke this week and a bad one at that! Was watching the noon news and they showed driving on snowy streets in Lake City about 120 miles NW. It was at that time 52 degrees here. Rain quit, temp fell and now it's 46 at 6pm. Getting colder and freeze is likely. They say this junk may stay for a week or more, have not had snow here since 1977 and sure was hard to find it! Sure hope we don't get any.
