The dedicated joggers & walkers are out in the single digit weather but the birds & varment are all laying low.  Me, I am waiting for better weather.

After several days of a hard freeze, we have thawed out in Central Texas. Still a bit colder than normal for us.

Now that tick season is over (they truly are spawn of the devil) I usually take the dogs for a romp through the fields about this time of day. I skipped yesterday but they're pestering me to go so I'm about ready to put on my Carharts, scarf, hat, and mittens, grab my walking stick,  and give it a go. Temps not too bad, about +12 F but the wind will be a bitch................Bob

Yes raining, but it's the first rain we've seen in Seattle in a week. It's been cold though, with nighttime temps around freezing, and daytime temps in the low 40's. People around here start complaining when it gets to be, around, freezing. Around here, we hate to scrape out windshields, and snow, forget about it!

Our politics, taxes, court system and gun laws may suck, but it's 81 degrees here in Palm Springs today!  :lol:

You worry too much. Go with the flow. Had a really nice romp with the dogs today. Freezing one's ass off has the benefit of coming in to a house warmed by a bright burning wood stove and a finger or two of blackberry brandy nothing short of sublime............Bob

Long Island NY, 12" to 18" of snow on the ground and about 8 degrees. Not a roadster day, in fact not a day for any driving. When my son was living in Whittier CA they would bitch about rain. Poor babies!

 

I'm with you on this overcrowded island not much fun!

-1 here today.  That's suppose to be the high as well.  Found out the block heater in the tractor isn't working and of course it's not the cord.  Fortunately we only have 2 fresh inches on the ground over the rest of the snow and ice,  so I'll just wait until it warms up first part of the week to plow.  It's inside but the garage is probably 0 at best that it's in.

I bet my boiler just created more pollution during this cold spell than all my old cars have in the last 10 years. 

I can't help but wonder why they never mention the carbon footprint of the forest fires out west and the operations to quell them when relating to all the CO2 hub Bub, but constantly complain about all the pollution caused by our old antiquated cars that are driven in many instances less than 500 miles a year.  I won 6 I think.  My dad drove my Olds last year probably 200 miles,  I drove my 47 Hudson maybe 500-700.  So  less than 900 miles on 6 cars.  Works out to 150 miles per car.  I bet many members would fall in similar categories if you consider the total number of cars you own, which is the ones they complain about.  Even the static ones that haven't seen the road in 20-30 years.

It has been right around 2 degrees since yesterday afternoon. Below average, but nuthin' to write home about. Another day in the neighborhood.

We don't have a basement, it is a cellar. If it is really hot in the summer I will sit down there in a folding chair if there is no breeze on the porch. Today it must be nice and warm by the furnace, The chair is there folded up and leaning against that '62 Dynaflow transmission. I just looked up on the bookshelf above me. I see Hydronic System Design and Operation  and a copy of Blessed Be The Cynical. Maybe I will take both books down, unfold the chair, and put my feet up on that tailshaft. Could be inspired to install one of those high efficiency boilers that never meet anyone's expectations.

Yesterday was not particularly hot here,  about 25 oC, felt like a bit warmer (27 oC, 80 oF). But it was really humid, c. 90% much of the day, falling into the evening.

I have to keep out of the sun so I wear full covering - overalls (white are cooler than dark green or blue), hat, gloves. It was sweltering in that lot trying to do things in orchard in the sun. Our UV index at the moment is in the extreme range, c. 11.3 max.  uvi_forecast_tauranga.png so everyone should be protected anyway.

Not "warm" at all.  Not "warm" in the Chicago-Metro / Northwest Indiana region.

It’s 67 degrees and sunny. I took the V-16 Caddy and the Stutz for a spin today. Life is good. Drive them like you stole them!
