    Total bust along coastal Rhode Island.Raining now, but flash freezing this afternoon. So much for the massive storm for us. Up North however, that is a different story.

    0.1 degrees this morning. Even the dog doesn't want to go out to pee this morning.

    I went out a few minutes ago to shovel the snow off if the back deck. After about 15 minutes I had enough. It's not too windy but it's just enough to cut through layers of clothing. It's currently at 6 degrees now.

    I did go plug in the truck a little while ago. I have a switch inside that I can turn on that circuit. It takes about 3 hours to bring the truck up to temp. I'll probably turn the switch on just before going to bed tonight so the truck will fire up easily in the morning. Supposed to hit below zero single digits tonight.

    Damn, I love Florida, heat humidity and all. But I keep repeating myself. Old age has crept up and gone on past me I guess.

    It's going to warm up quick today to just below freezing. They're now calling for freezing rain overnight through tomorrow morning. I'd really rather it just be cold than to have that happen. Prolonged freezing rain never produces anything positive.

    I'd be in there with you. LOL
    Only 60* here right now --- but the wind rattled the screens all night and is still howling. Thank goodness, it's NOT out of the North.

    Did the truck crank okay this morning? Any problems driving through that mess?

    Warmed up to 10 degrees. We're having a heat wave!

    Fired right up. Ironically, I had to take it into the Ford Garage for a recall on the engine block heater. I just got back. Roads are still slick from the weekend's snow. It's been too cold for the salt to work properly on our PA roads. Today's heat up will change that quick. Already up to 25 degrees.

    Yeah, the bottom air in the vid is scary and has pretty much no room for error or you will be eating rocks. The last time I hit it I rag dolled out of it with some bruised ribs.:lol2: Now I take the chute that's left from it and watch the young rippers hit it when it happens, and it's not often.:lol2: Can't make it to the mountain today, but plan on being there tomorrow to hit some out of bounds terrain that I'm guessing and hoping will be open tomorrow.

    I don't have to dodge rocks and trees while water skiing.

    Because I like water skiing as well, but nothing like the buzz I get on the slopes and the beauty of a bluebird day in the Sierras.:D

    The deep freeze is about to take over much of the north over the next few days.
