It appears that my Eastern/Mid West/Mid South friends are looking at some more than frigid temps and heavy snow. I’m hoping it doesn’t last much longer for all your sakes. I know from experience that it is no fun. Stay safe, warm, and perhaps a few hot toddies.

It is as cold as a witch's tit here in Charlotte. The ground in the yard is frozen rock-solid. The forecasts are for more of the same. Khakis don't cut it, I just ordered some flannel-lined denim pants, and dug some heavy sweaters out of storage. Luckily, I still have some down vests and jackets in the hall closet. Avery County, NC, where the mountain house stands, has a very rough week ahead ...minus zero and windy both.

The big New Year's eve party was cancelled due to black ice and it got down to 16 that night. We're supposed to get back above freezing tomorrow.

Minus 6 yesterday and minus 4 today. Too cold to take the dogs out hunting. We hope the pheasants don't migrate south.

We made it back above zero for the first time in just over a week today. If the warming trend continues, we'll see mid 20s by the weekend.

That'll have the girls back in shorts and dresses!

Odd how this cold works. Ed Laine posts about how Southerners whine, yet now he says it's so cold, he ordered new pants for it...and hes retired.

I didn't order special britches, was outside for part of day (because I work), and I didn't wear socks. Of course, I was a combat engineer, not an MP.

I do not, and cannot, excuse my oversight in missing the shabby comment of Mr. Gilmore regarding his understanding of the chill-resistance of male adults. Such resistance and impunity to the vagaries of temperature have no explanation to some - that alone, fully explains things.
Having been raised in the colder parts of North America, I became accustomed to the chills of winter early on.
Mr. Gilmore, being reared in the swamps and bogs of the southeastern United States just never faced the variations of the weather of that there "far North."
When the Georgia bog-hoppers feel the rare firmness of the swamps in winter....they try to grasp what is going on elsewhere...sadly, to no avail...bog-hoppers will always remain bog-hoppers...and they'll still "talk funny."

God talks with a Southern accent. Lucifer grew up on Long Island, took a Greyhound bus to East Tennessee, got his a$$ whipped, and went back to New York where he's served as Governor, as a Senator of both sexes, and is currently acting as both Senators, the governor and the Mayor of some pissant city with five or six boroughs and a lousy newspaper. It's so bad, Carnegie Deli closed. That can only be ascribed to Satan. God would never allow that.

Brad, you screwed up going south. It's going to be in the 50's here today and tomorrow. Riding the Harley to lunch today.
