    People don't drive well around here any time of year so it's hard to tell, but what I don't get is how every year and with almost every big-ish storm stores run out of snow shovels. We get snow every winter and I've kept the same shovel for years. What gives? Maybe people throw theirs out in frustration at the end of the season, that I could understand.

    btw I'm working in my nice and toasty darkroom today, jealous?

    Yeah I'm really losing it here. This winter has been totally relentless so far and the freezing is just too much. Maybe I'm too old, but -40? Seriously? I'm about ready to light myself on fire to keep warm.

    Michael R, as I look at a map of Canada, you're "way down south". There's a whole lot of Canada above you. Wonder if anybody lives up there. That has got to be some kind of cold way up there. I don't even want to imagine it. It's 31F here right now and I'm shoving wood in the stove as fast as I can haul it in the house, and I'm about to freeze. More power to ya, buddy.

    I'm working on a move to Portland OR to, among other things, get warmer than CO.

    Normally it is colder up north, but that's assuming the temperatures were normal in the southern regions. This ain't normal by a long shot. Once you get this kind of sick cold snap (-40 F/C) all bets are off as far as latitude being related to temperature. My guess is it isn't much colder way up north. There might even be places up there that are warmer than it is here.

    This winter is brutal, and not only in Canada. It's fierce in parts of the states too. Just overheard something on the news about wind chills of -50 somewhere in the U.S.

    Damn global warming ain't working.

    Looks like we are going to get a bunch of wind and storms over the weekend from N.America thanks to the jet stream. Thankfully, it appears to be looping well south over the Atlantic before heading north to the UK. This will bring the air temperature up so we won't be freezing our nuts off.

    I'm glad I cut off the propane company last winter. To heck with burning up that kind of money. Of course with a decision like that I made a bunch of work for myself. I would have never believed then that I could swing a 12 pound maul with as much force as I can now. POP!, and those 2 pieces of log as big as Jackie Gleason go flying apart like I lit dynamite under them. Everybody ought to spend a few winters living by the saw and ax. It's downright good for you; heals what ails you. OK people, keep warm.
