 -20 is nasty, at -40 the only thing to do is throw more wood in the fire.  Steve

I was working in the back pulling boards and sure as all hell, I had to kill a small copperhead. :o Guess that is what 72F does at this time of the year. Back in the freezer later tonight. >:( Winter needs to just stop. ;D

When it's -40 don't matter which on the temp scale. C and F are just about the same. We just got over that,but we had nothing that cold in my area. On the high side of 40° here now. That is warm at this time of year and at 7 at night too.  :o

Good job fish - those small ones are the worst.  I am good for at least one a year, most it's two or three.
