Finally some snow in Holland, usually we have at most 5 times snow a year. For americans and canadians peanuts, in Holland everybody panics with 4'' snow :D :D  
Now we have a week eastern wind with temperatures -5 to -15 °Celcius (5 to 20 °F), so the snow will stay for a week or so. Usually it dissapears within a day... 
Yesterday some snow removal with the Holder

Wish we had real winters over here!

Your climate changed a lot since WWII over there. When the war was ragging over there it was plenty cold and a lot of snow on the ground. Of course not as cold as Russia, but different than these days. Anyone over there born before 1920 will tell ya, but most of them are all dead from age. You're just a young pup, those old guys would be your great grandfathers. :D My grandfathers were born 1897 and 1908. Here's one of my grandfathers cleaning off the camp.

Yes it looks like. My grandparents always told that they could ice skate every year, they showed me pictures of the snowbanks and even the salt waters were frozen. Especially during WWII they had some bad winters. 
Unfortunately winters are too hot last years... Still hoping for a small ice age like they had in the 18th, 19th century  ;D

12 now and going to the 20s. The same 2in that Swamp and Ray got. A chance for another little  bit tomorrow, then again late week and the weekend. February definitely got more active than January was but it's mostly going south and east of me
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

If nothing else I'm always a good last resort or the guy to hold up as a bad example

-14° actual temp windchill -29°. More snow and a lot more drifting overnight. I don't mind winter too much, but I hate this kind of weather.

The temp bottomed out at 9° overnight and the skies cleared. This morning it is a crisp 12° with bright blue skies, no wind and a deluge of sunshine! What a beautiful day, and the birds are singing, the rabbits are hopping around (apparently one rested for a while right outside my shop door early this morning). If for no other reason than the sun I will enjoy this day greatly. They are calling for another 3-6 tomorrow, then more snow on Thursday, I guess we are on the normal February track. If it's gonna snow, I just hope it stays cold.
 I am pleased the shop temps seem to be holding up. It was 51 in the when I stoked the stove this morning and I have had little problem getting it up to 60 in short order for the last couple of weeks, except for a day or two with high winds.
 Time to get at it!

Cold, blustery with blowing snow that fell yesterday.
Back down to zero tonight, throw another log on !  That Oak I set aside earlier
has been coming in handy lately, almost twice the BTUs of some of 
my softwood.

I put in 3 small sticks of maple and a bunch of aspen in on top. Well........the windows opened up. A little too much for 24F weather. ;D

Sun is out now. :) Some wind though.

Looks like 6F here also and looks like a sunny day coming. Built a fire at 4:00 am, but probably won't need a fire until 7:00 pm again with the sun out. :) Was 85F from solar heat yesterday, window was open for awhile. :D

Man, that is downright chilly! (Now you know how MM feels when it gets down to 20. ;D :D )
 A balmy 18 degrees here this morning just beginning it's upswing, calm to 2 MPH winds out of the e-ne and beginning to pick up also. Pressure is at 30.26 and falling. A fine steady and persistent snow is falling and we just have about 1/2" on the ground. Very light and fluffy.

The temp forecast for the midwest to Rockies looks brutal in the coming days and nights.
Batten down the hatches, 0 doesn't seems so bad after looking at that.

That solar heating can be tricky at times, especially as the sun gets higher in the sky and stronger.
Can go from 70 to 80 inside pretty quick . And if you have the stove going because of a predicted cloudy
day and the sun pops out for a couple hours its down to a t shirt.
Been playing this game for 30 years but no complaints, easy enough to open a door or window for some fresh air.
Like having some softwood to burn for that reason, burns quick and no coals to keep the stove heating all day.

Clear, sunny and -19C (0F) this morning. That is DanG cold for here! Not much snow so pipes may freeze. My buddy's logging truck refused to get out of bed even with the heater. A pot of coffee then will see if my diesel will start, no place to plug it in.
