Winter is here.
« on: October 22, 2007, 10:30:26 AM »
55 degrees. Wet. Cold. Raining. Cold. Humid. Cold. Moist. Cold feet. Depression. Cold.

Red has the same opinion of this weather as I do.


I am supposed to be building pallets but I just woke up from a powernap on the shop couch myself. It's cozy underneath that fluffy down blanket. Work is over-rated especially when it is a monsoon out there. Did I mention it is freezing cold ???

I can just hear some wiseguy right now is gonna say something like "That ain't cold it is 25 here!" Well, it's the same thing. A 80 foot wave will capsize a boat same as a 100 foot wave. Cold is cold. But on top of it we gotta have all this nasty rain. COLD rain.
Just look at this mess . . . . .



Just yesterday were out there sawing mesquite in perfect weather . . . . If anyone comes around looking for me tell 'em I am at WalMart buyin a basket full of chinese socks. ::) When I get back I'll piut on a pot of coffee. y'all come one over. Talk is cheap and the coffee is free. BYOS. ;D

41 days without rain.  :'( Temp in the 80's daytime, in the 60's at night.

Wish I could be wet and cold for a day or two. :-\ ;D

It's been a cool -10 here for about a month.  Looking forward to December when it hits a nice -45 to -50. Then I will hibernate for about 2 months. ;D

No! Makes me cold just looking at it.

Wool socks make my feet sweat. Then the sweat freezes. Vicous cycle. Seems like we were just discussing this. Where did the year go.

Thin silk sock inside wool socks is the best combination for me, if I'm out in the below 0F weather.

My feet sweat a lot, and this was the best combination to handle it, given that I had the Gore-tex Danner boots on.. :)

Nothing wrong with that in Alberta this time of year.  8) The cold will come soon enough.

No winter here yet, 80's during the day, 60's at night. No killin frost yet either, only two little wimpy frosts. :o My neighbor, who turned 91 last week, says this is the latest he has ever seen it without a frost.

 Not only have we not had a frost yet, but the leaves are still green on the oaks.

 I reseaded 1.5 acres of lawn in september and I need to fretilaize it SOON!


 Cant do it till the leaves get picked up or Ill suck up all the fert. >:(

It got down below 0F last night for the first time this winter.  Actually had to turn on the boiler this morning.  :(
