James, I suggest you get away from all that harsh winter weather and move to tropical Minnesota. :D :D  Some good things about winter though.....no bugs on the windshield, can use the garage for a huge freezer, don't have to run the air conditioning, ice cold water right out of the tap, don't have to mow the grass, etc, etc 8)

That snow blowing and plowing with longer walks in the woods due to closed access roads make up some for that grass cutting and leaf raking.

Be glad you don't live in Buffalo, NY.  I think an average winter is 144 inches of snow.  Snowiest city in the US.

Our time here in Michigan is way past due.  Beautiful day today.  50 degrees and sunny!!  Strange weather for Northern Mi on Dec 2.  We're gonna pay I'm sure but every nice day like this is one less nasty one we could have and that much closer to spring.  Is it too soon to mention spring?

I can remember having to track out to the “outhouse” out back on days like that.   :-[

Always took alot of restraint to outwait Michelle for the honor of being first to warm the seat in the outhouse. :D
We decided the one good thing about our time with one was that it made you get up and out in every kind of weather, and after a few minutes outside you realize its an ok day out there after all.
Mom never could get used to the lack of door, even though the view is of the nat'l forest a few miles off. We've sat there and watched turkey, deer...
The weather has been awesome here too, poured concrete without a care last week. Mighty late for that, but I'm sure not complaining!

On nights that preceed days like the one below you do your business in a pail and take it out in the morning.



Up here when you sit your bare butt on anything outside in weather like this you`ll wear it to bed because it won`t come off without surgery!  :D

Talking about the outhouse brings back good ole winter memories. One camp we had a very nice outhouse, that is until you had to use it in the winter. So dad got the bright idea to put a heat lamp in it to warm the seat. It was one of those good ideas on paper. the seat was still very very COLD ON THE BACKSIDE.

As you well know an outhouse in winter doesnt need any magazines in it. :D

Cool pictures guys.

Don't Ya Hate a Whiner?  
Why when ah waz a boy we used ta log like it twernt nothin in twenty below zero in our tee shirts with four foot ob dat der fluffy white stuff that ya had ta clear from tween the trees in order ta git up aginst em ta cut em.  Let them dar trees down easy tho.
Make me sound old or what.  
Seriously though, its not bad being in the woods if the wind isn't blowing in the winter.  You know youve had too much snow if the skidder won't make it through without plowing first, or if you have to dig to get to a reasonable stump height.

In a normal winter In Houghton, Michigan, they have to shovel out the power lines and gas pumps. Also build high boardwalk to access the homes as they can't keep up with the snow removal from their entrance walks.

I also agree with Buffalo for excessive snow fall after spending some time there also.
