Perfect time to test the Propane Furnace if you have one. I like mine, but more often use a little Pelonis Cube Heater that makes the insides nice & toasty. You may notice t a little radiated cold near the walls as the fiberglass & insulation isn't always 100%.

You'll also find out how much charge capacity your 12V battery has as it's the power source for your propane furnace. Mine needs replacing, another reason I use the cube heater.

Enjoy the Snow! It ain't often you see it in your neck of the woods. and I'm sure it won't stay long.

Wow, how fun!

It's been pretty chilly here the last three nights. I actually cleaned out the house furnace and used it before bed.

Happy camping in the snow, April! I'm excited for you.
I got a birthday present in late October in North Carolina:
Enjoyed walking in the woods during a beautiful, crisp day, woke up about 1 am to the sound of sleet (or something) for a couple minutes, then silence. Here's what morning brought us:

Wow, we are still waiting for our first snow here on Vancouver Island (Canada isn't all snow and ice). Ski hills are getting worried as they should have opened 2 weeks ago.

Wow, that's crazy... snow in Houston.
Waaaaay up here we have just barely a skiff just to remind us that winter is supposed to happen (which will be on Sunday when the overnight low is forecast to be -28C )

Gee.. all this SN*W talk (sorry but that is a 4 letter word in MY book) suddenly makes me feel way better about the foggy / overcast mornings we have been having here in California's Great Central Valley. Highs have still been in the low 60's. Thank GOD my folks moved to California back in the 50's.

Backstory on their decision to move... our family is from the Pittsburgh area - my Great, great great great grandpa, Wilhelm Weinel was a preacher in western PA... anyway after WWII, my dad's brother settled in Sacramento. He kepy writing letter to pop about how NICE it is.. no snow and cold... no coal and soot and crap.... This went on for 11 years. Finally in 1956 we came out for a visit. 1957 we moved. THANK YOU POP!!!!!!!!!!
