good one Dave. For sure on the temps.


We found out long ago we are _weather weenies_ . Our employer had announced plans to expand into ND. We watched the weather channel for six months prior to making any decision. We decided to stay in our mild and soggy PNW rather than freezing our rears off in winter.

Good decision Thom, but as I was born in Mich I wouldn't have had to watch any TV weather for the same outcome.

I have lived my whole life in northern Minnesota & northern Wisconsin and cannot understand the unwarranted fear of winter. Winter in our area is no worse than the extreme heat and humidity experienced in other parts of the country. We got a lovely blanket of snow last week and I for one am looking forward to the tranquility of winter.

: ) ...fear of winter...


I'm just spoiled I guess. It is hard for my wife and I to justify venturing to far from our native PNW even though the greenery comes at a cost of ~80" of rain. But our rigs rarely need heat, or AC (used the ac in our big rig ~4 days last summer?). It makes boondocking and going off grid quite easy. Summer is low 70's, winter is mid 50's.
