Weather man said we beat an all time low since 1912. (zero degrees)
It apparently hit -2*F. actual temp. in Tulsa.

Bartlesville, Ok was -14*F. with chill factor of -24*F.
We've already used up 1/2 our 1,000 gallon propane tank.
That's usually where it is in February after the cold begins to go somewhere else.

Our kids moved to Florida for various reasons.........
One "excuse" was the weather........well, today they are
putting boxes over their palm trees because it's going to
get below freezing.......LOL. It should remind them covering
their garden plants around here.

It's Winter here in Michigan, and gentle breezes blow.
Thirty miles an hour, At sixteen degrees below.

Oh, how I love Michigan when the snow's up to your butt.
You take a breath of winter air, And your nose gets frozen shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful, So I guess I'll hang around.
I could never leave dear Michigan, 'cause I'm frozen to the ground!


I like having four seasons I just wish they were not June, July, August, and SNOWMOBILE!

Literally snow in backyard is deeper than our dog and she is 18 inches at the shoulder. She charged and jumped her way out to her potty spot then realized it's kind of hard to "go" buried up to your chin in snow. Had to make a few passes in the back yard with the snow blower to giver her a dog run. Boy was she one happy dog.

I used to haul Webb Wheel blanks from a foundry in East Jordan, MI.
Decades ago, but have always intended to take a winter vacation to
Michigan. Don't think this is the year to do it though...............LOL

We hauled in the winter time as well as the rest of the year.
I loved driving through Michigan. Just didn't like the 18 hours getting there.

I can absolutely, positively guarantee no mosquitos this time of year and if you appreciate a nice campfire in July I'm betting a campfire in January will beat it all to heck.

I feel your pain as I sit here in so. Az. So glad I sold farm, cows, and sheep this past summer and am free of outdoor chores this winter. New owners of farm and several of my sheep called to say a set of trippletts were born early a.m. with windchill at -19...mom and lambs doing fine, I think they wanted me to feel guility that I finally retired at age 70. Stay warm and dry.

Yippeee! the "Polar Vortex" is leaving the Midwest.

Dumped 12" of snow on Indianapolis on Sunday, -13F with -33F wind chill this morning. Pretty unusual for us, coldest in 20 years. We are already above our snow average for the entire season.

It's up to a balmy +6F now with +40F and rain predicted for Saturday.

Go figure!

Today we had to take our daughter to her doctor in Tulsa.
I went out to start the car so it would already be heated up
by the time the ladies got ready. There were sheets of ice
on our stairway (steps) outside. I've always been very cautious
about stepping flat footed when there's ice. I don't know what
happened this morning, but one bad step and I was down on my
back. Problem was I hit the edge of the step with my shoulder
blades. I thought I had broken my back. But, thankfully I could
still move after laying there for a few seconds. A little difficult
to get back up.......LOL. The ladies were at the other end of the
house and didn't hear a thing. Even if I were able to yell and did,
they wouldn't have heard a thing. Wearing SAS shoes does NOT help.

I managed to get back up so I walked gingerly across the drive and
started the car. Then I very, very cautiously went back up the steps
and back into the house. Got the scissors, opened a new bag of salt,
and covered the ice with it. At least wife and daughter had better
chance at avoiding injuries.

Thankfully, chiropractor is on the way to Tulsa. I was going to pass on
by, but when I got to the exit I decided to check to see if they were open.
Luck.........open and not a soul in sight. Went right straight to the table
and got fixed up. He said it's best to do this soon after it happens before
it locks in or sets up. Sad for them their heater had quit. Both wearing
their coats........lol. Of course he took his off when doing adjustments.
I didn't know I lost a chunk of hide on my right elbow in the fall until I laid
on the adjustment table. It was painful to the touch.

Then back on the road to the doctor. Once we got to Tulsa we got behind
a guy in a pickup with a large dog in the back. I don't know what he was
standing on but he could see over the cab. It was obvious whatever it was
it was very cold. The dog kept dancing raising each foot after one or two
seconds. He'd try to sit briefly but was right back up. This time I truly felt
sorry for someone's pet. When I finally passed the pick up I could tell the
dog was tied with a cable.

Anyway, we're back home now and I'm getting plenty sore.........LOL

It is 34º and rain in your house?

It is 44º and rain here in the Great Pacific North Wet, that is outside.

Left coast applies to Oregon and Washington, too.
