Default What's your Temp?

I woke up this morning and at 5:30 this is what I saw -14.6 F I took the dog for a walk very short I might add and it was -15 F. My indoor outdoor is only hung a few inches away from the siding so most cases it’s about one degree warmer. Starting my 2000 GMC 2500 with a quarter million miles on it was a testament to GMC as it spun over and lit right up. Even with the plow on and up I drove 30 minutes before I felt a hint of heat coming out of the dash and it normally drives you out. I got to work and looked for the official temperature and they showed it was still dropping at 7:00 and was at -20 F. now that’s getting a little cold for even me. I feel a little bad sitting in a warm office as my girlfriend just texted from her job milking cows saying the cows are a little slow getting moving today.

I wonder if I’m doing any damage to my deck walking on it this morning as each step sounded like shot gun rounds going off.

25* in Music City this morning. Not much of a breeze, but the TV weather man is having a heart attack about the storm south of us going through Georgia. We might get a dusting with probably freezing rain...it's winter folks.

As far as the deck, you'll be ok. If not, sounds like a good DIY come spring.

(and shame on you for not helping milk the cows this morning... )

Haha she looked like Nanook of the North when she left with 15 layers of clothes on. She works now for an old farmer named Ron in his 80’s and they had the radio on and they reported the temp at +3 F and she said he ran to the phone and called them and chewed them out saying it was -21 F and in so many farm words told them to get their heads out of their butts. She told me 5 minutes later the DJ came on and said we have a live call in with an updated weather report and played his call. That call might just get played a lot in the future.

As to me helping, the only thing that would do is make the job go twice as long. On a day like today they would give me a sledge hammer and tell me to go water the cows.

If this global warming keeps up you're going to freeze to death. We seldom get more than a few days below 32 and rarely get 0*F on the coast.
