When it was still February I seemed to be able to handle this better, but today March 4, 2014 and Negative TEN Fahrenheit that’s -10F and windy (5:00 am), and I looked to the skies and held up my hands and proclaimed “Enough God!” “I will no longer argue my disbelief of man-made global warming. Just bring the spring.” My dog was looking at me like can we get moving here or I’m going in the driveway.

I can hardly wait till summer and I can get on here and complain about the heat.

I'm still trying to figure out where Oldog puts that long handle.
Daylight saving time this weekend, we used think winter was over when we changed the clocks.

I think thatís where the newtrick part comes in.

As to daylight savings time it might just make it warmer. I have been watching the thermometer more than ever this winter and I noticed most of the time the coldest is just before dawn.

All my long johns are short handled maybe I should check out the long handled ones, I think they are made by Carhartt. I hear they are warm but a pain to break in.

Oh those red long handles. My grandma used to wear those. We never had much use for them as she wouldn’t dig them out (Long Johns, northern term) till it hit -40F.

It hasn't gotten cold enough for long pants and a jacket this year. Been the mildest winter in years.
