I moved from Chicago because I really started to hate all the snow but even more the short summer (Temps over 80 degrees)

Now last night it was 19 degrees here in Northern Mississippi. Not too cold but around here that is like January in the windy city, and it feels more like 19 below to me cause I just got home from Western Australia where the tempertures were in the high 70's/low 80's.

Pick, it's -15 F as I type this ... so at least you're 42 degrees warmer!

But really, you guys have to do something about that. You've got a reputation to uphold! And I don't want to have to pack the long underwear ...

You might want to send your picture to Airstream for their photo of the month. This one looks like a winner!

Cold??

Orange, CA
70F right now, light breeze from the West, high 40's to low 50's at night.
Perfect weather to work on my 63 Overlander.
We did have a cold spell a few weeks ago. It went to an unbelievable 38F one night in November, right after a rainstorm.
I feel for all you guys in the cold climate, but envy you all for your chance of a white Chrtistmas!

About to change

It's 76 and sunny outside right now, but I winterized the trailer this morning. Sometime tonight, the first of two cold fronts is expected. The first will get us down in the low 30s tonight and the second will get the Austin city area down to about 26 for a couple of nights; probably down in the teens here in the Hill Country since we always get colder.

We used the trailer last weekend, so I had to drain and blow out the lines and put antifreeze in the traps. I also removed the water pump filter and blew the water out of the pump. I flushed the tanks well before leaving the state park Sunday.

In mid-January, we will be going to the WBCCI Midwinter IBT Rally. If I am real lucky, I won't have to winterize again after that rally.

**How Cold is it?**

It is quite unusual, but it looks like Southern Illinois will be having a white Christmas this year - - the National Weather Service has posted a Winter Storm Warning for late tonight (December 21) through 6 a.m. tomorrow (December 22). I am just a few miles from the Johnson County line where they are forecasting the heaviest band of snow -- 6 to 10 inches on top of ice. According to the advisories I have heard the heaviest snow is expected a few miles either side of a line from Vienna, IL to Evansville, IN. The grocery stores and gas stations have been doing a VERY brisk business around here this afternoon - - at 11:00 a.m. there were two cars at each pump when I filled up the Suburban (I had three cars lined up behind me by the time the tank finished filling with its 43.7 gallons of gasoline). To add to the winter scene, they are forecasting heavy winds for Wednesday into Thursday with bitter cold through at least Sunday.

At least our brush with winter will be comparatively short in comparison to what winter could be like in for Northern Illinois - - that move 400 miles to the South makes quite a difference in the duration of winter weather.

Kevin
