Wish I were there...

It was in the low teens last night in Southern Middle TN... Supposed to be in single digits tonight. We're in our airstream and haven't made it out of the bed (except for coffee). Got the electric blanket going...

Hubby decided to make reservations to return to Topsail Hill (Can opener locale) next week. Said he "...needed someplace warm to work on the airstream." I just think he's dodging the cold...LOL!

Southeastern Minnesota temp (Rochester) is a balmy -24 degrees. My four kids are home with school being cancelled. Add in the windchill, as we always do around here, and it feels like -51. I did actually manage to do some work on my Airstream yesterday. The insulation is out and with an electric spaceheater I achieved 37 degrees inside. That's shorts weather around here! Please note in the attached pic that my trailer has adopted a "snow beret" in honor of Wally.

Ditto to GR8DANE's Rochester temp. Minus 24 here this morning. This isn't especially cold or long but we'll have 96 hours below zero by the time this breaks friday afternoon. And then we'll be 30 above on Sunday. My bro in Tempe has seen temperature swings that broad too. I guess lutefisk only sets us apart.

Here's a pic out my back window at dawn. We always have open water on this bend of our little river. But the crystal fog over the open water is cool! Time to go skiing.

Great video Lloyd!!

Those brass monkeys are still frozen today, minus 40, but I think it would take a nuclear bomb scare to close down the schools up here. Even if the buses are cancelled, schools are all still open. But they keep all the kids inside all day long if it's too cold - like yesterday and today. The result is 2 very agitated boys with wayyy too much energy who come home after school.

Now, where's that box of Calgon...?

It's about -13 here & our power just went out..... Thank goodness for the Honda generator! We've actually used it more for power outages this year than for camping! We heat our home with an insert that burns wood & an insert that burns corn. (hubby's a farmer) Only have to run the fans. No go without electric! But there is relief in sight....Next Saturday I leave for Cozumel. Yeee Haaww. No camping, just diving & sunning & drinking foo foo drinks by the beach!
