Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Depends on the year.....

Didn't Miami get into the upper 20's earlier this winter? or maybe it was the 40's but I know they were complaining about being cold down there

Yup

The Carolinas are an interesting place, we have mountains AND sea coast, with just about everything in between. Best part is they are all with in a day's drive or less of each other. Definitely different from the Midwest where you can drive all day and only see corn. FWIW I lived in Huron, SD for a while back in the early 60's...my parents made me! Don't miss the winters at all.

Ice Everywhere

Here in Georgia, I wished I had saved my old ice skates, snow shoes or at least my old golf shoes with metal spikes! I have been caring for a friend's dogs, across the street, while she is in Hawaii. It is very difficult since we are on a hill and everything is coated with solid ice. The dogs legs are going every which way, when I let them out. It is hilarious to watch,but I don't want them to get hurt.There is no end in sight either. My husband even tried a blow torch on the icey driveway!!

it is a bit sad that in GA we are so unprepared for clearing the roads. It looks like it could be Friday before schools reopen if then.

Alan, good to see you still have the screens on. As a kid from Texas, I 'member the awe I felt at my granddad's in Clarion, PA, staring at the big stack of storms leaning inside his shed.

Boxers or briefs? Depends... Looks like I agree with rebelstand.

Last year had some pretty sharp cold hit all but the Rio Grande & Key West. We had our share of last minute threads from Austin, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama & north Florida asking how much winterizing they should do in a hurry.

We've had 28 to 32 degrees the last four or five nights here in sunny central California, and rain expected today and tonight. At least it warms up a little when it rains.
I also used the bucket -method to winterize. Some day I will have to put all of that plumbing back in!

I remember a thread 4-5 years ago from a guy doing halloween-ish camping in the High Sierra. He had a cell signal; so was able to post... it began snowing close to dark and then he heard the forecast for the morning dipping down to 5 or 10 above. He couldn't move readily and was a bit frantic.

There's less margin for error with older units with copper pipes. But running the furnace should provide a lot of protection if one can be close by.

I was just telling my therapist that the only worst place I could imagine being is Huron.
