Lol, the only thing that sucked was the -35F temps for that two week period in January. Other than that, no worse than western PA other than the length. I was actually surprised by the relative lack of snowfall. It's just that the stuff we did get, stuck around.

I remember years ago when that area got much more snow.

I'm sure it goes in cycles, just like everything else from women to economic conditions.

I wonder how long it will be before they move the start of the Iditarod up to Trapper Creek.

For the summer. I won't be spending winters there again unless your predictions somehow come true while I'm up and the -48 descends into a lawless cesspool of socialism and society completely falls apart...though wait, lawless cesspools do have their own kind of charm....


I can do whatever I want to do...

Lol, that must be a nice freedom to have. But, I have a priority that overrides all others.

I completely understand. Mine is 24 now; thus the freedom. You are raising her well, so your turn will come

I hope. I'm just worried that a teenage girl is going to put me into an early grave.
