HELL YES! Now I won't have fight the ticks, mosquitoes, snakes, and spiders when I am out rummaging around for parts.
Not yet!!! Still installing a 80,000 BTU furnace in the garage!! Retired the wood burner!
nah im racing my ass off to beat the snow, i dont have a garage, fall is bad enough, the groudn is coverd in leave that are all the color of rusty metal its imposible to find anytign dropped
unfortunately, yes. need some snowplowing revenue to shore up the finances
hehe... winter? never heard of it!
Man when its 70 in the shade its cold enough for me !!!
I'm in Minnesota; in a word "NO".
Whats this "Winter" you speak of?
I can't wait...the rattlesnakes will go away for awhile...killed 3 babies this week...I hate those bastards...a year and a half ago my little daughter got bit by one...I am completely paranoid at this point...we may not really get a winter here but at least it puts the snakes away for a few months
Can not wait for winter light coat no sweating my ass off .Gotta love TEXAS
Yep, both my long sleeve shirts are clean. Wanted to make sure in case it's a long winter.............
Yeah..got so cold I had to wear a sweatshirt on the bike this weekend..but thankfully warmed up to reasonable 80* this week...
of course not, winter in the fargo/moorhead area isnt exactly heaven on earth.
what? its starting to get kinda chilly aint it?
nope, i'm not! winter can eat a dick.....
Winter is good....from the inside looking out
Damn right, no more sweating, no more mosquitos, chiggers, or any of those other little bastards trying to get a free meal off of me. It's cold enough out now, that the snakes aren't trying to get in thru the patio door. Frost due tonight, so that ought to get rid of the rest of the outside pests.
The chimney is cleaned out, and I just brought in some logs. The bird feeder is filled, not much to do on the rides except go around and check nuts and bolts... so bring it on.
Yeah, if you think 75 is chilly!
it's beautiful here bout 24C (70somthin?)today and just gettin warmer by the day
NO!! Just got 6" of snow here the other day.... Pretty much gone already, but still... Garage is ready for my winter hibernation tho...
Yeah, can't wait 80° every day 60° at night, I've been ready for 3 months.
I love the fall.......
But winter can kiss my ass !!
maybe im just used to it being 90 every day.
I'm over winter, it was long and cold and wet by our normally mild east coast of Australia standards.
Have at it, you northern hemi guys.
Winter? I can drive to the snow if thats what your asking.
Maybe Got a new big high tech iron wood stove that burns the logs down to ZIP
Rusky's shut off the gas? We are ready! Wood's real cheap here. Unike food, fuel, cloths, shoes, everything else. I got a 400 lb bag of kiln dried oak floor 2nds for fire starting for US$20........ But Big Mac's $6.50
Many of my neighbors are going to have to choose between heat and food and forget driving. Hard working people suppering from 10-20% inflation and 22% sales (VAT) tax
Local money here has dropped as much as 30% to the US$ good for us but our friends are really suffering.
And I fear friends it will only get worse.
People here are strong aren't so far from the hardships of Communism that they can't get by.
Sorry for the rant..........
Off to Czech for a swap meet........
Aren't they the guys who were so cold they invented the QC? Gary
We had about 2" of snow the other day. Tomorrow it'll be 75. I'll deal with it. It's worth it to be out of that South California mess. Wayno
i hate winter!
