    I am so sorry for everyone and their families who don’t have power. I’m on the other spectrum losing power during hurricanes but not the freezing insane cold. Please stay safe.
     
  12. Lucas !!! Yes, sir. Right down the way.

    Lucas Wally World was closed today. Crazy. Never seen that, before. Had to run to Kroger's .. .. which may as well been a Cowboys game.

    Place was packed to the gills !! No milk. Went to Braum's & the line was out the door, everyone with 2, 3 & 4 gallons of milk. LOL

    I just stood there with my one gallon purchase. :rolleyes: I dunno' what the hell anyone does with 3 and 4 gallons of milk. Sheez' !!

    We are the lucky ones, yes. Hope all is well with you, and yours.

    .. and whatever the local dairy cows need. :D

    It'll be 60 by Saturday and everyone will have bad milk.
     
  14. Hahaha !!! I can't wait, for that !! I don't even know what people think.

    "Honey, the power is out. It's freezing. Better go buy all the milk !!"

    Guess it goes with their summer's toilet paper bank.

    LOL!! I never thought of that! I had to laugh! You got me! But it seems like is was colder and stayed colder back then. I know I had to cut ice most of the winter days for livestock. Sometimes it would be four inches thick! 48 pounds...... you got me!

    It is definitely a cold spell. We took my wife’s non heater equipped OT 60’s mopar to dinner tonight and at 48 degrees it was so cold she had to use a blanket to keep her legs warm!
    Sorry, I could not help myself. Lol

    Ain't that the truth. When Jr. was at home we averaged about a gallon every 2 days. Should never have a calcium deficiency I guess.

  29. The schools have been closed here for 3 days. Most things are normal. All of us old guys laugh at how this works now. When we were in grade school, there were no such thing as snow days. The few that didn't make it in got make up work to do and that was the extent of it. I will say that living in a rural area, people were more self sufficient. When they ran mud routes, the parents would take the kids to the highway to meet the bus. Those days are long gone. I did see a plumber with a large space heater trying to thaw outside wall pipes on a house. We have many residents from south of here that have never seen below zero before. It's all a learning process in life: new environment, new rules. :)

    Ya know...I don't mind the cold. Hell...I love it! I camp (in a tent, no less), hike, etc in the cold. But ice fishing is about the dumbest thing out there. I gotta be moving. I can't just sit there looking at a hole in the ice.
