    As long as the sun is shining, I can deal with the cold. But if it's a cold, rainy day? Might as well send me back to bed! [​IMG]

    Quote:It was -30 here. Brrrr. I don't mind it. Back in the day I used to haul crab traps in it when I was 17-23. Being on the water at those temps is brutal.

    We have only a woodstove for heat. It really is the best way for us to heat. Has it's perks. I do hope we get some warmer weather soon. My electric bill will go up from the chickens. I am running two heat lamps in the coop. It'll probably go from 30.00 to 60.00. [​IMG] Looking forward to the spring. Not long now.....wishful thinking!![​IMG]

    Quote:When I was 6 we lived in Fairbanks, Alaska. My mom picked me up after school and we went to the daycare to get my little brother. As we walked by a candy cane painted steel pole... Oh yeah I did!! Stuck my tongue to it. The was 47 years ago and I still hate to have my hand stuck to anything frozen.

    I can't watch the scene in A Christmas Story when he sticks his tongue to the pole. Bad memories...
