Down in the T.C., about 150 miles south of me, they get black bear and mountain lion right in the city. You could whiz off your deck, but not a good idea, really bad at -25 below would freeze and just hang there.

i'm just picking on you zoomo.

my daughter goes to school in LA (lower alabama (auburn)),
she laughs every time they cancel school for a heavy frost...

funny thing is; detroit only got 6'' out of ''the blizzard of the century''
luckily the century is young...
it must have been a low news day, all the stations were focused on it.

I understand man, no hard feelings, you know us guys, we all give eachother hell. But here i am once again standing here without a damn thing to make money on. Though i guess i can't complain too much cause i pulled about five hours this morning. But I'm gonna complain anyway lol. This blows! people in texas need to learn to get out and get their cars worked on rain sleet snow, or ice.

I've been nursing this cast because I broke it new years day all because a horse got run over , left there for a week and a half... Then someone decides it's really stinking, so they got a tractor, scooped it on a trailer ( yeh scooped it up) and then as they drive down the road around the corner it drips like oil tar all over the road.. It rained , and I thought the stuff was gone even though I could see the patches..like dull..

Do you know that stuff really is greased lightening? Hit the corner with the bike, bike was straightened out ( like going straight now) and it slammed me to the ground..broke the ankle and tibia so bad that I have 7 screws and a plate, mine for just playing the game..

So the chevelle sits in the garage waiting to get completed ...two more weeks.. Oh well get these crutches off so I can navigate dang it!
Oh yeh it's cold too
Rant over.lol

I need to

That doesn't sound like fun. Well a least you will have something to tell you when the cold is coming.

Really, hope it's feeling better soon.

Northeast Pa is frosty and frozen too. Business was dead for 2 weeks. Now that inspections (monthly) are due we are stormin. Whew. the mortgage is due.
It is just winter and thats all . It aint the most Ideal for a car guy(like us) but its the price I pay for living in a beautiful part of the country.
I have lived in the land of enchantment( I was not enchanted)
I have lived in california It was OK not for me
I have lived in florida pretty hot there and steamy(good fishing though)
I love pennsylvania.I got a 25 foot waterfall out back I soak my feet in during summer. Deer in the backyard, state forest next door.
Its all covered with frozen stuff and all I can do is look at my car through the window, I cant put it in the shop. I too am ready for spring.
