Yesterday it was 5C now -10C tomorrow morning -28C (with wind) and more then 1M of snow 1hr north of me. It is a big storm but I hope I only get a few cm of snow. I have stacked extra fire wood inside...if I don't loose electric power I will be warm:)

This winter just will not let up...high today -10C and tomorrow morning -19C again. Cold for the rest of the week...the wood pile is getting low but at least I am getting lots of exercise:)

That's a tough winter overthere, Mike. Here it is giving up slowly, I just lowered the heating today. Hoping that the other side of the Atlantic will catch up with us soon.

This year the wood pile has been a part time job:( Not as much time and energy to hunt tangos. I am doing some renovating to a bath room. New sink, faucets and drains. I am going to refinish an old claw foot bathtub with epoxy paint and also upgrade faucets and drains. Lots of work AND $. Marc are you able to do some of the work?

Well I did just book a flight to Disney World in Florida. It will be early May and going with the 2 grand-kids (age 2 and 5)and their family. Should be a nice break. I just got an extra battery for my Olympus XZ-1. (I assume you are taking renovation pictures with your nice Nikon P330 (when your not taking pictures of Max:))

Tony it looks like we finally get above 0C early next week (-19C this morning) and maybe near 5C next weekend!! Good thing as I have used ~85% of my wood supply (usually 65-70% by now). I buy wood by the 'face cord' (pile 1.2M high X 2.4M long) and had 16FC at the start of the winter. I will be out about the end of February. That is a lot of wood to carry and put in the stove...but it is much cheaper then Oil!

Well -20.5C again this morning BUT this Polar Vortex is finally moving north where it belongs:) Should be +5C later in the week and that should melt some of the 60cm of snow on my lawn.

Weather is crazy, I read in the news a few days ago they measured +25C / +77F in Bulgaria (or Croatia?). In the middle of February...

Just checked the forecast in your area though, apparently the cold is giving up. Perhaps it's time to get some tangos. ;)

Yes it is getting better here for a few days.

Had the grand-kids last weekend and have them again this weekend starting tonight...tangos will be taking over;)

Ouch.

Have a nice weekend with the children. :)

Good time with kids but picked up a cold:( Doing some extra vitamin C. I see tomorrow morning the temp will be -15.5 again:(
