Boy it's cold!

Well, we are just finishing up a month and a half on the road. The 1st 2 weeks we left Colorado and went through Utah via Zion NP then ended up in San Diego, CA. We left SD this morning to head home and are now it St George, UT where it is -2 degrees! Welcome back to winter I guess

Yikes!

-20 is cold! We saw -11 on the drive and hit some snow and ice covered roads in Utah. That was frightening! Never towed a camper in snow and ice and won't mind if I never do it again. Had to peel my hands off the steering wheel a few times.

Well everyone, we received great news on the weather report last night. The long range forecast for Monday is a high of -7. This is great news as we'll be able to open the trap door on the long underwear and air things out before Christmas.

Your -11F trumps the -20C but either way it is cold. We almost, almost, took our camper to Texas when we went for Thanksgiving. Thankfully we did not. Ice, freezing rain, snow. What is normally a 14 hour drive took over 20 as most was less than 45mph in 4wd.

Nah...just steal it! And while your at it can you steal some of the snow too? We had another 6" inches night with another 4-6" expected today!
Just love lake effect snows when they stall!

Nice!

I always say, if it's going to be cold at least give us a ton of snow to enjoy!

It's a balmy 17F here today. Yesterday morning it was -1F with -25Fwind chill. I sat at the stop sign with my kid waiting for her school bus. Today I'll brave the heat wave and get in some last minute deer hunting.
