I think it's great to see how much difference there is across the board. I bet a few of our southern friends are still camping

Colin & Karen,

It's no -24 below 0 here in Maine. We were at 19 this morning & about 38 during the day with sun. These temps are fairly nice for December

We're getting closer to our Florida trip just after x-mas

We'll be thinking of everyone in the North when we're in the South

Snowmageddon has hit here!!! Been snowing since midnight. It's now 12 hours later and it's still snowing. Already close to 10 inches and supposed to get 5 - 6 more before it's all said and done tonight.
The snowblowers are getting a workout!!!

Hey Dave ...try one of these snow eating badgers that I found this summer in our local zoo.

Merry Xmas and glad I am not the only one using my snow blower.

Those "snow eating badgers" here are probably hibernated already. They're not eating a thing!

I have some friends that probably built that engine you have. The plant was 30 minutes from here. I say 'was' because it shut down about 5 years ago. My Ariens is a 24" with an 8hp. Snow is wet and heavy, but not too bad. Just a lot of it!

Souns like you guy's are having fun in the snow. We are getting some at weekend. It's just cold with the wind chill.
Coops, it sounds like you could drive that blower of your to work or even pull your trailer with it Happy snow blowing..

Sounds like your doing your Snow Angel good deed Coops. Keep up the good work my friend.
My mum thought i wrote my name in the snow once but my dad said, " no, it's not his hand writing".

Nana and Poppy- 0 F is way colder than -7 C.
We hit -2C here on the coast overnight but it's about +4 now and sunny! All the ice is melting and it's quite pleasant out. We don't see much sun on the coast in winters....
