I spent some time near my tractor today...I went up to do some work on the carburetor, but wound up cleaning off my workbench and renewing my war against the new fluffy tailed rats in my barn! After about an hour, during which the propane buddy heater hadn't made a dent in the 10 degree temperature, I gave up and went in the house to finish supper! Is it summer yet?

You should start 2 tractor projects when it's this cold. Park them at either end of the barn. Run back and forth to get the wrench. That'll
keep ya warm.

That's a good idea Will. Anything to stay warm. Also liked your comment about tee shirt weather. It's about 10F here this morning. Some of the coldest temps we have had in these parts. Weatherman is calling for a warmup by the end of the week.

Yesterday it was 18 here in IL when I got up, got up 32 for the high, It was 28 this morning and is supposed to get to 45. Not as cold as what some of you are dealing with but cold enough for me.

Weather has been wierd this last month. We only got 2" of snow in Iowa for the month of December and it melted the next day.
And no measurable snow in the forecast. Yesterday it got up to 35, and today they say it will be 54. Tomorrow mid 60's and mid 40's for the weekend.
Being good neighbors, we will send that out East for you all.

And Brian in Texas, when people from up north tell you ,you get used to the cold. Don't you believe it, that's a load of Horse Manure. Youn can learn to deal with it, but you never get used to it.

It hovered right around 0 here in central NY last night. Supposed to be back around 40 by the weekend. Yea. Have had no seat time as of yet with the snow removal. We have had maybe 4" total all year and last year and it has melted away by the afternoon. Forgot it was 2012 already. This time last year we had already had 40" of snow on the ground.
