Yet again the temps is hovering in the teens again, high of 20 today with the 30 to 35 mph arctic blast pushing it down to 10-15 degrees, was at 0 and mabey below last night.

 

6 months of cold weather up here in Ashfield, four of which was bitter cold and still persists even after the first day of spring.

We are burning wood that was cut for next winter, the seasoned stuff has been gone for weeks, lows in the thirties next few days. That is cold here, especially late in March.

 

I feel really bad for the folks in the midwest and up east. You have had a brutal winter.

Kenny,

You guys keep getting the ''spin-offs'' from the blasts that drives it's way into your area, sqats over your state and proceeds to fling extrements like Danel's poo flinger.

 

Jeeze, enough already, at this point i'll take a solid month of rain if it comes so long as it stays above 40 degrees.

-12* here last night ! Typical lows this time of year is usually low to upper 20s. Normal highs at this time of year is 40s+. Today only on the lower 20s.  Spring just can't find that corner to turn around and get here yet.   Stay warm, Stay safe.                                              Roger.

I'm sure the farmers are going to feel this cold weather too . A woman who's husband & son farm said they are weeks behind other years , the snow stayed on the fields and  the ones that are cleared  are still too wet to perpare . I feel bad for them

12 above this morning at 5am, wood pile is low, and the oil tank is down under 1/4 tank left, it just won't quit and we have another storm coming in mid week.  

Oh well, spring will show up eventually I'm sure.

I'm tired of it. I'm running low on wood and we have another snow storm heading our way for Tuesday night. Pellets are low and we planned ahead for supply. 

 

It's clear that mother nature hasn't gotten the memo that it's spring....

You know it's cold when you (me Yesterday) go to get a GT, Pay for it then leave the persons house with an empty trailer!

 

It was just to windy and cold to deal with flat tires and the tractor being frozen into the ground. Maybe I'll get it come July??

 

Stay warm everybody!

Cold snaps in March are not unusual, but we got 6" of snow last Monday, and this morning it was 24. 35 right now, our normal would be about 55. We had a -12 this year, coldest on record.

Im very much falling weeks behind on work, keep cramming everything in a day or two when above 40.

 

I have a job that needs to be done and if this continues we will have to scramble to get it done before the may/june rains come and floods out everything.

Cold and snow storm are not unusual in March and April here in PEI , but i am sick of it. Long winter, started first of December. I need to get things done out side and want to get the motor out of my LGT 165 so i can get the motor done, was hoping to have it out by now. The 165 has the blower on it. It does most of the snow removal.  Noel

I hear you... this time last year I had seed started, garden plowed, grapes budding, mowers prepped for thier first cut... NONE of that has happened yet this year (and I'm not even close).

 

I've got half a dozen tilling jobs lined up but the ground won't dry up enough to do it. It is just now getting close and we are getting rain and snow tonight and tomorrow. :wallbanging:
