Good thing. It's so cold this morning, those pumpkins would freeze in mid

flight, and turn into WMDs. -17c  (1 F)

It looks like we're finally getting some colder weather.

It's been a strange and mild Dec.

Forecast this morning.

It should be safe to drag the victim out on the ice in a week or so.

Yeah, and it turns into Taffy, or something like that, and is very brittle.

It's been mild up there because someone left the door open and the cold came down here! :rolling:

 

Looking forward to another contest this year! No telling what Cat will try to pull this year.

Still working on my plans. Think it needs to be a bit larger with more counter weights!

Today, I finally got the tractor out on the ice.

Sorry for the delay, but January has been a stretch for me.

 

So, let the educated guessing begin. :dancingbanana:

I'll start a thread in the site supporter forum, where you can

do that. Date and time is all that's needed. If you're not a site

supporter, maybe now is the time to sign up, and join in the fun.

A link to the rules can be found in the 1st post to this thread.

 

Here are a few pics of todays mission.

It was a bit cool at -9c, but nothing like the last 3 days. They were

around -16c for a high, and wind chill of about -32c.

 

The riggin.

The ice felt safe.

Sounds like a fine idea. We name me as the winner now and end winter early. All those in favor say "bring on Spring". :D
