You know, when  I was over in that place people were all excited when winter came. All they could talk about was their new tire chains and their blower mods. Here, people seem to have a different way of looking at the white dirt. Everyone around me seems to be getting Old!

Recent pictorial evidence supports that statement!

I'm not scared. Anybody got a pair of those under armour chorded thermal undies? They got little strips in 'em that conduct heat. Santa has also been tipped off to the DeWalt battery operated heated sweatshirts. And if it gets really cold, we don't work. -5 F is the cutoff, so we only work in nearly ideal conditions. Honestly, we're a bunch of wimps.

Last year was nasty around here, any way, Or is it really because I'm getting older and can't seem to deal with the cold and snow as easily as I use to. Going to raise furnace vent this year. It's side wall vent. Last year was very bad for it to plug up. I had some very bad times out in the storms trying to clear it. So I am going to raise it up about 6'. Hopefully I won't have to go out to clear it. I have lived in this house for 23 years. In the first 21 years I only cleaned the snow away from the exhaust pipe 3 times. In the last two years, it was 6 times last year and 3 the year before. Some thing is changing. Noel.


Global warming!

Global warming!

 I worked outside all last winter, got a very minor touch of frostbite on one fingertip and a not so minor touch of it on my left ear. We had around -20 to -25 celcius without the wind chill most days from January into March. Global warming my posterior.

Global Warming is another waste of tax payer $$$.  We have way to many people that have a piece of paper that says "I'm Smart" so they find a position for them doing govt. stuff.  We need  a lot more people that have some common sense and know how to work.  Global Warming don't fit under either area.

I love snow for thanksgiving, but rarely see it, if we don't have snow for Christmas, I get depressed ... I don't mind it, early, but lately it comes late and relentless ... This gets old fast...... But as long as its gone by April I'm fine .
Actually, I have a pile of dead maple in the swap that i cant get to unless it freezes hard... So bring on the freeze... Daddy needs wood for the farmstand stove lol.

Haven't you guys heard? It's all global warming! If it's hot, its global warming, if it's cold, it's caused by global warming, a lot of tropical storms, you guessed it, global warming! Not many tropical storms, well that on the other hand is caused by...global warming! Drought? Hey, global warming for sure. The only cure is to vacate the planet so mother earth can heal without evil humans...(insert rolleyes here)

You guys are all wrong, its not Global Warming, Global Cooling, ect.  It is now simply CLIMATE CHANGE.  That way its hotter, its colder, it snows more, it snows less, it can all be blamed on CLIMATE CHANGE

When we installed the new air conditioner in the church parsonage, we were discussing raising the exhaust vent on the furnace.
My nephew is a repair parts sales person for Lennox and works with installers every day. He said adding 1 90 degree elbow would cause as much restriction/drag as a 50 ft run of straight tubing. He said to use a 45 degree.
