Up this AM about 6, dark outside, let the dog out, make coffee, forget the dog, let her back in, endure her evil stare for awhile, drink some coffee, visit with the GTTALK clan, check out other frequented sites, finally hear wife stirring about 8:30, light outside now, let the dog back out, look outside and THE CHANNEL IS FROZEN OVER ARGGGGGH.
Wont last as we are in the 40s right now but always hate to see it start.

Oh well, springs coming, right????

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels like that! I love new years because then I can tell my self spring is just a few months away and if we have an early spring like last year that would be great.:smile1:

I'm not a big fan of winter either. I think it's mostly the short days and lack of sun that bother me the most. This year November has been sunnier than normal including today. That's a big bonus for me.

I also enjoy plowing and blowing snow but sure as heck wish the temperature was around 70* when I do it.

I don't care for the cold. That means I'm stuck in the house and I get bored very easily! GT shop is mostly open air, so not much gets done.

:ditto:

I think it's mostly the short days and lack of sun that bother me the most...


I think that's what bothers me the most too! By the time I get home from work, I have about an hour and 1/2 before it's too dark to do anything outside.

I don't care for the cold. That means I'm stuck in the house and I get bored very easily!


I have a hard time mustering up the enthusiasm to go out and get anything done...then I get that nagging feeling that there's something I should be doing!

GT shop is mostly open air, so not much gets done.


My shop has 4 walls and a door and is actually quite well insulated, but there's not really a good source of heat (yet). So what I find is that it's actually colder inside than out! I have Rheumatoid arthritis and some other similar issues that are exacerbated by the cold. Where I work there isn't any climate control, so I spend all day in the cold during the winter and have a hard time convincing myself that I should spend some more time in it when I get home! I am looking into putting a wood burner in, but haven't nailed down the one I need yet.

I just get frustrated when I have to put so many layers on to work outside all day. Then occasionally when it snows I forget about the cold and enjoy the seat time.

We're supposed to have our first freeze Saturday night, low of 32. I really don't mind the weather much as long as it stays between 65 and 105. Below that and I hurt, above that the wife wants me to stay inside too much. The weather man says we're supposed to have a mild winter which is good as long as we get enough cold weather for the fruit trees. Come on March.
