Default Yes, it's winter but

Yes, it's winter but ....................

First - we've had and continue to have extremely cold lows. -20C to -25C (-4F to -13F) nights - lots of them. We typically get one or two cold snaps over the whole winter so this is unusual. The river froze a month early.

Second - the snow. We just had our 4th snow storm for this December. There is so much snow on the ground now as, in between the storms, we get a little bit of snow almost every day. One winter here I used my snow blower 4 times........ in total. I've had my snow blower out 8 times this December already! A few neighbors have been clearing snow off their roofs.

All the new snow keeps everything pretty though

main North / South highway

The cold temps just continue out here. It's a beautiful sunny day but, by mid afternoon, the temperature has not made it higher than minus 13 F (-25C)

We have had similar here in Minnesota. An early 8" snow, and then every other day another couple of inches to shovel. We have had near -20* F over 1/2 dozen times, and that is rare for December, more like January. At least it keeps me inside getting some of the stuff done I need to do before spring.

Many times here, when winter is early, spring is also, so I am hoping, and hoping, and hoping.

I guess I should feel lucky to live in Alaska right now. We had -25 for a couple of days but then nothing below +5 since then. Our total snow fall has been about 12", very unusual on both for this time of year! We had rain yesterday... go figure. The Queen B sits in our un-heated shop with no winter access to it except through the man door. There is about 3' of walk around room front and sides, just enough room to open side doors and squeeze in for engine and generator starting. I read through about 4 different forums for ideas on what to do to our rig and also for lessons on maintenance, I got it bad I guess, heck I even read articles on Class A, Class c, TT, Fivers, Campers, stuff that doesn't even pertain to me! The future will bring a bigger heated shop that will provide an area to work(play) on the rig in the winter, I guarantee it!

I wish somebody would explain to me why I live here. Momentum?

Stay indoors when that comes through.

10.7C (51F) here yesterday! That's a new record for that day of the month. Record lows, record highs - what a winter.

We had a brief respite yesterday with a high of 39F, and now it is headed back towards normal. It was odd yesterday to watch the thin coating of snow,ice on the driveway. The ground is so cold that it didn't even begin to melt if it wasn't in the direct sunlight, even though we were above freezing for over 24 hours.

Despite the warm weather yesterday, this is our asphalt sleet covered driveway as of a few minutes ago. We had a coating of about a quarter inch of sleet on our thoroughly plowed driveway last weekend and the stuff looks like a heavy white Rhino coating.
