It's a warm and sunny 30 degree day here but we're on day 2 of some 40 MPH winds and I have to go outside and locate all of out Nativity scene pieces... our plastic outdoor table and chairs were all blown into the woods yesterday so I suspect that Joseph, Mary, and little Baby J are there now too.

An 18 degree wind chill - below that is.  Temp is 4 above.  Had maybe 8" last night.  Went to the Amish neighbors a mile away for dinner and nearly had to take their horse and buggy home - those things go anywhere.  They still haven't plowed.  I turn in a basement.  When there's this much snow, I oftentimes get way too much shavings below me for comfort.  I need to tunnel a path to the woods whereupon I can dump said shavings, but that's a 125ft path - or buy lots of 50 gallon drums till the snow melts.   I do have to deal with the pile before it dries. That said, I love the weather.  My wife doesn't.  However a trip to the Cayman's for for a week of bonefishing with my 8wt sounds like fun...are there bones in Lanzarote?

All I have to do is open the a couple of windows if it gets to warm!  Cool

Low to mid 20's here for a high, with way too much wind for my liking.  Just glad I don't have to turn outside and that I have a good heater when I do get the time to turn.

A long-time buddy of mine (Frank Jaxon) is a radio DJ for Eagle 106.5 in your neck of the woods. He's been camped out on a 25' x 25' platform in the Ranch and Home parking lot in Kennewick for the past 12 or 13 days doing a holiday toy drive for needy kids. It's been fun (and a bit painful) keeping up with his trials and tribulations over the past few days on Facebook.

We're in about the same boat as Jim...LA has had record-breaking heat the past couple of days, although it's supposed to drop down into the 50s by the end of the week.
