I don't know how you cope with cold like that. Today I was working on my bus outside: I just had my usual bus shorts and flipflops, not even a T-shirt on, and it was 70 or more in the sun. Now that's my kind of winter. Tomorrow we're forecast to get more rain, and the daytime temps will plummet down into the 60s. Brrr.

I keep seeing photos of some mysterious white stuff on the ground. What is it? I don't understand.

LOL, and just a few hundred miles north of you it's been raining like a cow pissing on a flat rock for 2 days.

Yep, snow here too. 15 degrees now and headed to the low of 5. I was fortunate to have saved a long fiberglass pole and attached a broom to the end and swept the solar pannels since the 6 inches of snow was so cold and light.

I enjoy the challenge, and if my mind has a challenge it leaves me alone. lol
Enjoying my new found love for sawing and chopping wood. Been dreamin of a wood stove for ...sheesh since i was like 18 and visited a friend who had one, and then stayed with a gal in Olympia and we'd sit by the fire all night. Goodness where does time go.

I'm going to be driving into Denver right after a snowstorm most likely to liberate a bus from the icy cold grip of death in January. Send me all your good vibes, prayers, and constructive superstitions LOL
