Sure is fun over here. Soon the Hell will freeze.. The temperature have stabilized at about -22F...

The wife called me at work this morning and said her car wouldn't start this morning.. I know for sure I turned on the blockheater on that one but she wasn't sure if she turned it off when she turned off the lamps in the workroom as the swithes are side by side in there. If not then I suppose the automatic fuse have shut down due to overload... We'll see when I get back home later this afternoon...

I need a block and tank heater for my '91 Jetta. What is the best block heater? And where is a good tank heater?

Its only like 30* here right now supposed to be like 43* but it's not sunny yet.

The diesel started up yesterday and last night no problems with 100% biodiesel.

12 to 15 inches so far and counting. they say we may get another 12 to 20 today. . oh yeah i am at work right now trying to get a diesel tractor outside in this wonderful stuff to run. for some reason it froze up even after having a block heater and fuel was treated. . good news is the snow blower attached to it runs and that hasnt been started in a year. only bad part is we cant do anything with it untill the tractor is running. if i had a cmera i would take pics. but it is in cleveland with my wife.

We got about an inch of sleet and freezing rain here last night. I don't mind snow at all, but this ice sucks ass! it was in the upper 30's today which melted it so that the 10* temps tonight will turn everything into an ice rink. fun,fun!

No snow and no ice, BUT it sure is cold.
Low 40's during the day, 20's and 30's at night.
Humidity and wind are making it worse.

Temps should be in the high 50's and low 60's.

It's time for this stupid weather to be over!!

We've got about 4 inches more snow. Slightly wet and heavy so we were exhausted while we showeled it off the driveway today.. Both have had the same pneumonia this week.. Still coming down more.

Totally we have about a 15-20" now...
