A View From Our Lane


Marilyn and I were half way up our lane, and it was almost dark, when I took this picture last night. My Canon corrected for available light.
We are almost giddy here in the Tekamah area. The forcasted highs for the next seven days are all in the thirties. That my friends, is above the freezing mark. A bikini watch has been posted. We've put away the Christmas (er,,I mean Holiday) catalogs and are thumbing thru the garden catalogs. Is it too early to put in peas?

All that beautiful (but cold) snow! They predicted snow for us but we only got rain! (Okay by me!). It's 27 here now and tonight is going down to 15. Ouch!

Is Marilyn going to get out her bikini?

I think I'd hold off on peas a little while longer and get back to the CHRISTMAS catalogs!

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW???

Oh, Lord. I'm originally from Chicago and have experienced wind chills of -85 deg living in Wisconsin. The seat on the pickup cracked when I sat on it and the furnace never quit running. I worried that if it did that ....

It was 10 deg in Dallas last night - no snow - but, the hot tub is great before bed. Arrraugh.

Same here!! Ten inches on our front steps!! -3 on Thursday night. That's an outstanding picture, by the way.

My First Wife and I were outside talking for a couple of minutes. It was so cold, our words froze in mid-air. We had to take them inside and thaw them out so we could hear what we were saying.

Our current temp is 23 degrees. (Noon) Nice.

Cliff,
Glad to hear that we aren't the only ones with cold weather. It has been -15 to -20 here in Montana for the last week and a half. It finally warmed up to 37 above today (1:30 Mountain time). Norma and I were getting ready to move back to Alaska to warm up.

And now the weather report from Colorado - two days of high temperatures in the single digits. Wind chill ranged from -12 to -23. Warmed up today though, we are up to 20 degrees.
Just think only about three months of this left.

Cliff, you have lost your mind. Yep, that's it.

It's gonna be a long winter, Cliff. At least you got the right attitude to get you through it. I'm in Tulsa...in denial that there's snow around my house back home.

At least it doesn't look like the time I was visiting and we had to call the county guys--Was that for the bikinis or the snow?

ok it is pretty, but cold as hell and then it melts and is messy. i don't miss that stuff at all!!! so glad i moved away from that stuff but at least it looks more like x-mas. here in arizona it gets chilly but warm during the day and it doesn't feel like x-mas at all.

Cliff, we are getting some of your weather here on Long Island NY. It was a brisk low 30's with wind chill yesterday, but we had sleet and snow and freezing rain and plain rain here too! A real weather montage. We too are looking for things to "warm up" into the high 30's, it feels like winter out there! This past week it has gone down to the teens at night, scary right?:

OOOOO MAN I am gunna steal this picture and use it for my desktop, OK so yes I do still pretend ok.

That snow really is pretty. Your picture is very enticing. You did good on it.
Since we haven't come up there yet this fall, Sister suggested we come in January. We would like to ski Iowa.
She said wait till after a snow, come while it isn't snowing, and then it will snow for sure while we're there.
The farmers would like all that moisture, right?
And that will be fine with us. One problem, I can't teach Mrs. Jim to push when the car gets stuck.
