    I know it is a bit cold everywhere. And some places are worse then we actually are. But, we have absolutely no wind break anywhere near our home. We are literally smack dab in the middle of a cornfield lol.. Our real temp at the moment is -9 no wait -11 just changed. And the Wind Chill temp is -43. Trying to get the shop/garage heated, but heater has been going for near 1-1/2 hours and has not shut off. Sure hope we don't lose electricity up in here.

    I am in Ohio. Looking at possibly 50 below -14 later today, and as low as -19 coming. But, on the bright side it is supposed to hit 40 on Saturday. Until then, it's gonna be beyond Cold that's for sure. All local government offices, schools, post offices etc.. Closed. I think Fed Ex and UPS is still running, but not completely certain of that. No notification otherwise. Will find out about 1:30 when my Express lady usually shows up..

    Thank you sir, this old boy ain't going nowhere for the next few days unless I am forced to go.. Can't say never I have done that a few times, and usually proved to be a liar lol.. Something comes up that ends up being a emergency so, I'll just say I have no intention of going anywhere.

    You folks up in Cold Country stay safe and warm. I grew up near Lake Erie on a farm and am familiar with lake effect snow and sub-zero wind chills. One of the main reasons I never went back after joining the Corps.

    I'm headed to the range today to test fire my new M1A. But it's a bit chilly outside (supposed highs in the mid-60s today) and I might have to put a flannel shirt on over my t-shirt. ;)

    I am in my garage and have a Thermal shirt on, a flannel over that and a fleeced Hoodie on top lol.. 2 heaters running that won't shut off. Overhead Garage doors wedged out against the weather seal.
