20 degrees at my house this morning and i'm about 10 miles from the gulf of mexico. maybe the cold will set back the mosquito population.

It was 1*F this AM at my house, coldest I can ever remember anywhere, any time. Wind was brutal overnight, too.

Very thankful to have R16 in the walls, and a garage for the car.

I'm not sure that the cold has any impact on mozzie populations. The mosquitoes are thick in the Cascades every summer and they are under a dozen feet of snow for 6 months of the year.

Hang in there folks. This is a winter the old timers in the midwest will recognize.

8 F this morning which seems pretty moderate considering the sub-zero weather we had last week.

Yup. A week of rain, rain, only interupted by more rain and a few degrees above the freezing mark. Perfect riding weather

We almost ran out of temperature last night. It went down to 4 F. 9 is the projected high with a low of 2 tonight. We're on the verge of running out of temperature completely and may end up running a deficit, caught in the polar vortex.
Trainer in the basement. Too much salt on the roads for outside.

Has anyone experienced cryoseism yet?

Several reports from Canada today. When rocks crack from freezing weather, that's when you know its really cold.

That's about what we had in Bolivar. Unusually cold for this area. Back to the mid-30 today.

23 degrees when i rode to work and the roads were covered in ice. it rained and sleeted all night. the whole area is shut down. definitely uncommon for this area but a fun change. i rode the mtb to keep from falling on my ass.
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.

Worse than a frozen penis? A thawing out frozen penis. I did a cross country ski race in the late 70's in Winnipeg into a headwind for 15 km at -35C or so. I was fine until thawing occurred.

thanks LSD; don't know how we'd survive this winter without it. and it's solid when well below zero.
