Well, I live where there's BIG snow, but it's so common we take it for
Nonetheless, the dog story reminds me of my dog's problem during a similar
cold snap last year. After dragging his undercarriage through the snow and
getting it wet, he would sit out and watch the world (can you say numbnuts?)
go by. Succeeded in getting a good case of frostbite on his penis sheath.
Vet said it wasn't that unusual, and given his reaction to licking the
salve, I don't think he did it for the rub....
Let's hope not.
Thank your lucky stars, Yack! I got half an inch on my truck roof and
hood the day after Christmas but none stuck to the ground. It's 23F
out there right now. Hmmm, this place _is_ colder than LoCal. ;)

We are bracing for Old Man Winter, it is raining and expecting 1" of ice follow
by snow later. This morning I refilled my propane tank, buy 5 gal kerosene to
prepare for expected power outages. The icy-mix will be more severed than the

My wife came back early, and everyone at her office has taken leave for
tomorrow. Schools within the metropolitan close early for this "Big" one.
We are bracing for this BIG ONE! Anyone need free lumbers? :-)

Got to love that Ohio Valley weather, if you don't like it, wait a

me into the deep, soft, white stuff stop rocking back and forth on his
When I delivered papers there were a few bad winters where we
hooked the mutt to the sled and let him pull the paper bag. Temperatures
in the teens, papers probably out weighted him four or five to one,
atleast six inches of snow, otherwise we would have been on bikes.
He enjoyed it, but one day it was too cold and his feet got to bleeding;
we made him ride the rest of the way.
He would have much rather kept pulling.
'course we was kids back then.
