Keep it over there, please. It's -1 here, right now, and supposed to keep going up. An old timer in southwestern Maine got the news that a land survey had been done and he actually lived in New Hampshire. His response? "Thank God, I don't think I could've taken another Maine winter"! F.

Your a lucky man to have Oak to burn Doug, course, I've said for a long time if God had intended man to live in Interior Alaska he would have planted oak trees up here. Had to make a run to Fairbanks today, left here at -45, before I got to Delta, halfway pt, picked up a tail wind of about 40mph and warmed to -7. About -10 in Fairbanks, tail wind turned into head wind on the way home and back to -40ish here..Sooo, The cold you have now isn't mine yet, cause it ain't left..

-31 here this morning at 0800. Didn't get above -20 all day yesterday and today is supposed to be a carbon copy. Must not be that cold in MPLS/St.Paul, because they haven't called off school yet. That's what I really get a kick out of. Don't matter how cold it gets in Northern MN, but when those temperatures hit our State Capital, previous governers have called a State of Emergency. They claim it's not safe for the kids in that cold, and we need to save our heating fuel. Guess those in Northern MN don't need to worry about our kids or saving fuel until they feel the crunch in St. Paul! :D:D:D BOY! Warmed up by two degrees while I was typing this! -29 and climbing!
