Come on out to AZ. We had 82 yesterday, just 68 today and I think 72 tomorrow! Sorry but the Chamber of Commerce makes us say that. We try and forget about the 115+ summers

Going back in time my grandfathers were pioneers In MI starting in the 1850s around

the Houghton Lake area getting free land from service in the Revolutionary and Civil wars.

 

They were farmers, lumberjacks and blacksmiths and reading old documents and looking at

old photos they cut wood every spare minute they had just to survive the winter.

 

I took my first trip to MI 2 yrs ago to see the old homesteads and thought I'd like to retire

there then my wife set me strait...

 

"Yer a California boy and don't know what cold is!"

 

I think she is right and I wouldn't like it but it sure is pretty country!

Same here in WNY. Single digit temps, gusty (40mph) winds with occasional 2-3 inch per hour snowfalls. But the ponies are in safe hibernation.

 

Luckily, the local ski areas finally have enough coverage so I'm finally off to the slopes with some good friends. We meet up 3-4 days a week to get out of the house and get a workout for the next couple months. If you have the proper clothing, its not bad at all.

 

Our winter seasons are probably what make WNY local and cruise events so well attended from May- Oct.

I think winters sucks too.. The days are shorter, not many day hours before it gets dark, I don't like it. But we don't have any snow here right now, very nice! We have + degrees, it's a mild winter this year. Right now we have a huge storm coming in called Dagmar.. :)

Yes, winter really sucks! I just got done snowblowing the driveway. Burr! I used to love winter till I got in a head on snowmobile accident. I can't ride anymore so I got back into cars. I had a 67 Chevelle for 29 years & had to sell it. Got my Mach 1 last spring & love it Anyways, I do miss riding, but I miss driving my car more! Think spring.

I don't really care for the cold weather myself. All I want to do is hunker down and hibernate like an old wooly bear.

 

But, check this out. This guy is having some fun in the snow.

Sorry, I can't read anymore of this thread. Just reading about the cold makes me cold. I have to go get a blanket now!

Cold here too, but lately we've had very cold but sunny days. One upside to colder weather to me is the cooler, denser air and my car loves it!

Greetings from balmy San Antonio... we think it's cold here since it's stayed in the 40's the last couple of days. I think we'll hit low 50's today. It's messing with my golfing now! It's the summers that sometimes wreak havoc on us here.

John,

Have grown up in Clinton township I remember the nasty weather well. I left for the southwest at 20 and never looked back. Atleast you have those wonderful fall days!

Growing up in Akron Ohio I remember it raining Christmas eve circa 1959.

Thought that was weird. A week later it was 30 below zero.

Here near San Jose, CA it is 32 in the morning and 75 in the afternoon.

Winter for us means lots of rain, hopefully, and a good Sierra snow pack

the source of our water supply. Rain runs back to the ocean to be recycled.

We have four seasons; wet season, dry season, earthquake season and cold.

I agree, winter still suck's! I'm in the same boat, 3-6 in on Super Bowl Sunday. Oops, not supposed to say Super Bowl. It is nice to have the low price for gas, just hope it stays that way this summer. I think the gas in my Mach was $4.00 a gal. Come on spring!
