Let me see. -3 and +3 averages out to 0 degrees. That means there is no temperature.   ???

Yeah, it got up into the teens here yesterday also and sun. But that is gonna change Thursday with a blizzard. Oh well, a week of nice sunny weather, then some snow work, can't complain too much. :D

Oh, seen where some big old 'yote left a deer leg on my property line, which is also where I make a snowshoe trail. That leaves two deer, although they have not been on the woodlot. The leg probably came from over in Maine, just about 500 yards away. Have not seen the moose for awhile.

-10 this morning and bright sun. Coldest here yet. That means a warm up coming for a storm brewing.  ;D

Radio said 8* this morning with negative 9 windchill but there isn't any wind really, feels like a heat wave, Sunday is suppose to hit 35, don't know if I'll be allowed (legally) to shed enough clothes for that  :D.

Brookside Inn? Is that at the entrance to the freeway,just a little before the Amish store?
Kinda odd temps. We went to the granddaughter's basketball game,they won!! Was at least 16. About 10 minutes away it was 10 than dropped down to 6 a few more minutes. I wanted to turn the car around and head back where we came from.  ;D

Suppose to get 87 mph wind gust, a bit of snow and 2 inches of rain tomorrow.

Power company is expecting outages, some people around here lost power for 4 or 5 days from the last big wind on Christmas day, hoping I get by again.

Yes, it is near the I95 exit and the Amish store. We quite often eat there, and take a ride down by the store and the buffalo and around by Ward cabin mill and down around Island Falls by the windmills. We can't get over all the farm land that has been abandoned. One little garden and green house isn't feeding too many folks. A long cold ride to Houltan for the groceries.  ;D

That is about a 4 hour ride for us. But it's a nice ride. I forgot the route number now. We just go. Maybe 2.
Well we know it can get in the 20's. 0 here now.

Funny here of late no comments of global warming from Florida to Maine. Maybe it went away ? The alligators in Alabama are growing fur coats .

 Had 5F here this morning and to warm up into the upper 20's. I'm exited about next week, the forecast showed 50 one day and 55 the next day. Hope the weather man don't change his mind!
