About 11:30 last night we had -22F, and this morning at 7:00 we had +12F.

Good to be on the "hot side" of Zero for a while anyway!

Now we have 16F and a slight breeze blowing outside, maybe 5mph or so.

Lot better than we've had in a while!

Sounds more like figures published about mountain pine beetle. That is why it is believed that the PB will not come east far on jack pine. I think it had pretty much stayed as far east as Alberta where the transition is from lodge pole to jack.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

I know I won't get much sympathy from my northern brothers, but it's going to get down to 5 or 10 here Monday or Tuesday. I like cold weather as much as the next but that is going to push the limit. We don't usually have temps like that. Now if I can just get a little snow.

Last night it was ten degrees when I got up this morning it was 16 now in the twentys. There calling for heavy snow and -17 the next few days. I went after the skidder this morning so I could plow snow drifts. I wanted to load logs but the wind is screaming out of the south and its cold but biggest factor, with know skidder on the job I did't want to take a chance getting hung up. They have been there a hundred years whats a few more days ;)

Slowly creeping up, it's now up to +30.

52 swing since last nights low of -22

I think it'll start cooling down as the sun goes down, so I'm not worried to much about the eves dripping!  ::)

Temps rose to double digits last night but with the wind it feels well below zero. Sunday thru Tuesday we have a wind chill watch for chill values of -55 to -60 F and more snow.

About 4-5" more white stuff overnight putting the seasons total at 160 inches and climbing.

The forecast here is -28F Monday night.  Everytime I check the forecast they've dropped it another degree.  I guess I had better stop checking... :laugh:.

I heard a discussion on the local radio talking about our unusual weather.
They were saying, in the past when it gets cold like this around here in early Jan...we can expect temps of75- 80 in late February or early March.  :o
