Dude, I live in Minnesota. That's April. Seriously. This entire state is ice. I think it's 2 feet thick on every pond and lake right now.

I've drilled through 4 feet to ice fish here before.

The wind is blowing at 20 mph and it's 10 F right now. Got 8 inches of snow today.

No Thanks!

Saw hail yesterday early am when the cold front blew thru. That has been it so far this winter for frozen type stuff.

I been putting off mowing the grass in the back yard but may break down and get it done today. Tall grass makes it hard to find and remove the gifts my dogs leave for me there.

You guys can have that weather. The only ice I want comes out of the fridge or cooler. We get ice and everything shuts down for a week to 10 days, including the electricity. The pine trees shed their limbs like a long hair cat does with hair.

The fun part was thunder and lightning with that ice storm. Confused my kids and my dogs a bit.

Came down at times in little pellets like in a snow cone.

Al Gore says it is due to global warming.

Yeah, the thundersnow/ice was pretty cool...from a weather perspective. It was a pain in the ass from any other perspective.

It's too cold for an old man(me). This morning at 7am it was 7F but it has warmed up to 12F now...no wind though.

If you can digest this - https://landscheidt.wordpress.com/20...omentum-graph/

Global warming is BS - and 'things' do travel fast than light! Stay warm!
