    I grew up in Kitsap County and lived there full time until I retired. Signs like this, are why I now winter in AZ.

      Dwain, is that Fahrenheit or Celsius?

        ....and despite the Martianlike temperatures on the board, those trees in the background are holding up rather well!!

          Brrrrr. We have had our first high temps this year in the 60's and we Yuma natives are bundled up.

            Now that's cold! That isn't snow in the picture, it's dry ice!

            It was -30 C, when I got up this morning. Snapping cold. And I have snow to shovel. Once I've gotten 3 cups of coffee in me, I may go out and plug in the block heater on the tractor. Or not.

              near zero in NW WA

              That sign was too funny!! It was about 7 degrees round here last night, I know it gets colder elsewhere, but this is a rare temp for here.

                In the low 70's here in Georgia today. I know. I'm evil.

                  Well, I plugged the tractor in for over an hour, went out and hit the starter, and got nothing but a clunk. The battery is OK, because the little tell-tale for the glow plugs lit up brightly enough, and quickly enough.

                  I'll leave it plugged in overnight, and try it again in the morning. If it's still stuck, I guess I'll have to tarp it over, and put a Tiger torch in a joint of stove pipe under the engine.

                  Weather is supposed to moderate in a couple of days anyway, but I won't hold my breath for that.
