    It's a frigid 60 degrees right now. I see people running around in parkas.

    There is about a 30 MPH wind an was like -19 last night In southern WI we had snow over new years. bad drifting to day on the ride home

    A couple of days ago antfreese froze in my pickup an I was sitting along side the road with a over heated engin an no heat in the truck. I had a pretty heated discussion yesterday with Valvoline who did a radiator flush this fall Aparently they dont like it when yo drive the truck in trough the exit door an park it side ways in a stall an ask/ demand to see a manager .

    one of my biggest fears here is a bad ice storm or loss of power in these conditions . That an Zombies

    Were you giving him crap in capital letters 1biggun!!

    Make's me think I'd better double check mine again just for shits. There calling for as low as -30, -35 tonight in some places around here ,, no wind though, so that will help some. Not bad right now but dropping fast,dropped 12-13 degrees in about 2 hours.

    I did get my limit of crappie though,,they WERE ON!! YES!!! That will put about 15 lbs of fillets in the freezer,,OK 12 then,,we'll eat 3 tonight probibley!!

    Keep them fires burning folks and stay warm.

    And for you Southern boys,,when was the last time you saw this?

    We fared well here as far as snow fall, got 5-7", but shortly after it stopped the temps drops from the upper 20's to about 10, the wind chill is making it feel like low single digits to just under -0.

    I about took my hydrometer an shoved it were the sun didn't shine on him. . Guy wanted to start arguing asking if id added to it an crap. I was in no mood . took me three start ups a heat ups to get the the radiator to thaw enough to drive it home . I had to put it inside my buddys shop to get the new heater core I jsut had installed prior to doing a radiator flush thawed . ( reason for the flush)

    I think they drained the radiator never flushed anything an never got the coolant out of the block or any were else then added there pre mix .

    normally I do all this my self .

    Yea guy's check your coolant protection . I got damn cold along side the road

    Well, I lucked out last night, only got about a foot. Places only 20-30 miles away from me got over two feet.
    Cold as a witches tit though. Temp just under 0 and winds in the 30's. Around -26 windchill according to the MILF on channel 5.
    Tim, That 50 degrees would feel pretty good right about now, Hell that's T-shirt weather.

    There's another front coming through the mid west states of Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin Sunday & Monday. Temps are got to be from minus teens to minus 20s, with wind chills of -50 to -60
    Snow is to start sometime Sunday in the mid west, and can get as far south as Tennessee & Alabama.

    Buncha wimps Here in *South* Dakota it's gonna be -20 the next couple of days. We don't do wind-chill, that's for sissies lol. Glad I'm not in North Dakota, Minnesota or Wisconsin!
