67 here yesterday, 54 this morning. Snowing now, expecting around 1" accumulation. Temps plummeting to 11 tonight with wind chill around -7. Warming up to 24 through the day tomorrow, 13 tomorrow night. Perfect weather to go along with the worst head cold I've had in ages. Brass monkey left for South America I do believe.

Blowin outa the north and about 8 degrees right now...6:30. Cancel my below reply about heating the skid steer. It's supposed to warm to the mid 30's by sunday, so I said to heck with it!
My brass monkey died of old age a year ago!

So what's the big deal. That's not cold. Finally cooled back down to around 20 today. Great day to haul manure out of the feedlots. Didn't have to chase it all over. Supposed to be in the single digits tonight,windchills around zero tomorrow. Just feels a little more like winter.
I'll take this any day of the week over the 40s and 50s we had the last two days with constant rain. I don't care who you are,when it's in the 40s and 50s and you're wet,you're cold. I can dress for zero and as long as I'm dry,I'm comfortable.

Should only get to 15 below, but the wind isn't going to let up until afternoon. Got up to minus 2 today, but the wind is the miserable part.

Ya for Missouri it is cold but I have seen it a whole lot colder in Missouri. Seen it in the 10-20 below before but not in many years. But I also tend to think back when ever I think it is cold to doing top side watch on a sub in Scotland in Jan. Now that is cold or worse when we did an arctic run on that same sub now that was more then just cold

Ah but the cold we have now days sure does not seem to be like it was in days past. I still remember times of opening up the front door and grabbing the shovel just to get off the front porch due to snow being so deep

We had one of those winters just two years ago. The boy and I worked til noon with two tractors one day just getting enough snow moved to get the gates open and driveways and feedbunks cleaned out so we could start to feed cattle. About a week later it all blew right back in from the other direction. Most snow I've had since the bad one in 78.

Interesting comment, Old. I made some of the first runs out of Scotland on the 601. Later, we lived in Innelan, about 10 miles down the Clyde River, for a couple of years. Loved it there.

That night doing that top side watch the midnight to 4AM watch it was raining at the level the sub was at but you could watch the mountain tops and see them getting white with snow. It was one cold night. You say the 601 as in Sub number or ??? I was on the SSBN633
