Rich, hope your roads are passable and all is safe and warm. And, I hope Hawkeye, et al, have a warm cabin in Can-tuk-ee with a good supply of firewood.

She said she had six inches by noon. Betty said Wisconsin probably got a foot or more and was down into the sub teens and twenties with windchill factored in. Brrrr. And we are MOVING there?

You don't get in the neck like those up country, but when you do get it, it's that much more of a misery.

: Those days are going to end soon. I bought an arctic parka at the Army/Navy store - same kind we had for winter warfare training in Alaska in winter. I'm prepared!!!!
: Bet there will be MANY Huron and frontiersmen at Doc's door looking to be warmed up this night!!!!
