    Going back to work tomorrow, today was a genuine roll in a rats nest. I hope I'm done with that part, I think I am.

    We actually woke up this morning to a light dusting of snow. Wish it were more, but, I'll take it.

    they said 1 inch and then rain and 40s to 50s...

    more like 5 inches and it's not raining and it's below freezing, so, that snow is staying

    Got a package from Amazon in the mail yesterday, addressed to me. I have a few items ordered from there, so assumed it was something I ordered. Opened it up, and my son sent me a Victorinox Huntsman in hardwood for Christmas. He knew I was talking about getting one, as the scales from my Vic Camper are falling off, haha. I wanted the Huntsman, because it's the same as the Camper, but has scissors, which come in handy from time to time.

    I found weather that exceeds my cold tolerance -- went to visit mom up in Minnesota for a few days.
    left this afternoon because it was supposed to be a touch chilly tomorrow and I didn't want to drive in temps that make old metal even more brittle.

    415 miles south to SWMBO's apartment just outside DesMoines where it was 16F -- and at that same time it was -16F at mom's.
    (tomorrow is supposed to be COLD -- so is most of the upcoming week with lows in the -25 to -30F range before wind chill)

    Yikes, that is cold. Not so bad out here. Only -10ºC as the high next week. Got another 10cm of snow last night. Proper white Christmas for a change. Dogs are loving it!

    Merry Christmas to everyone.

    I think it brushed freezing last night, up to 35F right now.

    Stay warm and for those traveling, stay safe.

    there is a light dusting here at SWMBO's -- at home they got 3" or so, which will probably be gone when I get back tomorrow -- but at least I'll have muddy dogs to brush, so there is that, right? ;)

    went to go see last jedi - caught the 11:20 showing this morning.
    when we came out, the sun was gone, the wind had picked up, and it was a touch chilly.
    got back to SWMBO's apartment and she made me a pan of chicken enchilada's while I talked to dad on the phone.


    p.s. no kabar or becker cutlery sightings in the movie. :(

    -17ºC here this morning. Feels like -28ºC with the wind chill. Dogs are loving it!

    @1066vik What did you think of the movie. There have been some very interesting negative reviews.

    This is the more outdoorsy stuff I got this year. Snugpak Jungle Blanket, Isla Del Sol cigars, temperature gauge for my smoker, Streamlight key light, oven mitts, and a Vic Huntsman:
