I had one stop in Pella,IA and one in Wasau, WI for today. Man, I don't know how you folks do it up here. Get me back to Texas - I wasn't made for this kind of weather!

Wind chill here around Chicago was -50 is some places, this morning it was -24 by my house.

Maybe my sister has it right, Phoenix looks better and better. If only someone could do something about those pesky mountains I'd be there in a heart beat.

I’ve been bundled up like that for two days now. Nothing but my eyes showing.

I kinda wish I was up there, I just want to see how well I could handle the cold. But instead I'm in LA right now so I wish you all the best of luck xD

Like some vehicles, I just run hot no matter what I do. Yesterday the forklift operator loading me was all bundled up, dressed for bear. I was in a t-shirt throwing straps and tarps with sweat running down my face.

I'll take the cold any day over the summer heat.

But I hear ya OS, the negative temps up by you are ridiculous right now.

One time several years ago, I was at my parents place in northern Wisconsin, was so cold that I left the truck running overnight with anti gel in the tanks, woke in the morning to it not tunning,,,, gelled up while running!
