And that there, is why I like my winters. I may have to plow a little snow, but danged if I can't always put another layer of clothes on if I get a chill, not much a guy can do to cool off but sit in the A/C when it gets that hot.

Just one more reason to play with the tractors.... & driving on ice minimizes tire wear on your vehicles. Added bonus, you get better gas mileage when you can only safely run 40 MPH. :P

Just curious, what time is it down there on the opposite side of the planet? 2:48 AM here, just got off 2nd shift.
