    Saw on the news that our Michigan brothers are in for a super cold snap this weekend. (Hope those Benny’s are put away.) Temperatures 25 degrees below normal for this time of year. Probably have to put on a windbreaker on eh?!? Ha!

    Last year I was able to paint my house well into December and even one day in January. As such, I told my wife I would finish the rest of it this fall as I didn't want to waste a boating weekend during the summer. If things don't turnaround quickly, this little project just might get extended another year.

    My son is up in the U.P. for college, and his forecast is something like +/- 10 inches.

    lol Not our family. We are winter lovers! :cool:

    Downhill and cross country skiing. Ice skating. Snowmobiling. We are all in for big winters. Isn’t that a perk of living up north? :D

    My wife hates the cold and reminds me daily. You're lucky having a team who can enjoy all of the seasons!

    Used to be the same way when my wife's family lived in New England. Skiing in Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Colorado, Utah and even in Canada. Snowmobiling and ice skating on their lake. But to be honest gentlemen.......It wouldn't bother me a bit if I never saw snow again. I've had enough.

    Temp is 12 here in TC and about 2 inches snow on the ground. They were predicting more though and it seems to be quitting.

    Damn........too early for that crap! Snow 12, 14, 16 degrees? Not ready for that yet. Had to wear a windbreaker when I went to the gym at 6am. Ha! But It made it up to the mid 60’s. Still shorts weather.

    Got our cottage exterior Christmas lights ready today. I’ll keep the lights off until after Thanksgiving, but wanted to have it all wired up. Nothing too elaborate since its just the cottage, but I love Christmas decorations and lights. Here’s the sneak peak:

    Totally jealous! Probably won't get back to the cottage until TUT. With you having kids still in the house, I marvel that you can get away at all.
