    I built a small fire last nite to knock the chill outta the house.

    Got home from work and it was raining outside, the house was a cool damp 64 degrees,,

    Does that make me a sissy? :confused2:

    Burning here! I think this is the latest we have burned here so far. 40s and raining. The ground is beyond saturated, little ponds all over. Any big winds, now that we have leaf canopy, trees gonna come down.

    I'm still burning too, more now that the rains are drenching us. So far we've had a bit over 4 inches in the last 24 hours. (the weather service said we might get 6 tenths of an inch). N just think, it's supposed to rain for the next 6 days. On the other hand, imagine if all this rain were snow! :msp_scared:

    If one inch of rain is an equivalant to 12 inches of snow, all I can say is DAMN!:msp_scared:
    How many inches of snow would one inch of rain produce

    Thanks olyman. :rock:
    The whole story is I got home from work 'bout 2030 hrs. It's been raining all day, windy,,
    I changed clothes and went out to the go-rodge and swilled a cold frosty and started plucking nightcrawlers outta the fresh tilled garden. I've kept a worm box for fishin' worms for years and years. A few frosties later I had several dozen 'crawlers, had swilled 4 or 5 cold frosties, was cold and damp. A small fire in the OWB was just the ticket. That whole mass storage deal with the h2o works. By the time I got the kids on the bus this a.m. the house was 72, the OWB was outta firewood, the water lines cool in the furnace closet..And I beat the gas man!

    :blob4: :biggrinbounce2: :blob6: :blob2: :eek:uttahere2: :blob2:

    Yippee-yahoo... finally, finally, FINALLY I can say it...

    No fire here :rock:, ain't been one burning since Saturday morning :rock:... the sun came out 'round noon Saturday, melted all the snow, and it's pretty much been shining ever since. Temps have been in the 60's (even hit 71[sup]o[/sup] today), and with all that daytime solar energy the house stays plenty warm, even with the overnights dropping into the 40's.

    Nah-nah-na-nah-nah... I ain't burnin' but some of you are... Nah-nah-na-nah-nah!

    Short-sleeve shirts and cold beer here... I see the maples have started budding and I might even have to cut the grass by the end of the week... Nah-nah-na-nah-nah!
    (Oh wait, I hate cutting grass... but I'll take it like the man I am.)

    It don't take much to get me excited does it?? But lordy, I was starting to think it would never happen.

    Well, if it's FINALLY spring at the New North Pole where y'all are, then all of us are going to be experiencing a warming trend in the next week! :msp_biggrin:

    Now I could get yu really excited and show a picture of one of my boobs but I'm afraid y'all might have a heart attack or stroke. Too much excitement you know.:laugh:

    :laugh: For a moment I was going to grab my camera and get a shot, but, I decided against it. I can't be having y'all getting all hot n bothered this early in the season. After all, the chainsaws are still running and I don't want y'all to get distracted. :msp_biggrin:
