Ya, that's just the steam coming out of it. There's a big icicle on the wall next to it that came frome the steam, lol. On the screened in porch too, lol

My dumb **** came up here to the house in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg for the week, should have gone down to the condo at the beach on the Gulf. 30s down there, but 30s are better than 3, lolollo.

Of course they're not "little" anymore like when we used to talk Nate. They're 14 going on 15 and the little one turns 13 in a few weeks.

Jez, don't remind me, I'll probably have to buy them cars. lol.

Oldest one is already breaking me, hes a math nerd like my boy. Oldest one already has decided he wants to be an electrical engineer, and is working on it at school. Is already in the STEM Academy doing 12th grade math stuff and just started 9th grade this year.. I figure that's going to be a couple 100 thousand right off the bat because I already promised him I'd take care of school if he'd work to get there. Should have kept my mouth shut, lol.

Only thing I can hope for is that maybe they'll take care of me when I get too old to function, lol. 'Which probably wont be long, lol. Maybe they'll come by and wipe my **** and bring me a 12 pack and have a couple with me.

This morning I woke up to -12 outside.
We've been in a super-cold streak for over a week and it is forecasted to be around for another week or so.

It's brutal out there! Decent one bedrooms can range from $1300 to over $1500 a month. Some include heat and hot water, some don't.

I had 1 on the way to work this morning and now this is coming for Thursday! Another station is calling for 12-15 inches. Still early, so it could go higher. Or lower.

Eff that!! You need to move down South with the rest of us good folks, lol. Hell, for $1500 a month you could buy a 2-3 thousand sq ft house, or get a smaller house on 10 acres, LOL.

We've been dealing with about -10 degrees every night for over a week now, almost 2 weeks.
Got up to a balmy 24 degrees today, just as we get a blizzard dumped on us.
13" of snow so far, and it's expected to drop another 1-2" before it stops.
Then, winds of up to ~50 mph overnight, and back to super-cold for a few days.
WTF?????

The snow has stopped here but the wind seems to be howling more now than with the storm earlier. Those single digit high temps and wind chills will be brutal this weekend!

Yeah, the cold is gonna suck.

We ended up with 15" of snow.
Heading out shortly to start clearing out the driveway, the wife's Subaru and my truck, the deck off the back of the house, and I also always make paths to the propane tank, the oil-fill, the generator, and the compost bin.
Yay.

Rocker Tom Petty died in October due to "multisystem organ failure" brought on by an accidental overdose of seven medications, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner's office said on Friday.
