    -26 at 11:00pm. Not as bad as a few nights ago...-40.

    When it got to -40, all of the diesel pumps at all of the gas station around here were gelled up.

    Wow GunDr, your up in MN right? That is one of the many states I cover and I told my employees I won't be back until late March lol. I hadn't driven my diesel for a couple of days till today and even though it was plugged in the engine really did not like the idea of having to run lol.

    That's right, I don't care if they say it's a "dry heat", 90 degrees is too hot...I'll take 25 in central Iowa over "85-90" in Florida or California. Though it's been hovering right around -10 here for a couple of days with -25 to -30 wind chill, which kind of keeps me from taking off on the sled. But, it's supposed to warm up this weekend and get into the 30's : ) so the plan is to take a little trip on the sled then. Looking forward to getting back to shooting again though. Josh

    Here in Mpls at this hour, -18F.

    Speaking of cold, anyone know if this has an effect on shells? I didn't see one misfire this fall until this month when several happened on the same day. Just wondered...

    If you live on the North Pole , cold is one thing. If you live on the Equater it's some thing else. I know temps from both. We dont get temps like the +11 here very often , but we see +100 alot more ,so if I said Dang its hot you might not understand. If you dont like the Va temp, wait a week it will change. Jeff

    At least temporarily it put a cork in Al Gore but it sounds like Obama is all gung ho to do something about the global warming that we're suffering from. What a bunch of dumb a-----.

    Global warming: -9 when I woke up here in northeast Ohio. Sun is shining which is rare. Got to go out and feed the birds since I'm retired. Then, clean some guns and reload. Don't let your pipes freeze. Darrell
