Before the hip replacement I used to love it, the colder the better. Even used to plan on living in Alaska. Now I think of warm states and am inside most of the winter unless it is to go to the doc's, relatives or my Wife wants company while she drives around doing errands. Don't even get to go outside and play with the dogs for a hour a day like I used to be able to do up until about 4-5 years ago. I miss liking it and not having it keep me locked up all winter.

Winter here is *long*, Derek... but it's warmer here in the winter than there most of the time. Usually 10-25F with no wind. Winter's late breaking up though. Even now we've got snow in uncleared areas although if it keeps hitting 45F like it did today, it won't be for much longer!

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

With a little good luck it'll stay warm for a few days until they hatch and them promptly freeze. If that happens a couple of times during the transition, the summers bugs will be down by 50% or so.

I haven't seen mosquitos yet,but saw my first fly today... on the outside of the window of my 4th floor office. If it stays warm they'll either hatch today or tomorrow. That's when I've got the cold snap ordered... after lots of eggs hatch but before they can reproduce.

We headed on down towards the colder temps again after last weekend's 64F. I didn't pay attention to the forecast so thought I would be able to be outside with the dogs even if it was too wet for the golf cart yet.

Hardly any snow yet in the front yard and the lot in the middle of the cul-de-sac is cleared even though that is where most of the snow ends up getting pushed to by the city and the guys hired to plow driveways. It doesn't have anything shading it so it gets the sun all day whereas my front yard only really gets it from noon on or so.

Haven't checked out back yet...too worried I am going to see one huge mud pit as the yard got a lot driving on towards the end of the fall because we were still doing projects there. Afraid I am going to end up re-seeding it and re-sodding part of the front due to winter kill and dog traffic. Only 20-30 rolls for the front, which is why we will re-sod instead of seed. Have to do it every few years as the dogs and the ice kill off a bit more each winter. No fun for me as I used to be a landscaper as a kid and I only get to watch it done and not allowed to complain if it doesn't get done to my standards. That rule got laid down to me a long time ago...any complaints then no workers I was told I had to go by my Wife's and best friends judgment what looked good even if it was terrible
