    Default Ok it's Official GDG

    NC has crazy weather! I Trained Sunday afternoon in short sleeve shirt and was sweating, 76 deg. I left for work Monday morning at 56 deg. Got home Monday night to 20 deg and 2 inches of snow and ice. Drove in this morning at 8 deg with rds covered in ice and snow. Forecast for the weekend is mid 60's!

    I admire your ambition to face the elements head-on to exercise your right to vote.

    a feller in Fairfax boiled 2 Sundays ago, made the local news. a few more have also. I am still all froze up, but all set. old timers never drilled a hole in a tree until Town Meeting Day (today) way back when. we are having an old time winter for sure.

    We were near or below zero with lots of wind and snow for a couple weeks. Now it's raining and 36, supposed to be in the 40s by the weekend. I imagine the valley snow will melt in a week or so. It could be march after all.
