    I wish you guys would keep that cold stuff up north. It is going to be 19 here Thurs night. Ugh! And the water was just starting to warm up. The water temp was only 46 yesterday morn late. When it reached 50 I was going to start water work again with a vest.

    Just when I thought it was cold enough it is about to get colder! Out today training in 0F weather. Did only 5 marks but the winds (even though in a protected area) were brutal. Tonight blowing snow with poor visibility out there. Like everyone else, I have had enough!!! Keep warm everyone. Soon it will be March.

    Wayne, we are keeping the cold stuff up here, 19 would be considered a heat wave.

    Guess I am thankful I live in Texas. I lived in ND for three years and the winters were awful.

    Wayne you would not last to long up here. Cold yes but some of the best retrievers in the nation come out of Minnesota. You should try training in -10 degrees. Bumpers covered in a sock so they do not stick to the mouth of the dog.
    P.S. Don't lick a metal pole.

    YM, I don't think I would want to train in -10 deg weather. Maybe that is why some of the big names come south for the winter.

    Well if you live at the North Pole, I'd expect nothing less!

    I know I couldn't survive. Another front pushing through, Bout to get cold here again Monday and Tuesday.

    Climate change is here! High of 53 today, low of 10 on Monday. No snow anywhere on the horizon and we are dying for it. You guys are just greedy with all that white stuff!
