    It is very cold and windy here at the training grounds in Niland, CA . Hope it warms up for our Trial this weekend. Lots of water so I assume it is humid making it feel colder. Very cold at my home in Scottsdale, AZ.

    It was 39/15, with gusty winds up to 25 mph, at my house. That is very cold for this area.

    Been in the 70's the last 3 days in North Cackolackey. We would kill to see some cold. We need a good cold front to bring some new birds in.

    We will be there Saturday. Hope it warms up. It should start warming up a bit here in Arizona starting tomorrow. With this kind of cold, I would at least once like to see some snow in my yard. I don't think it has EVER snowed in Gilbert. But we actually needed a good freeze for a change to kill off some of the critters that have been overpopulating the area with such mild winters lately; namely, scorpions, ticks, spiders, all forms of crawly things.

    A small group of us got together and did water marks on Saturday here in Bristol,TN it was like 72. I know that several of our out of shape dogs were breathing hard on the land marks. Its crazy to even think about water work here until mid March if its warm.

    Our HRC club did an upland training day on Sunday. I believe it got up to 24 degrees!!! Went from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm with a bunch of diehards and a great group of dogs.

    At Lake Almanor near Chester in NE California ... below 0 at night. 3 or 4 F at 7:00 am. Gets to 20s-low 30s in the afternoon. So cold the snow we got within the past week won't melt. Pipes in the well house, pipes at the outside garage, and water lines to the bird pens froze and burst yesterday. Heater went out in the well house and heat wrap tape could not keep up. New heater in the well house and Don has been fixing and replacing pipes and water lines for 2 days. Had to take a 5 gal. bucket of water to the bird pens through waist high snow. The water line to the bird pens is now new and working. Supposed to have sun and "warmer" weather for the next 5 days. Probably means at night it will be 10-15 degrees.
