    Getting pretty damn cold here in the midwest this weekend and early next week. Monday is suppose to be only -1 for the high, with 30 mph winds.:eek: Bundle up fellas, coldest weather that we have seen in years is coming. We are paying for all that nice weather in December now.

    I don't care if we get the cold weather. Just bring some snow in with it.If it is going to be cold then let it snow.

    SURE HOPE WE DON'T GET A SALTING EVENT. AT THESE TEMPS, THE SALT IS ALMOST INEFECTIVE. SURE WISH SAND WASN'T OUTLAWED IN THESE PARTS.:cry:

    The city doesn't want the costs in clean up. Generally around here the temps never fall lower than the teens for daytime highs, where salt is very effective. I guess it dosn't help that the city of Windsor sits on a salt mine. I'm sure many of you have used Windsor Salt (yellow and black bags). Well keep those trucks pluged in and pray your batteries are good, talking for snow the next few days. C-1 or maybe a 1-3.

    Keep warm

    -1?

    Bubba, we have had -20F four of the last seven. AND I am sure it is worse towards Montana and Alberta.

    You got "Global Warming"!:dizzy:

    cold here too

    It's been cold here too. Highs around -15 celsius. Warm yesterday with a high at 0 but -25 on monday. It's only Global warming when temps are ABOVE frezzing so they can prove their point. But, we'd better not get started on the tree-huggers...

    Do you guys use dry gas when it gets this cold so the gas lines wont freeze?
