    Well, we are under a freeze warning here in Columbus. Seems like we are already in winter mode with the cold temps we have had already in October. Hopefully this year will be just as good as I hear it might be.

    Yep we had frost here too the other morning and they said we had a hard freeze? I don't see it other than the grass has slowed a little bit. The flowers in front of the house still look good, so I am skeptical about the hard freeze.

    The website I posted above, they were seeing it on model runs and it was just a possibility. We will get our snow soon enough to early in the season for accumulating stuff here right now.

    i was outside trying out my brand new turbo heater that I found on craigslist. 125,000 BTU unit. orginal price $325 plus tax. I bought it for $160 out the door from some guy. He bought it. and never used at all. he just took it out of the box a couple of days ago. No more late nights in the shop freezing to death trying to fix something on the truck. Oh yeah while I was out there were little snow flakes falling from the sky.
