With an inch of ice on everything - I'm really impressed that you could stand at all in your yard!

Hope you have a fireplace, and that the ice melts soon!

Don - around here, 57 degrees is classified as 'good sleeping weather'. It isn't even thought of as a one-dog night.

Maybe we can start you a coat drive...

60 -- Californians put on sweaters (if they can find them in their wardrobe).

50 -- Californians residents turn on the heat.

40 -- Californians shiver uncontrollably.

Yeah, sure, but surely Andy would rather have Crown and eggnog to a crown and sceptor. Who the heck wants to drink a sceptor?

This all reminds me of the short time I lived in Chicago--Winter of '76-'77--our Physics teacher was standing in our fieldhouse after school while we were at track practice. We asked him why he was there and he showed us something silver and shiny in his hand. Closer inspection showed that it was his car's door handle. His car had frozen shut-he could not get either door open and when he pulled too hard on the passenger door, it broke off in his hand. Now, that is c-c-c-c-o-o-o-o-l-l-l-d-d-d!

The thing that always puzzled me was--he was a physics teacher, he should have know that was going to happen at those temperatures. (Maybe I am thinking of a Metalurgical Engineer??!!)

I've seen that. Locally they do something similar (although it's not nearly that cold in Louisville, KY) and raise money for the Special Olympics.

In reply to:

Matches Dawnie's shoes really well.

And Michelle, when it was 74 on Monday and it went to 34 on Wednesday, it is cold enough.

I want some of that snow, no ice, for just a day or three so my kids can share some of my memories and I can watch the dog walk outside and think, "what the h*%% did he do to my yard?"

Ok folks..You're all cracking me up..and ticking me off!

WE HAVE NO SNOW AT ALL!!! IT'S 40 DEGREES OUTSIDE!!!!! MY SNOW-MACHINE HAS DUST ON IT!!!!!

This is unreal! We have only 5 hours of daylight..and what we do have is dreary and rainy! In Alaska! In December! I'm flying to Quebec for a freaking white Christmas!

(I'm ranting aren't I?)

My first winter in Alaska it got down to -45 one night. I sleep with the window open (yes even at negative temps) and when the power went out, it was so cold my toilet froze. I woke up wondering why I was shivering under my fluffy down comforter. So that leads me to...to continue the posts above...

0 degrees, Alaskans add a sweater to their outdoor gear

-10 Alaskans find their winter coats

-20 Alaskan women finally give up on the 3 inch heels and dig out the bunny boots

-60...we go snow-machining (I look lovely in my winter gear and duct tape face mask) LOL

Speaking of Andy's crown (sure I wasn't but I am now)..once someone told me I could send in my picture to a magic person (i'm not having any luck getting it onto BOL) and it would then magically appear...

Who is that person?

mpetry@bankersonline.com or Mary Beth would be able to help. Personally, I'd keep my picture away from her, for now.

I love a woman with duct tape.

Please explain, why Alaska? There are 49 warmer states! By the way, we will be up there very soon for the oil.

LOL thanks guys.

FYI I have 8 different colors of duct tape Andy. I am a firm believer it can be used for anything, from airplane repair to ball gown design. (The duct tape ball is one of the highlights of the season here)! I should use the picture of me in the purple duct tape get up!

The ones with the little census tract maps on them are for sale right now. We're closing out the 1990 stock.

LOL Grist, sounds like there currently aren't 49 other warmer states.

Bank of America moved me up here with the promise of a HUGE raise (that I did get) if I'd put in just two little years in the arctic. I'm always game for a challenge so I flew up and let my household follow by boat ($32,000 bucks on the bank). Just six months later...they sold us to a tiny little bank because (and I quote) the new president "Didn't want to do business where there were more moose than people".

Once you get addicted to Alaska, you just can't get away. (I have to admit I'm considering Texas though for my next adventure).

Where else do you get to wear duct tape to a ball and dance with the Mayor dressed as Elvis?

I'm going to a ball in February and need to go find a gown. I hadn't thought of duct tape. Hmmm . . . .

I thought only the bush planes had duct tape supplies!

Tisk tisk United! (I've seen duct taped wings, doors and props on planes I fly on out in the arctic). I normally get on a plane, find a religion, and hope it won't be too far of a drop when we go down. So far, aside from one little crash, we've made it.

Can you imagine the stories I'll have for my grandkids?

Dawnie, I'm picking up Dan and we're coming for some of your eggnog. That must be some powerful stuff.

Living in South Carolina, I can't really tell you what happens here much below twenty degrees because it rarely gets that cold. I can tell you this...at the first sign of snow, every South Carolinian heads to the grocery store and stocks up on enough food to feed themselves for at least three months. It's quite humorous. I don't do that, though, I lived in Delaware when I was young, and both of my parents grew up in New York, so snow doesn't bother me a whole lot. I spend my time avoiding the locals and their 4x4s!

It's a little stiff...but quite durable.

I have 3 gowns of duct tape and about 40 various other ball-gowns. The duct tape ones are my favorites I could ship you one in a very large box (they don't fold well but they do stand up on their own) LOL

I'll include the moose poop necklace if you'd like? I also have a duct tape purse, shoes, and compact to match....you'll be stylin baby!
