All this frost talk is like listening to aliens from Mars. I've lived themy whole life in Florida and never winterized anything much less even thought about frost before the end of December! Snow is something I've only seen once (1970s) but we do have strawberry fields covered in ice occasionally. We really only have 2 seasons, summer and not quite summer. I do enjoy the snow pictures and look forward to seeing it more when retirement gets here!

Frosty weather

Years ago we had a very good local TV and radio weatherman named Conrad Johnson. He once predicted partly cloudy conditions overnight and into the next day but an Alberta Clipper came through and dropped about 6 inches of snow overnight. The next morning Conrad related that he had received a call asking him to come over and shovel 6 inches of partly cloudy off the caller's driveway. We don't get a lot of snow here compared to others but it usually comes down sideways. Come on up, I'll teach you how to run the snowblower and the tractor/loader. And how to split wood with a maul and wedge. New life skills.

I'd like that Dave except my lovely bride claims she can't breathe if its cold &the wind is blowing, now her definition of cold is probably different from yours. On the other hand, I could show you how to stay inside from June to September because it's just too hot to function or how to mow the yard from March through November trying not to get eaten by fire ants the whole time. Not really any life skills unless you have fire ants in Iowa.

We have had some frosty mornings this month at home, was minus 2c this morning but now it's plus 17 and sunny. Had earlier winterized Escape Hatch and have had brakes and bearings checked. Today in shorts and t-shirt I just finished washing it and having a break before waxing the roof, then the trailer will be all ready for part of winter until we hit the road hopefully mid-Jan making our way to TX.
