If your going to ride out here on the hog make sure it's equipped with Ice cleats, and you better be wearing your thermal PJ's.

This is just an overnight North Idaho Light dusting of snow... The big stuff is supposed to hit us tonight again.

A buddy of mine was left a house in Florida years back when his father passed which he migrates to every winter a couple days after New Years until May which I never really understood because winter never really bothered me well until now. Every second day I go out to the garage to do a workout but just a couple days ago after walking through the freezing rain and snow on my way to the torture chamber I finally understood his need for heat and sunshine, these old bones like heat. Had a bitch of a time working up the energy to exercise, even had to pull the cover off the bike and sit there and stare at it to bring myself back around. Who knows, one of these years soon we may find ourselves joining all the other old snowbirds and migrate to the heat ourselves.

Get yourself some of those lights that make you feel like you are in the sun. After moving to Florida I went home for Christmas one year. I did not realize how much I missed the sun until I got off the plane, upon my return the funk started to lift immediately.

No real snow in our forecast, but it***8217;s going to get cold by the end of the week.

The low cost heating bill has been nice, but I***8217;m looking forward to it. Will most likely fire up the wood stove too.

This is how you load test newly built trusses and building in North Idaho, it's our new house, yes still under construction, just temp wrapped the walls for winter.
Trusses are 2x6 top and bottom cord and engineered for a 100Lb snow load, we are nowhere near that yet.

House looks great so far, and the trees look good in their "winter clothes."

Fine with me. Need some degree days and a hard freeze in the ground to kill off the bugs. My biggest enemy in the hay is leaf hoppers and I need a good winter kill to slow them down.

I'll just crank up the bio fuel stove another notch. Only been running on 2 so far, have 6 more higher heat ranges to go.
