    I drove through a band of snow on Friday, it wasn't on the roads, but the lawns, car lots etc... all showed a couple of inches of powder... today, we've got a heat wave, and it is in the 60° range!

    67° here today. Supposed to be 40° tomorrow, and 22° tomorrow night, then stay if the 30s for highs over the next week or so, and well below freezing every night. Looks like Winter is coming to Northeast Ohio a few weeks early.

    Thanks Darren, I feel much better . Fireplaces in SoCal; the biggest waste of masonry and space I can think of yet, EVERY house on my street and for blocks and blocks have one .

    I BBQ all winter, don't you?


    I'm kind of curious about who wrote that joke, as I thought Montana and North Dakota were considered colder than MI. (Let alone Alaska)
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    I don't know who wrote it, I found it and snagged it as it fits IMO, or should that be IMMO {in my michigan opinion}

    And yes we grill year round, & each season, the wife thinks I'm nuts when I carry the snowblower up on the deck, but her laughter soon fades when I light that match
