what do you guys do when it freezes and you can't work?

Being that I live in california and it might get in the 20's in the winter we work year round. What do the rest of you who can't, do with your time? Do you have other indoor work, or clear snow? Just curious. I knew a landscape company that shifted to plowing snow and clearing walkways for winter for their commercial clients.

Wait for people to post new threads in this forum.
Recreationally speaking, I do lots skiing, work on that honey-do list, or volunteer with the local meals on wheels.

Once it freezes we pray for like a 5 inch snowfall once a week. That would be perfect. Otherwise, during winter all you can do is fix stuff from the summer and sit on the internet drooling over all the new mowers, tools, and trucks you want to buy. haha

I doubt they are scanning the lighting forum-----probably just using the "new posts" feature.
