    We finally got done dealing with the hard freeze and frost that's been plaguing our area for the last couple weeks. Now that that's out of the way, a rain storm is approaching that should be hitting this area in less than a hour from now. So much for doing this weed control job I was headed to.

    thats only about 100 deg warmer than it is here. the temp isn't as bad as the wind. 0 deg is cold but when the windchill drops it to -30deg that is no fun and the worst part is the wind shoved the ice on the lake and there might not be a spearing season (the only thing winter is good for imo).

    Truck repair and equipment maintenance, and hoping and praying for some snow we're suppose to get to make some money back after truck repair cost.
