Here are some from Check Pilot:

I'm sending you a couple of photo's of some minus 30 C. days from our days in Winnipeg, Manitoba for you to post if you want.

It kind of gives me some pangs of empathy when everyone mentions snow and cold.

Some more from 2004.

Wowzers - I'm alergic to that white stuff.

There are 10 types of people. Those who know binary, and those who don't.

Winter? What's that?

Here in Texas, we have four seasons:

Deer season!

I saw snow a couple of years ago one weekend when I drove out west to the Hill Country. There was about 1/2" of it. My wife stayed at home and said there was no snow here.

Sometimes I miss snow, until I look at pictures like this and remember getting up at 5 AM to shovel it (which isn't as bad as having to work with freezing fingers, or when your hammer misses the staple and the Romex shatters!).

We do get ice storms, about once a year or so. Then we get hailstorms that ruin roofs and put golf-ball-sized dents in cars. That's about it.

We just started running the air conditioner a few days ago, and I put the jobsite fan in my truck, just in case. Haven't need to use that yet.

Healthy carpet of snow though.

The product of rotation, excitation and flux produces electricty.

Here's a bunch from last year.

Funny part is up here in coastal Maine we had virtually no snow this year.

As you can likely guess, we weren't doing any rough-ins that month in unheated structures like garages. It stayed around minus 30 C. for January and most of February. When it finally warmed up to minus 10 C. in March we went nuts doing rough-ins. The whole construction industry suffered for two months with nothing to do. That, however is not unusual for Winnipeg. I'm no longer in Winnipeg (Edmonton now) but this winter on the Praries in Canada it rarely got below minus 15 C. so there was lots going on for all the contractors. -a welcome change.
