If I may...what are major glaciation problems?

Lack of snow cover/insulation, allows seeping water to freeze creating a dam until the water flows over the top, freezing, creating a higher dam, and a repeat until the "glacier" gets 1,2,3,4,etc., feet thick. Especially a problem on mountain roads. Glaciation can also be a problem on creeks and smaller rivers.

Hey Ma. It’s -44 here. We had a reading at North Pole of -48 earlier.

When I was here last time, the lowest temp I experienced was -56.

We are getting closer.

But, if the world doesn’t end today, we will start gaing daylight again.

That’s right....the world is ending. So far it’s only -3 at my house.

And you are right...a little more daylight every day now.

Stay warm!!! Take good care of your jets....what a shock to come rolling out of a nice heated hanger into that COLD! ((HUGS))

but 2 of my friends parents said NO to something that came up “because dinner was already made”....they missed out. My Mom just put dinner in the fridge.

A good "all year round" lesson

Good morning LTOS ((HUGS))

That would have been my first guitar, 49 years ago. A HUGE arch-top Harmony from Sears with 1/4 action! It took 47 years to get a Les paul, but it was worth the wait.

You described that like I knew what it meant...LOL
Thanks for sharing that memory. I know how important it was.

Seems I finally caught up on the pings, so before I go, I'll share a favorite memory

I guess when I was around 10 or 11, the bedroom I shared with my younger sister was on the right side down the hallway; my older sister had the bedroom directly at the end, which happened to look down into the living room. So this one year she allowed us to come into her room so we could peek out the door to watch "Santa" put the toys out.

Not much going on here. Things are a little more quiet this morning after the winds we had yesterday.

My sister is coming down from the city on Sunday. They're bringing down some Christmas presents for me.

May get some snow for Christmas. Crossing our fingers.

It's the 21st, Early Birds!
If I open my eyes will we still be here?
Those silly Mayans!
It IS the first day of winter, though!
It's chilly here but not very wintery!
Oh, well...it's the desert after all!
All you Early Birds have a Fabulous Friday!
Enjoy those last few hours of shopping!
We are crazy busy right now!
