Its warming up in Northeast Iowa. This morning we had an all-time record low for any day for the Waterloo area, -34 degrees. Decorah, Iowa was at -40 degrees this morning. I did not want to know what the wind chill was. I fell the the warmth moving in, it is only a -14 degrees right now. I wonder if the soundboards are drying out a little. More tunings down the line.

For the record, Global Warming doesn't mean that every place on earth is suddenly warmer. It means that there will be greater fluctuations between the extremes.

Which is kinda what we're seeing right now. These are some of the coldest days in decades.

I was just thinking, I'm glad I'm not a nudist!
If any nudist colonies are religious, they are sure to turn into atheists in the wintertime.
Well, I'm glad we went to NAMM just in time.
It was 82 and sunny today. Staying here through Monday, by then Southern Florida should have warmed up again.

Was taking to the folks from Jansen today, they said it was 18 degrees in WI today (without the wind chill factor).

Toss them in the microwave, go outside, freeze yourself and then come in for a nice warm booger, er, burger. We got about another 6 inches or more yesterday.
