The perpetual winter

I'm quite fortunate, living in what's generally referred to as a "temperate zone", (North Carolina), however, we seem to have a never-ending, unusually cold, winter this year. Based on posts I've read by others, I'm not the only one. Originally I hail from upstate New York. The real Upstate, as in Adirondack mountains. Not the "pseudo-upstate" that lies south of Albany, so I'm well aware of what a true nasty winter is.

 

It just seems like the bad weather refuses to go quietly. Of course, the coldest and nastiest days seem to coincide with the days I'm off, which means little, to no, model building. Yesterday, it was 70F and I got my Albatros wings prepped and ready for a nice coat of sky blue to paint to apply on my next day off.

 

Well that day is tomorrow, and it's supposed to be rainy, windy and a high of 40F.

 

It figures.....

Iraq was kinda like that, Guy. 3 months of rain and cold temps, followed by summer, followed by hell. I remember quite a few days of continuous 135-140F temps.  

 

As for your crazy Canadian cold, my neck of the New York woods was about 3 hours south of Montreal down the Champlain & Hudson River Valley. No fun. We measured snow in feet, not inches.... :lol:

 

For the record, I hope an admin doesn't smack your hands, as cold as it is, they might shatter!
