    Electricity was out here for just over an hour. A house sure can cool down quick in that time. :vardy

    Snowing here on Mall Mountain. Our heat hasn't come on yet this season which at the least is very odd. Our cave stays a constant 69-70* I hope the big temperature drop doesn't kick it on.

    My nephews live just north of Tampa. And it was cooler down there last summer than it was here. The breeze coming off the gulf kept temps down to 85-90 on the hottest days when we were sweltering at 100+.
    Since I grew up in the deep south I can handle, and like, hot weather much better than cold. I absolutely despise winter.

    haha, I hate the humidity any more.

    I can always wear 2 shirts, and be warm, but once I start sweating its miserable to me.

    we are getting a mix of snow/sleet here now, but its too warm to be any fun later on the streets.

    This ^^ :thumbup

    Growing up in Southern Arkansas without a/c tends to make you tolerate high heat and humidity. Can't stand to be cold.

    Arkansas is my first experience actually hating thew heat..Arizona would average 120 in some areas...I loved it...coming here though 90 degrees with the wetness is miserable. but I still prefer any heat over cold....I hate the cold with a passion!!!

    I'm bored so I've been working on tracks for the Talimena area and I am thinking of going over there once the weather breaks.

    I am thinking a three day weekend. I've got three tracks that are about 190-200 miles each. All of them begin and end in Mena. Looks like a great place to change venues and still stay in the hills.

    It's close enough that we might even get Doc to get out of his comfort zone but it might be too close to Joe Nuke because he'll wanna come along and harass him. If anyone wants copies of the routes let me know.
