    Had a problem with frozen pipes today. I got to go into the shower, but tried to brush my teeth beforehand. No water from either of the bathroom taps. No water from the shower. Oddly, water came from the kitchen cold tap. I called my supplier, and they suggested it could be frozen pipes, which a lot of people are having.
    Mid morning I tried the hot kitchen tap. Some clunking and then there was water again. Loads of green bits came out the tap too.
    I fear this is going to happen again. I hate hate hate winter.

    Let us ban winter! Or better yet, ban temperatures from going below 32 degrees in places where people live. I wheeled in -5 degrees, and when the cold snap ended the ground was black ice. This happened every year. I could hear the tips of the rye grass snap in our field! I slid down a mild slope for 20 feet not knowing where I was going to land.

    Then a couple that I knew moved to Hawaii and asked me if I wanted to come for the winter. I did, then went home sold my house and moved to Hawaii 25 years ago. I could not help myself. I was single, nothing to keep me in Republic, the Northern most town in Eastern Washington State.

    You have to love Canada:

    A blizzard warning was in effect for Nunavut, where Eureka was the country's coldest spot Tuesday morning, reaching a temperature of —42.4°C.

    The hot spot? Balmy Long Pond-Manuels, Newfoundland, near St. John's, where the temperature hit 12 C Tuesday morning.

    Montreal got hit too (hope the members from Quebec are okay!)

    Too much snow here. I had to go to a meeting around the corner and had to write a SMS that if I was not there at 5pm, they had to come and look for me in case I was catch by the snow.

    An unusually warm day here today with a high of 62 and very, very dry. I think I saw a dew point of 12 F a day or two ago.

    That's about what it looks like here as well. Thankfully two days of sun has melted the slushy bits on the ground

    Sci 55. I know that area. My wife is from Clay just above Syracuse, New York. They received 54" of snow this week. We have about 8" just below Binghamton, New York but very cold this year. To have below Zero this time of the year is to early for anyone. At least we are not shoveling tons of snow. A Blessed Christmas holiday to all.
    Best Regards,
    Joe
