Suggest a springtime swap, Jan/Feb in Iowa can be -15 to -25 degress (sometimes for the highs).
Somehow, the idea doesn't seem quite so appealing now! :roll:

It's not always that cold, just fair warning that it's possible. One good side effect is that it tends to make staying inside and practising more enticing!

Very light flurry of snow on the way home from work last night - a few traces still on the ground this morning, but not enough to let me stay at home :(

No snow today...but we had hail the size of Gold Balls!! (St Andrews Club Regulation Size, to be clear) No damage done to my beloved Kasey, but she got scared coming back home from the bank this evening and saw the water in the creeks.

BTW, Kasey is my car........almost as special to me as my tuba :)

If your car is as small as your tuba is in your picture, it must be a very tight squeeze :shock: :wink: :lol:

LMAO!! Nah, Peter, that's actually a baritone in the picture. That photo's an extract from my last Nationals pic, where I was filling the 1st Baritone part.

However, it's funny that you should mention small cars, because I did use to drive a small car!! My first car was a 550cc Suzuki Hatch. I called her Suzie. It was a 2 seater, with just enough room in the back for Bessie (my tuba), Sarah (my euphonium), and Barry (My baritone sax). Barry got to ride up front actually, now I think about it. Anyway, this car had a 20L fuel tank, Which filled for about $16 and I used to get 300 odd klicks per tank around town. However, she got driven a little too much, and died about 2 years ago. I then bought Kasey, a 1985 Holden VK commodore station wagon. Good, sturdy car, but my next car will be a 4wd.

There's only 2 inches of snow here which occured in October. Its either been too cold here to snow or when its decent out, we can't get much moisture up this way. Usually there's 5 or 6 inches of snow on the ground here this time of year. It better snow big time between now and April or there will be a fair number of forest fires in these parts and have low river / lake levels which is not good for the electric dams in Northern Manitoba :(

Little bits of snow now but it has gone a lot colder so maybe more to come.
I have a gig at 6.30.

Hope it's not too bad when I go. :roll:

Southern Manitoba got 10 inches of snow in the last couple of weeks. The latest storm (yesterday) messed up my plans to goto Minot, ND for a friends wedding :x In both snowstorms, it missed my town altogether. The Arctic chill has arrived and will stay here for atleast a week aka. overnight lows -30C or colder and the high temps. barely making it to -20C if that and I'm not going say what it actually feels like with the windchill.
