No snow and cold is a bore!!!!

Many of you think I am crazy.

But here is the thing.

There are many people who want to go skiing and they can't.

There is no ice on the lakes and so ice fishing is out and most people have their boats winterized.

NO snowmobiling.

There is a lot more and the big issue is that there are many mom and pop shops that depend on the tourist traffic of these activities for their livelihood.

So, I am wishing for snow and at lest some mild cold.


WE should be looking like this...



NOT this!

William, we haven't had any snow yet this year. The weather has been quite nice, sunny and temps in the 50/60s.

    Hi, William.  We are having "flip flops and shorts" weather here in North Florida.  80 degrees today!

Unfortunately most of the woods work up north of you requires Very Frozen ground and a warm winter can be a disaster.

That is so funny William and not surprising from a person who lives in Minnesota.

Did a double take on those photos, wondering what are the 7 differences like in the paper.  Snow, water, shed, bird feeder

Well both pictures are pretty, but for different reasons! I know what you mean about no snow. Hope it comes soon for both of us!

According to our local forecasters , this El Nino Winter may produce very little snow for us !

Hi William.  Sorry you don't have snow but really glad that we don't.

Good morning William,

The weather forecast is now saying we will not have a white Christmas here! Maybe I'll get the golf clubs out.

Make yourself a great day.

I'm with you 100% on this one Bill.....no snow and unseasonably warm can cost a lot of businesses money.

Nice pictures, William. And I get where your head is at. But we moved south to the Carolinas to get away from cold and snow and I'm very happy not to ever see it!

Good morning William. I'm with you on this. It is the time for cold and snow. A moose? Great.

Yes, several mom and pop shops I know are struggling right now...

I agree. I love the snow when it hits our mountains, but then cold is a bore if it's just cold.

The weather is really hurting the winter business models.

Good luck and success.

Cool moose photo William Feela . We got 3" yesterday but it's back up into the 30's and melting already. It is really tough on our winter industries.

I love your landscape as it is William.  Especially with your neighborly moose in the scene!

It's cold and snowing here tonight. Maybe some of it will come your way. We need the snow. We haven't had any for about two weeks.
