... came across this story when I was watching the service:
New Marlboro Man
Kind of a follw up story to one of the lasting images of the war:

But, walking has been tolerable (amazingly) and -45 seems to have become the old -25, bearable if just a bit on the chilly side. Geez, time for a vacation if this is my outlook...

Snowmachining to the station:
Changing out the dead batteries (70 lb batteries and very cold to boot):
Changing out the bucket that catches the snow in the winter:

...I wanted to hang on to this link for posterity. Former state representative Jeanette James got her feathers ruffled by last week's letter. Who knows how bothered she was but it was enough to be full of lots of thoughts and little organization. So, that's pretty cool. Tune in this February for the next installment.

0 to -5 Somewhat hard to change gears but pretty easy to change between 3 to 4
-5 to -15 Pretty much down to a single gear but can be changed with difficulty
-15 to -30 Only have one gear to pedal with
-30 cogs in the freewheel stop clicking
-38 to -45 cogs in the freewheel stop clicking in about 15 minutes when the bike goes from room temperature to the cold.
Here's the rough walking scale:
0 to -5 time for a mouth cover
0 to -15 glove liners good enough for the hands
-15 to -25 frost build up on eyelashes
-15 to -32 Heavy gloves to keep the hands from freezing
-32 switch from heavy gloves to super mittens
Anyway, I think this station of GWs shows pretty close the temperature at my place (don't mind the 2005 they're always slow about changing the years to the current one):

My name is BULIMAR HENCIU DANIEL, i lived in LUGOJ, district TIMIS, ROMANIA, and from 10 years i trying to discover something, and now i succeeded. Is about a device who work with one battery type R6 at 1.5V and for one second this device has switch on one auto bulb (light) by 12V,21W. Whole an auto bulb i succeeded to switch with one battery TYPE AG3 at 1.5V,25mAh this is a unbelievable thing. In physic don`t exist formuls who can prove possibility of this experiment construction. The device don`t use formal methods from classic physic. The current have other propertyes and he behave different.
Now we have access at digital tehnology and we know that one microprocessor can make up awards of 1000 discharge in one second, this mean a very big current.
This experiment is important for the next discoveryes.
Can`t obtain antigravity or controled gravity only with 50-60Hz, thus is needed a big frequency and a big current intensity. At this time all of this are just a theory, but what i was obtained practically will help at realisation of this projects.
If my device was build in lab conditions then it will can have input one battery Ag3, that means 1.5V at 25mAh and for one second this device has switch on one bulb (light) by 220V,100W. This nobody can do.

The other cool thing is that the moon's out right now so there's lots of light even at night. And, who knows, if we ever get more snow maybe there'll be some on the trees again..

In other news, West Virginia is totally trouncing Georgia and it's hardly the second quarter.
Happy New Years
