How's the Weather in your area lately.

Recommended Posts

Their's  been a lot of talk about Polar Vortex that's causing these cold winter snow storms.

I'm hoping this is not the new normal as to what some scientist are saying.

Minus -15 C & warmer I could handle it all winter.

At minus -20 C or colder i'll stick to my man cave.

Sleep away the winter blues like a bear.

On a good note, spring is 3 weeks away.

Many people do not like the cold weather, granted.

 

I would take it as a learning experience, if you don't get a lot of snow or ice in your area.

 

Now is the time, even in your back yard or neighborhood playground park, try making a igloo or a snow fort wall.

You will learn something.

Time your self & see how long it takes you to build it.

 

If you have a pond, river, lake close by have a go at some ice fishing.

 

Just make sure that the ice is 12 inches or more thick when venturing out fishing.

 

Have a go at snow shoeing with your BOB, it's a whole new venture & certainly not the same.

 

Try making a fire in the snow, see if you can do it as well with a ice lens that you need to make. Like a magnifying glass.

 

I've done these things with my son, you might not need it, but good to know that you can build it, make it & do it.

 

When the SHTF happens, one never knows what time of the year, the weather or terrain one needs to overcome.

 

Knowledge & experience once learned how to do, it just might save one's life.

A quick & easy way of making snowshoes in a pinch, is cutting a pine tree branch if they are in your area.

Make sure the tree branch surface area is  2 1/2 to 3 times the surface area of the sole of your boots.

You will need some type of cordage/rope to tie it with your boots & your good to go.

It's not the best, but will help you walk on top of deep snow a lot better.

Give it a try & happy trails.

We have a version of snow shoes here, we call them tennis rackets

 

I got no use for them or snow chains snow mobiles ,  snow blowers, snow planes,  Avalanche alerts or worry about the spring thaw

 

if I want to know what the world looks like covered in snow I buy a snow cone and look over the top of it aligned with the horizon curiosity satisfied

 

then I eat it.

 

And with the new safety features on the walk in freezer it is zero chance I will ever get frost bite,

 

Anyone who lives north of San Antone and complains of snow confuses me to no end. :rolleyes:

On a positive note, getting rain in some areas in the states would certainly help in the food production of growing things.

I for one would certainly wouldn't want too much rain at one time, which would cause a big issue of flooding.

A healthy balance is what's needed world wide, which seems to be a long fond memory these days.

God help us all, I for one surely needs his help & guidance daily that's for sure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If your not physically fit, then your just food for the Zombies. LOL.

In GOD I trust, Everyone else keep your hand where I can see them !

Spring is here but a cold spell is supposed to be coming, but I am not worried I don't plant till after good Friday {your area may differ}

 

It was in the mid 70's today, but over cast now it is drizzling at least my fruit vines and trees look like they are going to be fine all have buds

 

so I am looking forward to a bumper crop as long as we don't have a drought. But if anything I think it will be a wet year here.

Just when I thought spring has sprung, old man winter will be showing up again tomorrow with 5 to 8 center meters of the white stuff.

A snowball curve, that's been forecasted. People living in central Ontario, Canada & in Buffalo New York area will be getting a lot more snow.

Mid seventies here was so nice I had to start spring cleaning I can actually see the shop floor OMG!

 

the ceiling fans and light globes are clean you know do that top to bottom thing it ought to take a few days.

 

I hate this part of spring, but when it is done, I feel better than I dread fall cleaning.

 

It is time to start casting so I can have  what I need by august, It is not quantity its quality

With this winter season prolonging more than normal.

The gas companies in Ontario Canada want to now charge an extra $400 per house starting April 1st as of this year.

They are saying that all the natural gas that they had in reserves are now almost depleted. 

They're not fooling me, Canada has one of the largest resources of natural gas on this planet.

I say it's GREED showing it's ugly head & taking advantage of the working class with the outcome of this years winter weather.

People just don't think as to what's going on & pony up with fund$ taken from them. For what ??

The dumb down folks will accept it as gospel & not even question or research these things. OMG.

Times are a changing & not for the betterment of community.

Keeping an eye on things from the sidelines.

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
