been out ice fishing at all?

No and it ticks me off;I bought a gas auger this summer and have replaced all the toys I gave away when I gave up my shop, but ice is sketchy and my truck is still back in Kenora (on blocks). I don't know these little lakes around here yet but once we get enough ice for the ice roads I'll be heading back to Kenora. March is always the best month there.

Darren, looks like you got all the snow last year, eh?  Guess that'll have to do you snowbirds for a year or two.  Crazy weather patterns.  

No kidding! Last winter I had to staple a ski to the crotch of my snow suit to get to the car. That resulted in a flood last spring that was unprecedented in 300 years. Yesterday I was doing mobile repairs along the south and east sides of Riding Mountain National Park. On top of the Manitoba escarpment (Riding Mountains) there was just enough snow to operate a snow mobile and when I got down on the east side the fields were completely bare. Those fields had dried out to almost drought conditions by fall. Without that snow cover WHEN the real cold comes : frost goes way deep way quick and sewer and water lines freeze, fall rye and winter wheat pass from dormant to dead, and next spring there will not enough moisture to germinate crops.

As far as how crazy: Normals today ( in Celsius/centicrade) are - 22  and -12. WE broke the 198? record at +6.9 official but the radio station claimed 10. That is fifty-ish F. Minot N.D was 14 C or 54 at one point.

Using the fireplace for the first time this year. Didn't get over 50* today and down to 24* tonight. Burrr!

Here in Central Wisconsin when it gets real cold we avoid the fireplace because of all the heat it siphons out of the room.

The doors on my fireplace are sealed. The fire draws fresh air from a vent through the flu and has a fan that forces hot air into the house. Plus I turn the heat pump down low when the fireplace is cranked up.

So whats the weather like in Ctr Wisconsin these days seen any snow yet. I was born on the other side of Lake Michigan. I remember walking to school uphill, 3 miles in 3' drifts. :)

Gotta stuff those pant legs into your boots. Then when you step into a drift the snow falls into them. Yuck!

Kodydog:
     We had a lot of wet slushy snow several weeks B4 Xmas it melted and we got snow a week before the big day. It's gotten down to -2 or so a couple of nights but yesterday and today we are in a warm up, low 40's not doing wonders for the ice fisherman and all the snowmobile trails are closed.

We were in Florida last week between Christmas and New Years. The coolest day was on Wednesday when we took the kids to Sea World. It made it to the mid 60s and you could tell I was the tourist. Everyone who was local was in jackets and hoodies while I'm walking around in short sleeves. We came back home to 28 degrees but has warmed to the 50s until next week when it cools again. I'm ready to move down there! My wife is from Tampa, shouldn't take too much convincing her either!

It's referred to as "Fish Blood Syndrome" Mike. I've suffered from FBS for several years now. If it drops below 70 I'm looking for a sweatshirt ...

I once saw it snow in Jacksonville. Actually stuck for a couple hrs. Thought that was purty cool.
