Right around freezing here in Nova Scotia.  Snow started late last night, one of the main highways was closed all day - the trucks couldn't get up a hill since the snow came down and turned instantly to ice.  A truck blew over on the causeway to Cape Breton this afternoon, so there are wind warnings out for empty semi-van's.  Forecast is 47 degrees on Friday, then back to around freezing.  I started the bus today, it started pretty easy at freezing with a tiny puff of ether.  I had to move it to my other building, a local company is going to refurbish a 40 foot commercial fishing boat in my bus shed this winter.  That shed was the finish workshop for the 250 odd fishing boats that came out of my place over 30 years before I bought it so it's going back to it's roots.

    Southern North Carolina, down in the teens last week (overnight lows); next couple of days, in the 70's.  The old people used to call it "pneumonia weather" - they were right!

Our First winter in Florida... so far not too impressed.  I miss the snow, but the bus life in the cold just doesn't mix.
Next winter I want to be a little bit more north... this is ridiculous.

minus 9 as I type.   Supposed to get to -13 or so.  I'm guessing -18 to 20.   Not much snow, just an inch or so.  Not going to warm up till next week.  Way to early for this much cold.  Winter is still over 2 weeks away.
Magic Bus stays warm(ish) as long as I keep feeding her propane.

Cows are covered in frost/snow. They seem to adapt ok.  Glad I'm not out there with them.
