    Well it only proper to share some winter weather with you once in a while, it's gives you time to think about why you never want to see snow again! :beer:

    BOO HOO We also only get snow once or twice a year here in Page AZ USA but we got 5 inches Saturday morning BUT it was gone by Sunday afternoon!
    We also have the best rainbow trout fishing river in the western USA right next door and the best warm water fishing lake out my door (Lake Powell) No limit on 5 pound or bigger stripped bass. Can catch 100 a day in the summer time.

    "Wind chill thing." That is hilarious.
    I have never lived anywhere this was not a regular part of the vocabulary.

    Make some snowmen.
    Build that fire and sip that nice Port.

    Cliffy, true enough, close to paradise up there, but, until they fix the road, you need to fly in, lucky for you that's not a problem. 85 and sunny here.

    been doing that ;) that wind chill thing is now only minus 5c :whoo: but the white stuff hasnt gone.....we worked out that the last time we had anything like this was about 1978/9....we used to go years without even the smallest amount of snow, used to be a real novelty, but since they started on about global warming its got colder here...would prefer to go back to the supposed colder times when we were warmer here.....you figure it :headscratch:

    I had a case of booze ready to send with a side of beef but then remembered. You said everything was shut down. So there would be no way to get it to you. Opened it up and had a BBQ and got drunk instead.

    Let me know if I can ever help again
