In Janurary of '03 we had a stint of -30*F. It was very sunny, calm no wind and no snow (minus what was already on the ground.) The weather guy said it was to cold to snow. He explained that the moisture in the air would hit the dew point long before it would get to us.
It stayed that way for almost 6 weeks. I got a lot of ice fishing done. 8-)
I wouldn’t mind that again for a few weeks. 🙂 But only a few weeks I would rather not have to spend the nest egg keeping the house above freezing.
