    yes sir, your not kidding. Sunday morning I couldn't get the padlock off the gate at work. Key wouldn't turn in the hole, finally I bent the key, while it was freezing cold and blizzarding out. Had to take my tow chain out and hook it on to the lock, then drive away! Then my tractor wouldn't start. We have 26 tractors, and 18 wouldn't start on monday morning. School was also closed monday due to the cold temp.

        I have to apologize to all of you suffering in the cold.

        I was complaining this past weekend because it was too cold and windy to go hiking. It was in the 40s.

          There's only one response to that ...

          Hey if it was in the 40s you'd see Canadians in shorts ...

              If that's not one of the dumbest things I've heard. Although, the building I work in tends to have fire drills in the middle of the summer on the hotest, most humid day of the summer. Idiots.

                That was smart. Eleven degrees would feel pretty good to me right now. We went 60 some hours straight without getting above zero. It's actually a whole 1 degree here right now. A couple mornings ago the windchill was -40. Spring isn't far away now.

                BTW, where did you come up with the degree symbol?

                  Mike, try holding down the Alt key and typing 0186.

                    No, it's Alt+0176 but the numbers MUST be typed on the keypad otherwise it won't work.

                      Personally, I think it's easier just to type the word.

                          I just popped into the barn when I got home for a sec and noticed it's 33 in there. Never saw it get under 39. I had to turn on the heat to the lowest possible setting, which i think is 45. Don't want anything to freeze in there. Wood glue is ok to freeze once only. I don't know about any other products like poly's or paints. Hopefully anyone that works in a small unheated shop has already brought anything that can freeze into the house.

                              I know it is all relative but when it is 14 degrees in Raleigh, NC you know it is cold. BTW I used to live in Plattsburgh, NY A place where every winter we had 7-10 days straight days where the high would stay below zero..... I was much much much younger then and I guess I am getting soft.

                                Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                                I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                                For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                                Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                                So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                                Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
