    Havre broke 2 record lows in 2 days -39 last night. Really really sucks when you don't make sure to plug your outfit in all the way

    Alright you win. The good news this morning was I didn't have scrape windows. I think we just stayed in the positive. Wind was coming from the NORTH POLE!, which isn't in the middle of summer.

    I have done the Montana winter think once, and feel for you guys. Be safe!

    "Man O man".... that's cold where you guys live "Montana". Nothing gets done when it's like this. Been hovering around zero here for a few days "Central Idaho" but has move up to 10 at daylight this morning and looks like back to winter normal by next Wed. I really don't like the nasty cold winters anymore.

    Had -26 on my service truck yesterday morning while I was standing out in the middle of a herd of hungry cows trying to get a tractor to pump hydraulic oil that looked like jello, then ran of and put a block heater in a tractor, slung a space heater under one and plugged it into the truck while discussing the merits of #1 with the owner. I ran through 3 bottle of propane yesterday starting tractors, #1 is your friend
