    I don't like being out in it (cold) but being a farmer, cold does kill of lots of undesireable bugs. It becomes a chore keeping stock tanks full and Edison loves us with the tank heaters going...

    It's cold here too, got down to a balmy 10 above last night, 18 now. I'd like to see some snowpack. Makes tracking easier.

    Propane is at $2.02 a gallon as of yesterday, glad I pre-bought at a buck fifty.

    I don't use all that much, maybe 500 gallons heating the shop. The house is on a biomass heat system and ther one next door (that I own as well) is on geothermal.

    The coldest I've ever seen it around here was -45 actual about 15 years ago. At -45, even number 1 gells. Power Service 911 is the only thing that works, if you can get the engine to turn over....

    Thats 'normally' too damn cold for me. By 'warms up in may', I presume warm is above freezing?

    Your local climate obviously makes for some serious cuddling of the opposite sex.....??
