    I think down there the rednecks drive around the backroads all night blasting their shotguns and tossing dynomite from the pick-up truck.

    Age and gender of your kids?
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    Go roll around in that red clay and pretend it is snow. then stick some pine straw down your pants. You will feel like a native then...

    Move back north!

    Well, We don't have any snow yet here in southern Minnesota yet!

    Go rent a ice maker, and make crushed ice in the yard so it looks like snow?

    or take them ice skating on the frozen lake or maybe a nice one-horse open sleigh ride through the manure fields.

    Get some of those styrofoam peanuts that UPS packs stuff up with for some fake snow.
    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.

    Take em huntin. Thats what we always done to get away from the house.
    Remember "Hunt with your kids not for 'em".
    After all the food and indoor time it was always good to get out and stretch the legs. Come home wet and cold and eat leftovers.
    Merry Christmas

    Could hear some rumblings. My wife was upstairs in the bedroom and it sounded like she was getting started without me.

    A few hard sharp raps like a cue ball hitting concrete and everything started shaking. Vertical blinds shaking , a couple books fell out of shelves. Only a crack in some of the ceiling texturing.

    I went outside to look for a tsunami wave on the horizon but nothing doing.

    Wife was upset, you would have thought it was another Hurricane.

    A couple aftershocks. Turns out to be 6.7 on Richter Scale, I guess it makes it strong. Never been one before, probably nothing special to the guys out on the west coast.

    Kid who works for me has been staying at my place since the Hurricane. Single guy. He said too bad he hadn't just met some chick and was getting intimate when the quake struck. He said he could have made a good first impression as in "He made the earth move"

    If it snows here I am moving.

    "They said Californy is the place ya oughta be and they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly"

    Will be curious to see what happens to some of the beat up buildings here.

    Don't expect to ever see me at your front door then. I think I'll stay up here where its nice and safe.
