    Heck, in NH, it won't even make the news when it blows hurricane force

    in the winter. Check this link, the highest temperature ever recorded here is 72° F, and the highest wind speed recorded is in the 230s. Yes, that's MPH. That's the world record.

    Good thing you're in SOUTH Texas. When you get up around Lubbock or Amarillo, there's nothing but a barbed wire fence between there and the North Pole...and it's down most of the time.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

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

    You adapt to it. Was on a roof the other day, low 20's and snowing, it's OK till the wind starts, that's the killer.
    Ya also get winter skin, after awhile 30 feels like 75.
    It makes the phone ring, that's for sure.

    I wear a 10X suit when it gets cold 10°. Coldest I remember is 0. Flip side was 104. Lowest chill factor was -22°. Highest heat index was 115°. Kneel on cardboard when its cold. Keep bare skin off metal when its hot. These kind of working conditions are why we make the big bucks, right?

    Guess I get the worst of both worlds....Work on a valve group on roof (98 degrees, 88 percent humidity), then go inside freezer to check unit operation (-15 degrees, 30 feet in the air, not sure of wind velocity...but most of our fans are 7.5 hp)
    If at first you don't succeed....
    Dig in the trash for the instructions!

    When I was a kid

    we slept in a tee-pee at a black powder rendezvous at -16°. My cousin was the only comfortable one. His cold german sheppard crawled in the sleeping bag with him. It was so cold the fire in the middle couldn't draft. Had to hold up the edge with a rock to get air.

    Three Rivers Texas, You spent a week there one day. I can understand. Driving South from central,Texas Three Rivers is about where the terrain changes to, If it don't stick you, bite you,or have thorns on it,then it ain't gonna grow.Now there is some good whitetail deer,quail,and dove hunting.Just watch for rattlesnakes.

    30 deg is still only long sleeve shirt weather, Maybe a sweat shirt. I haven't broken out my jacket yet here in New York.
