Another 1-3 inches expected in the DC area this evening. We haven't had much chance to melt out of the last bit we got.

We had 10" over the past two days in Hampshire. Parts of the UK will have -2F temperatures overnight.

Is it really true that your old people are burning books to keep warm? I saw that headline but figured it was bogus. :D

We had freezing rain yesterday and it is 12 degrees now. I don't know if I could break through the frozen ground with the dozer today, The frost was three inches deep and deeper in some spots yesterday and before you could do any shaping you had to bust the crust off. That makes for awfully lumpy dirt!

Supposed to get in the low 20's for the rest of the week here. Going to let my outside faucets drip so that the pipes will not freeze up. Water company tells you not to do that because of pressure and usage losses. Screw that; they don't pay for busted water pipes.
