It's still February in the upper midwest... you'll have that from time to time... nice part is, only a few more weeks, and it has no real choice but to warm up. Had it been like this in January for any length of time, I would grumble more, but over all, I can't complain for how the winter has gone.

It's 67 degrees where I'm at. I'm in my living room. Outside its d..n cold. The way I think of the cold (or the heat oin the summer) is it makes the mild days that much better.

I must say, I do like the cold -- it's good for business.

Thankfully, I've only had one diesel to start this year.
