Same!! No snow or ice, just cold @ss rain, constantly. I did get a couple hours of dry weather this past Saturday. I was able to get the saw out and make a few cuts before the drizzle started again. After that, back in the house. I’m currently assembling a box in my sunroom.

LoL I need to swap the engine in one of my cars and it's buried under 12" of snow/ice.

I'd take Kentucky witch ******* anyday.
Lmao damn! I better get my ass up and get out there or it will drive me crazy till I do.
I could bring the car in the garage put the electric heater directly toward the car and do some sound deadening. I got to make some kind of progress here got three 12s coming in at the end of the month. It's going to be a good sounding system can't wait!

Pfffft please for the last 2 weeks wind chills have been below zero during the day and approaching -30 to -40 around here overnight. Today is the first time in a long time where we had temps during the day above 10. Not too mention all the snow and I love it! I hate the fact it is going to be 38 next Wednesday instead of the 10-15 degrees it normally is around here right now. After Saturday temps go up and it is going to play hell on my system and my syndrome.

Wow I'm amazed at our difference of cold weather opinion! I guess you being from Wisconsin you have grown up with it and got used to it that is awesome. now you're reminding me why I don't like the warm weather here because the pollens and allergens go crazy. Maybe I'm just getting older and all my old injuries hurt more in the cold?

You just described 8 month of the year here.
I grew up just outside of Toronto and moved to Vancouver when I was 18 and I can honestly say I'd rather have the snow than all of this damn rain.
Only plus side is I can play soccer all year round, or I could until they put us on lock down.

We’re having a “snow storm” here in Texas. Rolling power outages, gas shortage, school/business closures, water pipes bursting. So yeah, no projects going on down here.

My grandmother lived in San Antonio for the last 40 years I love Texas and the weather there couldn't imagine what you guys are going through down there it's totally nuts and historic my heart and prayers are with you all down there. Talking with you and these northern guys reminded me I've got it easy today even though it's negative 2 wind chill. I'm pulling the car in the garage now and going to take some interior panels apart and get it prepped and clean for the sound insulation.
I'm from fort Walton Beach Florida and we've had snow there I believe three times since 1975 the weather is definitely crazier than it was when I was a kid

I grew up a hour south of Chicago and was used to snow coming down back in the day starting around Halloween sometimes. Plus I use to snowmobile all over this state and the UP of Michigan. Lived on the river and back then I loved the summer and winter since we had a Speed Boat, Pontoon Boat, I had jet skis, quads, dirt bikes, between us and the 2 neighbors we had 10-15 jet skis at any weekend, 4 Speed Boats and 3-5 Pontoon Boats as well. Winter it was always 8-10 of us minimum sometimes we had as many as 20-25 of us, from the time I was 12 and could go with the adults snowmobiling starting back in '86. I also lived on Siesta Key, Florida for close to 2 years as well. Moved up to a hour north of Green Bay in Fall of 2001. It took me a couple winters to get used to the cold again after living in down there for those close to 2 years. But now that I am older and my extremely rare genetic syndrome causing all my issues. Anything above or close to 75 and I have the 2 a/c units on as I can't stand heat and humidity anymore because it messes with my syndrome so bad. Normally people do better with this stuff in the heat and I am the opposite I look forward to Fall/Winter with cold temps and snow. I despise Spring and Summer now. And any time it goes up more then 10 degrees in one day it messes with me bad as well to the point I may end up staying in bed all day because of how bad it will drain my energy. Temps affect me really bad now like that which ***** and they never used to. Hence why I am NOT looking forward to Tues/Weds and the 38 degrees they are saying we will get when we have been below zero and will be 18-20 till Sunday when it goes up to 30.

Damn hang in there bro that sounds pretty rough my mom is like you and she lived in Michigan when she was a kid and always likes the cold better now that I'm in the garage with the heater on I'm fine. Got it nice and cozy in here going to finish up the insulation and paneling and I'll be snug as a bug going to get my car done in here anyway been working too much overtime in one delay after another and I can't stand to not be doing it now.

Damn and that's in Louisiana man it's pretty but I'm not going to hit the like button lol. Nawlins food ftw, and crxs too. About the best system cars around with their cabin gain. I'm preparing to do an install in a 2007 Civic SI coupe right now. The sub forward ports loading to the back glass sealed off from the rear idea definitely occurred to me hehe.

Back in the spring of '86 living on the Kankakee River we had 4.5 feet of water in our house as it was on the ground. Over that summer we raised it up to 10.5 feet off the ground and at one point had the record in Illinois for highest house in a flood zone. Been there done that stuff with floods and we said never again. Used 4 massive hydraulic jacks that raised the house equally over a period of 3 months at a couple inches a day over a 8.5 hour day of work for them. I can't remember the exact number they did each day but it was close to that. We did 10 feet of 24" thick Concrete with cross body 2" rebar with no more then a 6" gap between them vertical and horizontal then topped it off with .5 a foot of concrete cinder block to rest the house on with two huge doors one in front and rear that we could open up whenever it would flood for the water to flow through and not cause any issues.

That is awesome and now it's an amazing place and view on the water I'm certain!!!! adapt and overcome!!!!
I live on the Elkhorn Creek here in Kentucky and the water comes up close sometimes but it never comes across the road as the road is elevated from the creek really well.
No substitute for living on the water it's worth it!!!
