Is that all the colder it is where you are?  I thought the midwest was
pretty well frozen.

Let us all know how Windows 98 turns out.  I  don't think I'm reday for it.

We keep getting squalls, 5-10 cm here and there.  It's keeping everything
pretty and white.  We should have another big one this weekend (maybe) so
it should be interesting.  Average temp -9 celsius, with wind chill -30-35.
 Despite bad weather the roofers are coming tomorrow to reshingle our
garage.  This is what Mennonite farmboys do in the winter.

The front lawn is a snowfort, and the back is now about 24 inches deep with
drifts.  At least all the summertime disasters from the drought and heat
are covered up.  I shudder to think what I have lost.  Next phase is
groundcover, I think.  The job has gotten so hectic I won't have much time
to garden and think I'll spend that little bit I do have moving my good
bulbs to the farm.  Godwilling I can retire soon.
