Well that is way warmer than I am now.

17 degrees, feels like 12 degrees. Snow all over, more snow than ever before by some of the old-timers. Others say this is the way it used to be.

So anything warmer than 25 will be a plus.

Over a foot of snow in the back yard still but highways and roads have been pretty good considering the pounding we have had in the Midwest this year and im about 100 miles north of EFEST. As of today were looking at 30s for the weekend near the event, local weather info HERE.

As of right now, it looks to be in the mid 30's, with a slight chance of snow. It's still a lot better than it is at the moment.

Anything is better than what I have. It is 15 degrees here and not much change in sight.

I will take mid-30's any day.

Steve,
The weather in the armory is always nice, I never worry about that.

It is the weather outside the armory that is sometimes troublesome. One E-Fest on the way home I got into a blizzard. Each year I have been there, the temps have been 0 or below outside, wind, and just plain nasty. No snow, that had already fallen.

So the traveling is the problem, I know the armory is nice.

Last year we made it 7 of the 8 hours home before hitting bad weather. We're looking pretty good this year with just grey skies both ways.

See you all in a few hours!

Dang Winter!!!!!!

This was going to be my first EFest.
Not going to be able to make it. We are supposed to get 3" of snow here in eastern Iowa on Saturday and I do snow removal with nobody to cover for me.
Everybody have fun.

Well, Frank and Steve said it was supposed to be nice outside.

Well I checked the one weather site I have bookmarked. Well 1 degree doesn't sound nice to me for the morning.

I will check more later. Seems like this new clipper moving across the country is getting more than just a few states.
