-45 at the house this morning. Supposed to get a bit of wind later, going to be brutal. Ice fog is just starting to climb the mountains.

Good weather to stick around camp,split some green wood,and scrape some hides,and a big pot of coffee on the stove for the coffee breaks,lol.
Always loved splittin green birch when its real cold-one little whack with the axe at those temps and it flys apart in 3 or 4 chunks.

Does your wife know you refer to her as an ol' bear hide? No wonder she never lets you honey moon her! whistle

We used to be able to count on about 3 months of minus 30c weather and colder back in the day-now we are lucky to get maybe a week here and there in Dec Jan and Feb.
Cant say for Yukons area but If he has been up there long enough I bet he has seen the change also.

I have my attire dialed in perfect to really enjoy snowshoeing in well below 0F down to even -20F. I'd love the challenge of trying colder but we just don't see those temps.

We had an above normal January temperature-wise. Now, February is running below normal.

A few days ago our local meteorologist showed where the record high was recorded in 1856. They didn't have fossil fuels back then like we do now. I tend to believe the scientists (and there are some) who say this weather cycles. Not that I feel we don't need to take care of our environment.

Into the -40s stinks. We’ve been there for four days. On the upside, first 4 days of the winter that cold, Like Boco, I remember winters that went like that for a month. The deer are really piling into my yard now though.

Even so, still snaring coyotes and my kids are snowshoeing around picking whitetail sheds.

I love it.
Got an old bearhide nailed out to frostscape tomorrow morning.
Should have it shined right up in about 20 minutes while breakfast is cooking.
