Baby, it's cold outside!

Winter is now upon us here in the PNW. With the smell of winter in the air, it's now time to get the visit from the flu bug, change the heater filter in the furnace, get the studded tires ready for the trip to Les Schwab to install them, so you can make the trip up to the mountains or through the passes, get the gallon of de-icer ready for the morning warm up of my Chevy, pack away the summer clothing and break out the sweaters, jackets, and thermal underwear! That's just a partial list of things to do to prepare for the below freezing weather, black ice on the road, heavy fog and possible snowfall. One good thing about this winter is that the price of gas has gone down significantly, as we are fast approaching the two dollar range...yippee!

Our "winter" version is starting up here, too aka: rain. WOW! Your gas is moving to the $2 range? We're currently at $4.27 a gallon. Don't you miss being here where everything is over priced??? C'mon, I know you do ;)
