Where in Texas? I am currently living in Texas but my wife was promoted to her corp office - in of all places, Minnesota so I guess this cold spell for us is nothing compared to what I will find myself in ! Only have another 19 days to enjoy 'Texas' cold!

I went to college at Shippensburg, just south of Harrisburg in central Pa mountains. I thought it was plenty cold compared to the Phila. area, and I'd freeze me arse off walking the few blocks to campus in the mornings. I used to see a professor of mine walking to campus wearing a sport jacket, scarf and gloves. I'd have everything on I owned and still be cold. Finally asked him one day; he was from Minnesota, where it got down to -40 F, so to him, 10 degrees was balmy.

Better you than me!

Hey, I actually turned the heater on in my shop last night... otherwise I would have had to wear long sleeves. It was 56 in there for God's sake!!! About 20 minutes later, it was a nice and toasty 68.

I am in west Texas and yesterday white stuff fell from the sky, it has not been a global warming type year in Texas...

Small heater in a small uninsulated shop made me quit early yesterday. I cant wait to build my new workshop with insulation and a real heater and cooler!

Oh quit yer whining. When I was your age I had to walk barefoot uphill (both ways) in four feet of snow to get to the workshop. It was so cold we'd sharpen icicles and use them as auger bits. One summer day it got so cold the hide glue turned back into hide. We had no choice but to plane 2000 board feet of ebony and rosewood just to have shavings to burn in hopes of keeping alive.

What, you don't believe me? I wouldn't lie to you on the internet.

Insert witty signature line here.

56!?!?!?! That's what temp my thermostat is set at, I'd set it lower if I could! I light a fire in the wood stove when I come home from work and boy is it chilly in the morning =)
We have been lucky and been a mild, snowless winter up here in CT. Except for the October snow storm that crippled most of the state.

And by the way, EXCELLENT job on restoring that jointer. Looks brand new.

Just installed a new clock/thermometer in the shop. Reads indoors and outdoors. Yesterday 41 degrees outside, 50 degrees inside. Nice comfortable day here in the great Pacific Northwest

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

It was 16 with 30-50mph winds this weekend. That's damn cold for us. No heater, no electricity so my tools ha a lonely weekend.

Possible snow tonight, then 70 on Thursday. Perhaps I can get started on my new project then.

It's been a totally wimpy winter here in the SW of Minnesota. We've been averaging 15 degrees above normal. Only 2 nights below zero so far. The lowest I've seen is -2 F.

Same her in Sioux Falls. It's been a great winter. Maybe the weather patterns have flipped permanently and TX will get all the snow and we'll be 60 in the winter.

CC,
watch a few episodes of Alaska State Troopers. You'll be out in your shop in short pants and a t-shirt after that.

Great show, btw. I live in Phoenix so right now I can work in my garage/shop any time. However, since I just started this "hobby", I have yet to experience working several hours in non-air conditioned garage on a 100+ degree day.

But it's a dry heat...

I've been out mowing the lawn at 112° - 113° in Glendale.

Use the right tool for the job.
