    Cabin fever!!!!

    Have to vent (and it's too damn cold out to yell out the door).
    Been "laid up" post lumbar surgery since mid October. Recovering nicely but at the same time having to scrounge up a new job.
    Forbidden to leave the house because NJ is iced over and still at sub zero temps.
    Trying to fill up the time by taking a course in "full stack development" thru FreeCodeCamp - at least I'm learning what a lot of those
    buzz words in the job listings mean if nothing else.
    Things are set to thaw out in a couple of days - but in the meantime - aaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!

    I'm with you in spirit, Pal!
    My wife is gone for ten days and I'm on the loose.........when it's a little cold to galavant much!
    The furnace in the garage is running and running because the furnace bozo replaced the old mercury switched thermostat that I had rotated so it didn't come one until ~33*F.
    Now it's trying to maintain something north of 45*! So I found a 35* thermostat on Amazon. WTF! Its for use in GARAGES! And it will be in my mailbox tomorrow.
    Only problem? Can't get through the snow-pile to get to it!
    I'm thinking long handled cultivator might retrieve it.
    I'll keep ya posted.
    Where in NJ are you? I'm a mile off rt 206 in Flanders

      Feeling it here in Virginia also. And weary of it. These old southern houses (1950) aren't built for this weather. It has been especially cold because of the wind mostly at night. I did wrap my outside pipes before cold snap and dripping faucets at night. We are due to get above freezing for the first time in days , tomorrow... by Thursday 65. Feeling i can see light at the end of the tunnel.

      Hang in there.

          I was in touch with my brother near Tampa yesterday (38 degrees). At least up here in the north, cold weather is factored into our lives and our architecture.
          Relatively speaking, you guys are really getting hit hard this winter.

          Try to stay warm.

            I have too many broken bones for this cold weather. I hunted three afternoons this week, the last week of the season here in VA, and damn near froze. I was out in it Sat. afternoon for 3 hours, 19 degrees with 25 mph gusts, 10-15 steady winds. So looking forward to this upcoming week.

            Garvey, I have enough work to do that I can stay busy inside but my lab, Ammo, is going stir-crazy like you.

            FROZEN, the new F word!

                  It could be worse. Try combining this weather with being a Browns fan.

                      Just wanted to make you guys feel a little better...I live in Northwester Ontario, Canada. The temps you guys are talking about seem quite warm to me!

                      My water line between my well and house froze on Christmas day, the battery froze solid and the hydraulic filter exploded on my loader so I cant plow the snow from the driveway and I am digging myself out by hand and using my power chair to plow snow ( batteries only lasts about 1 hour in this cold before they die out) the cold and snow are definitely a bit of an obstacle but not insurmountable.

                      My suggestion is to get some off road tires (and a freewheel for those that use a manual chair) and get the hell out there!

                      There is also some good meditation links on you tube

                      This has proven helpful as well! LOL
