    The best EDC I have right now isn't easy to carry. It's a Jeep! It's the best EDC for right now at least. My Jeep got me and my wife both safely to work through the snow covered wasteland of Northeastern Oklahoma. How are the rest of you guys doing?

    Scratch that, I am walking. After I get a little pride back.

    Not much snow where I am at but it is more slick then I want to do on two wheels.

    Minus 39 degrees celcius with the windchill here now. My wife's van blew the power steering pump in the driveway because of the cold. Might be a good day to stay in bed.

    Drove through the place today that was the coldest place on Earth yesterday. It ain't warmed up much since then. Was glad we didn't have car trouble because being stuck on the side of the road would have been life threatening. It's just going to be -40 or so windchill tonight. Don't ask if it's C or F because that's where they intersect, so all of the above.

    28 °F and and a half inch of snow today. We usually don't get any snow at all through out the whole year. I usually have to drive 2 or more hours to get to snow. People were freaking out about the snow and there was about 10 car wrecks within 5 blocks of my house in the first few hours it was snowing.

    Ya, if I'm leaving the yard my best EDC right now is my 4x4 F-250! :D
    Currently 25F here in interior Alaska... We did -25F last week... It decided to come up to +30 and spit freezing rain again yesterday:furious: :nah_disagree::cry:.

    Soposed to gradually progress down to -30F again by Wed or Thur night... I'd sure like to have above 0F WITHOUT rain for a while... ;) Even around 0F would be nice... Ain't gonna happen for two months though I'm betting. :cry:

    Not bad at all. They were calling for between 1/2" to 1" of ice (yikes!) but we barely got anything. Could be a little more in the morning but I think we dodged this one. :)

    Thankfully no more rain/ice here yesterday or today, just a light dusting of snow today. (which I hope packs in fast, and doesn't do the corn meal on shuffle board effect on the ice, like it does sometimes..)
