    One of our most memorable, and enjoyable, camping trips was a 12/26 campout at a state park in Texas. Not the temps you are talking, but for my gang 20 degrees was plenty cool.

    There was snow on the ground and we had the place to ourselves. It was great.

    Go for it!

    Actually several years ago when the kids were cub scout age. Last week was a good reminder though.

    There's something about cold weather camping that I just love so temper my vote to "Go for it!" accordingly.

    It's the emergency blizzard kit that you should have in the auto in the winter time. And the storm is on it's way.

    I'm very much not the person to offer domestic advise, but I can tell you that Brandon told me last night that your Yeti is in the mail. I'm guessing you'll get it in time. At least that variable can be removed.

    Your wife may have agreed just to satisfy you, but I think once your family is there, opening gifts in gorgeous surroundings, she will thank you for the experience in the end.

    dry hand and toe warmers.

    Buy lots of dry hand and toe warmers. The little orange packs you get at wal-mart and home depot. They're cheap assurance. Fill her pockets, gloves and shoes with them if the complaining starts.

    An extra car battery hooked up to a heat blanket.

    Alcohol. Get her blitzed and that may help if all else fails.

    Appropriate title for the thread today.

    Started snowing here at our place around 8:00 last night. It's been a steady, very light and dry, snow since. Very pretty and not enough to make the roads totally suck. Now we just have to be able to keep it around for a few more days.
