Wanted to start a thread on the upcoming arctic chill coming mid next week. Looks to be the coldest air of the winter and a fairly prolonged event.

spacecityweather has been hinting at a chance of winter precip here in Houston. Hoping so- enjoyed the 7 inches of snow at the deer lease last time.

Some models dont handle artic air well and even come in too high. This is a glimpse into what might happen a week from Saturday as far as temps. This would be temps at noon. Possible multi day storm coming thru with cold temps in place

We were supposed to go tent camping at Pedernales Falls next weekend. Wife and two of the kids are out. My younger son thinks he’s game, and I know I can handle it. We’ll see how it looks and decide. Currently forecast for 16/35 in Johnson City. Hard to escape that kind of cold.

Ah man. I planned on laying down one of a couple of really nice axis bucks that are most likely hard horned now. Been waiting for them to get outta velvet.

But who wants to gut a critter when it is so cold that you can't feel your hands?

Oh so you’re gonna go with the positive reinforcement peer pressure tactic eh? “Father/Son weekend freezing our butts off live thread!” Admittedly, now I feel like it’s a must do.

Happiness is a warm gut pile. You can warm your hands up by putting them inside the axis after you open it up.

Positive reinforcement yes, peer pressure no. You will have a large following on the winter survival thread and people will be checking in with you to see if yall are holed up in an igloo or ice fishing or crawled up inside a fleshly killed tauntaun trying to survive

We are setup at Blanco State Park now and it is chilly this morning. Yesterday was a bit on the warm side and we are thankful it’s not hitting today! Next weekend will be miserable but at least I will be working in the office! Hopefully our fifth wheel fairs well at the coast next weekend because I forgot to winterize it last weekend...

Canadian. Dont want to model hug too much this far out but trend is your friend and looks colder. Something to keep an eye on as the possibilty is there to get very cold and dont want to be caught off guard. Throw in some moisture on top off that and watch out. Bring on the snow. Been too long

This is our 3rd winter and has been the coldest so far. We have had 6-8 inches of snow on the ground for the last month or so.
