I love cold weather, but dammit this is starting to harsh my mellow. Right now it is -7 with a windchill of -23. Which would be fine if I was staying inside, but I wanted to go shooting today. I was going to take some friends out to the range and have some fun. Since the only good ranges that I can get on are at least an hour to an hour and a half away, I called them to make sure they were open. One of them actually states to call before coming as they may not open if the weather is bad.

Sure enough the first one I called said they where not going to open today due to the temperatures just for safety reasons. They are an all outdoor range. The other has a heated outdoor area, but they are further north. They say they are pretty much open all the time. Just to play it safe I called them and the guy I spoke with said that they were currently open, but they are thinking of closing shortly because of the weather.

I decided not to risk the drive for a closed range. Called my friends and canceled the trip. We'll have to reschedule for a different weekend. What sucks about this is that it's been an annual tradition to go shooting on Martin Luther King JR weekend for years. BAH!

At least now I'll be able to stay home and watch both games.

An indoor range closed for weather?

*sigh* Not a great weekend for Wisconsin all the way around. I'm really bummed - I thought the Pack would win. Now I find out they're closing places down because of cold... Geeze what next!
