Loren, Those temps sound down right tropical to me. Our hi was -2 with a 25 mph breeze, back to -10 now. Suppose to be 30 again in a couple days. I'm a late comer to this forum so I have another dumb question. Why do you call your area Clinton Camp? Rod.

It wasn't named after Bill and Hillary, that's for sure!! LOL
Seeing that it is you , asking I will explain again.
Back shortly before this country won the Revolutionary War, General James Clinton was commanding the Continental Army in the North East. It was decided that Clinton's army would head to Valley Forge to reinforce Washington's Army.
Clinton's plan was to assemble local Militia with his army as he traveled south. This was the overland portion of his trip. When they all got here, the march turned into a river portage. In order to travel down the Susquwhanna, Clinton had to dam up Otsego Lake, the headwater of the Susquenanna River, and build bardges. Clinton set up his Base Camp on what is the yard in front of the barns.
The following spring, they blew the dam and headed down the Susquenana to link up with Col. Buttler's 4th Penn. Regiment, and on to support Washington's Armys at Valley Forge leading to our independance.
You can Google (General James Clinton), for more details.
