Hi Johnny,
  That's what I figure.. now, the more snow the better... and make it wet and deeeeeeep.
You can send the wind somewhere else, I wouldn't mind.
 I try to ask for relays... and I have a couple of stations that do pretty well with that to...
K2HT in MO.. or KE6OIO in CA... and the best way would be to simply call a station that is loud
to you.. with.. "XXXX de AC0BQ relay pse?"
They should then break the net.. and let me know.. that they can relay.. a station in..
IF that doesn't work, wait a bit.. and try another station...
same way.
I am working to get a decent antenna in the air... and all kidding aside.. the weather isn't helping much.
I just don't want to climb, with wind chill below zero. Had my hands freeze up... at 200 ft one time.. not fun...
They were just claw like... but I couldn't move my fingers.... it was a good thing I was done... cause I was done
for that day. Didn't much like that tower after that.
I guess you could always try an email... but I  seldom have email open during the net... but I could start watching for new stuff on my phone... I guess.
 I think a new antenna here will help out a lot.
Thank you Johnny,

Have a great day,

Nice net Dale 
I have a question.
Last week I could almost hear you, but qsb made it rough. Although I could hear several checkin ops. What is the proper way to ask for a relay? Is their a Q code? I wanted to relay in, but didn't know how to?

We have 6 or 8 more inches of wet snow today and big drifts. 
Heck if this wx keeps up I may get some projects finished !

We had a good net today, with visibility of quarter mile in blowing and drifting snow, and a temp of 25F...
So the first check ins were welcome.. and it just got better as we went along.
with temps reporting from 63-65-35-25  and I know that last call can't be
right, so a correction is in order.
A couple of the stations were very adeptly relayed in by K2HT, and K0DTJ.. thank you.
Cu next Thurs...

Have a great day,
