20° here in Upstate NY this morning, we have a dusting of snow and a chance of snow showers today may give up to 1/2". The high temperature today is to get up to about 33°. They say starting late Saturday into Sunday we could get 1 to 2ft of snow.

Another day yesterday where I was on the road all day, I am hoping today to be able to spend time here at home. It has been a busy and productive week.

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone.

Good Morning from Trinity, 45 and cloudy, 60% chance of rain and 69 for the high. Yesterday's rain didn't happen, we had sunshine instead. Beautiful day and work took precedence over play.
Today is a day off, we have to run into Huntsville for groceries and medicine.

Hope everyone has a blessed day,
Ken

morning all. 31 to start, high ??? who knows. Was upper thirties yesterday. But we were to have snow this morning and … nothing. What happens to all our storms? Oh well, maybe it's snowing in the mountains just too dark to tell yet.
Worked around the shop, got started on the yellow loader, going to be quite the job, hoses are hard to get to and very, very tight. Four foot of pipe one a 1 1/4 inch wrench and all I could do to break one fitting loose, hope the rest aren't that tight.
Gwyn's home and breakfast it waiting , so have a good FRIDAY!
GOD BLESS. Dean

Whacked another 'yote yesterday!:D

good morning gang. It's 29º here with clouds. Snow began last evening about 5PM and the roads were instantly slick. On my way home at 6PM a newish Mustang spun out on a hill. Luckily didn't wind up in the ditch or take anybody out. Sue and I had no issues. Ended up with about 2" of fresh powder. I knew I'd have to plow in the morning and went to bed early, but got a case of no-sleepums here too. My arse is draggin'. :eek: Up a bit early and still late to work, but nobody's here so it doesn't really matter. Tyler is in the air, somewhere over the Atlantic I would guess. Gets into Dulles about 3PM. I figure with TSA and Customs, we'll get out about 4-4:30. Wonderful time to catch a Friday rush hour home.:rolleyes: Ah well, at least I get out of work a bit early.

More snow is predicted for the weekend. I have to work at the shop Sat and do a gun drawing Sunday. Won't be much of a weekend.:( Guess I'll make the best of it. Need to bring the deer hind quarters inside so they don't freeze in the shed. Hopefully I'll get them de-boned and begin curing them tomorrow. Might even get some sausage made too. Good thing to do on cold, snowy day.

Well, the donuts aren't getting made with me on here. Better run. Have a good one!

Good morning everyone....at the shop and ready to call it a day and it just got started. Parts I built yesterday were wrong because of wrong numbers given....customer sent my buddy text with dimensions of part and he made a print from it and of coarse it was wrong....I had a bad feeling about it. oh well they gonna eat those parts. Now they are even hotter and I got to go find material.
Had to put a new turn signal/dimmer switch in my truck yesterday because my low beams quit....got it all together and lights worked but wipers and washer sprayed non stop:mad: brand new bad switch. Got that swapped out this morning.

Not sure if I'm ready for the snowpocolyse or not but it doesn't matter if it's coming it's coming. Maybe I'll get to stay home.:D

Well off to find some steel and try round 2 on the hot parts.

Have a good day!

Good morning, GoGo. It's 38 in Louisville, going to 43 with heavy cloud cover today. It looks like tomorrow's precip here will be rain. I suspect it'll be snow for Doug and TAJ. With Snowmageddon approaching, a lot of folks in Louisville have been remembering the Martin Luther King storm that hit this area Jan. 17, 1994, 25 years ago. We got 16 inches of snow all in about 24 hours. Then when the snow stopped, the temperature dropped to 22 below zero. I had been divorced 12-18 months and because of the long weekend I took my two daughters skiing at Gen. Butler State Park, about 50 miles east of Louisville. The storm hit while we were there and it was 2-3 days before we were able to get off the "mountain" and back to Louisville. The storms and arctic air currently headed east sound potentially as bad, at least for certain communities.

Working from home today. Big gun show at the fairgrounds this weekend. I had planned to go with my two college buds, but one of them has had some heart problems flare up, so we've canceled those plans. I may or may not go by myself. The weather is going to mean a small turnout of buyers, but the table fees are high enough that it's hard to get sellers to haggle, at least in my experience. If I'm smart, I'll stay home and reload some of what I already have; I could do that for about a month and still have components to spare.

Y'all have a good'n and be safe out there.

GOOD morning from the sticks of the Monsoon section in Kentucky. No rain at the moment but we had rain all day yesterday and it is muddy all the way to the bottom. I went to the Funeral house last night to see a 97 year old ww 2 veteran not many folks there as the family is involved in a lot of hate for each other. As usual.

I have to get out to the Barn to feed Judy Brown's little calf. She is going to visit her 93 year old Mom in the Nurs home and doesn't want to wade mud. I did not catch my Coon in the trap yesterday maybe he is in there today. He loves Otis the Cats food and I'm trying to get rid of him.
No Skruske yet to tell us his adventures in the wild west. Charlie sounds like he has a full day ...made me wince to even read it.
SNOW in the forecast for tomorrow night so i better go buy a loaf of bread after I feed the damcows.

Great morning all,

Mostly clear with 56° and a later high near 76° here in da trailerhood.

Chores got handled yesterday morn. DD has been playing house & moving stuff around.:rolleyes: I w-ww-wor- took apart the furnace & determined the control board has toasted itself. Common problem with this particular model. New gooder made board is $90.

Went flea marketing and got a few things every "camper" needs. Debra Dearest is pleased she has genuine cable TV. We needed a longer sewer hose since pulling the outhouse handle & letting it fly with close neighbor seems to be frowned upon. Didnt help when I said where I'm from in Kentucky we call it recycling :rolleyes:I

Going on a ride today. Them Canadians are leading the way out to the Barry Goldwater Range. You need special permits for that so you don't surprise the U.S. Marines while they are carrying fully automagic weapons & other noisy things. Deb is taking along 2 dozen cookies to tread for MREs.

43º and cloudy in the hollow. Looks like we are south of the snow, but will get plenty more rain. My wife and I have planned for a birding evet in Paris TN this W/E, but 100% rain was unattractive to us, so we bailed out. Last week I mentioned my trials with the Jenn Aire down draft. SKruske helped me find the likely part online and I decided to take a chance and order it. It did arrive and yesterday I decided to see if it would work. Turned out to be close, but no cigar. When I got the panel opened I could see that some of the modules were not on the replacement part. I called the manufacturer, but could get no help or satisfaction. I can return the new motherboard with only a 5 restocking fee, but if has obviously been tried they won't take it back. I chose to roll the dice again and will have a tech that I somewhat trust coming here today to see if he thinks it may work anyway. This is a $70 service call gamble. But he can probably either see that it won't work or be able to try it without screwing it up. A replacement range is going to be north of $3000, so to me it's still worth a try. I'll report on the success or failure.


G'day Y'all,
Rick

Morning

Good morning all. It's 34 in Indy heading for ice/snow tonight. In that order. Depending on who you believe we'll get up to 1/2" of ice overnight followed by 5-7" of snow. Julie pointed out we already have eggs, milk, and bread which will keep me from having to beat up some old lady at the grocery store. No doubt, we'll still have the same eggs, milk, and bread by the time this storm is over. I'm not telling her the milk is outdated and probably gone bad or she'd go to the grocery battle. She's at the hospital with her 90-something friend who's having a heart cath this morning. They think she needs a heart valve replaced but don't know if she'd survive the surgery. Could be a full day without supervision for me and Too.

Today was the monthly former coworkers breakfast. I attend about once every 3-4 months. I went this morning to get the inside info on the snow/ice storm. One of the guys plays a big role in the City's preparation for bad weather. He said "it ain't gonna' be good! We've only got 15K tons of salt on hand". They'll start spreading it about 11:00 tonight.

Get your boat or sled ready, whichever you're gonna' need. Have a good day.

43° and 71% - Smack dab in de middle here. Maybe 2" of ice and the rest snow? That is about as slick as I've driven on.....snow over ice has a coefficient of friction in the negative #s.
We were in the grocery last night a bit further N but the locals must not have rcvd the memo. No fist fights or two shoppers tearing the last loaf apart. And there I was ready w my phone/video cam/blue tooth and GGVG hand-held device. I did score some Creme Brulee for (coffee). It's very scarce at times.

Hey, how about that tailgate GMC has developed? Looks pretty slick to me.

Son and family coming up tomorrow for lunch and afternoon of games.

JR? You haven't mentioned Bouncer on the feed run, only Otis. I hope my fav cool cat is still w us.
I like your "Kaintuck Recycling" comment Scott.
My Cuz has weathered the open heart and is on the recovery road as any healthy, 53 yo, fit, farmer should be. Other Cuz will have a hernia repair today but he has a factory job and only fills in on occasion at the homestead. His FIL had a knee replaced Wed, so a busy time w procedures.
Time to check in on my felines.
Tom out.

PS. Only 30 million pounds of salt? Indy IS large. I suggested to Dinah we get some sand and mix in the ice melt. I could drive and she could shovel off the back of the pickup....I don't think she has the adventuresome, getter done attitude that JB is purported to have - from the look I got. I ducked just in time as it took out the N wall. It's kinda chilly in here now...:/....go figure. Something about don't come knocking..... I wonder what she meant by that?

TAJ, When I worked at the township, that is how we spread non skid on the roads. It was from the back of a dump truck and tilted. Some hills were steep enough that they had to back up to get traction from the grit. Once we had a spin out backing up the hill. We were tossed into a snow bank when the truck landed on its side. OSHA would have had a field day.
