Good morning from very white covered So. Wisconsin, where we got anywhere from 3 to 7 inches., had zip before last night. Have not been outside yet, leaving for the g/sonís hockey practice in a few minutes. Looks deeper than what they are saying. Now the deep cold move in, canít wait.

The diet Pepper is very needed this morning, thanks Rick.

Enjoy your day

Mother Nature finally moved the needle out off the ==no snow, no snow, no snow== skipping and we finally have a white outlook here after going 6-7 weeks since we had snow. We have had, and are continuing to receive, SNOW!! Itís light textured like powder but has accumulated enough to cover the grass and it looked like there was 3+ inches when I went out to clear off the Dolls car. I hope the needle doesnít stick again, but the forecast does have the S word in it for mid week and very few numbers for the temps. Wind out of the NE today is about 12mph and feels like 3.

Stay warm all, have a good day.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Peppers are ready to go.

Lot's of weather here in Joisey today.
Raining now and temps will go almost into the 50's.
Late in the morning the rain will stop but the temps will start to plummet with wind gusts of 20+ mph.
Early tomorrow AM temps will be in the single digits.

If you're getting s@#$ where you're at please be careful.

Even with all this bad weather the trains will still be packed.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Salmon crepes with cream cheese sauce are on the counter. Help yourself.

It is cold this morning at 28F. The wind has been howling for the last few days. Brrrrr.

Headed to the Plano Train Show this morning. The Texas Western has a table of RR stuff to sell, and today is my shift. May get to wander around a bit and look for some cool O scale stuff.

Stay warm,
Mike

-3 at the back window this morning with a breeze, chill at -12. No new snow since yesterday and the drive is still cleared off. The sun is out so it LOOKS nice out the windows.

Todayís plan is to stick close today until mid afternoon when weíre taking my son and his gal out for something at a new pizza joint near where he lives.

Everyone have a good day. Stay warm and safe.

Howdy,

I guess if I asked how you live when so cold, you would respond witch how do you survive July and August in Texas. Stay warm my friends.

Mike

So. Wisconsin at 4 am tomorrow they say the real temperature will be -6f degrees but the wind chill will be -14. Thatís the tough part. You can handle 0 real temperatures because you dress for it and with sun it can be comfortable. Wind chills are just plain miserable as that seems to go right through you. The temperature in the house is 72 right now.

+110 f degrees in Austin where my son lives in August because of humidity is tougher to handle then 110 in either Cave Creek, Az. or Las Vegas where my brother has homes. But even the dry heat IMO is unbearable. What I find funny is how cold the house is with the AC cooling to 80 when itís over 100.

To each our own. Neither my brother or son want to come visit in the winter because they have accumutated to their warmers temps. Both of course grew up in the Chicago area and North Central Wisconsin.

It is what makes the world go round

Good evening of a Profootball Sunday. I am not a real drinker because I might have 3 or 4 beers a year. The real hard stuff I donít know, just what my brother adds to our bar collection. The one beer I like is Spotted Cow from the New Glarus Brewery in Wisconsin. It is a nice light but not weak beer. There is some in the frig and to me the colder the better. So during the 4th quarter of the currently playing game or if you are in mourning or celebrating the terrible missed calls in the NO/Ram game, the beer here is cold.

Tom

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Peppers are ready to go.

Single digits in Joisey now and will only get into the teens later but the winds are still blowing at 20+ mph.
Put on an extra layer of clothes for work today.

Tom, sorry I missed the beer, but came home from work and plopped onto the sofa to watch the game without checking into the forum.

I don't think I could handle either extreme in temps any more.
Something more moderate but definitely a little warmer than where I'm at now seems best.
I plan on doing more research on where to live after I retire in a couple more years.

Have a great day everyone.
