Good morning crew from snowing N.E. Indiana. The 1-2" looks like 4-5" so far to me. The coffee urn is READY with Ashpit Blend yet again. The Special is a short stack, scrambled eggs, corned beef hash, and a blueberry muffin.

Tomorrow is my favorite holiday. Groundhog Day! After Groundhog Day and the Daytona 500, things always look a little brighter.

I worked on the lounge structure a little yesterday, and am waiting for the post office to go back online. I ordered some furniture that I need to get some seating on the lower deck. We have a new mail lady which I am very happy with. So far she hasn't run over any pet on the driveway, tossed packages out of the window, or 'honked; the horn' nonstop while whistling through the driveway, So far, so good!

Have a Super day!

Good morning, Jim and crew. We're going to see temps in the 40's today. We have some errands to run. It looks like our first stop will be Costco, too early to hit the sample tables.

Have a good day.

Good morning Jim, George and the rest of the snowy RR-L Crew Yep, about 3 inches on the ground but at least it's warmed to15 degrees out.

Just tea and toast this morning. Have coffee in a bit. Ground Hog is FROZEN in his hole. He ain't coming out for no reason.

Here's a photo of my latest 3D print endevor. A two part detail for the new kit coming soon in O scale. Ed Traxler did the main design work on this but as a total kit. I assembled it and added quite a few pieces to make what you see.

Well, back to the grindstone. Everyone have a Safe and Fun day in the Train Yard. Bruce and Bonnie have a safe trip down to the warm area.


In the Crossroads of America.

Good morning Crew, Jim thanks for opening. So. Wisconsin has warmed up to -1 now and no wind chill. We did get a couples inches of snow that needs to be removed. 40ís tomorrow to start the ďMeltĒ. The weather guy said this morning there most likely will flooding!

Only need milk (& a donut) at the stores today and maybe a trip to the LHS for no real need. The horses are to be fed and the teenager mucking out the stalls gets a bonus today. He used one of the plows to get one of the outdoor corrals cleared so the horses can get outside. The indoor arena is a good size but outside is better. I will be heading to the cave again. Enjoy your day.

Darn, Walt! I could have used those instead of what came with the FSM Jacob's Fuel kit! They look great.

-2 and hazy sun and calm this morning. Itís still winter. The regional natural gas provider had a major explosion and fire in one of their distribution stations in the metro Detroit area that caused a major scare for most users of gas, no effect on my propane supply, The energy company has been growing their distribution at a fever pitch but appears not to have a good backup in place if such an emergency or worse happens. They should invest, IMHO, more in their basic infrastructure than all the pie in the sky solar and windmills. The same company is my electrical supplier and their line here has had more outages since weíve lived here than anywhere else either of us has had in our lives.

Headed out with the Doll shortly, should work on the layout but there is always later. Corned beef hash and an egg, Jim, would suit me fine....better than the 1:1 Cheerios that sit in front of me.

Everyone have a great day. Pray for clouds in Pennsylvania tomorrow, canít have that fat rat seeing his shadow....

Walt, that wastegate looks terrific!  What is the actual diameter of the control wheel?

Good afternoon from Cordele, Georgia. The temperature is a nice 60 degrees.

We made it thru Atlanta with only about a 5 minute slow down. I think that is a record for us.

Tomorrow we will reach our son's house just south of Tampa.

Time to put my feet up and take a nap before we head out to a Bar-b-Que joint that has a good local reputation.

Enjoy the rest of the day!
