Mornin' All!

19, feels like 6 and Wonder of Wonders... there is actual sunshine here in the northern mitten!! We had another three or four inches of white gifts late yesterday/overnight, so we're into the rinse-and-repeat cycle with respect to plowing out.

Thanks for opening, Jerry! I checked, and for those who wonder about this sort of thing, that Yardmaster Switch-Thawing Coffee Blend is a great choice for today. Thanks!

Today's agenda involves digging out, heading into the store, digging out, digging out whatever is left when the plow guy gets done here, and

I will admit, though, that sunshine on fresh new snow is beautiful. We don't see much sun in the wintertime....

Make it a great day, All, and stay safe!

A nice sunny day today here in No. Va. Been working in the home office for several hours processing manuscripts for the journal and taking breaks into the shop to do a bit of painting and other details on projects.

Have to work on the magazine next - galley proof arrived and I have to find a shoehorn to make everything fit since there's 3 company pages extra that I did not know about....

Reading and relaxing the rest of the day while puttering about and later settling in for some football in the recliner by the fireplace with a cold beverage will cap off the day.

No trees were harmed in the creation of this post, but several million electrons were mildly inconvenienced.

Good morning Jerry and the rest of the crew. It is 19 degrees and feeling like 5 degrees here in S.E. Michigan. Where is that sun of which you speak, Pete? It has been snowing lightly since we got up and is supposed to continue until about 1 p.m. We had 5" of a wet snow yesterday, then a period of rain, and snow started again just around 10 p.m. last night. It looks like we are approaching another 2" of a light, fluffy snow. I head out when it stops and clean it up.

Today will be a repeat of the last few. Some NMRA computer work mixed in with some time at the modeling bench. We might start another railroad themed jig saw puzzle somewhere in there, too.

I see that Martin posted some progress photos of his Challenge Projects in the main thread. Maybe he saw my slightly annoying prodding in yesterday's lounge. Either way, the progress looked good.

Have a great day!

Good morning from So. Wisconsin where it is cold, 4f degrees with wind chill of -15 and lower. Thanks Jerry, excellent breakfast. Grandson has a hockey game at 11 and then the day is mine.

Enjoy your day

22, 15 mph wind from NNE, feels like 9 and we're still being hit now and then with a little bit of snow.

Had a 17" drift right outside the back door yesterday and 6-8 inches on level ground. Filed a claim with the snow insurance and the new John Deere paid off quickly and effortlessly. Today's 2-3 inches of new stuff is gone with very little effort.

The 4th of my quartet of RS-36s is on the foam pad waiting it's decals. Then I need to touch up the paint on them and clear coat with a satin like finish and then eventually some slight weathering as they're reflecting nearly new units on the railroad. Still contemplating the handrails, should I risk rath from the main floor (odor) if I use the adhesion promoter before I paint them or take 'em on as it is with the Tamiya green and white? I really want to fight the 90% and put them aside thing that afflicts much of what I start in the hobby. I should change the name to the Kentucky Southern Railway, the 90% line... I have a Baldwin in that state sitting here right now, painted with a spray can to avoid getting the airbrush out, still looks good. I finally got some decals made in my recent order to Highball Graphics and must say it is creeping past the 92% mark. Some dirt and ugly put on it and it should be ready to go.

the Doll's daughter and the son in law that had surgery in Dec are coming. Her 17 yr old is going to cook for us. Their 10 year old, going on 6, will be self anesthetized in the corner somewhere with his electronic numbing device.... I'd not mentioned lately, my brother that had the kidney out a few weeks ago got a green light and all clear from his surgeon. Fingers crossed on a some clear health, my dizzy side is in retreat lately, too. One day, sometimes one hour, at a time.

We watched a decent movie last night I recorded off of Turner, The Deep Six with Alan Ladd as a Naval reserve officer called back to duty in WW-II and his conflicts over being raised as a Quaker. Oh yeah, and my SPARTANS handled TomO's Badgers in fine fashion Friday night. Flawless at home, let's see how the road show goes...Jim's PU crew dinged them real good a week ago in West Lafayette.

Everyone have a good day, enjoy the sun, Pete...et al.

Safe and warm are the words of the day.

Good afternoon all from the frozen tundra. Thanks for opening up Jerry. I grabbed a cup before I ran out this morning. It was -9 with a -26 windchill earlier. That'll put some frost on your pumpkin! It really warmed up, 7 with a -16 windchill right now. Just got back from Office Depot, they had an in store rebate and I had my receipt for the wiFi extender I bought 3 days ago. Well worth the trip back there.

The slush we had yesterday morning is just sheets of ice in parking lots and driveways today.

A little football this afternoon, and a break from the computer. Maybe some whittlin'!

Have a Super day!

Good afternoon, Jerry and crew. We went out for brunch today, so I'm late checking in. We're in the low 50's today - it's nice being in Tidewater Virginia.

I'm getting ready to download Turbo Tax. It's not my favorite time of year, but I just want to get it over with, so I can get on with some MRRing.

I still haven't figured out what I'm going to do in this year's group Challenge. My problem is too many potential projects to pick from. Or it may be that my workbench is so cluttered I can't find something to work on.

Have a good day.

George, recent news items about TurboTax and Intuit are making me reconsider using that particular product. Intuit is NOT a company I want to support.

After blowing out the driveway from about 4" of nice cold powder, I continued the 'recovery actions' from being away for 10 days. I'm almost all caught up. Now I'll head downstairs to think about a new project, while collecting and updating my shopping list for Springfield.

Good evening, all. We got home from a convention just at sunset, to find 4" of wet snow on the driveway. It's mostly cleared, I'll finish it in the morning. Now I should spend a few minutes with the airbrush before it gets any colder.
