It started snowing yesterday around 4:30 and hasn't quit. The main "storm" passed but the wind has shifted to be from the West crossing Lake MI and making lake effect that will last the next 24-36 hours when another "disturbance" is to cross thru and intensify the snow by tomorrow night. 40-50 mph winds can create a lot of snow.

Frustration in modeling, I used some lacquer thinner yesterday and the Doll got wound up from it, so. Another "tool", paint of some types, has left my tool kit. I need to put a quick change adapter on the air line of the air eraser and of course my wrenches are a quick walk out to the barn, but I ain't ready to trek out there yet.

No plans, may try to clear snow if I get bored enough in the house.

Everyone be well and safe.

Good morning folks from a cold spot in Wisconsin. The weather Channel app is the warmest of the 3 I look at. (Yes, I need a life) is showing +6f degrees and the wind chills is at -12. Roughly 6Ē of white wet flakes from above is in the driveway and is now frozen.

Not sure what I plan to do today, I feel like today should be a exercise free day. Yes, a great idea. Down to the trainroom after some food.

Good Day,

Rick enjoy your visit with Mom and your stereo time latter. Thanks for the coffee.

Karl the weather people like to push the panic button sometimes; I think they like to see how people will react. I'm expecting gas prices to at least double by summer; given the current state of affairs. Careful playing in the snow.

Mike if you have the modeling "itch" then why not "scratch it". Nice you got to actually go to a Club meeting in person; we need more of that.

Philip congrats on the nice tree find. Good luck with the impending weather coming your way.

Jerry how's the pulley system coming along, well I hope.

Tom you guys really get cold..brr. Enjoy your time in the train room making progress.

To the rest of the Crew have a great day.

A mild 37 this morning in New York with a high of 41...melt, snow, melt! Ok I'm ready for Spring now!!! Hopefully we don't get Karl's weather in a few days. Not much going on today, maybe some bench time latter.

Have a wonderful day everyone. Be safe, stay healthy, keep warm, and careful out in the snow.

Pick 16-18-25 for lotto, thatís our temp, wind speed and gusting to numbers. Fun day

Ran snow machine and it did well except the whiz-bang power discharge chute whizzes but wonít spin. Broke a cable Mickey Mouse put in the mechanical parts. Sort of like an elevator cable in an airplane. Glad it wasnít. Iíll manually move it this weekend and theyíll come get it Tuesday since they couldnít show me how to fix it. Didnít have proper parts it seemed either.

Trip to town was fun in the blowing snow, a little better coming home. I stayed off drifting side roads.

I did remember wrenches while outside.

Good morning or evening wherever in the world you are.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Sunny, with a high near 42.
Tonight and tomorrow is when the fun starts again with a predicted 4-8".

It's Monday again.

Have a great day everyone.

More snow today, the lake effect mechanism is in full textbook operation thru most of the day into tomorrow.

Might have to get out and take another swipe at the accumulation, otherwise. Inside and bored.

Everyone be safe. Stay well.

Good morning from Wisconsin.

Rick be safe out on the trains.

Modeling is barely moving along. I put together the final 3 bases for the wet/dry bins and then played in the pool again with the grandkids. Yesterday I declared was exercise free day, today is a catch up day. The wind chills today will not get out of the negatives. I did do an inventory with pictures of the freezer for Terry. She will be home by Friday next week as her jab appointment is on Sunday the 14th. She wanted to make sure we have food. My grocery bill has been around $50 a week and her order yesterday was 3 times that. The SIL will go pick it up as curbside delivery at the store.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Best wishes for an eventless day.

The forecast for today is 62F, cloudy and 6% chance for rain. Where in the world do they get 6%? Crazy weather people.

Picked up some fresh farm eggs from a friend, so going to make pasta today. I haven't decided what to cook with it. My Son recommends a brown butter sauce...tough decisions we face.

Have fun and stay safe,
mike

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.
Be careful out there among the English!

Weather in South Jersey sunny/39, later 44.
Then the s#w hits the fan again!!

Will try to get another stand built for the pulleys in the Mill today. Progress is slow but moving forward.

Larry did you get my email??

Everyone have a great day!!

Greetings Gents,

Rick careful out on the rails and watch out for stupid people; they're everywhere. Thanks also for the coffee.

Karl careful playing in the snow!! I sympathize with you; I'm well acquainted with "lake effect snow" and it stinks.

Tom sometimes it's good to take a break from the trains; tends to give you a fresh perspective. Bet you can't wait until Terry gets back home!

Mike homemade pasta...nothing like it!! Brown-butter sauce would be a nice change of pace and an Alfredo sauce would be good too.

Jerry slow progress is still progress. Yes I read your email this morning and responded; thanks.

To the rest of the Crew have a wonderful day.

A windy and brisk 27 this morning with a high of 30; but NO snow; at least not until tomorrow. Taking life easy today and work progresses on J.D.s.

Have a great day. Stay warm, be safe, stay healthy, and careful out in the snow.

Good morning or evening wherever in the world you are.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

S@#$, mainly between 7am and 4pm. High near 33. Northeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming north in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total daytime s&^% accumulation of 3 to 5 inches possible.
At least the accumulation has been lowered from yesterday.

Pretty much an uneventful day at work yesterday

Watching the game at home after work.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning Rick and fellow Crew. Itís a cool morning in Wisconsin at now -14f degrees and with the wind chill at -25 per the Weather Channel app. Not fun.

The granddaughter is here as her brother has a hockey game this morning about an hour away. Parents only so Harper is with me as she was dropped off about an hour ago. She hasnít stopped talking since. I told her to read a book and at 7 we can go into the pool. Problem is she reads the book out loud.

Enjoy your day, Rick be safe out there on the rails.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Last night I received a call from Joe Batson's wife saying JoeBTX had passed on Friday after struggling with a long illness. Joe was my best friend.

Stay safe,
mike

So sorry, Mike, for your loss. Itís a jolt to lose long time friends even when they have been ill itís not easy.

Quite a cold day on tap here, currently itís 3 degrees with a crystalline quality to the air and a small bit of sun thru the mostly cloud cover giving a deceptive warm glow to the snow covered landscape. The relentless wind has let up. The snow has relented as well.

Everyone have a good day. Be safe and stay well.
