    Coffee's on with water for tea also a large stack of toast for Walt with butter and jam for his boyish figure, I'm having a couple eggs over easy. All the storms last night were interesting and my son was down town taking pictures of the lighting. Today it's helping Lucy price pictures for sale Sat. Have a good day .Tom

    Good morning all. I made breakfast for my eldest this morning, so I'll set some pancakes and bacon on the counter as well.

    I was up past 11, working on High St. and again early this morning, but the weather on the NH seacoast had no drama - sunny till I drove to Haverhill and boarded my commuter train, overcast now. If it stays fair I'll probably work on my boat tonight rather than the RR, but the forecast isn't sure.

      Good morning, Tom and crew. The weather for the northeast doesn't look good. We have t-storms forecast here for later today.

      Our grandson is graduating from high school tomorrow, so we're driving up to northern Virginia today. The question is when to leave to miss the weather and rush hour traffic.

      Have a good day.

      Flying is the 2nd greatest thrill known to man. Landing is the first.

        Batten down the hatches. Big storms predicted for tonight in the East.

        Had some great fried calms in Hyannis yesterday and the best stuffed quahog ever! Sat outside, right next to the water. Now we'll see about another place to go when Walt comes East this summer.

        I've got my mower to fix this morning with the $100 part [:-censored].

          Morning Tom and the Rest of the RR-L Crew. That storm, or part of it, went through here early this morning but we didn't really get anything but a couple of mild thunderstorms. The majority of it was up north and in Michigan. Batten the Hatches DAVE that could be a doozer.

          It did cool down a bit from the 89 degrees of yesterday. That's what fed that storm. It's damp out from the rain so no outside work today. Mary is busy doing some painting of doors in the garage. I'll sit and drink my cup of coffee as I already had my tea and toast. Don't knock it, I've lost 5 pounds and finally staying below 200.

          Still planning a two week vacation in New England later this summer. Plans of mice and men as it goes. In the meantime I'm working on the Nick's Flop House kit which is a re-make of sorts of the Boarding House kit which we don't produce anymore.

          Everyone have a FUN and SAFE day in the Train Yard.

            2 1/2 inches of rain here overnight in quite a storm. At one time it rained over an inch in 30 minutes as I had checked out the window just after 11 and the rain guage showed 1/2 inch and just after the news was over it was at 1 3/4. One of the interstate highways in the area had flooding enough to close it down in the night.

            Bright sun and fresh air this am makes it a pleasant day.

            Everyone have a good day.

            BE SAFE!!

              Mornin' (afternoon?),

              We just had some heavy rain pass through (Palmyra, north of Philly on the Jersey side). I'm calmly waiting to see if I'm on water duty in my basement tonight / tomorrow morning. Nothing much on the floor that could be damaged but it's annoying.

              I did get some modeling done last night but I think tonight I'll be working on a church website (now my old church). The wife will be out for a while tomorrow night so maybe I'll get to play some then after I get the boy to sleep. The weekend is shot as far as playing with trains is concerned.

              Good day all!
