  • G'day all y'all...sunny and -12 at Northern Command this morning. Thankfully, we're NOT up there. Here in the palm of the mit it's a searing 10 degrees and sunny. It appears to be relatively calm and there are no gifts forecast in the near future. Forum software funny: The location below for you to click on the smilies has Confused in place of the one face but still shows the icon if you click on it. I certainly am...

    NASTY looking weather across the Southeast and then moving up the East Coast today and the next couple of days. I'll just stay here and chill out.

    I managed yesterday to use my newly excavated work surface on the bench!

    Well, time to roll. Everyone have a good day, stay off the roads in the storms, looks like much the same path as the twisters a couple weeks ago, as well as lots more.

    • Good morning TomO, Rick, Ron, Karl and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up the lounge for our daily cup of brew and a chat. Best way to start the day.

      8 degrees but sunny here in Rhode Island today. Not a day to be outside. So I guess it will be all bench time.

      Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day ahead. See you all on the RR-L Forum.

        The cat is 18.5 lbs. of fluff and fur. To give you an idea of his size, each plank floor is 10 inches wide and he covers five of them.

        Tom nice pic of your railroad. Keep that fire going sounds really cold there and hope you got some good sleep.

        Ron don't work too hard and enjoy dinner with your mates. Looking forward to some more of your modeling in the
        near future.

        The rest of the Crew have a wonderful day.

        Well it's -6 here this am with projected windchills between -30 & -10 throughout the day; "baby it's cold outside". Only
        going to a +5 all day. The furnace is running lots just to keep the house warm @69 degrees. No outside for me today...no sir!!!!
        Perfect day to be at the bench.

        Have a great day. Stay warm and be well!!!

          • Good Morning all, yesterday I had to fix a garbage disposal leak, so today is printing and designing day. I am continuing on the course of alternatives for the buckets, they are designed to be 3/4 full of water, and in this case with some long neck bottles with adult beverages. I am going to print sometime today a test tank too for the 2-4-4-2 Bachmann loco.

            here is what I am printing today...

            • Good Morning,

              Coffee's brewing and also hot water's ready and an assortment of cold sodas. Eggs any way you like them
              with sausages and english muffins along with butter.

              A brisk 0 degrees this am with a high of 30 later. Possible several inches of the white stuff between this afternoon and Monday
              afternoon; so we'll see if the "weather weenies" are right or not. Started planning the last 32 inches of the layout yesterday and plan on
              starting the back part later. This is the part of the layout that I have waiting to do...the business end of the layout.

              Hope you are all well...have a great day....stay warm and I'll check back later to see what everyones up to.

                Larry, I had to come back because I forgot to grab some coffee and breakfast. {insert [:-banghead] emoticon here.)
                Thanks for getting us started and for the coffee and breakfast.

            • Sun, frost, 4o in Mich.

              No news.

              Be well.

              • Good morning Larry, Karl, and all incoming crew. Where is everyone this morning? I hope Rick is OK. Thanks for opening up the lounge Larry for our daily chat and cup of brew. I was bounceing around waiting for someone to open up. Best way to start the day.

                It is a cold 9 degrees here in Rhode Island, sunny, but very clod. I guess its another day at the bench, not the beach.

                Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day ahead. See you all on the RR-L Forum.

                • Good morning everyone.

                  Increasing clouds, with a high near 33.

                  Louis, I'm OK.
                  Weekends I don't get home till almost 2 AM and try to sleep later.

                  Karl, They say, no news is good news.

                  Les, those buckets with the adult beverages are a great idea and turned out very nicely.

                  Jerry, sounds like a very delicious meal.

                  Larry, thanks for the picture of your handsome BIG kitty.

                  Tom, Mike, Ron, Philip and Roland, hope you are all well.

                  Got into the single digit temps last night at work and it's not much better now.
                  Threw some extra logs on the fire to keep that chill away in the lounge.
                  Lots of talk all week about getting a hugh s@#$ storm today but looks like it will be mostly rain.
                  A cigar and football before work.

                  Have a great day everyone.

                  • Good morning from Wisconsin.

                    Will have the games on this afternoon but not much interest. Programming a locomotive is the plan for the day.

                    Enjoy the day

                    • Morning everyone

                      Larry thanks for the coffee and breakfast.

                      It's cold here in South Jersey cloudy/15.
                      40 later and rain!

                      Maybe some bench time later.

                      Everyone have a great day!!
                      Jerry

                      • Good morning you all,

                        Larry, thanks for coffee and breakfast. Mr. B is one big cat. I hope he doesn't traipse across your layout.

                        Karl, with all that sun, I hope you wear sunblock when you are outside.

                        Jerry, that meal with the neighbors sounds delicious indeed.

                        Les, admiring your cad and 3D printing skills. Nice work.

                        Philip, what have you been up to?

                        Tom, layouts look real nice and lots of fun to operate.

                        Louis, glad you said the bench, not the beach.

                        Ron, did you get to the bench yesterday?

                        Rick, hope your Sunday is without events.

                        We are in Biloxi Mississippi this morning. Drove down yesterday to spend a few days on the coast. Wife likes the casinos; I like the food. Chilly here this morning, but no ice or snow. Snow later today in Newnan. I'm still studying 3D cad. Youtube has a big collection of videos for learning 3D stuff.

                        Have fun and stay warm,
                        mike

                          Actually Mr. B has never even hinted at getting up on the layout. Plus it's about 40 inches off the floor and I don't think he wants to get up that high; he's more of a floor cat and lap cat of course.

                      • Good morning (barely) Larry, Karl, Louis, Rick, Tom, Jerry, Mike and the rest of the crew that drops in later.

                        Put a fresh pot of coffee on.

                        Les, buckets with adult beverages are looking great.

                        Tom, another great layout picture.

                        Mike, didn't make it too the workbench yesterday, but I did finish unpacking and organizing the rest of the "stuff" I brought with me so I have officially ran out of excuses. The plan is to get at the workbench this afternoon while the games are in.

                        It is presently 25F and snowing here in Northern Virginia. Judging from the last snow they got here, could be interesting tomorrow.

                        Have a great day everyone.

                        • Nuttin’ on TV tonight, just thought I’d toss a log on the fire and open up the draft damper a bit and declare the bar is open. Was a beautiful clear sunlit day here in Michigan starting off at 3-4 degrees and just approaching but not quite 30 before the drop.

                          Ran off to pick up an Rx and drifted by the sporting goods store getting a shirt and pants that were not quite the bargain their ad said but did find a very well stocked ammo section, added a few rounds to my supply.

                          How’re y’all in the path of Izzy doing? So lucky ya can live in an area with the right demographics to get a named storm! Here we just call it winter, after all it is just mid-January.

                          Be well, stopping by for am repast in 11-12 hr. L8R

                          • Hey Karl thanks for setting up the bar!!

                            I'll throw on a couple of logs that will keep the place warm till Rick shows up in the morning!

                            Meanwhile I'll have my Old Fashion with the Old Forester bourbon.

                            Nothing got done at the bench today. I watched the games.
                            At least my team the 49er's won in spite of there stupid coach and that's being nice!!
                            Tampa Bay with Tom was a shoe in. Even though there defense got a little lax in the 2nd half.

                            Time to watch another episode of Yellowstone!

                            If your around come on in sit by the fire and have a beverage or two!!
