    A perfect day for cleaning the shop

    Today is sunny and a warm 60* with a 20 mph wind out of the east. The best possible day for cleaning the shop. I open the back door (on the east side) and the overhead door (on the west side) and get out the leaf blower! Everything gets blown off - lights, benches, floors the tops of tools, even the fridge.

    It's a beautiful thing.

    That seems a quite expedite way of cleaning the shop.
    Unfortunately mine haven't front and back doors and I haven't a leaf blower so
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I spent all day yesterday cleaning up, today I worked there till I couldnt feel my toes, figured, ok, once frost bite sets in, its best to call it a day.
    Florida looks better every day to me.

    Fortunately, I don't have any NN's. Mine are pretty easy going and a couple of them are woodworkers.

    if you had 60 degrees today, that means that maybe we'll have warmer temps here in mn in a couple of weeks...

    I had -18 this morning. It warmed up to a balmy +11 and I am not talking celcius. Can you box up some of that heat and send it my way?...I am willing to pay the shipping...

    And I didnt mention that between Wednesday Feb 18 and Feb 27, we got 40 inches of snow in 4 different snowfalls. Lake Superior is being to generous this year.
