    Storm. We're gonna get hammered

    Latest update. Calling for 10-18 inches of snowfall and ICE

    I had two of my sons over on my current job putting up base today. They came home at 2:00, not wanting to get stuck away from home.
    Snow flakes are hitting my shop, sounds like rain hitting it, they are so big and heavy.

    State maintence has not been down our slick road today. Too busy elsewhere I guess.
    Power lines are in fair shape so far------

    That looks bad. I just went out on my back deck in my shorts and t-shirt to check the pool for ice over. None. Be safe and stay dry and warm. Hot todies are the rule of the day.

    Gosh, I just came in from sitting out back by the seawall overlooking the Gulf of Mexico . . . now let's see . . . where did I put my shoes that I haven't worn for six weeks?

    Hey Steve,
    Hunker down and stay warm. Hope your power holds up!

    THe storm passed thru here last night. We are 20 degrees below normal. Got a couple of inches of snow, which is a lot for the desert.

    Just wait till hurricane season and see who's laughing.

    Our temp is still around 36 degrees but it has been raining hard all day even though the forecast is for colder and lots of ice.
    My shop has a lot of water on the floor. It is a walk-out basement arrangement. Where the main line for the well comes into the pressure tank, throught the concrete wall, the foam sealant around the pipe has failed and water is dribbling in. Very large puddle in shop. Good thing I don't sweep very often, the shavings are soaking up a lot of it.
    If we get the ice and snow, I may be here all day talking.

    Me too!! Can't work in the shop when its dark, and no electrons to run these tailed tools.

    Tod's probably getting hammered too
    Everything seems to be north and east of springfield for the moment.

    Tod may be outside rounding up the coons.
