Good Afternoon All,

      Good to hear Ulrichs' help is more than a promise and Jeff is feeling better.

   Sitting in the outfield at Sebring waiting for registration to open. Had a chance to pop downtown and get my ears lowered. Didn't help - scalp is still poking through top of hair. Surprise

      Catch y'all later.  J.R.

My buddy showed up to plow:

 

 

17" and still snowing! Waiting for the County to go by and fill up the end of my driveway. I've got the Irish snow blower all fueled up and ready to go!

That made me chuckle, JR!

Good to see CapeJim in this morning! Thanks for the nice comment, Jim!

Keep yer head down everyone in the storm zone!

Looks like an entire army of snowmen just waiting to rise up. (that's a serious snow you're having there)

Weather guessers are saying potential tornadoes here in northwest Georgia thru midnight. Have the weather radio set to come on, just in case. YeeHaw

Back has eased up a little. Still painful to rise from a reclined position. Sitting is fine, as long as I don't cough or sneeze...OUCH!

One last coffee refill, please. Cowboy

Mine is down to a dull ache from the base of the neck down to the bottom of the shoulder blades. As for the snow, y'all can keep that. We have no use for it down here.

Evenin folks!

Chloe, how about a dozen Buffalo Wings, extra hot, a slice of pepperoni pizza, and a large glass of iced tea to keep me cooled down.

Gee, Terry?  How did you get all the good stuff at your place?  Here in the Finger Lakes region of NYS another winter storm has completely fizzled out....  We had a few flakes for a while, accumulated about 1/4" then it switched over to light drizzle for the rest of the day.  The drizzle is supposed to change to actual showers tonight and leave us about 1/4" of moisture. Jeffrey, I do prefer white cold stuff to huge bugs and spiders, poisonous reptiles, tornadoes, and Hurry Canes...  At least up here in the North we usually have 4 seasons you know.  Ah, there's "Almost Winter, Winter, Still Winter, and Road Construction. Whistling

Rob, hope you stay safe!  Were you able to get all the daily chores done with your back today?

I am trying to decide whether to go get some hobby stuff done in the next hour, or just wait until after the Skype call from the Region tonight...  I guess as long as i watch the clock, I might be able to get a bit done before turning on the Laptop.

Later!

Hashbrown potatoes and scrambled egg whites with onions, please.

***Ray, they all ate, although the few which usually receive special supplemental feed did not get that today. 

There be storms out there towards Alabama. Have seen much worse looking radar imagery, so we shall see. Moved the vehicles well away from the reach of any trees, just in case.

Doing little to nothing here tonight, with emphasis on nothing.

Cheers! Cowboy Rob

Sounds like the bulk of my day.

I have personally found that sometimes that is the most productive thing of all to do!

Howdy ...

Where will the March Diner be located?

The morning storms were powerful. We had tons of hail. Nearby, the bait shop was flooded. The road into town had a tree laying across it. It was terrible in Southern IL north of us.  

JimCG .... Good to see you. I hope you can find more time for the Diner. Yes, it was stormy here. How was it there?

Terry ... That's plenty of snow. Reminds me of trips to Duluth. Also, I once spent a winter in Ironwood, MI that had 5 snow storms with each one having over 3 feet of snow.

Ken ... I hope things go better with your work.

Ulrich .... Hope you have a good month.

Rob .... You mentioned doing nothing and reminded me of when I met Shelley. I was about to ask her out, and I asked her if she had plans for the weekend. She said: "Yes; I plan to do nothing." ... That took the wind out of my sails at the time.

There still are some MIA's and I hope they find their way back soon.

 

 

Edit ... Galaxy is answering my question about the March diner. I'll click on his link.

Evening All,

Had computer problems earlier but MOH fixed them. Somehow my internet connection was turned offTongue Tied. I laid the track today and it works 100% better, I can run a K4s through the entire siding at speed without any derailment problems, so that makes me Big Smile.

I do have a issue though with power. When I put either of the double turnouts in the diverging route the power goes away in the turnout. This is the same for both if them. I've asked a friend to come look at them to try to figure it out.

Terry- Yikes with the snow. I'm with Jeff on the snow.

Rob- Glad your back is doing better. 

 

 

 

Everybody have a good night, 

Curt Webb
