53 degrees at the High School down the road yesterday, there are buds on my lilac bush by the shop. Then there is today....heavy rain all night flooded the heck out of everything,the horse pasture across is over run and water is in the front yard next door, lots of cars there, wonder if they have basement flooding.

Was still 50 at mid night as that rain began, now it's 4:45 and we've had a day of rain/sleet/ice/slush/rain/wind in double digits. Current reading 32 with snow and sleet. Winds from NNE at 16.

I "had" to go out to Best Buy for a new monitor for the computer and found 3-6 inches of slush on the state hwy and detoured around what I'm sure would be a flood. Creeks are running like the first warm storm in the Spring. More rain, wind and ice still forecast. Fingers crossed the ice relents and we keep power. We have had a nice stretch of warmer weather and it's been appreciated and I'm sure the good will created will be squandered soon enough. Used 4 wheel drive all the way and still had a sqirmy spot or two in the slush.

I did get the new, high res monitor going, 27" and looks good.

Duluth web cam shows any incoming boats are headed to winter layout, the Soo Locks shut down the 15th until March.

Work bench time, and renew the work room from the monitor change.

Karl, I have not had much luck catching boats on the Duluth cameras this season. Much better seeing the boats in the Soo locks. thanks
I was wondering when the locks close for the season.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and Cherry Diet Dr. Pepper are ready to go.

Crazy weather for January here again.
Showers and thunderstorms before 9am, then a slight chance of showers between 9am and 10am. Some of the storms could produce gusty winds. Temperature falling to around 53 by 5pm. Breezy, with a west wind 15 to 21 mph, with gusts as high as 41 mph.

Be careful and stay safe with this wild weather which seems to be everywhere.

Have a great day everyone.

We survived the ice storm with our power staying on, sleet and snow were more prevalent than freezing rain.

Everyone have a good day, dry and warm.

Good morning all, Rick thanks for getting us going. So. Wisconsin missed the big storm and thatís a good thing. Cave day here as most of the area things to do today were cancelled because of the storm warnings. Have a great day.

Good morning all!
Went from 66 to 35 degrees...like a cop shooting radar at speeders! very windy yesterday. Thankful the roof is still intact!

Thanks for the coffee Rick.

Save us some cake Jerry!

I have a bashed short flat ready for paint, started life as a cattle car On30. Finally installed the stake pockets and posts. Chopped the hunkered down frames to fit. Turned out ok.

Have a great Sunday!
Philip

Howdy folks,

Rick, thanks for opening.

It's cold this morning, but headed to 65F this afternoon. High clouds so the sun is shining through. Hope folks in cold areas stay warm and off the ice.

Clearing out office and hobby room today in preparation for Mom to move in. It is overwhelming.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and Cherry Diet Dr. Pepper are ready to go.

Partly sunny, with a high near 50.

Nice seeing the lounge full.

Glad no one was negatively impacted by the weather.

Have a great day everyone.

Clouds and cold, a bit of dusty white but little to worry about, roads said to be "ok" not great yet.

Off to OPS at Andy Keeney's this morning. See DEC's MRH, it's the cover article.

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Weather in South jersey cloudy/41. Later on 51.

Maybe a trip to the beach if the rain doesn't spoil it.

I finished the other sides to the building so now I can figure out what to do with it next.

Here is Diane with 9 of her grandkids.




Everyone have a great day!!

Good morning from So. Wisconsin where the white stuff is about 2-3Ē deep and about 12-14Ē short of what we were told to expect. Lots of ice under the snow cover so spent time after snow blowing spreading sand on the entire driveway almost 1/2 mile long through the woods where the wind blows stuff into drifts. We werenít expecting that when we moved the driveway in October.

Enjoy your day
TomO
