Good morning from what really now is the frozen tundra. It is 2f degrees
with the wind chill at -18. The temps will be going up in So. Wisconsin but
the winds will be too. The weather information is saying the wind chills will
be anywhere from -15 and colder all day.

Yesterday I did not spend more then 30 minutes in the trainroom but I will
fix that today. The grandson has a hockey game at 11 but that is all I have
Planned today. Enjoy your day, throw some logs on a fire!

Good morning folks,

Tom, thanks for getting us going.

It's a bright cold morning at 33F headed to 54F. After reading the forecasts from the group, I will not complain about a cold 54F. Brrrr.

More packing today, but still don't see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning,

Philip, thanks for breakfast. Good!

It's a cold 35F on the Brazos, headed to 54F this afternoon. No rain today.

Still slugging away on hobby room. Moved spray booth to garage for now. Packing up all HO details, kits, and equipment, but leaving On30 accessible. Sadly, layout is out for the time being. I'll get to run equipment at Joe Batson's layout I hope.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning everyone.

Philip, thanks for getting us started and for the coffee and breakfast.

Sunny, with a high near 31.

Fire feels good after coming in from the cold walking the dog.

Mike, at least you know where your hobby room is.
Haven't been in mine for a long time.

Working a holiday weekend schedule day today.
So I start later than my usual weekday and end later too.

Have a great day everyone.

Lightly falling snow and temp in the teens. Heavy frost on stuff in the calm, temp in the teens today. Sort of a Christmas card look to it, as long as youíre inside looking out.

Daughterís family visit was nice yesterday, 17 yr old Savannah treated us with a nice batch of Chicken Fried Rice and then cleaned up the kitchen after she was done! I had the up and down Tennessee/Kansas football game on as something to have on.

My son sent me a photo he titled the ďScariest sight of my Life!!!Ē His daughter, my grand daughter Violet in her visit to see him in the car her buy their love with money set no rules other grandpa bought her for her 16th birthday. Son said it terrified him to see her drive off.....with his genes Iíd imagine it might, he sure took a few years off my life at that age....she is a decent driver, good student and has a job after school, but oh so much the modern teenager, welded to the smart phone and way too few rules from mom. She was state champion motocross racer at one point in her life, rode a pink quad...

Well,things to do today, everyone have a great day..

Good morning from sunny but still cold So. Wisconsin. Feels like a heat wave at 11f degrees but with little wind at 2mph. Karl love the story.

The day our daughter turned 16 she got her license in the morning and that night after her hockey practice she had to drive a car home. I got
the new one, Terry got mine and Kaitlin got her motherís. We had dropped Terryís old car in the parking lot at the rink before the 6Ē of snow
dropped. So Kaitiís 1st non supervised official drive was a surprise in a pretty good snowfall. She was scared at 1st but we told her drive
carefully in your car, she said oh! As a Wisconsin kid she had no issues but holly crap were her mom and I nervous and worried.

Enjoy your day
TomO

Still cold, grey and calm here in Michigan this morning.

2 steps forward and 3 back with things yesterday. That's how it goes.

Everyone have a good day.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Brrr.

It's off to Lodge for a work day, then home to finish clearing the old hobby room, soon to be Mom's room.

Heading to Grove, OK to pick up Mom tomorrow morning.

Have fun,
Mike

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

It is a cold 18 here in South Jersey. A little windy but not as bas as its been.

Not sure what's on our agenda today. But hopefully some bench time I need to stain the pilings for the dock.

Everyone have a great day!!

Jerry 18 is not cold but to Mike 90 is not hot, just kidding as it is 4f degrees here in So. Wisconsin where there is no wind it feels fine! So. Wisconsin today will be sunny and very clear a great looking day. No one to see movies with as Terry is still enjoying the warmth of Texas. She met one of Brianís neighbors and was invited for dinner. Turns out the hubby is also a model railroader. Terry said ours looks better!

Rick stay safe out in the work world. It is amazing how so many of our lifeís relate in our story telling and the way weíve been raised and stories about our kids.
