Clouds, snow, wind and repeat, add in cold, snow, wind, repeat for the next 36-48. 20s and dropping. We won't get as cold as TomO, but we already know just how much cooler Wisconsin is.

Sticking close to home today, not sure on what I'll get at, head's a bit barometrically challenged. I have a big pile of stuff, growing, from the basement that I just had to have because it's so cool and I always wanted that I'll be putting on eBay before long. Just too much stuff for even a moderately large layout.

Everyone have a good day. I hope the Dentist doesn't mess up lunch plans, Rick. Nothing like eating in public after a trip to the dental chair.

Chillin' in the mitten, y'all have a good day.

Good morning,

It's still cold at 35F this morning, but no rain.
I'm taking the dogs for spa day (shots, nail trim and bath).

My wife comes home from trip tomorrow, so today is straighten the house day.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning from the very cool (thanks Karl) frozen tundra of So. Wisconsin where the wind chill
is now -15f degrees. Colder tomorrow! It is an indoor day except 3Ē of white fell on my driveway
overnight and someone has to remove that.

Many weeks ago I ordered stage skirting to cover the underneath of the layout, it arrived yesterday. I will
put a couple sections up just to see how it looks. Terry is totally again pissed at her family. After seeing her
brother who is in the hospital because the surgeon nicked his spinal cord in a fairly normal procedure they
process server was waiting for her the other day outside his door. Her attorney is reviewing it today and let
me say living with a bear this morning might be nicer. Enjoy your day.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Mostly sunny, with a high near 34.
Tonight we get our first taste of colder weather when the temps dip down to 10.

Happy Valentines Day.

Jerry, yes it was great getting together again.
We'll have to do it again soon.
Thanks for the pic.

Paul, what are you up to?

Still no word from Dave either.
I'll send him a message and hope he replies.

Tom, hope some calm has returned.

Philip, enjoy your days off and say hello to Bug.

Mike, did you get the house straightened up in time?

Karl, hope your sales go well.

Wasn't successful challenging my bump.
There's another mostly daytime job I can hold and I'll go to that one.

Already did a bike ride.
Grocery shopping and meal prep after I finish my breakfast.
Mom's house this afternoon.

Have a great day everyone.

Bright sun and colder than a well digger's drill bit here in the palm of the mitten this morning. Yesterday's snow storm, such as it was, failed to live up to expectations but I did manage to get out and run the machinery while the Doll went to town mid afternoon. It's 3 degrees here.

I never did get the ebay stuff listed, but did get all the bits attached and an internal noise fixed on the Baldwin switcher I've tinkered with this last week. Also applied a healthy dose of ugly to it, just need to find the coupler boxes and hang the KDs.

I looked at some things to do to scenic up the layout a bit more and endured another harang on use it or lose it from the manager...

The Doll's daughter and family are coming over later, after the kids get out of school so we'll spend the day rearranging things to make it appear we live in sterility rather than comfort. Food prep is already underway at 0830.

Fine looking group there, Rick. I was going to order the special of the day but you blocked the menu. It seems all our friends are off to warmer climate right now. Dog sled races in hte UP this weekend have some hearty souls headed up the middle finger today. There is a "famous" Drive in Restaurant at St. Ignace N of the Bridge and at the Soo East of the locks that is open this weekend, some tradition, just for the weekend. I'm not that enamoured of their grease bombs but many are. That's another draw to some. -4 at our closest town, Manistique, up there this morning. The cold weather adventurer has left me. Of course it's even colder in Wisconsin, -7 in Madison near TomO.

Well, gotta run, things to do. Eveyone have a good day.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee. That is a terrific photo. Thanks for posting.

It's a cold 32F this morning but after reading Karl's post, I am not complaining. 53F this afternoon. Perfect for putting up the remaining fence.

The house is ready for Sharon to come home, but I still have a lot of organizing to do. After 13 years here, we are rearranging all the kitchen cabinets to function better. At my age, walking seven feet for a bowl is bad when I am in a rush...lol.

Happy Valentines day folks. I know you all love trains!

Mike

Have a great day!

Afternoon everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee. I put on a fresh pot in case anyone else shows up.

It's cold day here in South Jersey sunny/30! But wind gusts of 26 mph.

Looks to be a good day to get some time in at the bench.

Everyone have a great day!!
