    Good Morning all. It's close to 30 supposed to get near 40 today! Got my "new" engines yesterday, 2 UP Sw1500s and a GP40 BN! They run nice for being older "used" engines.

    40's going on high 60's to mid-70's. Typical desert weather. Looking for rain this weekend, but we've been looking for that now for close to three months. :rolleyes: El Nino is suppose to change that this coming year. Typically we're looking at around 10" of rain a year. The wettest year in history in the Phoenix area was around 16". That doesn't happen that often, but it's something to look forward to for 2007.:thumb:

    Home again. Did some great shooting. Cut center out of target with Ruger 10/22 and then same with .17. Next project is to install the "sniper scope" on the .17. It is shot in at 100 yards and goes out to 300 yards. Automatically conpensates for bullet drop. Still got this cold. Warm here today [70]. Got to get going. Have a good one.
