    Back home from doing Overton's Marine training. Now more work on layout. Sunny and warming real fast. Yanks are sending us some cold air again Sunday and overriding moisture fro Texas. We'll survive. Have a good one.

    Good morning,

    Slept in a little later this morning. Got greenhouse ready for starting some seeds soon. Maybe I'll find some time for the layout today.

    Weather here is about the same, cold & clear. Forgot to check the temps this morning.

    Set up my two Atlas Jersey Central GP-9s in a lashup and have been running them quite a bit. Really nice running locos. Can pull a ton, have 12 cars + caboose on right now, they will pull a lot more than that

    Take care,

    Evening,

    Been gone a WAY long time. Got back and then the PC blew its Power Supply and took the Hard Drive with it.
    Finally, getting back to normal.
    Sitting here with a fever, cough, and a sneeze that'll send a sailboat across a lake.
    I won't make ya'll jealous with the weather report here. I'll just say Miami is 40mi south and across the state.
    Good to see the Morning "How ya doing..." is back. Missed it.
