    Good afternoon,

    Cold and windy again today with snow flurries. Temp was 18 this morning, haven't looked since.

    Spent the morning wiring a new coffee maker at the church. Supposed to start tomorrow at the TCA Musuem doing volunteer work two days a week. Hope I can handle it, haven't worked a full day in years. :) Told them I'd give it a try.

    Got my latest ebay purchase via UPS. Two Tropicana reefers, a REA reefer & a CP stock car. All are scale size Lionel.

    Gil, wish you well with your health problems.

    Tom, Thanks for the museum info. Should really be nice when everything is up and running.

    Chief, Where are you staying in Harrisburg.

    Tony, You are moving right along with your project.

    Tony I've been saying that for yearsannounce1 , VA only interviews patients after they have been given meds so they always look good cause the patient can only respond with "yea man" "cool man"!

    Are they treating you ok??? Yea man!:rolleyes:

    How is the Va hospital??? Cool man!:rolleyes:

    Evening all,

    Cold and windy here all day today, outside as little as possible. Put in first day at TCA Museum entering catalog data in spread sheet. Just about have the USA Trains catalogs for past two years memorized. Never realized that they make such a wide variety of items in 1/29 scale. Most of their locos are available in 2 or 3 road names. Nice stuff.

    No train activity here today.

    Keep warm,

    Going to be running again today with grandkids to preschool, then to fargo to pick up one of my sons for the weekend (supprise bday party for my wife, 3 sons and 1 daughter are going to be able to make it!). Have to go to Home Depot for more plywood and sheet rock. Only need to get 20 sheets of sheet rock amd 5 of the plywood.....but I should be done with the worst of the tear out (old plaster&lath and blown in insulation) sometime late next week.

    Morning everybody! Another frigid morning in MI. Received my ebay purchase yesterday and I made it out to Rider's H.S. in Flint. My 3yr old wanted to buy everything she laid her eyes on, funny thing is, I think I did too! I found out that they have a 90 day layaway plan though! I told the wife that and I got the usual eye roll :) Have a good day...

    Twenty years ago I use to like the snow days, but now we have to makeup days missed. The 2 hour delays are a much better option, you at least get to sleep in. This year we have only had one 2hr delay. :cry: I can only look foward to Feb. 19 when have no school because it is used as a makeup for a snow day.

    ironically i'm out of school because we just finished our finals, and for whatever reason, the teachers need a day or 2 to get ready for next semester. I'm not complaining, lol.

    I think my favorite time i had off was when it was an absolutely beautiful friday, and they cancelled school in anticipation of horrifying hurricane weather. it was great, because people where confused, and kids were just standing around at other bus stops. ironically, the bad weather didn't come until monday, when we did go to school with 3 tornadoes in the state and horrifying storms. that fact that my bus stop was under the tallest trees on the street did not make my day.... lol. we got stuck in school until 5 PM that day.

    Chief, we dress really, really warm to work out in this stuff! We have to be really careful, at 0 frost bite is a real issue and at -30 breathing too fast or deeply can damage lungs. You see guys up here removing snow wearing full face helmets to protect themselves from the cold. I have a cab on my old Wheel Horse garden tractor that I blow snow with. I'm not alone with that. A few years back an elderly couple left home to go visit friends. Their car died about 300 yards from their house, she made it half way and he got within a couple of feet of the door. This stuff up here can kill you, no joking around!


    Playing with the cold is as dangerous as playing on train tracks!
