    Good morning.

    Today's Weather for:
    Sundown, LA 71446-6114 5/28/2007


    Sundown Fire Dept., Station 23

    Heat Index: 81°F
    Humidity: 76%
    Dew Point: 69°F

    So Far Today
    High: 77°F
    Low: 66°F
    Rain: 0.00"
    Rain Rate: 0.00"/h
    Gust: 8mph ESE

    Rest Of Today High: 85 Mostly cloudy with a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid 80s. Southeast winds around 10 mph.

    Tonight Low: 65 Mostly cloudy with a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Lows in the mid 60s. Light and variable winds.

    As the Memorial Day Holiday Weekend comes to a close, many Americans will begin their journey back home, either by way of interstate or airport. Regardless of the mode of transportation, weather could cause a few problems for travelers over the next couple days. Here is a daily breakdown of possible travel trouble spots:

    Today:

    A scattering of showers and thunderstorms will again develop across the Southern Plains and Midwest. As a result, airport travel in and out of Dallas, Oklahoma City, Kansas City, St. Louis and Indianapolis could be affected. Additionally, traffic along portions of I-35, I-44 and I-70 might be slowed by the hit-and-miss precipitation.

    Farther to the north, a more organized storm system will bring a greater chance of severe storms to Montana, Wyoming and the Dakotas. Travelers planning on taking either I-90 or I-94 through any of the aforementioned states should expect a few slow-downs if a storm moves across the interstate.

    Stretching from Florida to North Carolina, tranquil weather conditions will pave the way for a great travel day for airports in Miami, Atlanta, Nashville and Charlotte. Travel along the southern half of the I-95 corridor should be free-flowing as well.

    Farther north, spotty showers and blustery winds should make for tricky travel from the Mid-Atlantic into the Northeast. While the precipitation will take aim on Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia, wind gusts in excess of 30 mph will be possible in upstate New York and New England.

    The entire Western U.S. has a great day of travel shaping up as high pressure will keep the hazardous weather away. The lack of weather-related tie-ups should keep traffic on I-5 moving just fine and flights in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Phoenix on time.

    Being as it's getting near lunchtime, I'll have something appropriate.

    Morning all. Had a shower of rain lat night. Probably less than a tenth but I will take it. Got my first squash and cooked them last night. Usually have squash by first of May. Crazy growing season. Tomatoes have started growing. Got some the size of baseballs on plants started early in greenhouse. Really need a good rain event. None in sight per weatherpersons. We'll see. Off to Lowes to get a few things and then to Frankie's [across the county] to plant some tomato plants. Hope all have a great day.

    Morning everyone. Haven't been on in a while. We put in 4 feeder pigs and 3 steers so I've had to put fence in, trying to stay dry here in west Mn. I've also been assisting with SCUBA classes, diving on my own with 2 in laws, working on the veggie garden, trying to keep up with the grass, still working on the house and will be mudding most of the day, trying to keep up with the grand kids (one new one, Ted, one due in Jul and another in Aug). Oh yea and fishing!

    Hey Tanker, glad to see you back. We missed you. Wife's ~#^* Nissan has turned check engine light back on. Runs great now and can not get it to spark knock on regular [was horrible]. New code says EGR valve. Just put new one on. Getting tired of this. County called and said last water thest of pond showed a heavy metal from sewage. Now they are back on the City spilled sewage. We'll see. Having signal reception problems with two Atlas engines [identical except road number]. One been back to Atlas 3 times. Sent me a new one. I does better. seensms the do good cold but as they heat up, lose reception of commmand signals in certain spots on layout. All other Atlas, Lionels and MTH's run fine. Just these two. Will chat with Atlas guy tomorrow. Real friendly and helpful. We'll see.

    Good night.

    Morning all, thanks Chief and Tony, it's good to be back:thumb:.

    Chief we are in the market for a car right now. I was doing some research on the net and was very surprised at the reported complaints for Nissan's:eek:. I thought they were better than that. Good luck!

    Sewage in the fish pond:confused:....sounds like a crappy deal to me:eek:. Hope you get that worked out soon, I know I'd be pretty mad:curse:.

    I did get a little work done with train stuff while I wasn't visiting here, now I just need to get the time to do more. I now have way more rolling stock than engines (maybe I'll have to fix that....there are never enough:twisted:!) and the track and switches to start laying....the last few months have proved that it WILL NOT lay itself:cry:.

    We are supposed to have day without rain!!!!!!!!!!

    Have a great day everyone!

    Rick

    Afternoon. Been on phone and messing with car. This is wife's second Nissan. First one was driven to 130K and no problems [sold to to a friend and she has driven the wheels off of it and still going]. This one is a 2000 Maxima and has not given any problems until now. 109K on it. Really can't complain it is just stumping us.
    Gld to see Tanker back [and all who post here]. Ran Atlas enignes and they are doing better. Think that design has antenna location different than some of my others. Got to go. Have a good one.

    Well, I'm not a representative from Nissan, but my Dad drives a Nissan Maxima (frogot the year) and it only gives my mom problems (the car is the summer type, complete with positional sun roof:mrgreen:). The Car has experienced no mechanical problems as far as I know.
