    Good Morning All from NE Ohio

    where the temp is 27 deg and heading to 31 with snow falling. So far about 2" of fresh snow for a white Christmas. :thumb:

    We had a great time at the trains show yesterday. 4 of us from the OTTS group went together and meet another member of the group there. Then afterwards we went to lunch together. Afterwards we stop at a flee Market to see if they had any trains. Couple of months ago they did and yesterday none, just some flees for the dog. :D

    Pick up 2 more diecast steam wagons and a new caboose with smoke and flashing tail light. Now I have to wait until Christmas to play with them. :rolleyes:

    Come on down Guys, It's in the 60s here today.
    I know what that kind of weather is like, That's why we moved.
    I used to work for the Pa. Turnpike AAA emergency road service for about 5 years. Froze my butt off fixing cars along the roadside and cleaning up accidents.

    Good morning Guys,
    I'm not planning on a white Christmas.
    If I miss the snow I just look at a photo like this one of when we had snow here.
    That's enough to run a chill up my spine and the desire is gone. :rolleyes:

    Tractor tires done. Lug nuts came off real easy. Still glad I had air to the tractor/boat shed. Impact wrench is faster. Went to service center and they put in new tubes, anti-freeze and water. Some air for pressure and home I came. Went right back on. Now for a mile walk to the pond and a mile back. Wish it would warm up.
