    Morning all. Big rains last night. Thunder too. Snow in 10 days???? According to weatherperson, no. Suppose to be unseasonably warm. OK with me as Natural Gas prices went up [all heating prices except wood went up]. Off to the sandhills part of NC. Going to see buddy [in his 80's] that flew and retired Navy, flew Air America during Nam and then NC Forest Sevice until he was 72. I use to go down on the coast and fly fire patrol with him. One interesting guy. Have a good one and God bless.

    Yeah - but the day goes slower when you're not too busy :(

    I have a busy schedule today - I have to print out two reports and wait on the counter (About 6 maint men are here out of 22) -- I work in the supply warehouse.

    I have to edit a bid and do some general cleaning...

    Then I have to figure out what I'm doing for the other 7 hours :( :(

    Of course, I could probably find my way in here a couple more times LOL

    Morning all. Gone for a day and half. Got in a new Atlas NS GP30. Wow, what detail. Got it a big discount on OGR Buy and Sell board. Was new in the box [never been run]. Cloudy and chance of a shower or two and then clearing around noon. Warm. N Gauger, how far are you from Harrisburg? Will be there in Feb or March at BPS for a weekend. Think I am going to Cablea's in Hamburg around the same time. Have a great day and God bless all.

    where the temp is 39 deg and falling to 27 with rain turning to snow. Should be fun on the roads tonight.

    Well work yesterday ended at 10:00am when MIS had to take down our mainframes and do some upgrades. So only worked 1/2 day and now off until Tuesday. :cool:

    We are spending the New Years Eve with our family, nice and quite.

    Chief - how is your dog doing?

    G'morning :) Going up to 44 here with light rain (All day) :(

    I'll be going to the East Coast Large Scale Train Show on April 1 & 2 in York, Pa (Close to Harrisburgh). I'm about 2 hours away from both. I'm near Phila. What is BPS???

    Spanky, I have a prewar AF water tower like that pictured a bove. I belive it had a blub in it.

    It was in the flood and I havent seen it since.

    I had a lot of Marx and pre war metal accessories, enough for a large layout.

    where the temp is 37 and headed to 42 with rain, and maybe T-Storms today!

    Several of us in the OTTS club are going to Glen's Trains today. Glen's Trains is one of the MTH MegaStores in Ohio.

    Gil - This layout isn't mine. It is Charlie's layout. He is one of the OTTS member where we had the last meeting. The engine was mine.

    G'Morning Spanky

    We had rain & a bit of T-storms yesterday - one just missed us. We heard the thunder but couldn't see the lightning (too bright a day, I guess). We're dry today, going up to 44, then rain coming back tonight (from ohio) :( I'll give you a dollar to keep all this lousey weather in Ohio :D :D :D

    I keep asking Catt (Michigan) to keep it up there & don't send it East :) but he never listens :D :D :D

    Ah well, try not to spend too much money, but have fun at the store...
