    Good morning folks

    It was a sticky 74 F on the roads this morning. High today will be 92 F with a slight chance of thunderstorms. We had one heck of a downpour yesterday. It rained hard for a little over an hour at work in King of Prussia. At one point we could barely see our parking garage which is about 100 yards from the building from the windows. At home about 19 miles away we got some rain and a short 10 minute downpour.

    We had the idiots down the street setting off fireworks in the middle of the street last night. Since our street is the main cut through for the neighborhood it is busy so that did not bode well for traffic. We had traffic backed up and cars trying to avoid the fireworks and the parked cars. It did not take long before the cops showed up and stopped them. You would think these morons would learn. We go through this every 4th of July and New Years and it always ends with the cops showing up.

    I worked some on the Mather stock car kit last night.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JEFFREY!

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    GOOD MORNING
    Thanks Doug, but just rain without the lightning would do just fine. BUT of course thats not what the weather people are saying. 91 W/storms later..
    Me thinks I may spend a little time on my recent train purchase, and just go from there. Have a good one all....S.J.

    Jeffrey, A belated bday1 and many more.

    We got 2 1/2 inches of rain yesterday and last night. Very good as it was slow and steady, not much run off. Corn and soy beans will really suck it up.

    We got our plumbing problem fixed and a few hours tomorrow and the painter will be done, then we can move the furniture back into the home office. I'm working now at putting my work/computer table & workbench back together in the basement. At least everything is getting a good cleaning. :mrgreen:

    It's funny that you should mention that, when Buckeye and Laz were here we noticed a little puddle on the floor of the unfinished basement but could not figure where it came from, I figured I had just spilled something. Little did I know that it was the first sign of my major leak. wall1

    bday1balloon6bounce7 MARCIE. Lets see. You were 21 and now that makes you 22.

    I forgot to log on to any forums this AM. Got up and started to eat breakfast and then stayed on phone about yesterday's win at County Commissioners. TWC guy came and then I had to go to Main Street Park [across the street from house]. Walked the trail with contractor and others to insure they knew where to build the trail [8 foot wide and paved]. It goes around the outer edge of the property. 1 1/2 miles long. Collected a lot of ticks. Got some rain this evening. Later
