    GOOD EVENING
    I put a new block of ice in the caboose ice box everything was warm. Most of the local news seems to be the storms we keep getting. One missed us today but flooded streets all over detroit this afternoon. Sct. storms in the forecast through tuesday. No new train news today I think everyone is waiting for catalog items that just are not showing up. So with that I will say goodnite........S.J.

    Finally got out of town and went to Frankie's. Made up his materials list for lumber, electrical and etc. for building his work area in his garage. Left it all [except big air lines from compressor] at house he sold. Got back and fed. 30 minutes after feeding animals and fish, stormed. Had 4.5 tenths of an inch of rain. Wind blew but did not blow down the corn. Came from a direction that it was protected. Now watching TV. Good night all.

    Good morning folks

    It is 82 F on its way to 88 F. The humidity is brutal today. It was bad when I got at 5:30 AM to let the dogs out and feed the cat. I went back to my air conditioned bed for a few hours.

    The wife is a work, which meant I had to wake the bear, aka my son. He is one unpleasant person when he gets up in the morning.

    My daughter and I are about to head out to the grocery store. My son will stay home with his grandfather, which means he gets to put away the groceries when we get home.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Good morning.

    It's 74 and very cloudy, almost to the point of being foggy. The high will be around 90 and there's a good chance of thunderstorms this afternoon.

    I'll be doing more ballast work today on the two back corners. I'll also be adding some patches of weeds (no tall grass) to a couple of spurs as well as a stretch of abandoned track running beside the north engine house and foundry.
