Mornin' all...

You boys in the east are stealing all of my snow.

Only a remnant of snow from two weeks ago.

+19 now and going up to 32-33.

I am always amazed how our valley here is so affected by the coastal air coming across the Columbia Gorge.  Fifty miles in any direction: north, east or south, the weather is much colder and a LOT more snow.

Gonna get some time at the bench today.

see ya

Afternoon all,

Dang, I had to use my AAA membership card to scrape the frost off my windshield this morning.   :o  I really appreciated the seat warmers.   8)

That Big Boy is big.  The Judge and I look small standing next to it.

I had the day off yesterday and got a little workbench time in after a morning Doctors appointment.  Now I won't see the workbench until the weekend.



Have a great one!

Jan: Looking at the photo of the well done Western Europe scene, is that a Kadee coupler on the "goods wagon" car?

I think it is , not sure which scale this layout was in , probably On3o. Strange that they would use Kadee couplers though , in a larger scale there are far more prototypical couplers for that era.
I love photo's, don't we all.

I would be happy to share our snow with you - we are getting all we need this year. The Great Lakes are working their magic as the wind blows over the lake they make great snow making machines. As soon as they freeze over, it stops working. With these below zero temperatures we should be getting close to that happening.
