Found a little more space.
Slowly but surely things are getting done.
I sure am looking forward to the post that I say that about the BIKE!

Got up to a winter wonderland this morning.
Looks like no work today.
Boo-no money today
Hooray- a whole day to get in the shop.
If the weather has you in its grips, stay safe and stay warm.

We're getting your storm up here tonight and tomorrow. Supposed to get around 8" of snow, school will most likely be called off tomorrow. (I'm a teacher)

We only got about 3" but that was on top of freezing rain last night.
Plenty to shut down things down here.
If it gets you, stay safe and enjoy your day off.

Thanks, they just called, school is closed. That works out nicely, now I can take my 80 year old father to his oncology appointment this morning.

It wasn't good news, but we need to keep our chin up, right? At least that's what everybody always says.

Thanks for asking Duke.

Man I have a light that looks just like that. I found it in the trunk of an old Buick.

Is that a 4" bulb?
