Beautiful morning on the Coastal Plain....mid 40's this morning, crisp and sunshine!
Not so for the weekend.

Slim, are you helping recount for Stein ignoring that "there was a clear and convincing evidence of fraud or other problems"?  Gee....I had a birthday in October...I want a recount...

Bright and sunny in my part of the world today.  High of 45, expected to hit 25 tonight.  It's already 30 at 10pm.

In other news, it looks like I might be trading a thunder-stick for a new one.  My little AR-15 for a Remington 700 in 264 Win Mag.   Shocked

Pretty name, Major, congratulations.  First one?  I balked like a startled mule when our first one was born, couldn't get my head around the grandpa thing; now, six more later, I'm just "Grampaw!!!!!"

Been relatively cool (read: cold)here, sometimes cloudy, sometimes sunny, windy most of the time lately.

Happy December, Y'all.

Later.

Rain expected starting tonight.  Both matches I'd considered going to have been canceled due to weather concerns.  Looks like a good weekend for an indoor project...beaded rifle sleeve...maybe just get started on it!

Afternoon all.

More sunny weather today.  It's about 55 outside right now.  But, all the animal waterers were frozen when I went out to make the morning rounds of the animals.  The birdbath is still frozen Roll Eyes

Planning a camping excursion with a friend for Monday and Tuesday.  He's got this crazy idea that it will be fun to get above the "white stuff" level, toss a tarp over a limb, and let the white stuff cover the tarp while he sleeps underneath in a sleeping bag rated to 40 degrees.  I will be making an igloo and using a sleeping bag rated below 0.

Hanging around the upper 30's,low 40's here. Cloudy all day. We got the blowers all serviced. Found that the new one takes a somewhat different size air filter from the ones we used in the old ones. Asst. manager did some checking with our supplier, found out that the exact replacement from the blower manufacturer costs $50 a piece! We use one every month. We're going to get measurements off the old one and see if we can't find an after market that's cheaper. Shocked Roll Eyes

Good Morning all.  I have the warmed beverages and donuts.  Grin

Weather here is hanging around the upper thirties this morning.  Dipped to 20 last night.  Clouds hanging around above a layer of fog.

We butchered that turkey yesterday.  She was about 40lbs before we started the processing.  All said and done, she dressed to about 35 pounds.  Each breast tipped the scale at 6 pounds Shocked

Then for the fun.  We had someone attempt to enter our house at 1am.   My sister was up watching a movie, and I was reading a book, when the dog started barking.  She's a 60 pound Labrador: not exactly a yap-yap sound.  Then the front door knob turned and the door rattled.  We keep the deadbolt thrown, but that keeps the knob from latching, so we have a sort of early warning system.  
I grabbed my Beretta and a flashlight, and my dad and I "walked the perimeter."  Didn't find any people, though there was a clear footprint in the drieway.  A deputy picked someone up for burglarizing a car about twenty minutes down the road: coincidence perhaps, but I don't think so.

'Tis 29 and sn*wing. "Light snow. Additional snow accumulation around 3 inches. Nearly steady temperature in the lower 30s. South wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow near 100 percent."

Maybe if they recount all the states, then he can win the popular vote, too.....

Cool cloudy and damp right now. Tired now, was our churches holiday dinner today, church bought 3 turkeys, 2 whole hams and 3 spiral cut ones. I brought one whole one home to cook, started it at 4AM, cooked till 9:30. Also cooked a couple quarts of green beans and a pan of candied sweet taters, had to cook that in the gas grill. Wife made a couple of Philippine dishes. Feel like a nap. Kitchen looks like a tornado hit it. Maybe the nap comes first...

Three hours for a nap-no kitchen elves came to clean up as we slept. two hours of cleaning by both of us-done. In addition to the church feast, Wife went to a party with the local Philippine crowd Saturday, then joined me at another party in the evening. Cooking was involved for al three, hence the kitchen apocalypse. Have to go to w**k tomorrow just to get some rest.

Fun and games tonight about 5 pm, lady filled her car, came back in after paying in a panic and said gas was leaking out of her car.  Looked out, yep a puddle about 3 foot around.  Got to push the big red button, called dispatch they sent a big red truck.  Co-worker got on the line with the HELP line in Kansas, then called the boss. 

I put on the nice bright green vest and grabbed the fire extinguisher and shooed people away,  FD got there, told them it was their's now, went in and helped Gail wait on people.  Filler neck was the problem, it quit, she got the ok to move it, FD left, Gail got back on the phone, with Kansas, they got us back on-line, she took kittly litter out, cleaned up the mess and between us we kept the line inside moving.

Afternoon good people of the internet.

Spent the night out in the woods. It got down to 20 degrees, with 20 mph winds and eventual sn*w, to about 1/2 inch accumulation.

I'm almost thawed out after three cups of coffee, some oatmeal and a nap.

Rained all day here, temps stayed in upper 30's early 40's. Only got a couple hours in today. For some reason I'm chilling tonight, can't seem to get warm.

Del, that problem could've led to a real hot, possibly explosive time! Glad it got resolved safely Shocked Roll Eyes
