Our snow fizzled also.

New over night person was a no call no show tonight, if they get a new one right away, looks like another 2 weeks of long shifts often by myself.

Was doing a short one Thursday, 2 1/2 hours only, 188 sales and dropped $2485 cash in the safe.

Morning all.

We've been sunny here the past few days, and 70 degrees.   It's supposed to turn back into rain this week.

The boss is sick today, so I get the whole job to myself today.  We'll see how that goes.

Sorry to hear you're feeling poorly Del
This is what we have to look forward to...
Blizzard Warning in effect from 4:16 PM EDT on March 13, 2017 through 12:00 AM EDT on March 15, 2017.

...Blizzard Warning remains in effect from midnight tonight to midnight EDT Tuesday night...



* Hazard types...heavy snow and blizzard conditions. Some freezing drizzle late Tuesday afternoon into early Tuesday evening.

* Snow accumulations...12 to 24 inches.

* Ice accumulations...a few hundredths of an inch or less.

* Snowfall rates...2 inches to locally 3 inches per hour from very early Tuesday morning into Tuesday afternoon.

* Timing...late tonight through Tuesday evening.

* Impacts...dangerous travel due to whiteout conditions at times. Several roads may become impassable. Power outages possible.

* Winds...northeast 25 to 35 mph with gusts up to 55 mph.

* Temperatures...in the upper 20s.

* Visibilities...one quarter mile or less at times.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout conditions...making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If you must travel...have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded...stay with your vehicle.

Morning All.

The winter weather is one thing I do like about California.  Pretty much the only thing...  Yesterday was 75 degrees, no clouds at all, and a slight breeze from the south.  Not a bad day. Roll Eyes

Today, I'm taking the dog out with a friend and we're going to go for a long walk in the woods.  Hopefully the dog will be ready for a nap when we get back.  I will be.  This stupid daylight savings time deal has me all messed up. Undecided

For once the weather liars were correct. Angry Angry We ended up with 24 inches of the evil white stuff,with drifts in the 4 to 6 foot range,They called a State of emergency for the area with a travel ban for anything that wasn't 4x4.Had to babysit my Grand daughter so I took the mighty Dodge Dakota.That truck is a monster in S**w,when I came back home there was 2 feet of packed S**w at the end of my driveway and the truck went through it like it wasn't even there.Love that truck,20 years old and doesn't owe me a dime.

Morning all.

Got the dog out for about 7 miles yesterday, so she was tired for...a good half hour.  Then she wanted to play ball again.  Shocked

In the evening, a friend convinced me to go out gold panning on a cold creek.  We didn't find anything to write home about.  Mostly just a bunch of super-fine powder gold.  So we did donuts with the truck instead. Roll Eyes

This afternoon, I'm going to try and make it to the rifle range and put some lead on the 750 yard target with the .243.   Coincidentally, a friend of mine will be there doing some qualifications for the Sheriff's Dept. with his supressed, Full-auto Colt M4 SBR.  If I'm real nice, I might get a few shots through it.   Grin

The grub  is ready for everyone!

Got another clear day, with a few scattered clouds.  Temps in the mid to upper 50’s.  Looked like we were giving my SIL in Spring Hill, FL, but they are about to start shooting ahead of us.  At least we’re getting a slow snow melt, keeping the possible flooding under control.

Going to hit the RV, Vacation and Garden show at the events center here in Reno tomorrow.  Maybe get some ideans for Road Trips this summer now that both of us are retired.  Just have to schedule a time somewhere between the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta in April, the Summer MIL birthday trip in July to Milwaukee and the Christmas trip back to Milwaukee in December.

Good Morning all.

At present, it is 45 degrees with a 2 mph wind from the SW and zero clouds.  The cloud part I'll have to take everyone's word for, though.  I'm in a hole filled with fog. Huh

Went out scouting for turkey season last night, and turned up exactly nothing.  In fairness, I wasn't expecting anything there anyway.

I've got the office to myself this morning, so I have to head in half an hour early so I can get everything done before people show up.  ( Soapbox time:  Don't you hate it when people praise you for how well you are doing one day, but when you get in their way because they show up a half hour early and you're not done they get upset?   Those are the people that come really close to getting a trash can thrown at them. )
Later, I'm helping a friend sell his grandmother's furniture.  An hour away.  In the city.  I'm mostly just needed to lift the sofa, but I might get a cheeseburger out of it, so we'll see.  Roll Eyes

Green -  for St. Patties Day
Blue  -  for World Autism Awareness Day
Red - for National Wear Red Day, to raise awareness for cardiovascular disease in women.
