the good news is so welcome  :)  Del.   

We could see 20-25 mph winds with gusts up to 40 mph along the coast and inland to about Interstate 95 and 15-20 mph winds with 30 mph gusts across the rest of my area in Central Florida.

Cool, I hate it when it's really windy.  It was more than that this morning but has died down. 

I remember Slims first trip up this way looking into the wind on that hill in Kansas and him asking if the wind always blows line that and telling him that sometimes it gets really bad something he learned out to Sargent. ;D

It's still raining, has all day radar show it won't let up until morning.
 www.weather.gov/iln/rainfall-monitoring says 2.93 inches in my zip code,
 But just east of me over 5.38 inches
Winds down to around 10mph....
I understand drenching rain, gusty winds caused damage, flooding throughout South Florida.
Like here it's been raining since early Tuesday morning, completely overcast too.


: update :  5:30 AM, it's now @ 4 inches and still raining hard... local wildlife is pairing 2X2.  :-X

I had planned on going this year and with could of, because I know they'd watch me and help.  Problem is I didn't have a babysitter.  ;D

Well Del, thanks for the good news!
Been busy round here. Temps will be in the 60s this weekend, cooler next week. The Missus is getting ready for Thanksgiving, family coming here, so the place will be full with plenty of laughter.

Slept 6 hours straight and 10 total, feeling pretty good.  Rita is getting up a lot less in the night.

Good day at Church today, our guest Preacher is an old friend, so getting to visit with him and his wife was a real treat. My boss at the LGS has been out with Covid, so we told him not to come back until he was completely well, even though we are short handed.

Morning all.  I guess I’ll stir the coals and get the coffee going.

Currently 33 with heavy fog, expected to be 55 and sunny through the day.

Had a long day yesterday doing horse things. While Mrs TK took care of the equestrians, I ran some errands (get gas, Tractor supply for grain and some other trinkets, etc), then came back and got roped into helping train a horse. Lucky me  ::)

My final stop of the day was at Sportsman’s Warehouse for primers, as my box of large pistol primers has gone MIA. The local store keeps primers behind the gun counter, so I waited 15 minutes in line, only for the fellow in front of me to buy the final two boxes of what I needed. The only primers in stock when I got to the counter were Remington 7 1/2 small rifle (I have about 15k of those) and Federal 209s (I have several thousand of those as well). So I ended up leaving the store with a box of Gallant Bullets Co 250gr Kieth style SWC .429 bullets and a Twix.

Coffee and tea are hot.

Going out in a bit to chase whitetails.

'Tis 36 and drizzle. "Cloudy with a chance of snow showers and rain showers in the morning  then partly sunny in the afternoon. Highs in the lower 40s. North wind 10 to 15 mph. Chance of precipitation 50 percent."

Slim, good luck to you!
42 here, still raining, supposed to dry out and get to 55 today. Been busy at work, still short-handed. Our Church's Thanksgiving Service is tonight, one of my favorite services of the year.
May God richly bless each of you, my friends!

Last Saturday we flew to Minnesota for Thanksgiving with my daughter. Tuesday morning, I tested positive for Covid. Nobody on the plane wore a mask except my wife for medical reasons. For what it's worth, getting Covid may have been my fault. I take several eyedrops every day for Glaucoma. Sometimes my eyes itch and I rub them. I've been negligent in washing my hands.

I had no fever, just a persistent cough. This morning I tested negative.

Glad you are on the mend Johnny.    We flew to Europe ~October 22, and back on November 4.  Went to Greece to check some bucket lists for me.   (other than the old west, one of my history interests is Bronze Age).   We went to Santorini to see Akrotiri and Crete to see the Palace of Knossos.   Excellent trip (may be background of a documentarty by Dan Snow being filmed at Knossos at the same time).  Anyway, we had gotten our boosters and flu shots a few weeks before leaving, so I was not too worried, but we carried masks.   Did not see any masks until we got to Santorini and the majority of the Asian tourists wore them.   There were covid testing sites in the Athens airport, but no where else.    thankfully we did not catch any funk while traveling.   

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.  We did our family one on Sunday, so will be eating a turkey sandwich while watching football on Thursday.
