Looks cool Terry. Once the sun comes up and starts shining it will be a lot more cheery. We are past the winter equinox so the days are getting longer. Will not be long before the temps will be going up as well.

Frank, we like to spread it around, makes us feel better . Gordon, I always like to get January out of the way, statistically its the coldest month for us, once February gets here the average temps go up , not to say the averages are "warm". I have noticed the days are getting longer .

If we kept all the cold up here it would be very selfish.
How about sending more warm in our direction?

I just got off my roof .....again !
Last night's 5" had to go away ......I have one of those tiny kiddie shovels so I don't break anything up there (plastic gets kinda brittle) ,,,,,so I broke the shovel .
"Well , I shovel it left and shovel it right.
Look out ya dummy , I'm slidin' through that light!
And I hatesk to shovel snow !"
(the chorus of one of the songs on my popeye album)

Popeye, What I use to get snow off sensitive areas is, (I think) they call it a snow broom, we used them when I had the shop to get snow off customers cars before bringing them inside. I got mine where we used to get our parts from, AutoZone, CARQUEST ect. The handles always sucked so we put broom handles on. Here's a pic. This one is like 6 years old so they last a long time.

Almost forgot here's a link to the latest video, it's a little old we have done more since I shot this but it's just too cold here now to handle a camera and stuff without gloves ect. At least I haven't learned yet.

Yeah Terry , I've seen those , never thought about getting one . They seemed too big to fit into all the tight spots but maybe I could use my broken kiddie shovel for them !

Good Morning, Popeye, whatever works, I used it on mine because of the rubber roof and it wouldn't dig in and possibly rip it. 11* this am, they say sunny today and less wind so maybe I can do something.

Hi Terry -
Watched the video. Nice work.

Just had an epiphany. What would happen if you cut the sheets 1/2" short and left a 1/4" on each side to fill with the expanding foam? It would be overkill but with the liquid nails and the foamed edges it would be almost impossible for anything to move.

Gordon, That's what I do , only I do it on one end, I leave it about 3/8 to a 1/2 gap on the end and put the foam in once it expands it is he_ _ getting them out, I've had to and you end up breaking the panel. I keep saying great minds think alike . The Plasma cutter is supposed to be here today . then I'll start on the rear deck again.

Ahhh, the plasma will speed it up Terry! I don't use mine enough to get real good at it, but on a few big projects i've done I get the hang of the speed and heat setting and end up with really clean cuts.

Now if we couls just get you a little better weather.....

I think when your done with that floor you'll be able to load a JD350 loader in there without doing any damage!!! Great Job Terry! So i'll assume you are satisfied with that Simadre Plasma? I have been looking for one but not spending big bucks on it. Bobby
