I remember after moving to Tucson back in '82....Around Christmas the temps went below 70 and everybody was digging out down vests and jacketsand turning on the wall heaters. There I was going whaaaaaa? But ya know what?,I realized I was a little chilly too!
Slowed down the wolf spiders real nice too......

Yea, the humidity here stinks, 32* right now, 42% humidity. Dampness is nasty.

Should be getting some ICE starting here soon, looks like the snow is North of us.

Good Evening, Well we started the day out at -11* and it is now 20* and rising!! Supposed to get a few inches of snow then ice and finish with 50* and rain Whata winter . Popeye, I've kinda lived all over too, remember living in Sacramento, Cali. and never thought it got cold but the "locals" were running around in coats. Lloyd, humidity is the one thing I dislike, my body doesn't care too much for it ether . Have a great night all.

Good Morning, What difference a day makes! this morning the temp here is 42* on the mountain, the valleys are in the 20's and freezing rain, here it's just rain after a couple inches of snow. Lots of car accidents and pedestrian fall down calls on the scanner. Won't get much done outside but will get back into the shop.

Hard to figure out how to dress when you get up in the morning. Long johns or no? Parka or rain coat? Snow shoes or rubber boots?

Going to be 91 today. Good day to sit under the trees with a Popsicle. Why aren't you here Popeye?

We have no complaints down here, other than a pretty nasty thunderstorm last night. Daughter sent me pics of the snow on her deck near Akron, don't need any of that.

Frank, glad the major storms down there missed you. just had some heavy rain here I guess around 1.5", temps got up to 48*. The cold and wet combo got into the electric wire going to the shop and shorted out so I need to replace the electric from the house to the shop tomorrow. Have a Great Night All.

Terry, looks like the weather in Illinois! If you don't like it wait a day, it will change?!!
Is your elect. line overhead or underground? Hope it won't be too much trouble to change!! When I ran the elect. to my shop at the house in the country underground, I ran two lines, and a propane line too! The two lines was a overkill, as I never used the second one, but it was there if I needed it! I had bought a spool of underground elect. line at a sale for little of nothing, so why I ran two!
Everyone take care in the cold, nasty weather! I won't say what it is like here? Rail!

Hi All!

Frank, my buddy John got in those storms, damaged his slide topper. He does not deal with heights,,,,, even a step ladder. So he is waiting for the local mobile repair guy to show up and see what he can do. Mean while he can't go anywhere. Glad you got thru them okay.

Terry, Ugh on the power line failure. I'm sure I need not say this, but be careful.

Have a great day all!

L.

Good Morning, Rail, the weather here this year is just nuts, right now I don't have any snow on the ground and usually have feet of snow. The electric line is buried, I built the shop 30 years ago and used direct bury cable. not sure what really happened other than there is nothing wrong on what I can see and with everything unhooked there is a draw, (short) on the lines. So there has to be something underground. Will go this AM and get a new line and just leave it above ground until spring. Lloyd, good that's all that got damaged, saw on the news alot of damage down there. Yep, I have alot of respect for electricity, everything shut off and locked down even through I'm the only one here.

Thanks Lloyd, I thought that I was going to loose my awning, but it survived. Wind was from the passenger side , so the bedroom slide didn't leak , I had the towels down anyways, so I was covered, waiting on the seals to get here so we can replace them.
Terry,
Sorry that you have to go through that, when I put the cable in for my shop, I put it in through 2" conduit so if I had to change it, I wouldn't have to dig it all up.
Frank

Frank, just got back from Home depot, got my wire, I have some plastic water pipe that was left over from some other project and was thinking of sliding it in that just for that reason, plus to protect it some.

When we went to underground we did not put in conduit. The main line to the shop is 450' long and is 1 1/2" in diameter. Took 4 of us to pull the line out.

The sub line to the house is 1" and while only 150' is also pretty heavy.
