Is there anyone in the Smith Center area? If so, could you tell me how the weather is supposed to be for Thursday and Friday?

Lee,

I look forward to meeting you Monday. That is, if we don't freeze to death Sunday night. Revised low temperature for Sunday night is 8.

Bob,
Looks like we're going to test the "0" guarantee. Mine has been really warm in the low 20's, we'll see how this makes it. I hope I'm still bragging on it!! Look forward to seeing you there.
Lee

We were there today. We took the factory tour and checked out our 35RSE being built. It is kinda ugly now, no roof, no windows, no doors, no front cap, and no rear cap. I think we will keep it anyhow!
Jack had 2 units in the shop and didn't look like they would be finished today. The weather is not good. The main roads were clear, but all side streets in Smith Center were icy. It was snowing and 31 degrees when we left at 2PM.
We are in Liberal, Kansas now and it is drizzling and 34 degrees. The weather up north is not supposed to get much better. You guys be very careful on your way.
