Good morning.  31 here at almost 10 AM.  Woke at almost 3 so didn't take the time to write in this

forum.  Drank coffee and looked at stuff, then got ready to head down the road.  After that and

breakfast went down to get groceries before all the people trying to beat the storm.  Wegmans

will be crowded all day and more difficult to get stuff they're having trouble with lately, like lettuce.

We have a little sun this morn but around 2 PM supposed to start snowing and last until tomorrow

morning.  3-4 inches with higher amounts some places. 

We just took care of little stuff yesterday.  Today I have to look at the heated mats on the deck.  Tripping

the GFCI when they're turned on now.  Probably some water got into one of the connections.  Has a bunch

with the little control unit, large mat, and 4 little step mats. 

We might get another snow storm Wednesday but we're all set.  Can skip garbage Tuesday if we have to but

don't expect driving being a problem that day. 

Wife getting ready for a niece baby shower later this month. 

Enjoy the day and snow all.

Good morning from snowy Avon Lake ~

This is the second time I have posted and hit Post and my message doesn’t appear?  Operator error, no doubt.

So, we have decided due to the predicted snowfall and spouse having a low blood pressure problem, we will stay here and not make the five hour trek.  I am just as happy that we are not doing such a drive during the winter.  Worse case scenario would be to be stuck over there and Finn home alone……

We will spend a relaxing day with the electric fireplace on, relaxing, watching a football game and dining on an Atlantic Salmon Roast with goat cheese florentine, a client’s gift to husband.  

Enjoy the day.  Stay safe everyone.  Susan

Hi Susan,

I did not live in Pittsburgh. I worked in NY for Mellon and traveled there 4-5 times a year. I remember the Browns relocating to Baltimore, so I want the Ravens to forever lose. The Rooney family of Pittsburgh was very close to the Giants Mara family, so maybe that carried over to the fans. I guess fans primarily dislike their division rivals. For us, that is the Cowboys & Eagles. Not so much Washington.  A horrid game last night. 

A good decision not to travel tonight. Enjoy the evening. It will only be rain here, but lots of it. 

Be safe everyone,

Good morning Susan, Paul, and all.  Have quite a bit of snow here, 3-4 inches, and a little more to come by 10 AM.

We finished all we have to do so no car tracks over the fresh snow before snow removal.  Still snowing now.  I woke

early again.  I dose some during the day if I'm drowsy in these retirement years.  As long as I'm not driving.  smiley  Don't

have to tell you it could get even worse than Finn being stuck without you for a day.  It doesn't say you are posting on

your phone Susan, don't know how you're losing post after post.  Usually if it's me, it's because I mistakenly left the page

without hitting post. 

I found the reason for our heated deck mats not working and fixed it.  A wire cap heated up and melted in a box outdoors.

So will have to plug the mats directly into an outlet for now instead of having control through the switch on the wall.  I'm

usually the one to run it anyway, will think about a better way to run the mats.  At least the problem is solved. 

Need to have a look at how to wire up my newest ham radio to the transistorized amplifier.  Right now it uses an older tube amp.

I should at least see if I need to order connectors to do a good and neat job of it. 

Salmon is the best meat for Diabetics.  I have it once in a while.

Enjoy the day all.  I will probably do snow removal for the most part.  Our driveway is about 150 feet long and two car widths for

half of it.

Good morning to all ~
A picture perfect wet snow clinging to all of the trees and branches ~ perhaps three inches.

A good day to do grocery shopping!

Susan, Ernie, the pictures are pretty. Just light rain here yesterday. NYC closing in on its record for consecutive number of days without snow.

Enjoy the day everyone.

Good morning Susan, Paul, and all.  No not snowing record here.  Inches on the ground and more inches tomorrow.

Today all is clear so can take care of garbage. 

Worked at snow removal yesterday, used a shovel, wasn't really enough for the loader.  Was able to get the dogs out

yesterday and this morn. 

Worked on a couple radios yesterday afternoon I got from a pile of junk.  Neither works well and probably not worth


Glad we aren't smoking, enjoy the day everyone.

Good morning Kitty.  Glad life is treating you all well this day.  Doing pretty well here, no Christmas

cards these days though.  You must have your white Christmas now.
