Good morning Kitty.  Yeah, back in the cold front again.  Have to venture out to take the

Baja in for it's recall.  At least I didn't have to buy a used truck at the prices they're getting

right now.  Like the Baja too.

Took care of garbage and talked to one daughter for a while.  Shoveled the few inches of

snow from our driveway before I left.  Then helped a grandson shovel their driveway.  Our

daughter made two pizzas for them just as I was leaving.  She had her jewelry polisher running

in the bathroom because it's so noisy.

Had to work on the little heater I have for my little area of the basement so didn't get any work

done on the amplifier, needed a break anyway.  Borrowed a different one from my daughter

while I fix this one. 

Thought you would like the Florida pictures.  My sister is down there now until April, I think.

This is her 6th day there. 

Having good days here, feel so rich with my life.  Glad you are having good days.


Baja before all the snow.

Good morning Kitty.  We do have a warming trend here next week, most likely at your

place also.  30s, 40s, and maybe 50s, rain comes with the 50s though.  Possible flooding

with the foot of snow we have on the ground. 

My non smoking years and the Subaru both coming up on 15 years.  Cocoa born then is

no longer here though. 

Worked on my little area heater for my space in the basement yesterday.  Got it working

but not as good as it should.  Little squirrel cage fan in it gave out.  I put a little cooling

fan in it.  Also sent pictures of the sub assemblies of the amplifier to a guy in California

that's done what I'm trying to do.  Says he can help me.

It's Friday and we all have the weekend off so things are looking up.  smiley

Enjoy the day, we will.

Hi all sitting here waiting for the big storm probably after we go to bed..../everyone stay safe.....


From: Cocoa60


Good morning Kitty.  We've been watching the storm.  Supposed to miss us this time, just a

little lake effect snow after the front moves out.  After the 48 inches last December, we don't

need another.  That storm cost us some money for ruined stuff and repairs.  Think 1993 was

the one previous to that one in our area.

We went out and got birdseed, paint for the kitchen and dinning room, and an electrical plug

yesterday.  Ate at our favorite diner yesterday.  Wind chill warnings so probably will stay home

today.  Just no need to go out in the cold, supposed to warm up next week. 

Managed to get in a good conversation with my brother on the radio last night for over an hour.

I'm sure Brian can get you dug out of the storm, much easier than building a rock wall. 

Enjoy the day.

it is snowing like crazy....so no shoveling for awhile...and we are lucky we don't have to go out.....have a good day....

Good morning Kitty.  I saw on radar the storm was there 5 AM yesterday morning and

just receding in the evening.  We only got cold and wind made it very low wind chill.

Another cold day here today but less wind, I think.

Did almost nothing here yesterday here.  Cold outdoors and in the basement.  Gave

my wife her Valentines card and a gift a little early. 

Getting my prescriptions renewed and refilled so the 90 day, 30 day, and 50 day can

all be picked up in one trip.  I have fewer than I used to have but still 4, I think.

Hope you can dig out of the snow ok, when we got 48 inches took me a couple days

even with a backhoe.  Backhoe can't be used around vehicles and entrance ways.

Have a good day.

we are in the NW hills...the county that got the least amount of snow...only about 4 inches but it is only 2 degrees here....the sun is shining tho so it looks nice and I can stay in ....

Good morning Kitty.  Still cold here this morn.  Some warmer this week but lower forecast

now than was before.  Shouldn't be to much work for 4" removal.  We still have rain forecast

for Thursday so I will probably go south to the farm Wednesday.  Last time I had to drive back

on snow covered roads.

I installed that new electrical outlet in the bathroom yesterday.  Put in a GFCI, it's on the opposite

wall from sink and shower but probably the law for all outlets in the bathroom.  Have been using

an extension cord on that side of the bathroom for rechargeable toothbrush and radio for ten years.

Had the cord going around the corner to the bedroom.  I still have to do the dry wall patching today.

I still have to use an extension cord but just one wire going behind the clothes hamper instead of three

and doesn't go out into the hallway to the bedroom.

That's about all I did yesterday, good project for a cold day.  Still waiting for the California guy for help

on my amplifier.  He did get back to me, he's having trouble at work and needs to wait until he can devote

a little time to help me.  I can understand his problem, I spent good part of my career at IBM and New York

Electric and Gas.  People were really bad when they went to work.  My wife had lots of trouble with the small

company she worked for assisted living for older people also.  No use getting into all of the stuff.  It's over and

we both have the week off.

We had lots of sunshine yesterday also.  I see one of the solar light strings is still on this morning.  Today is only

in the upper 20s but it's a start in the warmer direction.

Have good day all.
