    Default Spring seems so far away!!

    This is what I woke up to this morning. Knock, knock, they were still buzzing. Thought I would put a picture of the car in there too so that you all may share in my misery.....off to shovel

    A few weeks ago we had a cold week (lows in 20'sF, hardly going above 40F daytime). But now we're back to normal Winter temps: 80F day and 50F nighttime lows. I can certainly wait much longer for our Spring weather - that's when it starts getting near 100F in the daytime.

    Long term weather from TWC said Feb will be unusually cool but March will probably be the warmest in many years, as well as April. They said 5 more weeks of spring!

    I'm headed out to the shop today, but it may be a short day. My shop is 26 by 40 and not insulated. The temperature is 9 below right now and I don't know if my wood stove will be up to the task! It is pretty hard to get all that metal warmed up!

    True, but I'm glad you didn't see me last year. I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Of course, I went from 6 to 30 last year. -james

    I am taking advantage of thirties to salvage wax out of frames I am decommissioning. What a mess and what a challenge not to track the wax into the house! I just love finding those little gobs of wax stuck to the hardwood and the trouble cleaning them off! I am not building yet because I have five hobbies too many in my garage and I can't afford to lose the room!

    Vance, Take some ice in a plastic bag (to keep the wood dry) and set it on top of the wax gobs. Use a plastic credit card to pop the cold wax off the floor or counter, etc.

    THANKYOU! What a kind offer but they are all full and too expensive to ship. They are not in the garage anyway, too cold. It is also good to har that I am not the only one that tracks propolis and wax into the wifes house.
