Getting freezing rain and rain now. Roads are getting pretty slick, a number of accidents already. I can't figure out why people won't slow down a bit in this weather. Be safe.

Ceccil: go outside and rope that storm; tie it to a trucker's bumper headed for Florida.....

I absolutely hate burning coal! Every day the same damned thing...constant temperature, toasty warm house, happy upside down animals.....sound asleep...(near a pipe chase). No drama! Why would anyone burn coal? You save tons of money and keep American Companies and their employees, friends and families fed and clothed. This is practically Un-American in our new "Politically Correct Society"!!
We got a foot here last week, high winds and very cold days and colder nights. I was out a 5:45 today and it was -2.....I knew I shouldn't have worn shorts and flip-flops....
It's up to 24 already...so the shorts were a good choice.... :D :? :eek2: :fear: The damned boilers were doing the same thing they have done every day for the last 37 years...70 in the shop, should have worn....neck tie!

Did you guys see the fund raising runs going on in "Speedo's"? Talk about 'shrinkage' and 'turgid nips'; WOW!
('Turgid Nips' is a New England Specialty Drink, only available in cold weather climates, and Smitty says it really gives you a WARM feeling as it goes down.... I'm gonna get an 'Ankle Bracelet' for his illusive butt! We'll find out his secrets! :devil: :mad3: :baby: :mad2: :surrender:
