Hey Freetown,, really? posting on Saturday Coffee at 8:41?? what's up with that? soon you're gonna tell us you are gonna retire and move to Florida !!
Seriously, don't you have a few teenagers around there to help a bit? My back and shoulders got sore just LOOKING at the photo of the stack of bags on your porch!!
Lisa: I used to fly into Maine a lot, stayed not very far from Freddy. and there is almost an hour difference in sunrise in Bangor Maine and Sunrise in Grand Rapids Michigan! Any further east from Freddy, and you go to Atlantic time zone, and any further west from Michigan, and you are in Central time zone.. You can use the weather.com and look up the actual time differences, but I remember it to be roughly an hour..
BTW: that's a pretty good buy on 9mm range ammo.. I would like to find some really inexpensive .380 ammo for my pocket pistol.. I have a lot of 9mm, and shoot it to stay proficient, but I'd like to shoot my actual carry pistol more. But the 380 ammo is pricey, like most ammo these days.. And while I do reload rifle ammo, I don't do pistol or shotgun.
I got up early this morning, yeah Freetown, earlier than you!! [probably the first and last time that'll happen] And headed down to get two barrels of FREE Mineral spirits for my car-parts washer. Two FREE 55 gallon drums.. one full, one about 3/4 full.. Whoo Hoo!!
I looked at the weather radar, read the latest forecast and decided it was good to go.. No serious snow until around 10-11am... Boy, I'd never make it as a weather forecaster.. .
I got on the freeway and 15 minutes south I ran into the snow.. 45 minutes later I pulled up to the place with the drums of solvent, they had told me about 2 hours earlier when I'd called, that there was no snow yet.. and now there is over 3" on their parking lot.
I got the two drums on a pallet, strapped it down in the back of the truck, and had to drive all the way home in 4x4, the road was either 4-6" of snow, slush or packed snow and ice.. on the way back north, I saw 5 or 6 cars off the road, two on their sides.. windshield and windows broken. Seeing that made my right foot ease off a bit!!
I didn't bother to try to clear the snow, it snowed all day. Tomorrow morning is soon enough.. total around 6-8" and the forecast is for another snowfall next Tuesday or Wednesday. Seems like every 4-5 days we are getting another half a foot of snow.. So far all snowfall records are broken for Michigan.. so this is truly a 'record-setting' winter here.
Well time for bed, or at least a midnight snack..
