    Saturday

    Sunshine all day long and the mercury briefly hit 57F. Only a little snow remains around the foundation on the north side of the house. Death to snow!

    Saturday

    Morning y'all, clear skies and a frosty 20F. Expecting sunshine and a high of 53F. That should melt most of what little snow remains on roofs and in shaded areas.

    Friday

    Morning y'all, it finally snowed! Partly cloudy skies, 26F, and about 2 inches of snow on the ground, but not on the street. I am on what was the northern edge of a southern snow storm. Schools in my county are opening 2 hours late, schools just a few miles to the south and east are closed and government offices and courts are opening late. Expecting full sunshine by the afternoon and a high of 40F, so most of the snow should melt before refreezing tonight as temperatures plummet to 20F by tomorrow morning.

    Thursday

    Morning y'all, overcast skies, 33F and 76% humidity. Expecting partly to mostly cloudy skies this morning with total overcast and the temperature peaking at 41F by noon. Temperatures will slowly fall this afternoon and light rain showers by 2 PM. Rain is expected to mix with, then change to light snow late in the afternoon and end early tonight. Total accumulation of snow not expected to exceed 1 inch. This might be our big snow for this winter.

  12. The NTSB has yet to complete its investigation into the October 2, 2019, fatal crash of the Collings Foundation's B-17G, "Nine-O-Nine", but there is already repercussions rippling through the warbird/vintage aircraft community. A story in Military.com details the Collings Foundation's voluntary cessation of passenger flight ops after the crash. U.S. Senator Da Nang Dick ( I served in the Vietnam era ) Blumenthal is questioning the maintenance of this and all vintage aircraft and the possibility of additional regulations. There may not be a Wings of Freedom Tour for 2020. https://www.military.com/daily-news/2020/01/26/historical-plane-flights-grounded-while-investigation-continues-deadly-b-17-bomber-crash.html From War History Online, The National Warplane Museum is cancelling their lease of the B-17G that was cosmetically converted to look like a B-17F for the movie Memphis Belle. They can no longer afford the maintenance, fuel, and now the soaring cost of insurance. https://www.warhistoryonline.com/news/memphis-belle-2.html None of this is good news for flyable vintage aircraft.
  13. I was thinking that the more choices the better.

    Saturday

    Morning y'all, clear skies, 22F, and 60% humidity. Yep, it's a cold and dry February day. Expecting sunshine this morning and a partly cloudy afternoon, the mercury is supposed to peak out at a very below average of only 43F.
  17. On this Valentine's Day, a public service announcement from 1968. Ok, a little late, but better late than never, right?

    Friday

    Morning y'all and happy Hallmark Holiday Saint Valentine's Day. Mostly cloudy skies, 36F, and 83% humidity. Expecting to see a partly cloudy day and a high of 43F. It's the weekend and the temperatures are going to be very February, thus eliminating outdoor pleasantness.
  19. There are far worse beers than Schlitz. Schlitz Brewing went out of business near the end of the 20th century, but the beer was brought back by Pabst.

    Or freaking genius. He's snockered on a Tuesday morning, the rest of us aren't. And, for the first time in forever, he wrote something that is in understandable English!
