Off to get granddaughters later today, they will be here for the weekend. they will keep the place hoping for sure at 2.5 and 4.5 and into everything........
Stay warm and have a safe day.

Good morning guys. 19 degrees this morning, going up to 41 - it's a heat wave! So many people trying to get into the car wash that's on my commute yesterday it clogged up traffic in two lanes and the nearby intersection so bad, even caused an accident

Everyone have a good weekend! Sounds like Dean will have his hands full!

That's a big 10-4
But yesterday it reached 56 in west central NE. the granddaughters are here and it's a full time job watching them.

Good morning guys. 40 degrees this morning, going up to 48 today. Yesterday made it up to 43 and it felt great!

Making progress on our master bath reno. I finished the tile work on the tub surround and got the tub set back down in place recently. Yesterday I closed the wall back up with new drywall, taped and did the initial coat of mudd.

Good morning guys.

36 degrees this morning, temp dropping off through the day. Looks like overnight tonight into tomorrow AM we're in store for a moderate to major freezing rain event with widespread 0.1-0.25" accumulation - potentially up to 0.5". We're under a 'winter weather advisory' currently and I wouldn't be surprised if we're upgraded to an 'ice storm warning'. Tomorrow's morning commute is going to be interesting. This same system will drop a foot or more of snow in Northern Michigan.

Well we had a great time with the Granddaughters they rearranged everything in the house, went thru all the drawers good thing I didn't have anything out that they shouldn't see. However they did find me in my office which is my collectable room and there eyes were everywhere I chased them out of there but they will probably find it again the next time they visit.
So last evening had a meeting to go to and afterwards it was cold again 15 degrees and now this morning it is 7 degrees. I am so sick of winter.
Stay warm out there!
