    What? It rained a little this am...and then the sun came out....and 5 minutes later its raining again.

    Its almost like summer weather, Rains on one side of the road and the other side is dry.

    Cold, Rain, Sleet, Cold then to snow later. So much for Obuma Warming in Central Texas. Was 70 two days ago.

    Least we all forget Obuma was on the Global Warming give away to China and India wagon.

    It is overcast most all winter here. Let the blue sky's shine and you know it is going to be a frigid day.. I prefer the gray overcast and warmer temp's..

    But then.. The warmer temps and drizzling rain softens the packed snow on the road and I have to chain up all four tires to get any place..

    Time to U-Haul

    Right now we have a very fine blowing mist @29 degrees, it is freezing on contact and should it continue we will be in a solid coat of ice. Boy will the dunder heads be surprised when they try to speed off to work tomorrow.

    We used to almost jokenly tell folks visiting the PNW that we get exactly 10 days of full uninterrupted sunshine per year, and we feel guilty 9 of those, knowing it should be raining! Lol. You want to see weather change faster then you can read this post, come to OryGun in spring time!

    We are officially iced in, tree fell across the road and darn no gas for the chain saw and the bucket tractor battery is dead. Too bad the wife will have to take a few days off work until the ice melts and I can clear the road....... Errr I am sure I will find some gas somewhere and remember to flip the breaker on the tractors battery cable about then, so she can get out and back to work Monday morning :)

    Feast your eyes, gentlemen.
    No complaints here, although it appears we may have a few scattered clouds rolling in toward the weekend.

    Hmmm, a 5USG can of Gasoline would seem to be a Prudent Prep... as well as a Battery Charger... Just thinking out loud.... or at least a Syphon Hose..... and some 2 Cycle Oil...

    LOL I keep a 800 gallon tank of no tax Diesel and a 500 gallon tank of gasoline with spinner hand pumps, and the tractor batteries are fine hehe I put a in line breaker bar on the ground cable to keep one neighbor in particular from borrowing my tractor every time I left the property. 25 gallon drum of 2cycle oil in the shop beside the 55 gallon drum of bar oil. Best battery charger in the world is the battery bank for the solar system. Hehe 30 310AH batteries in line will jump anything.... But as far as the wifes boss goes........ We are iced in and a tree is across the road (Which is True) and I can't clear it due to a lack of fuel and battery. Which is semi true I get on the tractor and........... it won't even turn over :) The gas well that is for farm use since it is tax exempt ag fuel and that tree is off the farm across the gravel county road, that is maintained by a road commissioner that has a firm belief that God put it there, and God will take it away......... Whether it be snow or a tree. What amazes me for real is that the grid power is still on, usually if the wind blows half the CO-ops service area is without power.
