is running rampant in the old homestead. Got out today and used the neighbors plow turck to clear the side yard of about 12" of snow. Can't get out to do much and space is limited in the warm garage and it is full of the honey-do things. They are winding down and then I can get to finishing the 48M Homelite mower deck that I started last April when I got injured. Have all the new bolts and such for it and hoping it will not take long. That being said, it would still be nice to be able to get outside and do something not in the frigid cold. I guess I can look at it this way, One day closer to spring and being outside. Have a good night, Thanks. Roger.

It's been about 2 months of cold/windy/rainy/snowy/below zero here, starting to feel a bit of the cabin fever myself. Just think how nice it will be when the warm weather of spring comes.

You all need some sort of winter time in the house type of hobby to pass the time. Right now I'm building a set of speakers for the stereo. Woodworking, wiring etc. Lots of fun and I am hardly noticing the crappy weather.

That is fine IF you have place to do the work. Mama never liked my sawdusty messy, hammering in the house much!  I have done some things in the house garage, which is a little warmer when not too cold out, but even that gets left and takes many days waiting for temps to be right, stain and varnish to dry slowly and such things. Glued items to dry too.  Man! Now I want to make something again. Always wanted to try to make big puter desk and some tall book shelves for my "office".

I made a pair of wood cabinet speakers for my then fiancee and me...31+ years ago.  Still use them everyday....a winter project then too....

Ever since a tore another rotator cuff in my left shoulder I've been going nut so around this house, don't really have a lot to do with the weather, but cabin fever has set in big time. Hopefully give it sometime, rest and at least it won't hurt 24/7.

I know there's many way worst off than me, but right now being in the chair with two useless legs and a shoulder that aches like all get out, and this weather and plowing snow has got me spinning circles.  literally :loosing_it:

I'm giving some SERIOUS consideration to weighing anchor on the HMS Rainmaker and setting sail for ports South.

 

It's been too danged cold for too danged long here.

 

Highs in the 70s in FL looks a lot more appealing that highs in the Teens and 20's here.

 

ETA:

 

Said something to the wife, and she asked "When are we leaving". :D :D :D
