Good morning GTA! Happy Friday! Up at 0415 CT. Finishing up my coffee and trying to decide if I should go on to the chiropractor this morning. I donít have a first call (yet). Which is fine with me. Iím on call and itís supposed to rain & snow tomorrow. I should probably throw on sweats and head on in to the chiropractor.  ;D
Iíll call the office at 0800, but itíd be nice if I could take the day to rest before the weekend calls come in. Itíd be even nicer if I donít get called out this weekend. Iím already at 52 hours.  ;)

Good morning GTA! Up at 0430ish CT. Itís snowing and the temps are dropping. Itís a strange weather event in between a 57* day and a 42* day. Nobody really knows how much snow weíll get, some say 2ĒÖ our local guy says maybe 6-7ĒÖ but itís a wet snow and seems to be freezing on contact. Iím on call, but if I donít have to- Iím not going outside. Right now itís about 26* with the windchill itís 17*, supposed to snow all day maybe until 1800-2000 tonight. I may tink around in the garage todayÖ I really hope I donít get called out to work.

Mornin'
In the bar/mancave this morning. Enjoying a cup of joe and seeing what the late nighters and west coasters posted on the GTA while I was snug like a bug.
I got a pistol to get boxed and sent to it's new home today before the post office locks the doors at noon. Then the plan is to spend some time with the new 362 in it's new caliber .177. Maybe even dig a little more into that trigger group and see what I can dig up for it.
But first I had to fire up the old gas heater converted to propane to knock the chill off in here.

I got another one on the other side of the room but so far, one is doing the job pretty well. It's gonna be in the 60* today so I won't need it too long.

Good mornin' from the mancave.
I guess a hunk of tin underpenning came loose from the house just outside the bedroom window. The wind banged it against the house all night and woke me up about every hour. Finally at 3:00am I couldn't take it anymore and got and made coffee. While it brewed I grabbed a shower. Betty Lou and the dogs got up about an hour later.
Now I'm in the mancave planning the day's events. Mostly airgun adventures. It's rainy and windy out but not cold enough to fire up the stove. A hoodie will suffice providing I leave the door closed. So no shooting outside.... for now. During the restless night I came up with a few ideas for the 362 trigger and I'm gonna dig into that. Also need to round up another forward screw steel breech for another incoming 362.
The addiction continues....

Good morning GTA! Up at 0430 CT. I didnít get any calls yesterday and it snowed pretty much all day. I didnít do much & I was fine with that. My wife is singing today at Ch**ch and she doesnít want to drive. On call Iíll usually drive my van, but Iíll drive her in about 0815 & hang out. Ch**ch is at 1000. If I get called out, I guess itíll have to hold until I get back home & in my van. If I donít get any calls today, Iíll be impressed, and grateful.  ;D

Up at 7am to see it was 1 degree with a -8 wind chill. We're currently up to a balmy 3 degrees and -6 wind chill.

Plans?? A quiet day inside waiting to see if the Winter Storm warning that goes into effect at 7pm dumps what they say it might...lol.
What they say it might is high winds, gusts close to 40mph and 12-15 inches of the white garbage. Only thing I'll be shooting is snow
out the directional chute of a John Deere snowblower...lol.

I'm not surprised in Buffalo. I grew up just east of Cleveland in Ohio... I know all about the 'lake affect'.

I actually live above that Lake Erie snow zone and closer to Lake Ontario so most of that mess misses us or we get dusted, but the incoming
storm is coming from the north and over Ontario this time around.

Good morning GTA! Happy Monday! Up at 0330 CT, had my alarm set for 0400. Iíve been doing a lot of big jobs that I didnít write up for the past couple months and so it is this morning. The guy thatís coming with the equipment and helping me didnít write it up either. Oh well, we have 3 heat exchangers to replace in package units on the roof. Crane will be there at 0730, so I have to get there early to get setup. Itís going to be a long day, not so sure we can get it all done in one day, but weíll give it our best.

Weather Service was a bit off. We got 18 inches dumped on us overnight and still snowing...lol. 4 hours with a snow blower and shovel to
dig out. Now to just wait for it to finally stop and go do it all again....lol.
