Fred, I don't expect you'll have any reason to be back in Columbia, but if somehow you ever do pass through, Please give me a call or PM. I'd love to take you out to the fort, and stop in for a rest at my neighborhood pizza shop. Today(Sunday) Ron Cribbs and I spent several hours in the beautiful 50 degree Sun burning circles with some of my buddies. Saturday night we played in my shop, then stuffed ourselves with barbeque Holley made for us, talked about all sorts of things and watched Gold Rush and NASA TV. While we were out flying today, TD Bandit from Central Georgia called to see what we were up to. I have some great friends here.
Rusty

Creatures of the forest.



Took a little stroll around the property this morning, not easy walking for me or the creatures. Rabbit, deer, dog (Coyote) bird, squirrel tracks and others. This deer was having a hard time, more bounding than walking.

Yikes, how do they all not freeze to death? That makes my soft underbelly cold.

Their coat thickens in the winter and they are acclimated to the cold. Deer love cold weather and are quite active in the winter. Cold weather is good for the rutt.

Thanks for the invite... not sure when we will explore that side of the world on wheels but you are in line with our typical run from Texas to WVA then down to Atlanta than back home circular, see the family, route.

I have always planned to stop near Columbia as a good end of drive day rest place. And If we do plan another trip I will coordinate with you

Well, 2/3 the way through summer here and it's still raining.  Got about 2" in half an hour a couple of days ago.  Probably 4"-5" over the last 4-5 days.  Not that I'm complaining. Thumbs Up   Rain this time of year is great for us.  Our lawns were competely brown and in the last 5 days are back to green again.  Green grass don't burn.  Always a big worry with fires this time of year around here.
So, I'm enjoying this.  Still getting around in shorts and tee shirt.  A little humid but not uncomfortable.  Thunderstorms every day.  I love this weather.   Clapping Still warm enough that you don't mind getting a bit wet.  Not so good for flying or building, but I don't get to do much of that anyway.

No snow here, just a cold, raw day, with the sun going away and the wind picking up. Got a big mug of hot chocolate, and the shop well on the way to warming up, with the intention of getting back on the Hurricane project.

Looks like a good day to hide out on the hill...

Here's my house in the morning of Oct 26th this year:



And here are my girls after our morning walk lol!



Since that the snow has melted, and it has snowed again a few times. Right now it is raining but still some snow left as the temps stay around or below freeze.

Our predicted dusting and flurry mounted to 3". This is a minor snowfall for the Philadelphia area. However, this was a real wet and slippery snow. As usual the townships were unprepared, no brine was sprayed, no salt spreaders on the roads the evening before and now we have a real mess out there currently. Living in a hilly area means that unless your a skilled driver or have 4WD your not getting up the hills. Ken

Here in RI it's been snowing steadily all day. The previous "winter weather advisory" was upgraded this morning to a "winter storm alert" through 7am tomorrow morning. There's about 7" accumulation so far.

Lynne and I had been invited to a family-gathering today in Plymouth, MA.. but that's a LONG drive, so we cancelled. It just doesn't make sense to take chances under these conditions.

I baked cookies like Eric did.. but mine were "Toll-House".. a double-batch (90 cookies.. Laughing ) I make em' from scratch using my trusty "Kitchen-Aid" mix-master!

It's been pretty mild here for the most part. Last Monday it went from 57°F raining to 27°F snowing. Coating everything with ice, the roads were hell for a few days...the rain washed the pretreated salt crap off the roads plus people forgot how to drive in it.

It's been below freezing since, 19°F right now. Cold
