Monday Meanderings.

Was up at the usual workday 04:30AM and had coffee  with my pretty bride and then she was off to the truck company, no restaurant tonight.

Soon as she was gone Rigg’s and I got a nap. Then it was time to read some blogs and just sit around.Right now at 03:30PM I think we have reached the high for today which is 53 degrees, That was a surprise because they only predicted a high of 40 yesterday for today. A lot of the snow is melted and we have bare ground except for the shadows in the back yard. although the ground is soaked from all the runoff. We do need to store as much of this spring runoff as we can in case we have another dry summer like last year. I made a short run to the store and noticed that the highway dept had brought a brand new post and finished the remount of the mailbox even with new concrete, really a first class job.

Not much else going on I am going to have to start shopping for tires for fiver soon, I want to go one load range heavier than whatever is on there, and I have been throwing around the idea of using LT instead of ST , If anybody has any opinions or experience in this change let me know.

That’s about it for today, Everyone have a great week and be safe out there. Sam & Donna…


  1. Glad to hear your snow is melting and you are getting some warmer temperatures. Spring can't be too far in the future.

  2. We are waiting for a major snow storm here beginning at 3AM tomorrow...5-10"...Crap.

  3. When I lived in NC I considered getting a rain barrel system to catch water, but never got beyond thinking about it. I had a well that ran off an electric pump, and wanted an emergency supply of water available in case we lost electricity for any length of time.

  4. Glad to hear your mailbox is fixed. We are under a winter storm advisory/warning (right on the edge) for tomorrow.....AGAIN. I guess old man winter is making us suffer since we won't be here next year.

  5. Glad that the snow is melting up that way... So when we come through we don't wanna be shovelling our way back to Wisconsin!
